I just picked up my Smart Orphan yesterday and the dealer said they don't have the jacks for the MP3 hookup in the glove box. Does anyone know where I can purchase this jack/cord? Also, can I plug an IPhone into this jack and use the iPod on the iPhone through this connection? And lastly, if that is possible, will my phone ring through the audio speakers on the car?

Ok, I lied, another question; where can you buy aftermarket goodies for the Smart online. It would be nice to get sirius radio and a between seat armrest.

I bought one at Best Buy for $4 and use it with my iPhone. :)

As mentioned, be sure, if you have a 2G iPhone, to get a cable that works with this, belkin or others; iPhone 3G uses standard cables. iPod touch are also standard 1/8"stereo.

I picked up a power cord and mini-stereo cord as a set at Target. I can control the ipod through the power cord connector that is plugged into the cigarette lighter. it works really well.

Kevin, did you get his mini stereo plug at radio shack too?

I picked up my smart 09 in December. It's a passion, and has the jack in the glove box. I plug a mini-stereo male plug into it, and plug the other end (mini-stereo male plug) into my iPhone. Both ends look identical.

When I play podcasts or music, I can select AUX and hear stuff from my iPhone(3G). Unfortunately, when someone calls, while the music will fade out nicely, the ringtone just plays on the phone. My original iPhone would play the ringtone through the stereo, but I had to buy that special adaptor to get the plug to work in the iPhone. Hopefully you have a 3G iPhone.

Hopefully that helps...

You can buy the cord at Radio Shack or Wal-Mart... You just want a male stereo jack on both ends, and they both need to be the small size (can't think of it right now). You should be able to plug in your iPhone. I use my iPod all the time. And, I'd be surprised if your phone actually rang thru the car speakers...but I don't know.

There are online places for lots of stuff. Check out smartmadness.com - that is one of many. I'm sure others will give you more sites to check out! There is definitely a between-seat armrest available.
