You need the IMR-4 input box for the rear of the Poly. This will allow 2 RCA inputs and 2 Outs from the MRD-60. IF you need more config please ask..

You're gonna have to get a minijack/RCA connector which has the 1/8" 'headphone plug' on one end and splits to an RCA type plug on the other, which you can then plug into the back of your radio, if it has an RCA input. You can get this connector either at Radioshack, bestbuy,circuit city etc...

A quick trip to Radio shack and purchase the cable that has 2 RCA phono jacks on one end and the mini jack on the other. I recommend you take the I-pod into the store and tell the assistant what you want. The assistants are not the sharpest knives in the drawer. Also, take a good look at how you want the final installation to look. This will help you determine the length of cable you will require. An additional tip that might work for you. I took the clear plastic holder that Apple sells as a clam shell for I-pod face plate protection and mounted the back half to one of those adjustable "trigger type" C-clamps. The plate is connected right near the end meaning the top end can be used to clamp where I like. I have all wires hidden in the gunwhale with only 2 inches of jack and wire exposed and its all clamped in place.
