Why? If they do they will charge youa bout 400.00 for the equipment. You can get the stuff you need for about 200 from crutchfield. Its not a standard feature from what I am being told.

Why not use the FM transmitter built for the ipod? A friend of mine had one and I saw him work it on a rental car. The sound was pretty decent. You could just jam the ipod in the little cubby and drive on down the road!

I have tried all of the FM transmitters and they all sucked for me. In my area I would get static or sometimes it wouldn't pick up a station. When it finally did work like i twas supposed to the music quality was crap. FM is not CD quality.

Those FM transmitters are picky in different cities, go to cnet.com they have a lot of reviews on all the ipod accessories

Here are pics of the instal of the aux 2 car adaptor .. be very thankful I had to pull out the head unit again since i didn't take pics when i was installing it .

I got a great value from cardomain.com with open box Aux2car for 48 bucks . the cables cost around 20 bucks .
Intalled in about 30 mins .
Here are links to get this .

unfortunately no.. scion made sure that you had to buy their version of the tuner, and couldn't get a cheaper one from pioneer. I wonder if there are adapters out now that would allow a factory to aftermarket tuner to work..
