easiest with that information is probably a fm transmitter. i have my iPhone connected to my aftermarket head unit through blue-tooth. there are other radios that connect to the front or back of the radio. in my old car i found a fm transmitter that plugged into the back of the radio then ran the wire from that to the headphones port on the iPod which worked perty good on a stock radio but involved pulling the radio and running power and ground wires also. there are many ways to connect you iPod to your radio it just depends on what you have and what you want to do with it.

When you look at transmitters, there are ones than directly hook up to the radio through the antenna or wire harness, or ones that just emit an FM frequency.

no matter how much help we give you you are going to have to do some thinking for yourself. Start with your manual or google your model # (found on the fsceplate) and see what you may find. If nothing else as has already been said an fm transmitter will do the job.
