Yours is different to what I was thinking it was, this was the one I was thinking of:

and this is the rear view

the green socket to the bottom left is where the CD changer/ipod adapter plugs in

Is that a RDS 6000? If it is, can I just simply swap mine out with one of these?

If Memory serves me right I do believe that while they are the same size physically, the connection blocks are different.

 

So unless you can either convert the wiring yourself, or get it done for you, or buy a conversion kit, then it won't be compatible

I'm not much into in-car entertainment, for me as long as it picks up radio stations and pushes the sound out of the speakers, it's good enough for me.

 

Having said that you want to play your ipod/iphone though it, so naturally one with an auxiliary socket would be advisable, there are many on the market from cheap unbranded to the more expensive Kenwood types, it all depends on your budget.

 

I have to say though that the surround converter you linked to looks like a good idea, with the bin below it, it'll give you somewhere to put the ipod/iphone

Right, that's about the same as me, I went to halforda and picked up the cables and facia adapter, the guy there suggested a kenwood, but it was about £60 out of my budget, I guess it's just time to have a look around really.
