    iPod track names on DIS

    Hi everyone.

    Picked up my A3 on Friday and it's got the factory iPod in the glovebox. I've seen others on here with iPod track names showing up on the DIS but all it says on mine is CD1 CD2 etc. I've got the Concert double din so not sure if it's something to do with the head unit or maybe another issue...

    Any advice?

    Thanks

    No issue, thats the way it is. You can get track names etc with certain cds.

    Can you? How do you do that then? Are you saying you can get track names to show up on the DIS using a CD created by yourself?

    If by DIS you mean the display by the speedo mine does this, for me though it's not brilliant as only shows the first 8 letters. So mainly only the first word & part of the second shown for the title. I have the RNS-E 2 mated to the AMI in the glovebox.

    Hi Tim
    Full track name is shown on RNSE & also then partly on the DIS. I find I always use the RNSE display when sorting through tracks.
