When I met with Vertigo1 yesterday to try out the B&O sound, we tried to connect my IPod Classic (5th generation, 60GB model) and the AMI didnt work. It simply said 'Unknown device' on the MMI screen. My iPod is formatted by Mac, not Windows - but works perfectly in my A6.
According to the A3 brochure, the AMI 'provides connection for Apple iPod from 4th generation and Apple iPhone'.
Has anyone successfully connected an iPod Classic to their new A3, and if so, what generation is it?
For details on the different iPod generations, check here (scroll down):
I don't mind selling it and buying a newer one, or even an iPod touch if I really have to (not enough capacity on my iPhone 4 for my music!) but would be very interested to hear people's experiences. It could just be that it needs a software update so I'll check that too.
