Default Connecting iPod?

I have an '06 Civic EX with the iPod accessory connector. All that's there is the jack. Do I have to purchase a cord or something? If so, where and how much is it?
Thanks!

I'm assuming your Honda stealership has them? But if someone knows the actual cord you need (which I don't, sorry), they can supply you with the name and you can probably pick it up at a local Radio Shack, Best Buy, or the like.

Good luck!

I'm assuming that you're refering to the aux port on the front of your stereo. I'd suggest picking up a good aux cable at radio shack. Best Buy's cables are expensive. I prefer direct connect support if you have an iPod but the aux jack works fine. Its a little easier to navigate through your music if you're going through aux too.

$6 cable from Wal-Mart has worked for me (but will probably end up like the one from Fry's that melted).

I bought a Monster iCarCharger to keep my iPod charged and connected to my Civic's stereo. The iCarCharger features a 3.5mm output from the digital side (Apple's proprietary connector), which is supposed to be a higher quality connection than the analog output on the top. I think I bought a short 3.5mm cable separately (the iCarCharger either didn't come with one or it was too long).

Prices start at $5.98 online: http://electronics.pricegrabber.com/...ch=iCarCharger
