I asked this a while ago too, I got this: The Apple Remote uses a RF signal, and only controls the RF receivers used in Macs, and the Universal Dock. iPods, and iPhone models do not have the receiver built into the device. therefor, no. If your truck is equipped with an iPod connector, the same one you use to sync and charge it, your truck's stereo unit should have it's own remote. If it uses the 3.5 mm headphone jack to play songs. there is no way to remotely control the iPod, alone. There are 3rd party adapters that can do the job though. EX: The TuneFlex AUX SmartClick - Car mount, charger and remote control for iPod and iPhone. I would include a link to the site, but it says "i have entered inappropriate text" but Google the name and it should take you right there.
