If you have an 2010 EX-L, get the USB Interface from CHH. It is flawless. Easily one of my favorite mods.

Dont flame because I have no idea about any of this but there is an "aux" connection in the center console. Can I just plug the connection from a Sony walkman MP3 player in there and use it through the radio?

So what is the whole purpose of the USB interface? ipods use a different connection?
You can use an iPod with the aux connection but you getter better sound quality with an interface. Plus most of them allow for song/artist info to be displayed on the stereo's screen and give you the ability to control the iPod with the steering wheel controls.

All that plus it will charge an iPod and I think you can use USB flash drives. If you use the AUX in you have to set two volume controls: one on the radio, and one on the device. You get better sound through the USB connection because it is bypassing the device's amp. With an AUX input you are taking a very low amplified power signal (headphones don't need a lot of power) and amplifying it again with the radio.
