firstly i say thanks to GTA CAR KIT.
I found your product by watching video on you tube gta car kit for honda civic 2006.
i did try aux wire for ipod before GTA Car kit that i bought from Best Buy, but when i installed aux was working separately from stereo power and radio fm stop working after install that aux wire.
shipping was on accurate time, i receive shippment after order within 6 days.
actually i didnt install GTA Car Kit my self , because previous aux cable install from best buy technician, i have to remove them from those guys & return to best buy & they will install my new gta car kit, they took only 35 minutes to install gta kit
i am using iphone & android tablet working fantastic radio fm working very well its look like factory made, i install like that the both cable aux & iphone are detachable, when i need cable fr iphone i put in jack after use i remove this. gta jack fit on empty space use less space under down the stereo. i am very satisfied with gta car kit it is awesome
i already recommend this product to my all friend
“I found your product on Youtube/Google search.
I chose the GTA Car Kit after trying a lot of other options. I tried 3 different FM transmitters and it just became a hassle always trying to find a “free” station to play my music on and especially when you like to listen to your music loud, hearing static every couple of seconds gave me headaches.
I also thought about getting a car deck to replace the factory car stereo but that would have costed me too much, especially if i included installation charges, (also the possibility of my car getting broken into and having the deck stolen).
Therefore I chose the GTA Car Kit and I am also very happy with the product, the sound quality is clear 24/7 and it sits nicely in the dash board where it cannot be seen. The fact that I can control my ipod audio straight from my factory stereo just makes the product even better.
Shipping took 3 days.
Installation was alright, which is important considering I have no experience in installing anything else besides pouring the window washer fluid. The video was extremely helpful though. I did need a couple extra tools but I was able to borrow them off my friend.
I am using my iPod touch on it and my friends ipods and iphones as well. I ran it into the dashboard where i leave my ipod plugged into.
I would recommend GTA Car Kit to my friends.”
“My review of the GTA Car Kit (Ipod/Itouch/MP3 player) – my contribution to this forum.
I am truly pleased with my purchase of the GTA Car Kit. In fact, WOW!!! The Ipod/MP3 player is user friendly in many ways. This is the best unit I have seen on the market. After many weeks of research, I made the decision. It is by far the most impressive system available. The price is reasonable and it well worth the cost. I will not bore you with all the details. I will list some selling points that were important to me.
The GTA unit is very small and easy to install. There is a YouTube video explaining the entire process. The process took me 20 minutes to install and I did not need a professional to mount it. I took my time and concentrated on the installation. It helped to watch the video multiple times. A long medium sized screwdriver and a wedge tool to get the front stereo panel off is required. The module was quick to install and the process was exactly as in the video. It is literally a snap in place installation. There is no soldering or wire cutting and no need to disconnect the car battery.
The module comes with two wires that either can connect to the Ipod. One cable can connects to the bottom of the Ipod. This charges the Ipod when the engine is running. It keeps the Ipod battery from dying on long trips. The other connector is a 3.5mm that connects to the top of the Ipod if charging is not required. This is a long enough cable so back seat occupants can select and interact with the Ipod. I appreciate that the manufacturer provided a long cable. Some sellers do not provide this cable or it is very short.
Interacting and playing music via GTA Car Kit is not difficult at all. You can use the radio head unit to select and change songs. It is very simple to understand and it does not limit you to a preset number of playlist. Be aware many mp3 players that restrict the number of playable playlist.
Here is why I am extremely happy with this unit:
– Plug and play ? connect your Ipod and play songs immediately. Some units take awhile to categorize to start to play.
– Use the ipod cable or 3.5mm cable is up to you.
– Supports my second gen and latest Itouch 32Gb unit without issues or restrictions
The song starts again where I left off even after a week of not playing music. In other words, if I turn off the car at song 101, and I come back three days later, it starts where I left off. I have a DICE unit on my BMW that starts at the same first song even if I return four hours later. Imagine turning on the car and the same song plays every time?at the beginning?
– I am happiest most with how I can continue to interact with the Ipod while it is plugged into the Ipod cable. To do this, plug in the Ipod and leave stereo setting on D1. I am able to use the Ipod to select song as it continues to charge. I can see the songs and playlist on the Ipod screen. It is fully interactive. Unlike my DICE unit, I cannot interact with the Ipod. As such, I cannot see the songs or playlist.
