    it depends on what you want to spend...the expensive way and actually the most effecient way is to get the actual computer for you headunit...or you can hook it up the auxiliry cable by getting for example.....alpine had the Ai-Net cable so you get that, then a RCA cable that ends in a mini stero plug, plug the RCAs into the Ai net cable and then plug the wire into the headphone jack...you control the songs on the ipod and the volume on the headunit...the RCA cable is like 5 bucks...u can get the car charger to...reccomended cause ipod has power save and while it is charging it sounds alot better

    Plug that into your Alpine, then get a phono to RCA interconnect ($2-3 bucks at Radio Shack) and you're good to go.

    iPod heaphone jack = stereo, common ground; keep that in mind if you buy radioshack plugs, you may get instrument plugs instead.

    Monster makes an iPod out -> RCA, it's the best connection for your iPod if you have an input on your HU.

    iPod has a 60m amp inside.
