Default Multifunctional car adapter USB/ipod/AUX

Hi guys! I'm looking for an adapter to connect my Apple devices to the car radio and listen to high quality music fro them. Would be perfect if it also supports USB, SD cards and devices with AUX connector. To have it all in one kit...Do you have any recommendations? So far I've found only one car adapter AUX Link that has all these functions. Does anyone have it to share his opinion? Can you suggest other brands? Thanks!

Only way I've seen it work properly is to replace the heqd unit. I've tried many ones and they all sucked even the OEM made Chrysler one I used on the jseep.

Use crutchfield's tool to find head units that fit your car: Find what fits your car - Crutchfield

Easiest way to get all the functionality you're looking for.

I can tell you about my experience. When I took the decision to buy AUX Link, I was trying to find the best deal and it's really much cheaper to purchase it at the official online shop AUX Car Kits. It was delivered in just five days. At first I tried to install it myself, but experienced some problems extracting the OEM car audio. I didn't have the right tools, so in the end I had it installed in the nearest service center. It took just 10 minutes. So far totally satisfied with the adapter.

Pluses:

- supports Apple devices, USB flash, SD, SDHC, MMC memory cards, and there is also a 3.5 mm plug for other mobile gadgets (MP3 players, Android and Windows smartphones, tablets, laptops, netbooks, PSP and so on).
- great sound
- can be used as a charger
- with optional Bluetooth dongle works perfectly as a Bluetooth AUX car adapter
- music control with buttons on the steering wheel and buttons on the car stereo (really convenient)
- compatible with all music formats
- free and fast delivery
- takes very little space and doesn't spoil the interior
- now I can enjoy all my favourite music without carrying piles of CDs.

Disadvantages:

- a bit expensive as I also purchased additional Bluetooth dongle to use the adapter as a Bluetooth car kit
- couldn't easily extract the car stereo so I had to go to service center

But taking everything into account, I believe it's a good price-quality ratio. So from my point of view it's worth buying.
