    I have a 2006 Prius w/ Nav & the JBL sound system with 6-disc CD changer. I have that AUX jack in the armrest. Do I need to just buy a special plug/adapter and it will work? I tried looking at some post on the subject but unfortunately I got lost :( . I was just hoping that there was an easy plug and play installation.
    Thanks!

    All you need is a standard aux cable -- radio shack will have one. Just make sure the plug ends are the same size as your ipod headphone plug end and you'll be fine. Then just plug the ipod into the aux jack in the armrest.

    If you want to invest a couple more bucks you should buy the device from Sendstation that plugs into the bottom of your ipod instead of the headphone output. It will improve the sound 100%

    IMO

    Yeah, but that retractable one sure packs away nice. A lot less clutter.
