My Metra has both the 3.5mm and iPod connectors. I paid $30+$10 S&H for it on ebay
, but I think it's discontinued, and hard to find now.
I have an 08 with the JBL
factory stero, and it works fine. My only problem is the iPod connector does not charge iPod Touch. Sonmone on here told me it is because of new firmware on the iPod Touch. I usually use a Sensa mp3 player, so the charging is not an issue. I plug the Sensa to a 12V to USB charger, and use the 3.5mm connector for the audio.
My daughter uses her iPod Touch every now and then. I just plug in the 3.5 mm jack for the audio, and charge it using the USB power adapter, the same way I plug in the Sensa. It's not as convenient as other setups, and there is no control from the stero, but for $40, it works way better than a FM transmitter.
