iPod connect cable

Hi everyone.
I'm brand new here and I've spent too many hours searching Google for an answer to this question.
How can I connect an ipod to my 2011 Grand Cherokee without using an audio jack in the front of the unit? I'm in Australia and the local dealers are of no use. There's no USB in the centre console but there is a funky port in the storage bin below the stereo head unit in the bottom centre of the dash. Is this how I connect? What's it called? And what is the cable I need to get up and running? Thanks in advance!!

Re: iPod connect cable

Thanks for your reply. It has REP written in the bottom right corner. I'm guessing that might be the model?

Re: iPod connect cable

Ok so that's the Australian version of the 730N. I know the 2011 version of the 730N uses a special cable to connect an ipod. This is likely the special connector you see in the little storage bin.

The Jeep should already have the cable/connector in the little storage bin. You just plug your ipod into it.
