For anyone who has a factory stereo and has a pre-2007 model, there is a way to hookup your phone/iPod. iSimple makes an adapter kit which plugs into the back of your factory unit. It isn't cheap, I happened to get mine on amazon when it was on sale for $80.00, but it is worth it. Steering controls work with it and everything. I was able to place the wires were I liked so that they can be tucked in and out of sight when not being used. The only downside: the kit comes with an iPhone 4 connector, so if you plan to use an iPhone 5, 5s you will have to buy the lighting adapter.
