Default iPod on stock Optra Blaupunkt?

Just wondering if the the stock Blaupunkt system on the optra can support the iPod Video through a cable of some sort.
Everyone talks about high end blau's having ipod connectivity kits etc. What about the stock ones which come with the car.

Let me in on your thoughts.

I am not sure if the Blaupunkt on the Optra is Ipod-ready. However, what you can do is get the head-unit conversion done such that I connect the Ipod to a headphone pin(the only visible result of conversion) that comes out of the head-unit and then change the Radio mode to AM. The conversion cost me about Rs.1200 and the SQ is better than via and I-trip. I got it done from Auto Fusion (Anwar), Bangalore.

the music quality from an ipod will always be good. the weekest link are ur speakers. if u have a good setup, then it shd sound pretty good.

prakash, wish if i cud have show you practically the difference between Cr zen and iPod. So many of my friends here at US had returned the Creative Zen and have seen no one (though I'm sure there must be some) complaining against iPod leaving the scratch problem for the black one. I think Lemon's analysis is correct.
