Comes with both an iPod 30 pin connector and a 3.5mm stereo input jack, BTW.
If you are using an after market unit to add the device to the radio, that's fine.
If you simply spliced a jack onto the speaker wires, to play through the speakers, the ipod or other player would also run back into the radio. Not good.
You can get other factory radios, like the one I listed fairly cheap, 25 -50 bucks. it has a built in jack for your mp3 player.
