Yeah you can add on one of several different Kenwood GPS units to that I'm pretty sure. The recommended one to use is the KNA-G510 and runs in the $300 range on eBay, new.

Just take the above mentioned parking brake (green) wire and the radio's ground wire and ground them both together. Same way I did it on my 7100.

As far as the CD being stuck, that's another issue. Does the radio even try to take the CD in?

Make sure the cable is plugged all the way into the iPod...I know stupid question but I am serious...on those ipods they dont always go in all the way even though it feels like it (thats what she said)

OR its because Apple ***** balls and you need to get their cable...some sort of resistor code in the cable that allows video to play.

Oh, and Kenwood makes an iPod cable that has audio and video to be able to be controlled by the deck...but not the one you linked to, I think that one will only do audio and you control it yourself.
