iPod adapter for stock nav system in 05 limited WK

Is there any way I can get a iPod adapter to hook into my stock sound system to play music through my iPhone/iPod? I know in my mercedes I could play the music through my bluetooth system, and I know my car has the blue tooth phone option, however I assume that the technology wasn't available then. Any ideas?

justforjeeps.com has an ipod adapter that you can install but I think you have to have an REC or an RER head unit. I'm not sure though.

a lockpick will only work on a newer rec. i think your only option for the base radio is an fm transmitter.

Ahh I was afraid of that. I think I might just replace the stock nav system with a new alpine touch screen. I HATE the stock nav.

Can someone tell me a little more about the mygig system? I see that a lot of members on here use it.

Re: iPod adapter for stock nav system in 05 limited WK

What about that REC unit that I have seen for sale in the CL here? I think it was like $300, a great deal. Or would his stock wire harness not hook up to it?

Re: iPod adapter for stock nav system in 05 limited WK

the REC is not a great navigation unit. for the $300 price it is alright, but you will HATE not having a touch screen after using it a few times. only really pro for it is that you can get map updates for like $10 or free if you have the proper burner. i had one and switched to a mygig and it is night and day.
