      Thanks for the reply, I'm assuming that my ipod OEM connector will work fine with the DICE unit (no need to be ripping out wires in the center console or under the arm rest).

      it is possible to reuse your stock wiring and insatll the dice brain, however Dice would want you to use their radio harness and ipod cable, if you'd like us to do the install please call or e-mail us to set up an apointment (if we do the install we will use the dice harnesses) if you choose to do the install yourself you can use whatever harness works better for you

      Also, would this be a better (more cheap alternative) for my situation....http://www.diceelectronics.com/Merchant/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=DETEST01&Categ ory_Code=AUX

      no, that product is designed to connect to an aftermarket radio with an auxilary input, it won't directly connect to your car and it won't let you control your ipod from the radio or steering wheel controls

      will there be a day i can use the cd player ever agan and have the i pod playing
      thx

      what you want to do is possible, however the add on cd player in the front of your car is a bit picky about which interfaces it will work with, what unit are you using?

      I've read through the thread, but may have missed the recommendation for my particular config....
      `07 Passat Wolfsburg w/ in-dash changer & Sirius SAT, and (currently) the Aux input. What is the best iPod integration option- the Dice unit?
      thks...

      can anyone help me with this problem? I have installed a blitzsafe onto my double din headunit on my mk4 jetta. Heres the breakdown:
      -The ipod integration works fine, so I am able to play music through the ipod.
      -The in dash CD player works.
      -However, the radio is totally disfunctional! Not one station works on the radio, and I have no clue why! All i hear is static, regardless of where i tune in.
      -I installed the unit a couple of months ago, but this has been the first time since I have tried listening to the radio. The only thing I can think of is that my ground connection is screwing things up? I connected the ground wire to one of the many screws on the back of the head unit's aluminum/metal framing.

      What could be wrong?

      the dice I-VW-R would be a good solution
      connecting the dice unit will disable the factory aux input, however the dice unit will have its own aux input you can use for all your non ipod needs

      you'll also want to use the sat pass thru to keep your sat radio functional

      I'm sorry to hear you're having problems, my suggestion would be to connect the ground to the wire under the black rubber nub to the screw located there
      however based on your description, I belive that you antenna has been disconnected in the reinstalation of your radio, pull your radio out, verify the antenna connection

      I ordered a Blitzsafe VW/MLink1 V.3A from Enfig for my '06 Passat. I received it this week and attached it to the CD changer port in the glove compartment. My iPod works as expected, but there is a chiming whirr background noise. After reseating the cable and trying a different iPod, I discovered the the noise occurs even when the iPod is disconnected and also occurs regardless of whether the ignition is on or off. The tone does not seem to change with acceleration when the car is running. I recorded a sample of the noise. Link to the sample below:

      Power line filter? Ground loop isolator? Young priest/old priest?

      Thanks to John for helping us all sort out our iPod puzzles. Mine is a 2004 New Beetle convertible. It has the OEM Monsoon, am/fm and cassette in the dash, and a cd changer in the armrest. I would like to preserve the use of the CD changer, is that possible with my setup?

      thats possible in one of two ways, is controling the ipod from your radio an important feature to you?

      any updates on an integration kit that will display track titles on an mk5 premium radio? (indash changer) other options?

      have an 2008 r32 and was wondering what you have for it both ipod and or blue tooth

    15. 09-12-2007 02:10 PM #140
      for ipod only I'd suggest the Dice I-VW-R
      Link to Dice I-VW-R

      then for bluetooth you can use a parrot bluetooth kit with the propper steering wheel control module
      or, if you'd like to have one product that does both, you can get:
      Dension gateway 100
      +
      Dension bluetooth adpater

      Just to let all you crazy up to date people with iPhones...
      These kits do work to allow ipod control on the phone, and do not throw error messages on the phone.
      I have a Kenwood deck in my 2001 GLX that throws a "not recognized accesory connected" code. These kits just use the audio, and allow all control as long as the kits don't make you have to play playlists like the factory kit.

      This is a great thread - thanks to all who have contributed here. I have been looking for this information for quite a while.
      Though I have gone through this whole thread, just to be safe, I would like to ask my specific q. here :
      I have a Passat 2006 with factory installed XM/in-dash 6 cd changer/CD player. I am not sure this has an 12-pin AUX connector in the glove compt as I haven't checked, but I believe it does.
      I need to get my 1st-gen ipod (yeah...that ancient!) working with it.
      What would you suggest as the cheapest way to connect it ? I probably wont get a device which allows control from the HU since this ipod only has a firewire port, but thats fine.
      Also will it disable the XM radio and/or the CD-changer ?
      Thanks !!

      Went thru all 5-pages and couldn't find this combo:
      '04 New Beetle convertible with Monsoon cassette HU and armrest mounted OEM 6 disk CD changer.

      I want to keep the changer and put the iPod in the glove box.
      In case ur wondering, I'm keeping this HU because NO ONE IN THE WORLD WOULD WANT TO STEAL IT.

      Hi, I read through the entire thread but didn't see exactly what I wanted/needed mentioned. Here's the application I want:
      I've got an iPod Touch on order. After 3.5 years with a 3G iPod and Griffin iTrip, i want a wired connection. I have a 1998 New Beetle with a CD changer in the trunk. Here's my needs:
      -Price: Under $100 if at all possible
      -would like to connect to CD changer connection in the trunk and run the wire up to the front passenger cupholder...Don't want to remove the radio! Don't want to drill any holes.
      -Don't care about controlling anything from the radio..will keep all control on iPod Touch.
      -Don't care about retaining CD changer (seeing as I could always plug it back in)
      Essentially, I want to uplug the CD changer (but leave it mounted in case I want to plug it back in), plug in a cable and run the cable to the front, and go. No frills needed. Oh, and obviously it needs to work with the Touch, though I don't know why it wouldn't.
      Thanks for your help...this thread has already gotten me started down the right path!

      you'll need this:
      Blitzsafe mlink
      and
      the extension cable to run the cable from the trunk up

      How come everyone else gets hooked up with adapters priced between 49.99-149.99 and mine's 299.99?

      Thanks, I think that looks exactly like what I want....Do you (or anyone else) know if it still works with the new iPod Touch, though? Or maybe the iPhone, since they are so similar....Thanks againf for the help!
