    I just traded my 2005 4R in on a 2013 Tacoma SR5 and drove it home today. I am pleased and have everything working except the Ipod interface. This feather was fairly important to me. Ipod interface wasn't available on the 2005 4R but I installed a DICE Ipod interface and I have gotton use to +5000 songs of what I want to hear. Can't get my Ipod to work, when I plug it up the radio screen shows not connected and the Ipod shows the "do not disconnect" message as if I'm updating it via computer. I have checked the Owner Manuel, which lists the Ipod models supported. Apple has made a zillion types of Ipods (and a poor job of kepping up support wise of the many many models) but it appers mine may be not supported . It appears to be a 20GB Classic click wheel which is not on the list. Any advice on this; any ideads on how to confirm it's an outdated model issue or something else. Any hacks availaible? Does anyone have experience with an lower price MP3 player that works well with the Tacoma. Any ideas, sussustions, advice, words of support greatly appreciated.
    Thanking y'all in advance for any assistance.

    Hey, I have a older 120GB classic that i use on my 2012 tacoma and it works flawlessly: I turn on my ipod, connect the cable, than press the AUX button till i get ipod. make sure your on the right aux input because i believe there is one called audio BT which is for a phone, this would produce the "not connected" message.

    The "do not disconnect" means the ipod has reconized that it's connected and is charging the ipod.

    You could try resetting the ipod (google directions on how to do so) or trying a different cable.

    Good luck.
