    Thread: Volkswagen iPod Guide

    1. 09-13-2007 11:48 AM #141
      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!

      Guys,

      I have just been given an Neo iOn Ipod connector with a VW head unit lead.

      The connector is identical to the blue plug in the picture above, can you tell me what my unit is compatable with please


      Thanks, Gavinl

      Greetings,

      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?


      Thanks


    15. 10-09-2007 06:02 PM #155
      I belive I spoke to you earlier today, but in answer to your question I belive the DICE unit used in the "simple" mode will best suit your needs

      So I did the connection of an OEM VW ipod adapter to 2006 Passat. It took me about 2 hours because of that brown ground cable. After 1 1/2 hours and help from a relative and alot of help from this forum I pulled it out. BTW I fried the 15V fuse for the radio. Remember to remove it.

      The only thing is I need to know if there is something I can do to have full ipod control thru the radio? I can only see the five play list folders and the 6th folder for all the songs.

      So I just purchased the Dension icelink Gateway 400 for my '07 GTI with nav/sat/CD changer so that I could retain each of these functions. It has a video output, and I have an iPod with video capability. Is there any way to connect the iPod to the OEM nav system for video playback? There's mention of a TV tuner port on the back of the HU for other iPod integration uses (MK5 Nav IPOD); might this be used for video access in my vehicle? What type of display on nav screen should I expect while using my iPod with the Gateway 400?

      I have the non monsoon single DIN stereo & the single DIN CD Player with no Phatbox or CD Changer & an 80gb iPod Video (5.5G).
      Is the M-Link1 V3 what I need? http://enfigcarstereo.com/shop....html
      Or is there something else that I'm missing that's better? I like the cheap price & the US$ exchange rate too!

      the OEM unit is designed to work exactly as you have described, so there is no way to be able to acess anything but the first 5 playlists

      you can import video into your nav screen, to do so you will need an video interface, if you'd like to watch video while driving you'll also need an aditional part

      we can provide both to you, but they are specail order parts

      please contact us via phone or e-mail to discuss your options

      the Gateway 400 connects like an external cd changer, the display on the radio will be very similar to external CD changer showing disc and track info on the radio screen

      that product will work great for you

      if you don't already have a set, you might want to grab a set of radio removal tools to make the install quick and easy

      basic instructions are included for connecting the unit to your radio

      you car is super easy, you'll simply remove the radio by inserting the radio removal tools, then plug the unit in to the back of your radio as instructed and replace your radio

      John, I was following the IPOD threads, but didn't see anything regarding the VW Touareg. I have an '04, with factory radio, navigation, in dash CD and 6 disc CD changer. I copied the info below from a previous post, but am interested in the same functionality.

      "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"

      Can you help me?

      Thanks,

      Thanks,

      a great solution for you would be the dension gateway 100

      you'll need to use the following parts:

      Link to Gateway 100 Brain

      Link to CD changer retention add on module

      Link to ipod cable for gateway 100

      the gateway 100 will provide all the funtionality you requested

      I have an '05 Passat Wagon with Monsoon. I'd like to hook up an IPOD and Sirius Satellite Reciever. What components would I need? I don't have the CD Changer.

      Thanks in advance...

      I have a single-din 2001 Volkswagen GTI w/Monsoon and no cd changer installed (but it has the port for it of course). What's the cheapest adapter that'll allow me to control the iPod from the headunit (and thereby also from the steering wheel audio controls)?

      would you like to use a portable Sirius receiver, or a hide away car unit?

      the USA spec units are now on sale, they would be a great option for you

      Thanks


    33. 12-05-2007 02:02 PM #173
      the USA spec product I posed above will work great for that as well, the PA11 VW6 features an ipod interface so you can control the ipod from the radio, as well as an AUX input to which you can connect your portable Sat radio to , you'll be able to quickly switch between the ipod and sat radio using the radio controls and you'll enjoy clean line input sound from both sources

    34. 12-05-2007 03:35 PM #174
      How do you switch between the two? Would I be able to hook it up to the headphone port of my GPS and have the music interupted by the audio from the GPS?

    35. 12-05-2007 03:47 PM #175
      you'll switch using the disc buttons on the radio

      disc 5 will be the ipod, disc 6 will be the aux input

      the unit won't automaticaly switch itself to the aux when the garmin "talks" though
