Car aux cord

Post by Imnotasiain »

I'm driving a 2006 Prius. It has an aux cord outlet. I've gone to many phone and appliance stores around toul kork but none of them have an aux cord.

Currently I'm using a basic Bluetooth adapter but for some reason I can barely hear the audio output through my speakers. I have to turn the volume all the way up just to reach a normal speaking level of music.

The FM radio works at a proper volume. It's only whenever I connect via Bluetooth that I suddenly can't hear the music.

Has anyone seen an aux cord while journeying to various shops? Because it seems that I need one in order to enjoy my daily dose of 4 non blondes

I guess a mini-jack to cinch cable will do thrick if you want to connect your phone output to the car radio.

Just to be sure, have you also turn the volume up on your phone (or what ever device you connect via bluetooth)?

Is that the cord with like a small headphone plug at each end? There is (or at least was last year- couldn't find it this year but it was so hot i didn't look for long) a Japanese "everything for $3" type shop like Daiso on Norodom, somewhere between the 136 and 172 intersections. I remember them having quite a range of cables.

No usually the radio side of the connection requires cinch / RCA plugs like these:

The mini jack goes into the phone.

What he said is what I'm looking for. One male end on each side. The aux female end connection is only one jack. So I'm looking for 1 cord with 1 Jack on both ends of it

Mr. D.I.Y. in the Sorya Shopping Center (St 63.) has cords with one 3.5 mm plug on either side.
I bought such a cable there about a week ago.

It's quite a big shop and has lots of different types of audio cables and adapters.

Edit: I just saw you have already found one. Funny, I overlooked the last post.
I'll keep the reply up for others who might come across this post in the future.

Aux cord is a 3.5mm headphone jack on each end. Whatever that is that you have pictures is something more specialist.
