    I am wanting to connect my ipod to my stock stereo and want to keep it as simple as possible. I have tried to search but everything leads me back to the USA Spec PA15. Can i just get and $5 aux cable from somewhere and connect it to the back of the stereo to the headphone jack? Something like this,http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103855&filterName=Length&filterValue=4-6+ft, or http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3449315&filterName=Length&filterValue=4-6+ft. Will either of these even connect to the back of the stereo? Using the controls on the steering wheel is really not that big of a deal to me. Thanks for any input.

    I could be wrong...but I don't think there are any other ports to hook into on the back of the stock stereo. Most of the ipod hooks ups utilize the external CD port.

    There's always the FM transmitters...but they're AWEFUL!!

    I guess that was my real question, were there any ports in the back of the stereo. Thanks, guess i'll go with one of the USA Spec or Grom units.
