Looks like he is taking advantage of the aux port. Trouble is, how does he activate the input, and unload the input to prevent interference for the radio's own audio?

That's what I was curious about, specifically.

Owner of 'Eeyore', a 2004 Prius. Only took 2 days from start of search to delivery.

8 years of ownership, 115,000 miles, about 40 MPG average at present.

Unless it is only a 2006 vehicle they do this to. It may be all the radios in that MY have the connection for the 1/8" plug, but some packages may not have the wiring. Earlier models didn't have this extra connecton.

The aux port I originally referred to was a port to add additional intelligent accessories, such as SAT, Ipod with control, etc.

I now have a Vais SoundLinQ SLI and it works perfectly.

It depends how much you want to listen to your iPod. Personally, I drive a lot so it is worth it to me.
