    This is highly recommended. I don't own one myself but other posts I've found say it's the best to buy.

    It's cheaper because you have to physically handle your ipod to change tracks etc whereas the Dension ones charges your ipod and allows you to control the track changing via the headunit.

    Right,

    So am i right in saying that all standard concert stereos (mine is an Audi a3 2007 2.0tdi) have an auxilary input to facilitate an audio cable? Its just a matter of pulling the head unit out and installing?

    Cheers,

    Matt

    No, if you read the above posts, you will need to do exactly the same thing as MarlowA3, you need an aux adaptor (like the Connects2 interfaces).

    That needs to be wired into a switched/ignition live (in the fuse box) as otherwise your ipod may drain your car battery unless if unplug it after getting out of the car.

    Ah balls i'm clearly out of my depth! The wire is like 5 inches long only?! I'll have to wire that From behind the radio to the fuse box? Feck.

    And it's my iPhone so will be taken out each time. Thing is, if I just plugged the blue plug in and grounded (like i tried) would it just work?

    Possibly, it's hard to tell. Worst case scenario is that you get an error on your headunit displaying NO CDC.

    To be honest, for a few quid more, you can get a second hand dension unit from ebay and they are pretty much plug and play.
