nope. every aftermarket unit needs an adapter. 100% of the adapters are simply voltage converters that translate one button voltage into another command voltage so that one system understands the other.

eBay is your friend for converters. PAC makes a device called the SWI-PS that'll do what you want. Axxess also makes a universal box that does the same thing. any car to Sony. It'll be clear what is compatible with what in the listings.

That's a pretty cool radio. HD built in, changer compatible, 6 outputs, iPod ready, and updated looks (a.k.a. not your typical sony attrocious looks ala mex-bt5000 style). Rather nice, really. And cheap as hell.
