    Hi,

    I recently upgraded to a RNS-E from a Symphony II. On the Symphony II I had a connects 2 iPod adapter (Connects 2,Car Audio integration specialists) CTAADIPOD003.2.

    Will this work on my RNS-E as the Connects 2 has ISO connectors and my RNS-E has a ISO to MultiLock harness.

    I would like to get this working but if its not possible, whats the best/cheapest way to play my iPod through the RNS-E.

    Regards,
    Areeb

    Can't comment on the connects2 adapter you have but, I have an Rnse with a connects2 adapter, works as it should.

    iirc correctly the Connects2 interface utilistes the CD-Changer port, which the RNS-E and Symphony II share the same plug, so it'll be fine.

    Hi,

    I plugged everything in and it works. However I have a small problem.

    It plays the music on the iphone but it has a very irritating high pitched whine which is present whether or not music is being played.

    The whine increases with acceleration and increases with the volume of the music.

    The radio and the CD are crisp and have no whine so I am assuming it must be related to the Connects2 adapter.

    I mounted the ground wire to a screw on the RNS-E headunit so I am thinking that maybe that is the issue.

    Does anybody know of a fix for this as the whine is quite audible even when music is playing.

    Regards,
