Hereís the audio cable coming out near the cup holder.
To listen to your iPod select either of the XM bands on your radio. In my car the Ipod does not get as loud as the FM radio does, however, I had the same issue with XM before I did this (I used to subscribe to XM). In fact, when I scroll between AM, FM, XM(iPod) and CD, the audio level changes with each band.
