    I have an aftermarket alpine headunit. Usually the easiest way to use your ipod in the car is with an FM transmitter or the tape adapter, but I've heard that the song quality is not as good. To directly connect to your headunit they make a cable that plugs into your headphone jack on your ipod, and into the input jack in the back of your headunit. If you don't have an input, like mine did, they made an adapter for about $50 that plugged into the output... and then into my ipod and also wired in and charged it.... not sure if that will work on a stock headunit though.

    Yeah, this was initially what I was going to go with. But then I decided, among other things, that I wanted to control the ipod from my deck.

    The ipod harness I have I purchased at the stereo shop I got my deck from. I don't know if it is the "GM" harness, just that I can totally controll my ipod from my Alpine deck.

    This is what you need. It controls the iPod from your factory radio. Through the iPod wherever you want, you don't have to even look at it. Crutchfield is always out of stock but there are other sites that have it, I think you can also go to a Tweeter store and get one.

    Sorry, the above post is wrong. That one is just to connect any audio device with right left inputs.
    Here is the real link for iPod control.

    DAYUM for that much I would rather get SFCs. I bought an FM transmiter from best buy for $39 and it works great. Here is one that looks better than mine, cost a little more.

    I have this one:iPod2Car (PXHGM1) Peripheral Electronics, as posted above and it works great with the stock head unit.... You do however have to get rid of the cd changer to used this, if you have one. But you can control it through the steering wheel controls and the controls of the stock head unit. Just have to hit the Aux button. the sound is high Quality.

    Ok...I have a question...Just got a JVC H/U that advertises it's self as ipod ready. My husband got it for me for Chrsitmas, so I wasn't there to test it out...it has a USB port that will play from a jump drive and they said that you can hook up your ipod to the USB and it will play from there too...only problem is, it doesn't. Jump drive works, ipod doesn't. I 've called around and Best Buy says it should work that they installed the same HU in other cars and it works fine through USB, JVC says I will need to purchase an Interface adapter......anyone know?

    One other question....I have a Mac at home w/ all my music on it. I put a few songs on my jump drive to see if it would work w/ my JVC and it did. So I went back to put more music on it and now my Mac will not use the drive. It will not let me copy to or from or delete.....but the jump drive works fine on a PC? Did the JVC fry my jump drive?

    This is why I like Panasonic....

    The usb port only reads Mp3/WMA so if your ipod songs are in AAC format it wont read them.

    With some head units, if you interface the I Pod from the rear HU aux port, then you lose the ability to navigate the I Pod and have to do it thru the HU instead. One HU I was looking at had you searching thru your songs alphabetically, and it was a PIA. As always, do your research.
