Did a search and did'nt find what I was looking for. Can you plug an Ipod in the Audio In connections in the console?

I hear "hooked on Phonics" works..

Can't you tie in your Ipod through the radio station?

Depending on the problem, the answer is either

a) more fiber or

b) adult diapers.

OK Guys, I'm laughing too, but what's the answer?

I don't know that much about the STS, but Cadillac just spent millions of dollars redesigning the 2007 SRX's interior and didn't include a iPod jack. So I think it would be safe to say that there is not one on the new in 2005 STS.

But then I don't know much about iPods or the other thing.

Good lord, could we make this any more complicated. Yes, if you have a STS-V, you can use the audio/video inputs in the console for an iPod. Here's a link to the adapter I just bought. http://www.boxwave.com/products/ipodphotoavms/ipod-photo-av-minisync-apple-ipod-5g-video-80gb_2114.htm It even allows you to play video if your iPod supports it.

All STSs (from 2005 on) equipped with Bose 5.1 and Navigation have RCA inputs in the console.

There, mystery solved.

You can plug an ipod into the AV jacks in the center console, however you cannot control the ipod through the radio, you still have to press the buttons on the ipod.

To me that's no big deal, I use it mostly for longer trips anyway. I just turn it on and let it play. There are a ton of different adapter jacks that are available for the ipod that will fit the av input, just do a search and find the best one.

Your right, and I already had an adapter in my misc. box I have. Works great.

Thanks

I also tested the Audio connection with a non-iPod (Rio MP3 player) for those of you with other brand MP3 players and it worked just fine with a Y cable as the one pictured below from Comprehensive. As stated above, you control the selections from the player...http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=4173&A=details&Q=&sku=134132&is=REG&addedTroughType=categoryNavigation

GM is now offering a device called the Personal Audio Link for $159 that allows the ipod to fit into the glovebox and all of the controls can be used from the steering wheel.
It interfaces with XM so the sound quality is better. XM does not have to be activated for it to work.
GM is slowly phasing it in on the '07 car line.
I am trying to find if the SRX has been added yet.
