ONE MY PROBLEMS IS IT CAME WITH AN IPOD INTERGRADED KIT FROM THE FACTORY AND I CANT FIND AN ADAPTER TO MAKE IT AUX SINCE I HAVE A ZUNE HD, DONT WANNA SPEND MONEY ON ANOTHER KIT, I THINK THE BEST SOLUTON IS GET DIFFERENT HEAD UNIT THAT PROVIDES ALL THE GOODS.

We can hear you.

If you are only after an AUX plug instead of the iPod interface, the simplest approach would be to connect the AUX wire that comes standard for cars without the iPod interface. It connects to the same audio port at the head unit as the iPod interface does. I'm not sure if you car already has the AUX connector with the cable disconnected, not a big deal to retrofit if necessary.

Another option would be to install the UMI or Nav + 4 kit which also includes a standard AUX plug. It is just a bit expensive when it has full navigation capabilities and a set of audio interface options.

I would not consider an after market radio in the case of a GLK.

THANKS DEISEL, JUST FUSTRATING YOU WOULD THINK MB WOULD COME WITH STANDARD AUX, YEAH MY GLK ONLY CAME WITH THE IPOD INTERFACE AND NO AUX, I AM NEW TO THE WHOLE ADDING THINGS TO THE CAR, DO YOU KNOW WHERE I CAN GET PICS OF THE BACK OF THE RADIO, OR IS THERE WIRE I CAN BUY THAT HAS BOTH PORTS INSTEAD OF ONE, TO HOOK UP FROM THE EXCISTING IPOD PORT BEHIND THE UNIT. THATS COMPATIBLE

Pretty sure you do still have the AUX port. I will double check in the morning, but it should be on the far side of your glove box. (will update in the AM, when i am 100%)

Please try the AUX port too, do not just check if you can see it. I'm afraid the port could be there but the wire has been swapped to the one going to the iPod interface. At best the two would be parallel connected.
