    Question 2007 S3 ipod nano v3

    Hi there,

    Firstly I’d like apologies if this seems a repeat of a similar thread but….

    I have asked Santa for a Ipod Nano v3 8gb for xmas and was wondering what Ipod kit is compatible?

    I have been reading other threads/post but frankly I’ve been overwhelmed with conflicting reports!

    Can anyone be specific for my 2007 S3 with concert radio (no Bose)?

    I also like the look of the ipod holders but do they all require holes drilled (if they do I wont buy one)

    How easy is it to run cable through the front console without use of drills etc....?

    I really want to get an Ipod purely to do away with the large quantities of cds I keep in the car.

    any info on this subject is much appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Mike

    Dension do some good kits that use the standard radio connections and the mounts they provide are I think compatible with the new Nano. Using a Brodit mount as well will mean you can mount it on the car without any drilling etc.

    Take a look at the site below as they sell the Dension kits and Brodit mounts.

    Thumbs up ipod

    I ordered a dension gateway 100 and the cable as I believe a mounting kit hasnt been made yet for the relatively new ipod Nano Version/Gen 3.

    how have other A/S3 owner routed the cables into the glove box?
    dont really want to start making holes etc...

    there should be a point on the headunit where you can earth the dension to. You'll probably need to crimp a small spade connector to the dension earth cable.

    No idea on the 8P glovebox, but on my 8L, I had to drill a hole. I made sure it was in the top right corner behind the passenger airbag defeat switch so that it was impossible to be seen. I made the hole just big enough to pass the DENSION (round) end of the cable through, and tied a VERY loose knot in the cable outside of the glovebox so that any excessive pulling on the cable wouldn't rip wires out of the headunit.

    gateway 100

    I have setup the nano version 3 with the gateway 100 in my S3. why does it jump from any cd 1-4 onto cd 5 once its been playing for 20secs or so???

    Can you also control the ipod controls not radio when its connected? it doesnt work.
