As to the Ipod, you can get the VAIS or Carson Toyota (a sponsor) posted a little bit ago about a Lexus and Apple approved iPod adaptor that will incorporate into your existing system and be placed in your glove box. This is the one I want. Both the R-spec unit and the iPod will have to be installed by a professional unless you are very handy (which I am not).
I have info on the VAIS unit for ipod. have poked around but didn't come up with the Carson sponsor Apple/Lexus approved adapter. can you post or send the link?

Thanks to Rolling Audio, here's what my car can do:
Navigation entry and POI in motion
Phone Dial in motion
DVD in motion
Mp3 Browsing in motion
Menu/settings in Motion
This company was fast and affordable. No $400 cable to buy.
I watched them during the whole process. They respected my vehicle with careful removal of parts, towels and mats while they were in the car and most important, NOW I CAN USE MY CAR to it's full potential!
finally found the rocker switch whose size is the closest to the panel cutout, and the material closest to our console panel (imho).
the p/n is JWL11RA1A, requires cutout size 29.5mm x 20.5mm, which is slightly wider than our panel cutout 30mm x 20mm. guess filing .25mm off the cutout on each side is a no-brainer easy task. one extra work is file 4 rounded cutout corners to fit the non-rounded switch casing, which is also a <5min job even you want to do it carefully.
note I've done dvd/phone mod a while ago. many thanks to quezacotl's nice wiring diagram!!!
