iPod Steering Wheel Controls on RHR?

Quick question for you all. On my 2009 Dodge Ram, I have the RER and had to purchase an iPod cable to tuck my iPod neatly away in the glovebox and control everything from the steering wheel controls. I'm picking up my Jeep this Saturday and still can't figure out if I'll be able to control my iPhone/iPod with the steering wheel controls and have the iphone/ipod hidden in the center console or the glove box. There doesn't seem to be any cable to purchase like I did with my RER. Can someone please explain? Thanks in advance!

Re: iPod Steering Wheel Controls on RHR?

The RHR internally contains the iPOD control interface so there is no need for anything extra. There is a USB outlet in the center console where you use your standard iPod cable to plug your iPOD in and you should have the same or better function as the 09... but there are quirks and YMMV.
