Default Ipod Controlling...

I know this has probably been beaten to death, but i havent found a clear answer. Im looking to hook up my ipod to the radio (I know i need to get the cables for the rear AUX) but i also want to control it through the radio and steering wheel and have the text show on the screen of what song is playing. If i have to get the VIM mod, i guess that's alright but if there is a way around it, please share. I mostly just want to stick the ipod in the glovebox and forget about it like my old car so charging it also.

No way to use the steering wheel controls with it. VIM rear aux just let you see the ipod on the screen, still have to use the ipod to switch between things etc...
