Just FYI—an iPod can store music in various formats, including MP3, WAV, and ALAC. The directory structure is a bigger problem than the format, if the music is in MP3 format. In iTunes, you can choose what format the music is stored on the iPod.

Good luck!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Does the stereo have a place to plug in earphones? If it has a USB plug, then chances are it does have a headphone plug. If so, just buy a cable with both ends that are the same as your headphones plug (the white cable in the picture). Then turn up both devices to MAX and ROCK OUT!!

Its that easy!

I have a 1+ hour commute to work on public transportation and my iPod is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I use it with an FM adaptor in the car and on the boat, it also interfaces through the audio panel in our airplane, the home stero and the stereo on the Harley. I use it everywhere.

While you loose some fidelity through the FM modulator, it does offer some advantages on the boat. By plugging the unit into the 12v outlet in the cockpit, it keeps the ipod handy to the helm. That lets me select the tunes I want to hear or mute the music if there is important VHF traffic. I'd thought about replacing the stereo to get a direct interface, but the FM modulator gives me cockpit remote control with no extra expense or install issues.

Eureka!
Hot Damn the white one worked, it was only 10 bucks and plugged into the AUX on the stereo and the headphone port on the iPod. I can control all music from the iPod and it sounds great. Thanks for the tip!
