I'll try to get a pic up soon!
You should be able to control the ipod with your radio controls if you have the usb ipod cable, provided you also have the 6FL option (USB/Ipod Integration).

Another option is to use the auxiliary jack, like what you did on your Volvo. However, this way you wouldn't be able to control the ipod with the radio controls (i.e. on your steering wheel). You'd have to change songs on the ipod directly.
