Rear Aux Input??????

Whats up guys! I have an 08 G8 GT. I was looking through the menu on the radio and it gave me the option to turn on/off a rear aux. input. Does anyone have any idea what this is or what I could use this for? Thanks

Rear aux is the plug-in at the rear of your car radio. Unlike the front aux, the rear aux is a multiprong molex type connector. Supposedly, if hooked up correctly, the rear aux will allow the driver to control their ipod from the steering wheel. I dont know anyone that has hooked up anything to the rear aux.

You could use our gallery and post up pics of the radio here on this board.

Please PM me. I think I saw your message, but wasn't able to get enough info from it. I'd like to get a backup camera too. I don't care about the audio hook up, but I might find the info useful. Do you have the specs on the camera, and perhaps some pics of the hook up?

Thanks!

I have a dvd player and PS2 hooked up to my G8 GT's rear aux. I had to put a VIM Module and converter A/V switches in it to hook everything up though. The radio has weird A/V hookups so you'll have to use the converter thing to hook our red, white and yellow jacks up to it.

Sorry I haven't been here, but JHP has all the VIM stuff now. I purchased the VIM with the autoswitch and the new cables. Camera came from E-Bay, but one of the guys on the Grrrr8 board got a nice lookin license plate frame from Amazon.com.
