    TBH have you tested an older ipod to make sure its not faulty 1st as they shouldnt have changed the pins really on the bottom of the ipod for charging as that would mean all pre ipod accessories wouldnt neccessarily work, apple are stigma for apple branded goods but they're not that anal for sure.

    My 4th gen nano fits fine tbh and I've still got the slide that worked well with my 1st gen touch. That charged when docked but my nano doesn't. It doesn't charge when on my Bose Soundock in the house either so just assumed in was the ipod and not the car.

    Apple have changed the charging pins, they swapped to new ones ages ago, but the latest range of iPods do not support the original ones any more. Same problem with my iphone 3G with my Sony in the Golf, but my old Ipod nano was fine. Known problem I'm afraid:

    Yep, new iPods DO NOT charge in "old" docks - thanks Apple . There is an adaptor available which is small and sits between the dock and the iPod to allow charging.

    I'll try and find it on t'net.

    *******s, apple are ****s huh, I'm thinking a dismantle of the ipod adapter & move the pins or cut & move, this will resolve that issue easily

    But should audi be making customers aware that no ipods made after september 08 will fit properly in the dock or charge dam right they should especially with what they charge for it !!!!

    Yes they should indeed be making people aware, but on the flip side if the kit states which ipods it works with then guess they can say we did advise

    It really is the manufacturers like Audi at fault, but they are certainly not the only ones! Apple specs for the last 3 generations of iPods have used the new pinout, but have also supported the old ones for backward compatibility. Apple have done as they promised and dropped the backward compatibility which should only break accessories a good few years old!!

    It's just laziness on the part of accessory manufacturers!
