I have a Sirius radio plugged into my system via a wired FM modulator. This plugs inline in the radio lead and has a lead for the satelite radio that interrupts the FM reception whenever the satelite radio is on. This setup has no noticible noise since the FM transmission is wired and does not use an antenna to antenna signal. These adapters are available with a 3.5mm headphone connector.

Before you buy it, I'd look to see if there is one available that does not require the on-off switch. I'm not sure that it's out there, but the one that I'm using is automatic. Then again, it gets a signal from the Sirius radio when it powers up. It would have to recognize the presance of a music signal which may be why it needs the switch, but this is the right technology to get your wife's iPod working in the car without static.

On my gf's '01 LX, I recently installed a JVC-HDR1 head unit and the JVC iPod interface. I cut the top-rear corner of the compartment below the radio and fed the digital iPod wire through there. This way, she can hide the iPod and control it from the radio face.

this is still part of what I want to do....although I went Pioneer and I guess aux 2 (in the back of the HU) is supposed to control my iPod or Sirius...which ever I hook into it. (I will go the ipod route there as I rarely use my Sirius...in fact use so little I didn't even renew my contract)...although still looking into a new dvd player and such which is gonna mean a entre redo on the system as I will hook up all my other amps, EQ's and new speaks. still hunting those babies down!