– Music sounds phenomenal – There are no whirling or whizzing noises when the music is playing.
– Response time is awesome – songs start immediately when the stereo on.
– RDM button – pick a playlist and the GTA module with randomize the songs within the playlist…truly awesome.
GTA Car Kits also sells an optional adjustable universal car holder. My advice is for you to get one. The holder is strong and it connects securely onto the air vent. The designers did a great job. It firmly holds the Ipod where it is visible and easy to use. There are cushions on the side to keep it from scratching the Ipod when it is in the holder. To clamp the Ipod onto the holder, just squeeze the sides of the holder. Push a button at the rear of the holder, which is easily accessible, to release grip. I like how the Ipod cable fits snuggly at the base of the holder. It does not interfere with the holder. Hurray to the designer of the holder. By the way, I use it to hold my Blackberry phone at times too.
I hope this helps you in deciding what Ipod/mp3 player to purchase. I truly understand how difficult this process can be. Needless to say, I am pleased to give GTA Car Kits my business and my hard-earned dollars. I am confident GTA Car Kit will continue to be successful with their product and business.”
Review from Honda Odyssey Club forum
“This is awesome! I just bought one for my Honda Odyssey, the package arrived just a couple of days.
I followed the instructions (except I drilled on the passenger side instead, since the box will be that side anyway and just to simplify) and was able to install it right away with no problems or what so ever.
The best part of this, the product works. You forgot to mention that we can control the iPod from the steering wheel controls. That’s the first thing I checked and it did.
amazing kit i got it just this afternoon like an eager kid and actually installed it in 10 mins . given that i removed the parts the night before .
amazing quality and sound that it produces CD quality and its very simple and compact….. i highly recommend it.
oh one thing get yourself a magnet cuz it took me almost an hour to put the last 2 screw back in cuz it? kept falling on me …but the GTA car kit for the accord is highly recommended wonderful product.
” It’s a terrific product. I intalled the GTA Car Kit on my 2008 Toyota Corolla and it works great, just as advertised.
The sound commimg from the car stereo is fantastic. The video guide that shows how to install the car kit was a big help. I would recommend this product no problem.”
(comment received on Facebook wall)
Just wanted to let you know that your product is fantastic. It does what it is supposed to. I really like the hybrid mode. The YouTube video is really helpful too. I installed the kit in 30 minutes on my Accord 2006 and I’m enjoying the music from my iPhone4 in the car.
I will recommend this product to my friends.
I already have factory AUX output in my Camry, but I was not completely happy with it. I already have your kit on my Honda Odyssey 2005. And I noticed that when I am driving Camry and listening to my iPhone with regular AUX, I miss small but important features like automatic charging, ability to switch songs from the steering wheel, automatic pause when I turn off the radio and song numbers.
So, I purchased Camry kit and very happy with it. Your installation videos are awesome and it was really easy to do.
I also purchased your perfect car holder and installed it on the passenger side vents. Very convenient accessory as my iPhone became real GPS (I use free MapQuest app).
My daughter thinks that I am cool ;).
Thanks a bunch!
Update: I ran the ipod cable through the passenger vents and I think it is much cleaner solution because there is no hanging cables anymore. “
Bluetooth and iPhone/iPod/AUX Kits for Mazda 3 2004-2008June 11, 2011
“Just got my GTA kit for my 06 Mazda and I am very impressed. I had tried another brand and could not get it to work. Found you on the Internet and since I am local I had my kit in 20 minute.
When I mentioned I had trouble with the other unit the rep from GTA stayed with me while I hooked it up just to make sure that it worked with no trouble.
The unit worked as advertised and I will recommend your company to everyone.
Thanks for the great service”
“The aux jack on my Camry was broken, so I searched on Youtube for Toyota Camry AUX and found your website. I chose GTA because it was easy to install because you showed me how to install it on the video.
The shipping was 3 days. Installation was pretty easy. It took me about an hour and half, longer than it should have, since I didn’t route the wires correctly. I ran the cable through the aux jack hole. I really like the integration with Camry controls and ability to change songs.
I would recommend GTA Car Kit especially given that the aux replacement part on the Toyota cost more money than this product, and I get more functionality with this product.”
