I have the Sony CDX-GT35U, it's iPod/Aux/USB compatible and can have steering wheel stalk controls if you want them (I did, too). Remember you do need a lot of adapters for this and in the end cost me about 100 to do, fairly simple though

two adaptor cables for less than 40 will normally do it, if your headunit is already ipod capable.

pcc99-x50 and pc99-son...

i had a sony mex-bt2600 and the controls worked with that, with those cables.

johnS- did you have to buy an connect2 ipod adaptor for your headunit? that would explain the cost.

nope didnt have to get a connect 2 iPod adapter for it. Theres a USB connection on the headunit and you plug it into that

sorry for the late reply qwerty1982, ive been kinda busy with work and the such.

cables your require are:

pc99-x07
pc99-son

you can either pick them up at your local halfords for about £30-40 or even cheaper here:

thanks and glad you got it all sorted lol im not sure but if you get a memory issue (where you loose the radio stations etc when ignition is off) on the harness is a red and yellow wire with bullet connectors half way. disconnect these and swap them so:

red to yellow
yellow to red

this will then sort you memory problem.
