    Should the iPod connector from the standard head unit charge the iPod?

    I have a connector in the glove box that I plug my iPod mini into, but it doesn't charge from the unit - is this Normal?

    Thanks

    You'll need an adapter cable to move the charging pin to suit the newer pin allocation.

    I see - it says in the manual that charges, but it currently doesn't.

    Are you able to provide? Is it simply a case of changing the cable between the HU and adaptor 'pod'?
