I am wanting to do the same thing. I as well dont have the input in my tray but haev the AUX button. From what I have read on other threads I can use the Peripheral system. I bought one a while ago but cant find it.
From what I could tell when i bought it, it also charges the unit as well. Is this true??

yes, it charges your ipod, and when getting the peripheral system, you just call up crutchfield, and tell them what you want, then they will tell you which vehicle specific cord that you need that will run from their unit to your head unit.

you need to make sure your head unit says "MP3" on the front of it, otherwise it wont work.

I purchased the PIE connector for my Sirius radio. Works great with the Aux button and was easy to install. The plug is the same size for the Ipod so it plays that also.

I believe I have heard different. Even if I dont have the 6 disc MP3 I can still plug "A" system up to the changer port. Maybe not the peripheral but I do know some will work.

Does anyone know of a system that will plug into the changer port on the factory system and also charge the ipod using the ipod connector not headphone jack and seperate lighter plug charger??
