      The OEM one does the install the OEM way. It is the only interface that requires so much for the install.

      So, what is the set-up that will work for the '07 Passat variant, w/o the CD changer (stock radio)? I have tried two of the USA units and neither one of them worked correctly. They both worked either as iPod only or stock radio, but the sound on some of the cuts was very poor. The sound is fine through the earbuds or on the home stereo.
      That that is, is. That that is not, is not.

      Any info on the Neo Ion interface for VW's? Seems like a nice product, but haven't been able to get it to work.

      That part is garbage. I sell it as pac and dont reccomend it to anyone. Look at the Dice units they work well.

      I just bought a new '06 Rabbit and have a single in-dash CD player. Would the Blitzsafe VW/M-Link1V.5 be a good choice?

      And also, and I am a NOVICE, how difficult would it be to self-install? Are installation guides provided?

      Also, this particular unit will allow me to retain full control of the ipod, correct? I won't have to use the actual radio controls?

      Any help is much appreciated.

      the Blitzsafe VW/M-Link1V.5 is a great product for that car, it will import direct audio to your headunit, charge the ipod, and pause it when you turn the car off, and all the ipod controls and screen are still functional

      another great option would be the PIE VW02PCPOD2, this unit still gives you the freedom to make comands through the ipod, and use the screen, but this interface will also automaticaly starts the ipod playing when you select your aux changer from the radio, turns the ipod off when you turn the car off, and will control the track up and down from the radio controls/ steering wheel controls if you have them
      like the blitzsafe it also provides direct audio input and charging


      if you have factory satelite radio and wish to keep it be sure to order the sat pass thru (nessisary with any interface)

      john does installing one of these aftermarket adapters void my warrenty?

    17. 08-03-2006 06:35 PM #17
      there should be no reason that your warrenty should be voided after the install of one of these interfaces

      infact VW sells their own version of these interfaces that connects to the car in the same exact way.

      I have never heard of any incident where an ipod interface has damaged a factory radio, if anything is not working properly with the interface the radio will disallow acess to it
      (similar to if you had a malfunctioning cd changer)

      remeber, all these VW specific interfaces are true plug and play, with no mods needed to the car wiring harness
      (also a perfect solution for leased vehicles)

      Hi all,

      I have a VW MFD navigation DD head unit. I would love to hookk up my iPod either vias the aux input or the CD changer harness. Do any of these iPod adaptors show ID3 information on the MFD display?

      thanks

      no VW headunit (past or present) is capable of providing CD text through the CD changer port

      if you'd like to keep your cd changer you can use this:

      http://enfigcarstereo.com/shop....html


      or if you choose not to keep your external CD changer (if you have one) a interface that will control the ipod from the radio like the dice unit is a great solution

      What's the best application for my 05 GTI with monsoon single disc CD player and no CD changer?

    21. 08-26-2006 07:30 PM #21
      to anyone with a double din installing the pie pcpod2 (the glove box style) use the same install instructions as the link, i ran a ground to the dash mount where you remove the cover panel, and if you have a cupholder, you can wiggle the unit down behind the climate controls for a clean install.. very easy over all, took me about a half hour..

      the pie vw02pcpod2 is the most cost effective unit with convienent features, it will start and stop you ipod just like an oem CD changer would, it will allow you to select tracks for the radio/ steering wheel controls, it will also charge you ipod and keep the screen and click wheel controls active


    23. 08-30-2006 01:03 AM #23
      I have a 2001 Jetta with the non-Monsoon radio and the Euro 6-disc in-dash CD changer kit installed. The radio and CD player look like the pics in this thread:

      http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=675816

      I've been looking for an iPod solution that ideally:

      * Lets me keep that CD changer
      * Lets me keep my steering wheel controls for the radio/CD

      If someone can recommend a solution that does this, I would be very grateful.

      And if the solution also supported the following, I'd be ecstatic!

      * Lets me control the iPod with my steering wheel controls too!
      * Has iPod convenience features, such as auto start/stop
      * Provides an additional aux input
      * Allows control of the iPod with the click wheel as well

      I currently have a sony cdx m620 aftermarket radio and I'm almost positive it does not have any AUX INPUTs and I do not have a CD changer installed. I want to hook up my Ipod to my radio. Do you carry anything devices that can hook up the ipod and charge it at the same time? Thanks!.

      I'm researching for a friend with a beetle.

      I'm wondering where's her connection to the CD changer (probably the trunk).

      Can I also have a list of your product that can plug into that port so that i don't have to remove her headunit?

      i have the vw oem setup in my car, and have one or two little niggles, the first is that when i jump tracks using the standard buttons it always jumps 2 tracks at a time. The current playlist also plays a half second of the current track twice, and then changes playlist.
      Other than that i love the device, the sound quality is great!

      Is there any way of doing a firmware update to the ipod adapter, and would that fix the niggles?

      Regards,
      Matt

      I'm interested in getting an iPod interface for my wife's 2007 Eos with the premium radio/ 6 disc-in-dash changer. Will any of the adapters work with it? TIA

      This thread is exactly what i was hoping to find!

      I have a 2006 B6 Passat, with Navi/Satellite/Dynaudio and the 6cd changer in the glove box..

      IDEALLY, I'd like to integrate my ipod with the following conditions (in order of priority):

      1) Have a direct digital connection from my ipod to the stereo
      2) Maintain full control of the ipod itself
      3) Not have to disconnect the 6cd changer
      4) Have control of the ipod thru the car stereo
      5) Not have to disconnect the satellite radio

      Is it possible to install the ipod with all of the above 5 things? And what equipment would i need?

      If not, what's the next best alternative (while giving consideration to the order of priority of the above conditions)?

      Thank you SO MUCH for any info you might have!!
