Radio aux cord

I have a 95 Camaro with the Delco Bose radio in it and was wondering if anyone knows if you can hook up an aux cord for an MP3 player?

Just put in an aftermarket radio. So worth it. For around $100 you could get a headunit, dash install kit and wiring harness adapter. Then you could get one with aux, USB, or even Bluetooth.

There are aux cords that you plug into your cigarette lighter and run thru a dead radio station, but they work like crap. Also some that use a tap player if you have one, still not the best. Plus an aftermarket headunit could make your stock speakers sound better.

If you don't care about sound quality your best option is to get the cassette tape adapter if you have a cassette deck. They cost $5-$15 at Walmart or one of those shops. They're all the same low quality and don't last very long, so buy the cheapest.

If you don't have a tape deck, you can buy the FM transmitter which plugs into your cigarette lighter and broadcasts to an FM signal. These are more expensive than a tape adapter and still pretty medicore quality at best.

Your best option is, like stated before, to upgrade your headunit. You don't need anything fancy but even a basic upgrade will improve your overall sound a lot and will make your audio setup significantly better than it was previously and blow away the above options. If you go this route, make sure you buy a deck with the inputs you are looking for and get a decent brand. Sometimes spending a little bot more will make a big difference. Plan to spend at least $100 for everything you need if you go this route.
