iPod to Uconnect Integration
 
hey All,
Brand new here and I'm sure this topic has been addressed many times before. I just recently purchased used a 2009 RAM Crew Laramie w/RamBox. Love it and am in process of equipping it accordingly.
Right now my objective is to get my iPod integrated with the Uconnect system so I can control from the steering wheel controls. I have the RER system (I beleive). Uconnect, NAV, Bluetooth, DVD player (front only), and SAT. I want to figure out how to enable the iPod Soft Key to appear on the main screen. I've read loads of forums of what integration cable/s to get to make this happen but really nothing definitive.
Any help and insight would be appreciated.
Right now I just connect my iPod/iPhone thru the Aux jack and control at the device. Want the ability to do it at the system controls though.

I had to purchase a new RER radio with the correct software in it to use my IPOD. Once I got the right radio, then you had to get an integration cable so it plugs in with the microphone and IPOD cable that goes in the glove box. I did however traded my old RER and got a newer one with the correct software through http://www.oemautopartsco.com/

If you have a Laramie that has the original radio don't worry its 2009 radios and up that have the apple chip, well you do need an integration cable in order to get the IPOD to show up and it only shows up when you have the IPOD attached, they are around a hundred bucks or so roughly here in Canada

Thanks Ric. I'm fairly certain it's the original unit to the truck. I believe it's the RER unit.
What I'm after is exactly what harness it requires to make this happen. From my sketchy research, there's about 4 different cables possible.
