    I hear that there is a cord available that provides a direct IPod connection to the back of the stock stereo? Anybody have experience with this? Who makes it? Where is it available?

    Thanks!

    Yes I have one on my stock JBL stereo. I have to select CD #6 to play from my Nano. I purchased it through Circuit City (now closed) about 2 years ago. I'm sure it's something Best Buy would carry. The price was less than $80.

    I got the metra adapter from circuit city. It'll get you audio, but no control. Other folks have the USA Spec adapter which does have the controls too.

    There was a site that I found a few months ago that carried the control box, cable and 5v adapter for the iPhone 3g. Thinking about getting it.

    +1 for the USA Spec...A bit more then the metra-But you have full control of the iPod thru the stereo, get text display, and it sounds pretty good imo. Also super easy to install.
