    track 01, track 02, track 03, track 04 - see where this is going?

    As far as the head unit is concerned all it sees is an external cd changer.

    Quick question for you Mitch if you dont mind. What do you dock your iPod on? Did you get the Denison Active cradle? Also how do you mount it on your dashboard?

    If you'd like to see track names, then fit an RNSe and use SD cards. This is the only option at the moment.

    I bought the active cradle and mount it on the heater vents. Works a treat for me. I'll post a pic if you like?

    I think your s looks better than mine Jon but less usable as you have to look down to much to use it.

    Yup - that's true - normally try and make sure I've got enough tunes to keep me going the whole journey - either that or I swap over to the SD cards in the RNS-E
