Default Direct connection to RB1 (Chrysler Nav Radio)?

I have a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT with the RB1 navigation radio and remote 6 disc CD/DVD shuttle. I currently have my S50 hooked up using a FM direct adapter, which is something that plugs in between the antenna and head unit. The sound quality SUCKS!!! Are there options for a direct hook up into the head unit?

I tried contacting PIE (Precision Interface Electronics), but they don't offer customer service and I couldn't find sufficient info on their website that would tell me if they made something that would work.

There's a couple options. You can either:

1) Get the official Chrysler Sirius Reciever which will feed directly to your radio and show the names on the RB1
2) Get the official iPod Integration Kit which will provide an iPod connector and AUX-In.
