    Ipod connection

    ive just invested in a ipod classic cause my car has the audi ipod connection fitted. After loading some songs on to the ipod and pluggin it in my car it dont seem to be doing anything. Am i doing something wrong or isn't my ipod compatible with the adapter??

    Put the headunit into CD mode and press buttons 1 to 6 to access the first 6 playlists on your ipod.

    According to my colleague ( A3 / Ipod dock / nano ) he just presses CD on the HU.
    He doesn't even know how to make a playlist on his Nano!

    IIRC if you press CD twice it switches from the CDs to the iPod (or external CD changer).

    It does. Mine has the SAT NAV cd in the front, If I found I couldn't use the sat nav whilst listening to the ipod there'd be HELL to pay

    yeah. I thought it worked with a CD in as I seemed to remember seeing it cycle thru the option...


    Cheers.
