    Connects2 iPod question

    Anyone tried these connects2 units that plug into your cd changer port?
    i was gonna get a parrot 9100 kit but I believe u need another lead for rear amped audi's so thought I might get one of these as there quite cheap and I don't really use the cd changer in the glovebox and I'm not interested in hands free phone, just want the music off my iPhone playing through the car!

    Yeah ive had one in my old leon and golf, worked well good way of having all your music without having to get a better stereo, they do one now that charges your iphone/ipod too, bit more expensive, but theyre well worth the money imo

    Had one of them in my A4. Worked fine but in the end I changed it for a Dension Gateway as the Connects2 doesn't put the song name on the DIS whereas the Dension does.

    Haha cheers pal, as long as it works ill be happy with it, will it charge the phone up if I get a iPhone 5 lightning lead rather than the headphone lead and can I skip songs using the head unit?

    I dont believe the connect2 offers any headunit functionality, you have to control all of your music with the ipod/iphone or aux device, as for the charging i cant really comment as i only ever bought the budget option

    Ok guys fitted it today and it just says cdc1 track etc but nothing much else but for £20 I paid for it I'm not bothered as I can skip songs, fast forward and plays nice and clear so I'm chuffed but just got a redundant cd changer now!
