It can be easy or complex, depending upon the year of your LT and which if any intercom system you have.

On my 2005 LT I have one of the early Dice units,
it never worked very well for me I've heard the newer units are better.

For simplicity I plugged a stereo mini jack into my Ipod and into the aux input on the front of my intercom,
this way I can use the bikes audio system (helmet or bike speakers or both)
and use the handlebar volume controls and the menu of the Ipod.

For an easy IPOD integration consider the following:
1. Get an old Ipod mini or clasic ....cheap on Amazon and allows you to not worry about loss.
2. convert the disk to a 16 gig flash drive.....now you no longer have to deal with skips
3. get an Griffin IPOD RF remote....about $10 on Amazon. (do not get an IR remote)
4. Velcro the remote to a convenient location
5. Plug IPOD into the AUX for your Com system

What you will have is an inexpensive IPOD solution that is reliable and functional all for a lot less than a DICE and a new IPOD/ITOUCH. 16 Gigs give you lots of music.

+1- I messed with a isimple and have a converter attached to the 6 disk harness. the harness converts to two rca's then to a 3.5MM jack. (to allow me to leave it in the trunk) then I have a RF remote to control the ipod that I purchased on ebay....
I have the isimple up for sale (check the classified section) it works with the newer systems) but not the older!
