    ipod dock

    hey guys

    is there a way of getting the song titles on your ipod through the dock onto the mmi screen instead of just having track numbers....

    cheers

    Not that I know of.

    The ipod dock is totally and utterly useless waste of money. I hate mine with a passion! Worst thing about the car by far. Infuriates me how crap it is especially when you think how much they charge for it...

    l dont have mmi. Using the ipod from the glovebox doesnt give me any info, which is strange as l can burn a cd and it shows the info.

    The standard Audi iPod connection does not show any track information. CD tracks will display details as that uses a different techology. If you are using the Symphony Stereo with the inbuild CD changer then you will find that the MP3 also will not display track names.

    There is a new ipod connection called AMI I think that will allow the iPod menus and track details to be carrried into the new RNS-E display but this required the 3G/Mk2 RNS-E - Costly solution!
    If you already have sn RNS-E then you can buy an Alphine solution that carries the iPod features into the RNS through an Alpine interface. I think there was some limitations to this but can't quite remeber what.

    In summary the Audi iPod cable is not ideal - shame really!

    Depending on how much you wanna spend, there's this:

    I hope to (depending on my bonus!) have one of these fitted within the next 6 weeks.

    Re: ipod dock

    You could try the Dension products, I have the 300 model for my symphony headunit and it shows the trackname on the DIS.
