Re: ipod player (CONDORSTRIKE)

you all are having this same problem? wow, I use mine all the time and have never heard any sort of distortion what-so-ever. I got my cable at radio shack and i'm using a 30 gb video i-pod. what are you all using?

I had this exact problem with my iPod through the aux in jack in the glovebox. The noise was still there even with a higher quality shielded audio cable.
Then I found that when I have the iPod plugged into a car charger at the same time, the noise is gone. I think it is a problem with different ground levels between the iPod battery and car battery that causes the distortion.
Whenever I plug my iPod into the car charger now, the noise is gone- I think because they are then both on the same ground (theoretically doing the exact same thing as a ground loop isolator, and charging my iPod at the same time )
