Like so many before me, I have learned a lot already from this forum, but want to make doubly sure before I pull the trigger:
I have a Canadian 2006 Jetta with the 6-disc in-dash cd player and the multi-function wheel, but no satellite radio...my HU face has a 'MIX' button, not 'SAT'. And there's no AUX jack in the glove compartment, even though I think they offered that later in my model year. I can't figure out from my owner's manual how you would select anything other than the 6-disc or the radio. I want to hook up my iPod but do not want the limited functionality and playlists of the OEM setup.
-Retain all current functions of the in-dash CD player and standard AM/FM radio.
-control the iPod from the iPod itself, with full access to all files, playlists, settings, folders, etc. that I would have outside of the car.
-have it wired up so I can access the iPod from the driver's and passenger's seat
-no bracket on the dash (lease car, gotta keep it neat and tidy). In the ashtray in front of the stick is ideal, could live with wire dangling out of the glove compartment.
-Analog i.e. headphone-jack-quality sound is good enough (as long as it is better than the crap radio transmitter I have now)
Nice to haves which I would pay for but are not critical:
-Any sort of control from the wheel
-Any sort of readout on the HU display
-Charging and / or digital audio connection
Based on all this I think I need the Dice Electronics i-VW-R. Am I right? Let me know and I'll send Enfig my credit card number.
