    Just wanted to add more positive results with the Mpow Ground Loop Noise Isolator, I have deployed them in Gen2 Prius' with excellent results over long periods of use. Tested with iPhone and old click-wheel iPods while parked (using accessory mode to eliminate AC system, road noise, etc.) Much easier than fighting Toyota over the TSB.

    Being a moderate audiophile with sensitive ears, I am very familiar with these ground loop and line noise issues in music performance/recording scenarios. These little $10 modules work great and may even reduce/eliminate the hum you get when patching into a home amplifier when the music device is plugged into AC power. This can happen in homes/offices with bad grounding or other wiring issues.

    Tip: I suggest patching them in directly at the AUX jack (at the bottom of your armrest storage box) and running your old audio ext. cable from the other end so you don't risk extra wear on the Mpow jacks.
