So in the SI there is the AUX outlet hole which the dealer said I can plug my ipod in there?
But will I be able to control my ipod through the deck or is it cheap where I have to use my actual ipod to change songs??

what cord do I buy to connect my ipod to the AUX outlet?

sorry, the answer is nope. You have to buy an extra ipod adapter to hook into your HU to be able to control your ipod from HU.:coffee:

Ah lame..yea if you get that cheap wire to connect your ipod to AUX it will suck cuz you can't play through HU and the sound quality blows...
I have the alpine deck with Ipod adapter to the deck and it plays through the deck with full quality sound, search through playlists etc.. which is a necessity for me.
Is there an ipod adapter like that for the si HU??

What do you mean the sound quality sucks. Its right on... if it sounds like crap, it's the bitrate of the songs you are downloading. I use the AUX plug on my car with my nano-pod and it sounds great.

hmm..well I used to use those *** ipod adapters that plug into cigarette lighters and you had to use it through the FM radio and they had **** sound quality plus the volume was low...
But maybe the AUX plug makes it CD quality? do u play it through an FM channel?

No it plays through the head unit. The head unit picks up any signal being put into the AUX port. It's good quality, trust me. If you arent getting good sound, then your ipod EQ is messed up or you have the volume down on your ipod.

Yes, it's simple, and no, you don't need a new head unit, who said that?
Like WTF!

There are many threads of how to do this, if you pop the centre upper console cubby out, you'll see your aux connector molonex taped with blue tape, just hard wire a plug into that, and voila, you have a $1 aux jack.

Please use search, it is your friend.

that thread message links to two other threads that show you how.
