    Is there any IPod kit that hooks up to the factory radio that can be controled through the factory radio?
    I have seen the kit from Periphial(spelling) but I was told the radio has to have the "SAT" button for this to work.
    I have the base single CD player in my truck.
    Thanks in advance for you help.

    What exactly do you want 'controlled' via the factory radio?

    I have an ipod2car PXDP. It hooks up directly to the factory radio. You have volume controll & track up/down through the stereo. You can't use the factory radio to select playlists. I'm not sure there are many kits that can pick & select playlists (so to speak). I also have usage of my steering wheel controls also.

    Do some google searching, there's lots of kits & info out there.

    Thanks for the info. I really just want my ipod to play without an fm tranmitter and skipping to the next song.
    It looks like the link to mp3carpros has a pretty good product and will probable look into that.
