I have an 06 STS V and purchased a PACuPAC STS iPod interface.designed for
an 07 STS V.
It would seem that the two years in question (06-07) are not the same
question is how are they difference and are the 07 Nav HU interchangable
with an 06 <Plug & Play> I wonder if anyone has any experence with this.

How are they "not the same"?

They might be different part numbers but the system should be set up the same way.
I don't know of any changes between those model years.

I thought the BUS system was different between 06 and 07+

There is something different with SOME of thee '06s and the '07s. I was told by a local installer, after he made some phone calls to the camera manufacturer, that I could not install a rear camera system if I had a particular version of the '06 Navi. They said they would have to disassemble the dash and check the input connector on the back of the Navi before they could tell me if they could add the camera. That was if I wanted the camera to work through the Navi screen. Of course they could add another screen, but I do not want to do that. I have not let them go into the dash, because I was afraid I might have a rattle after they were done and still not be able to have the camera I wanted. Might be worth the gamble if I knew for sure that the camera would work with my model.
