I just bought a 2002.5 Jetta (Mk IV) which has a double-din monsoon with steering wheel controls
I need to add an ipod interface.
I use both Gen 5 ipod and an iphone
My needs are as follows:
I must be able to control the ipod from the ipod itself (podcasts are not in playlists, so most on-headunit interfaces don't work well)
I would like to use the steering-wheel controls for ffwd/rewind and or next/previous track (I can live without that) but I don't want them to do anything with playlists
I want to use the dock connector/aux out, not the headphone jack. The ipod/iphone should charge as well (5v or 12v?)
It looks like one of the DICE units will do this, but I am unable to confirm from this thread
With a cassette adapter, I have an intolerable amount of interfearance from the GSM radio in the phone (intermittant audio noise). Are the direct links better on the monsoon?
