Ipod?

I have jsut purchased my first Boxster! Very happy! It is a 2005. Is there a kit of best practice to use/integrate an IPOD?

Thanks in advance for any and all help!

if you want to stay with factory head unit, the stock CR and CDR 220 units have an input in the back for a cd changer that can be used for an mp3 player input.

if you want to go aftermarket head unit, you can buy one of many that offer full compatibility. i just put in a kenwood from crutchfield that does great.

Unfortunately 05 Boxsters have a later head unit than the CR-220 and CDR-220 and require a more complex ($$$) solution.

BumperPlugs carries the Dension iPod adapters that many seem to praise but I'm sure there are other solutions as well.
