i have an 05 STS with the stock radio and the bose speaker option. im trying to find a way to hook up my ipod touch up to the radio. i think that i can go through the pre existing xm port but i cant find a system that will work for my car. if anyone has done this and can help out i'll take any help i can get. thanks!

I'm assuming the non nav version does not have the av inputs inside the middle console?

Just buy a cable that goes from the headphone jack in your iPod to the red and white av cables and plug it in...then press AUX and click video in/out (i think) on the screen and you should be good to go!!

If i'm not mistaken what he means by module is a cable that goes to the back of the radio (recommended to be done by stereo car installation pros). That black cable will connect to your ipod as if you were connecting it to your computer and you will be able to play/pause skip/next etc songs via the radio instead of the AUX (ghetto) way that you have to do everything on the ipod instead.
