How to connect both iphone and sirius to stock HU

Hi there I am about to install some interior upgrades to my ranger and I am looking for the best option to allow me to have both my siriuis and iphone connected to the stock Head unit.

I found these two devices, anyone have any experience with them?

AUX3 - SoundGate.com

FDPD4 - SoundGate.com

Am I just wasting money here and better off getting an aftermarket HU that will integrate seamlessly?

You might want to look into this deck from JVC.

It's an unbelievable $500 off right now.

JVC KD-S100 CD receiver at Crutchfield.com

Hell, I'm even thinking of buying one, just because of the price.

I'm not sure about the Sirius connectivity with this HU though. That's why I'm keeping my stock HU for now too.

That JVC has USB and SD Memory Card inputs. Pretty sweet deal IMO.

I said **** on it and ran 2 power lines and an aux cable to my pillar, then put two mounts up there and called it good. The only thing I hve to do is switch the Jack depending what I want to do...plus having the iphone up high right where you field of vision is, makes using the Nav and mapping features really convenient.

I also added MTX TD6802 speakers all around, made a huge difference I can completely max the the volume with full bass and treble and as long as the windows are rolled up there is no distortion or rattles
