    Ok, so Bluetooth music streaming isn't possible, that protocol didn't exist when the NAV was built...Now, since it sounds like you added your NAV you probably don't have the aux input in the center console either (that was the next option) you'll need to look into aftermarket aux input modules, pac audio probably makes one I'm sure.

    The easiest way is to use the aux input in the center console. Buy a 3.5mm to RCA cable, plug the 3.5 into the phones headphone jack, plug red/white RCA's into the aux inputs, press the aux button on the console, press the video soft button on the screen...enjoy!

    ^^^ Curt's got the quick & inexpensive solution. There are more, depending on how fancy you want to get. See post 4 for another option. uPAC offers many other options as well.

    Re: Playing music through bluetooth

    ^^ which is basically the same as the ISGM-574 but comes with 2 universal cables rather than 1 universal and 1 30-pin dock for iPod.

    I've run the 574 and the nu-STS (lockpick) and yeah there are a lot of wires but its doable.

    What would be helpful is a harness to extend all 4? of the radio connectors cables into the dead space to the right of the NAV so they can be more easily installed.
