i have the symphony 2 radio
can a ipod adapter or the new usb adapter be installed with this ?
Don't see why not, both the iPod/USB adapter are consoles located in the glove compartment so must be an AUX in type connection round the back. I hope so as I haven't specified it on my new car but might have it retro fitted.
Do a search on the ICe forum part, there quite a few articels. The most popular interface is the Dension one for connecting up your ipod. They use the CD player interface and you control the iPod as a multichanger. There's some other options as well for connecting up a memory stick for example.
Simple solution: get one of these.
Works just fine for me.
The problem is if you do many miles you have to keep changing the broadcast frequency of these iTrip type things due to our overcrowded airwaves.
Go for either the Audi ipod adaptor or the Dension one.
FM modulators suck, stay well clear.
the ipod adapter will be costly as i dont own an ipod , but i do have an assortment of usb sticks.
any body got the part number of the usb adapter and cost ?
also how do i fit it in the glove box do i need any extra bits ?
Sounds like you are after something like the install done by Synthdood.
He posted a link on here showing how he did it.
Hope this helps.
actually im after one of these for the audi connector
That looks great.
Is it easy to route the cable down from the console, and out behind the handbrake into the armrest?
Halfords do an adapter which is an almost identical, plug in jobby.
Made by Connect2 and costs 49.99.
I've recently fitted one to connect my Tomtom 910 MP3 player & handsfree kit.
Took me about 30mins to fit the adapter and about another hour to tidy the wiring up.
Curry does it just connect using a head phone jack plug into your mp3 player?
so it looks like i have these options
buy new glovebox and and usb adapter to fit in where changer goes
buy solisto device prefer oem though
buy a rns-e use sd cards
hope audi bring symphony 3 to our shores
buy dension ipod adapter and ipod.
so far im liking the rns-e and symphony 3 route.
for now i will use el cheapo casette adapter thing and nokia pop port to 3.5mm jack for my n70 as an mp3 player. bagain £4 all in
You allow the children to drive your car?!?!?!

Cheers Mr Curry
