I have the 06 with the 6 cd changer in dash. What is the best way to add an aux jack?
For a simple input I recommend either the grom or Aux Mod basic (if you can find it in stock)
If you're using an apple device: For ipod specific the most commonly used (and with fewest complaints on the forum) are the grom ipod and the Audiolink. Note that if you went with the OEM module you'd get text display on the LCD however the ipod would be locked out.

I just asked the same thing. Seems like there should be an easy way to patch into the AUX Button. I have seen where people have added the little power adapter for charging, but I would be happy with just a plug in, and no dash tear apart.
For the first year or so that the 3 was released several people did a hack to the circuit board to input audio while playing a 'silent' CD. It worked but a couple of people fried their HU doing it.... granted they probably weren't terribly good at it. Currently there are a plethora of devices that allow you to input audio, use a USB flash drive or SD card, or integrate and control an ipod/iphone. Personally I'd much rather spend a small amount of money for something which simply plugs in vs. an unreliable hack. My
I merged these two topics since they were basically asking the exact same thing.
