    hi all

    I have a 2006 A3 with the Concert CD player fitted, i am looking for a good Ipod adaptor for this radio. Will the adaptor let me see the track names/album on the display?

    thanks

    There is no such product. The Ipod interfaces all use the CD changer port and it does not support CD text.

    You could check out the Harmon Kardon Drive+Play. Big pockets and SVP were doing them for £23 recently. I have one in my new A3 and it works superbly with my iphone. It shows track / artist / album / playlists on its own lcd screen.

    Mine connects via the 3.5mm port in the centre console. I don't know if yours has that but it can also connect to the headunit, via FM transmitter (built in but like all such devices it isn't very good sound quality), a an optional hardwired FM modulator (plugs into aerial socket with an aerial passthrough - better) or via phono pre ins into the back of the headunit (best if you have them, or any kind of pre-in so you can make up an adapter).
