Default Dying to know: any AUX/iPod interface?

Sorry to plant this unhybridish question here, but can anyone confirm for me that the GSh has no AUX or iPod input? I've been lurking around here (and elsewhere) as I decide too make the leap to getting the GSh (havent visited the dealer yet). It would seem there is no such audio capability in this $60K car (which is totally insane if true -- it has a cassette player and no AUX??)

I'm assuming since I can't find specific mention of it at Lexus.com, there isn't one.

Thanks.

Even now, several months after learning that the GS has no iPod input, I am still shaking my head in disbelief. Alas, no real-time traffic NAV yet, either.

There are aftermarket solutions to the iPod issue. But who wants to screw around with their new $60K car? It's a dark day in Lexus' history.

I fear I've just lost my proverbial erection over this car now. I went to the Chicago AutoShow yesterday and checked out the other Lexus sedans: the LS, IS , and ES all have an AUX input. I threw out my cassette tapes long ago, so that's sort of useless.

I'm guessing that the GS must be due for a dash overhaul. Maybe for '08? Think I'll visit a dealer today to take a drive and ask some questions...

Lots of good new stuff coming from Lexus soon. IS-F, IS-coupe, IS-hardtop convertible, new SC redesign, LS600h, LF-A... (head spinning). Which to drive first?

This sort of thing occured on the Prius. The '05 doesn't, apparently have the AUX, but the '06 does.

You know, of course, you can use the tape-like device which will connect your iPod very well. I used it for a couple of years until I got my Prius.
