Connect, play and charge iOS devices through FM bank on Corvette factory radios.

Thanks to the IL-C5FM, Corvette vehicles owners are able to connect and play iOS devices directly into the radio via the FM band. The direct connection to the antenna, eliminates most static/interferences that can occur with wireless FM transmitters. All the driver has to do is designate a radio preset as a “iOS channel” (87.9 or 88.3MHz), turn on ignition/radio, pair smart device and enjoy favorite tunes or music applications (e.g. Pandora, Apple music, Spotify etc.), GPS app (e.g. Waze etc.), podcast and more. Unlike wireless FM transmitters, this modulator kit connects directly to the C5 radio antenna socket to provide high quality sound as you would expect from a commercial FM radio station without having to switch between stations when traveling through different areas. With the radio turned "ON"; the module interrupts incoming antenna signal, delivering the strongest signal from Apple IOS device. Plug-n-play Installation requires connecting the radio antenna to module and connecting module to radio antenna socket (Antenna adapter included). The IL-C5FM provides FM radio quality sound and is a great alternative for 1997-04 Corvette radios lacking dedicated AUX input.
