    Default XM Portable Radio Install for AUX Need Switched Power Source

    I picked up a Simple brand AUX box to use my portable Pioneer INNO with the aux port of the stock radio. It is a "simple" install and works so much better than the poor FM modulation the Pioneer has. I have one concern though. I still use the cigarette adapter to power the cradle for the Pioneer which is hot all the time, I am worried that unless I unplug the adapter each time I leave the car it may run the battery down. Does anyone know of a ign switched 12v source I can tap to hook up a female cigarette plug to so the adapter will not be powered when the ignition is off????

    One addition to that, The harness is at the top left corner above the silver computer box,it's easiest to remove the computer box under the removeable foot well panel to get to the connector with the three taped wires. I did this for my Inno also and it works awesome.
