There also is a specific Ipod 8 pin connection wire in the rear of the AWM970 unit that you need to buy a wire from Jensen for if your unit is compatitble.
Check your model before buying it though as it only supports older Ipod's mostly. Prior to 2008 mostly. Other problem is having to remove the unit to access it unless you can another way.
If you use the USB connection try to control the unit through the TV/monitor.
Check the manual for more specifics on the interfacing. You can watch videos through some connections should you have them on your Ipod.
