    Quick question... Will my S Line A3 display the album art without the tech pack. Got an original iPod touch, dealer said he will supply me with the red cable.

    Thanks.

    Mine does with red cable, no tech pack, have to go into settings and tick additional info I think.
    Annoying thing is, it carries that setting onto the radio I recall (would need to do it again to confirm)

    I have an ipod nano 3rd gen and it works fine without the tech pack. I now use a 64gb SD card and it works flawlessly.

    With a standard black cable and an Android phone the album art is showing, but only after I selected reduced display in the MMI.

    Where is the "reduced display" setting???

    It's mentioned in the manual and all the time on here but I don't have it!

    Haven't tried album art on SD, good to know it works!

    I'm on vessel off Lagos so can't check it in my car, but found this in a different thread: Media -> Settings -> tick "Reduced Display".

    Yeah...seen that too. But it doesn't appear as an option for me. Wonder if it relates to software version

    Have you checked this thread?

    Our car was built in March 2013, and I'm pretty sure that the software has not been updated.

    Yeah I've read that thread but it doesn't help me.

    When I go to settings all I have is Sound Settings, Repeat, Detailed Info (or whatever it's called) and one other that I can't recall but isn't 'reduced display'.

    Sorry for being so vague but its definitely not on there

    Detailed info - can it be ticked on/off?

    Else I have no idea, and I'm a little to far away from my car to check my settings ;-)

    Yeah you can turn Detailed Info off but all you get then is a list of track names.

    Just to be clear. I do see a screen with track name, album, art work etc.

    My point was I don't have a reduced screen option...and whatever variations that may bring

    What does the radio info state? Radio channel, track name, show name?
