07 Commander Ipod Hookup

If this has already been addressed, sorry for the repetition.

I went to the dealer to install the ipod integration harness (not uconnect or whatever that $800 part is) and apparently mopar quit making this part and they can't locate one in any dealership in the country.

Does anyone know of an alternative part that will allow me to play my ipod (not just FM transmission) as well as charge while it's hooked up?

Note: Mopar still makes this harness for 08 and newer commanders, just not 07 back.

Part Number: 82209617AF
Will retrofit back to AD and AE

thanks!

Get the LockPick or similar adapter that will direct connect the iPod to the radio's AUX port. Crutchfield has a good selection of them, and they'll keep your satellite radio functioning properly if equipped.

I think the LockPick only works with 08-onward commanders. I don't think my commander has the mygig radio - though I'm not really sure. the Lockpick website says 08-

You have the REC NAV head unit. You can buy an AUX or iPod/AUX adapter as I suggested above. You only need the LockPick for adding a backup camera and overriding the NAV restrictions.

If you're only interested in iPod integration, you might consider getting a Parrot which would probably be cheaper and will give you bluetooth for your phone.

as always, thanks for the help. I've been wanting a lockpick but didn't think it was compatible.

Check out http://www.installer.com/cars/by_car.php?carid=6056 . You can get what you want done for a lot less money than the lockpick will cost. I added an aux input in my 07' REC. You will have to loose the Sirius but you said you weren't using it anyways.
