I just brought home a new Taco last evening, and I'm still working my way through the manuals. Hope someone can help me with some simple (I hope) iPod connection questions.
I have the entune head unit with Nav & JBL.
I want to hook up my old 160gb IPod Classic (6th gen I think). I have the cable/adapter I used to hook up the iPod with in my old BMW. It has the iPod adapter on one end, and both an Aux plug and USB plug on the other.
I had thought this plug/adapter would work. When it is installed, I can play the Pod through the Aux port and, it charges via USB. But i can't control it with the head unit, and the head unit doesn't display track info.
First, was I right to assume I'd be able to control the iPod through the head unit and display track info?
Second, what cable is necessary. At this point, i assume i should be using just a USB cable? Is there a particular one that works well, or will the generic Apple cable work?
Anyone come up with any ideas about stashing the ipod away? In my old car, it stashed in the center console. In my wife's audi, the plugs for the iPod are in the glovebox. I am sort of OCD about having wires all over the cab of my vehicle.
Are there any ways to do more of a hidden install?
