    You actually can! It involves getting the soldering iron out lol I have the circuit diagram I designed somewhere which when a jack is plugged in, it automatically switches to iPOD/Mp3, then when you unplugg it, its back to CD changer! Works great :D

    i tried a Denison which allowed you to use the HU to control, thing is though you cant see what your selecting and then have to use the ipod controls which arent user friendly when driving.

    I settled on a parrot MKi9200 which was a bluetooth module too, you need a connect2 aux converter (£25) to make the rear speakers work with the Parrot...best £200 i ever spent on my car when i had it - you can now pick the parrot up for circa £150 - and you get a nice little tft screen which displays whatever is on your ipod screen - steering wheel remote controlled - ipod lived in the glovebox permanently
