    Thread: Volkswagen iPod Guide

    1. 09-19-2006 04:51 PM #26
      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 [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      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!!

      I know this is labeled the "VW" Ipod guide, but I need to find the right parts for my 2004 A4 with Symphony and factory satellite. Need something to control and charge the ipod. Any suggestion? Thanks

      Does it look like this?

      I'm interested also

      Hey I have a 2001 Jetta that has the radio in it just like the one a couple posts up. However I also have the VW Cd player mounted directly above the radio. Does the CD player plug into the Changer outlet on the radio? In my case, what would be a good economical way for me to play my ipod in my car?

      I'm looking into doing just a normal mini-jack input (no iPod for me). Is this product the appropriate one? The Blitzsafe V.3A? Hooking into the trunk input for an '03 GTI with the stock Monsoon h/u.

      If so... does anyone have install pictures from running the cable from the trunk to the front seat? Suggestions as to where to tuck it, etc?

      for you, the pie VWr pcpod2 works great and allows you to keep your factory add on CD player
      you'll acess the ipod by pressing the "select" button once you're in the cd changer mode of your radio

      that will work just fine, and you won't need to remove your radio
      use these to adapt it to a 3.5mm headphone jack
      http://enfigcarstereo.com/shop....html
      note: you night want to use a rca patch cord to lengthen the audio leads becuase they have to be run from the trunk, or a behind the radio aux input might be easier
      http://enfigcarstereo.com/shop....html
      functionaly there is no difference between the trunk connection, or the behind the radio connection, just the connection ends are different

      Thanks John! Is any grounding necessary for the trunk connection? I've seen a few posts mentioning some sort of buzzing problems when plugged into the trunk input.

      hi! eor has the following oem stereo:

      no, grounding isn't nesssiary, however the longer audio lines required to bring the interface the trunk can sometimes introduce audio noise (its pretty rare that they do)

      most likely we don't have anything for your radio if your radio speaks "clarion" to the changer, however if you have have a bose headunit, or a headunit out of a 98+ car whe have audio inputs or ipod interfaces

      Need help, please. I went through Crutchfield (sorry, John), and ordered a Peripheral ipod adapter. Here's my mess:
      I have a 2003 VW Jetta Wagon with Monsoon.
      I wanted one that didn't connect in the trunk (they screwed that up; told me to buy peripheral, charging me for the tools to take out the stereo; but they did not give me enough tools -- only 2.) So, they are sending me two more, but then in talking with tech support, the guy told me that it needs to be connected through the trunk.
      So, I started to do that today. I thought I found the connection for the cd changer in the back on the driver's side. It was flatter, and rectangular. However, all of the harnesses I recieved from crutchfield are fatter, boxier harnesses. Some of them: VW1, VW2, VW3, which I assume are supposed to fit all the models of Jetta in recent years.
      So, what gives? Should it connect in the back of the stereo? Do I need ANOTHER harness? Is the connection elsewhere, hidden in the back of my car? (I doubt it, as this connection was RIGHT THERE)
      Many thanks

    25. 11-06-2006 07:58 PM #50
      No. Wait. I figured it out. Crutchfield did send me what I needed. I needed the vw3 attachment (I did not have #1). THe sales guy did know, but two tech support people did NOT know. The Peripheral guide is also out of date, and makes no mention of the necessary harness; in fact, it says that the harness is not yet made.
      I was researching through discountcarstereo.com and they have great instruction and images -- that's how I finally figured this crap out. They had a link to the harness matrix.
      Also, so what they did do wrong (besides bad advice) was send me only two removal keys. So, once I get those, I should be good to go.
      SO, here's a question: how do I route the cable from behind the stereo out into the car with my 2003 Jetta?
      Thanks
