USB/aux adapter for OEM stereo

Hi, since months ago I was looking a way to connect an USB memory to my OEM stereo, because I dont like aftermarket stereos looks, except for DVD units , and those are more than my personal needs, yesterday found this adapter that fits my radio, bought this morning and will arrive in 4-6weeks because comes from China, I hope this will work fine. Anyone else in the forum has used something like this?

I have but I bought mine from a local shop and picked it up in person.

And I gotta say the build of the kit I am using looks a lot better (as in built better, mine has brushed black aluminium casing and the ipod connector also locks into the ipod) than the one you just purchased.

This is their website: GTA Car Kits for iPhone, iPod, AUX and MP3 players

Another reason I decided to buy from them is that it is cheaper than buying it from ebay. It was $100 CAD for me (no shipping/tax). Also I didnt have to wait 4-6 weeks and deal with the hassle that it might get "lost" during transit.

BTW How much was this kit that you purchased?

The thing is that I'm in Panama, here nobody sells this kind of stuff, I saw the gta adapter but I dont like ipod (just preferences) instead choose this one with usb, for $58.55 US dollars + $12.00 shipping.
