Question Vais products

Hi, Guys!
This is my first post. I have searched and read extensively on the Forums about Vais and the products they offer for a 2008 rx350. Many of the responses are very technical and I was hoping someone could give me a layman's answer. I have also called Vais and still couldn't figure out which product I needed.

Here's the deal: In my daughter's new car she has USB/AUX/IPOD connections. I cannot find any combination of Vais that has all three of these. I was looking at the VML, but it doesn't have the aux imput. I have a blackberry but may get an iphone in the future. If I get the VML, what would I need the aux imput for exactly?

Also, I called Sewell Lexus and asked how much it would be to install a VML. The quote was $725, including the unit. Based on how easy everyone (you techies ) seem to say this is to install, that seems excessive even for a dealership.

All help is appreciated and please feel free to be as elementary as possible! Thanks!

If you are in the Dallas area, ask Car Toys in Plano what they charge for the install. They did a superb job installing my Kenwood, very professional.

Thanks for the recommendation. Carver! I'll certainly give them a call once I figure out what product I want to install.

Ask for their advice, as we say in Texas, this ain't their first rodeo.

Good idea! I'll give them a call tomorrow. I assume they have experience with Lexus installs. That was the reason I called Sewell. I want someone who knows what they are doing (since obviously I don't)! Thanks again, Carver.

Wow, I'm sold - just based on the number of lives that CarToys have saved already in the Dallas area with your backup camera! Seriously, my only concern was having a good install on the Lexus. Those fears have been put at rest. I'll be calling CarToys. Thanks so much for your help!
