Not that I am aware of.

AFAIK the ipod hookups get hardwired into the XM plug.

Radio is easy to pull out, unscrew all screws and tug gently on it, it will come out. If need be pry it gently with a flat head screw driver wrapped in a shop towel. Careful not to let it scratch up your a/c controls when it comes out.

There is no AUX plugin 3.5 mm jack for an iPod on the bose radio.

I installed this years ago to my H/U and have my XM Commander Radio plugged into it, couldn't be happier-

GM12-AUXv2

I got it because I hated the FM modulated XM radio receiver I had and using this utilizes the AUX function on our Bose factory systems, making the signal digital and CD Quality (well, if the input is CD quality).

It's plug and play, just get an iPod RCA adapter like this-

Amazon.com: IpodŽ To Rca Cable: Electronics

...and run it through your dash to your center console or something where ever you want your ipod to plug into. If you do it right you could hide your iPod in the center console, make it so it sits in a cup holder, or in the glove box. Do not use a 3.5MM to RCA adapter even though they are cheaper, the sound quality will suffer.

go to best buy they sell one that ties right into the factory wiring harness. you unplug your harness plug the ipod cable harnes in and hook back up your factory harness. you can also run hd radio with this setup.. i love mine!!! its kinda pricey though but i think its def worth it

I had the same problem getting my radio out, the wiring harness had gotten caught and would only pull out about a couple inches. Take your ac controls out so you can get your hand up underneath behind the back of the radio when you pull it out a little bit and pinch the clips on the back and unplug the wiring harness. And no, there is no aux hook up from the factory, however I am using the iSimple Gateway and it is working well for me.

That's probably the easier solution to mine, but same premise.

I called crutchfield, they have the ipod interface kit that you would need, just is a piggyback harness off of the H/U harness. A little pricey tho.... but worth it, can operate the main ipod controls through the H/U and the sound is crystal clear, probly same thing as tres8887 is talking about

I purchased the USA-Spec version that was recommend by various people in this forum - do a search on it. Anyway I think it is model #PA11-GM. It goes into one of your XM outputs, so you can still use one XM if you have it. It uses your stering wheel controls and everything. Took me a few hours to install, nothing to to crazy & I love it. Oh ya it charges your ipod too.

Being able to use the wheel controls is exactly what I wanted to know, guess I'm using some birthday money on that. Nice avatar, I'v got a 71 I'm gonna restore one day.
