    Is it stereo? I've got a stereo audio cord that I use in my car to listen to an aux music player (mp3 player, ipod, etc.). It works fine with my ipod nano but when I plug it into my Commando to listen to music it only comes out in mono and not stereo. The plug is a straight plug, not a 90 degree angle plug. Is the Commando's audio jack not stereo?? I thought it was. Trying to listen to Pandora in the car through the stereo but the mono just won't cut it. Suggestions? :mad:

    Mine is stereo with either headphones or the cassette adapter (remember cassette tapes?) that I use in my work truck. If it's not going all the way in it won't be stereo. Try another plug in acc. to see if it is just your adapter.

    It's because your plug is not going in all the way. I have experienced the same issue with my headphones that do not clear the rim of the housing, the area where the orange seal meets with the phone to provide water-proofing/resistance. For my car adapters I have shaved off a bit of the plastic (I used a Dremel but you can use a razor blade too if you don't mind the cut marks) surrounding the metal plug so the entire plug will go in.

    My Sony MDR-V6 headphones have a large metal plug so I don't use those. Thought of making a custom adapter from an old pair of earbuds that fit...but we'll see.
