Default Ipod for monsoon

I have a 2003 Ssei with Monsoon. I plan on keeping the oe head unit, but want to add an I-pod. I do NOT have a cd changer factory harness in the trunk(no extra port in the back of the head either) Peripheral says I am Sol. - ddalder talked about an adapter(any updates?), but is there any way to tap into the original cassette wiring & use that for a signal? I am not tryin to do this myself, just wondering if anyone knows of a company that has another way to get an aux. source for this.
My classic with 2600 songs if feeling lonely! Thanks for any help!

I guess thats one way to get it to work - How bad is the sound quality? I am looking for a direct input, which may not be available.

You can also get a combo charger/fm transmitter. They work pretty good. You just change your FM radio to a station that is not in use in your area and set your charger/FM transmitter to the same. They run around $20 to $30.

My wife has one of those,,,,,, at least the one she has is horrible,,,, lots of interference.

At least the cassette is a direct link.

The one good thing about them,,,,,, is as you stated,,,, it charges it as well
