Aux in Hiss - A Free Solution Perhaps?

Ah hah! Not sure if this is a Eureka moment or if it's simply further evidence of my contracting "Granny" (She had senile-dementia) :crazy:

Was sitting in the car this morning, iPhone plugged into the Aux hoping I could finally find a solution to the hiss and interference problem that would save me pennies.

Now, in my case I only find hiss and interference because I have to have the car radio sound turned up so high to actually hear what is coming from the iPod function.

Yes you can adjust the volume on the iPod whilst a track is playing, but this is limited only to whatever the Master volume is set to - If you click on "Settiings" then "iPod" scroll down and press "Volume Limit", push the slider to max (making sure you've turned the car radio down first!").

Hey presto, next time you play a track you've got normal level coming through the Aux. As a result you lose the hiss associated with having the car radio volume set so high.

You wouldn't believe I worked as a radio presenter and producer for 20 years would you??? :D

Oops! I forgot to add actually, I still get noise if the phone is connected to the cigarette charger at the point it is playing as an iPod, but playing from the phone's battery the problem doesn't exist anymore thanks to the adjustment to the master volume in the phone.

So the solutions for me are to either charge the phone before playing, recharge on long trips then start playing tracks again, or listen to local commercial radio until my ears bleed or I die of boredom whichever comes first.....Or, OK, one of those earthing thingies :rolleyes:[/b]

I only ever get noise when the charger is connected. Never had any problem running off iphone battery. Just waiting for my ground loop thing to arrive.
