What model stereo?

I purchased an mp3 player for my mother for Christmas and would like to hook it up to the stereo in her Jeep Compass. I snuck in and took the stereo out to take a look at the back of it and see if there were any hook ups and it looks like there is a 12 pin ip bus plugin open on the back of it. The only problem is that in order to buy the right adapter for that I need to know something about what model stereo it is and there were no markings I could see on the thing. Does anyone know what make and model stereo is in the '07 Compass? It's just the standard package, not the Boston Acoustics version.

We have an '08 Sport w/standard audio and there is a plug in the dash for our mp3 player. This quote is from a review of the '07, "The Sport model comes standard with an AM/FM/CD player with auxiliary audio input jack." I don't think you need to do anything but plug your mp3 player into the jack. That's all we do and it sounds great!
No, there were actually a couple of options as far as the stereos were concerned. There's a single cd player with an av input on the front, which is what you have I'm assuming, and a 6 disc changer which doesn't have one. She has the six disc changer. Sorry I should have specified that. I don't know why they don't all just have that av input but this doesn't it's kind of obnoxious.
Sorry to hear that, the front panel input is a nice convenience. It really should be on all models. I think it might be on the '08's.
