Smile New info on Ipod hookup

I don't know if anyone has figured this out yet or not. I know I searched on here forever and never saw anything about it..but if you already have a sirius radio in your car you can run your ipod through the connection on the back and dont need anything else but the dock connector to 3.5mm cable for the ipod. You just plug it into the audio out port on the back of the sirius dock. now the radio will still be playing the sirius channel but you just need to turn the volume down on the satellite radio itself and you will hear nothing but the ipod. No interference at all!!.. Now for those who want hidden cords oh well but this is a cheap ( free) way of playing your ipod.. Hope it helps someone

It's on the left hand side with the windshield mount. fits perfect in the area between the pillar and the hump for the cluster. .. no its not screwed into the ****ing dash with a circuit city sticker!. Anyways a cheap way to listen to your ipod if you already have sirius.. prob same way with xm too.
