I recently bought a new Ipod adaptor that plays the ipod throughout the car when the audio mode "AUX" is selected. I See the AUX button is on the same button as the CD option but I cant figure out how to switch it to Auxilary mode.. somebody please help? :(
HELLO, ON THE IPOD BOX ARE SEVERAL NUMBER CODES. THEY HAVE TO BE SET TO THE RIGHT NUMBERS ON OR OFF BEFORE THE FACTORY RADIO WILL READ THE BOX. ONCE THE CORRECT NUMBERS ARE SET FOR YOUR VEHICLE THE AUX BUTTON WILL WORK JUST FINE. IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE BOOK WITH THE CODES IN IT. JUST COUNT THE WIRES ON THE ADAPTOR AND THE LOCATION OF THE PINS THEY CONNECT TO. THEN PUSH ONLY THOSE PINS UP IN THE ON POSTION. GOOD LUCK!

Connect a 3.5 mm (1/8 in) cable
from the auxiliary device to the
auxiliary input jack. When a
device is connected, the system
automatically begins playing audio
from the device over the vehicle spekers.
If there is no auxiliary port on the front of the stereo, then you will have to try and find an iPod interface cable that you can wire into the factory stereo. You can use the FM modulator type of iPod adapters, but the sound isn't as good as when it is hard wired. You can look for the iPod interface kits online at a lot of car audio stores.

Hope this helps. Good luck!
You can get a Peripheral PXDX and connect it to you AUX port on the back of you radio. The interface can be tucked behind the dash with the docking cable being the only part hanging out-to connect your ipod to. You can change songs from your radio control head-or steering wheel controls-if your vehicle has them. The docking station charges your Ipod while it's connected. Peripheral has a website you can read about the interfaces. They are available on ebay for under $100. I have the interface in two of my vehicles. The only problem is, you can't see which track is playing on your radio, but you are able to skip through tracks either by Ipod control or radio head.
Even though your current radio has an AUX button the radio is not programmed to utilize it.
There is no 'easy' way to add the '07 Job 2 and later year model's factory Aux input. You will need to buy an aftermarket solution. Something like this http://pac-audio.com/productDetails.aspx?ProductId=821&CategoryID=24
There are 2 possibilities here:
Most Odysseys I've seen, have a small compartment on the left side of the third row that opens up to show a set of inputs (Audio and Video) as well as 3 headphone jacks with volume control.
WHat I did for mine was I purchased an extra long RCA audio cable on one side and a Stereo mini-plug on the other. I connected it back there where mentioned. Then I routed the cable under the rear door plastic plate and under the driver's seat, where it reappears under the center table.
Whenever I want to connect my iPod Touch, I just grab the plug, connect my iPod then raise the volume of the iPod all the way to the max, put the radio in XM/AUX and play away.
2) The second way to do this is a bit more complex, and will be the needed way if you do not have the A/V connectors in the back:
You will need to pull out the radio and the auxiliary connections should be in the back of the radio, or connected to the main radio plug.
I would recommend taking the van to an audio shop to do this installation.
The aux is for the cd player, there is no wire in the back for an aux. But you can buy an adapter that splices into the back which allows you to use the stereo to control your ipod. It only works because you could have a 6 cd changer stock, so it uses those controls.
