Default IPod hook up

I'm being a little lazy right now, as I don't wanna go out to the truck in the cold and pull out the owner's manual

But how/where do u plug in an IPod to play music through the AUX channel?? Do I need a special cable?

thanks

Alright, so assume this if for a QX newer than 2005?

I'm a windows guy, but a usb would be just fine...when I get back to my car will check it out, but didn't recall seeing it. Only the AUX in which didn't work through the audio inputs.

the usb port is only on the 2011 and up.

for your model/trim, you can get an ipod adapter. search "armada ipod adapter" on google.

marctronixx, thanks for the input, but I'm a Windows household...you're telling me iPod and to use Google to research...man:-)

Gumbey, 2005 doesn't have blue tooth so I'd have to go with post factory head unit which I don't want to do...but thanks for the input for sure.

Thanks all for the input.

To close on this, in the 2005 there is no adapter/etc. in the glove box. However, in order to hook up an external device, get a Aux to RCA adapter (bought mine at Car Toys) and you plus Aux out to phone and RCA in to the DVD player in the center console. Once you select DVD from steering column, you need to push mode on the DVD player to have it 'pass through'. Then you're golden.

The only thing that stinks, is that the quality is not that good. I have the same issue in my 2011 Acadia Denali. You have to crank the phone volume just to get decent sound out...and still turn up the stereo quite a ways....
