Anyone here with a navi tried to hook up an iPod?

I want to retain my CD changer so I am in the process of connecting the iPod through the aux input. I'm just waiting for the cables.

Tom,

This is an interesting thing. I have the OEM VW Navi with the big screen on board. I know, VW is offering special kits to connect iPods at least to the current models. But I don't know if they offer the same for the "older" models, too.

Yes. These iPod models:
iPod (3G, 4G, 4G U2-Edit.,Mini, Nano og Photo)

should be compliant with the following models:
Alpha, Gamma og Gamma CD i New Beetle. Beta (1J0..., 6X0..., 7D0...) Og Gamma (1J0..., 6N0..., 7D0...), Delta 6, R100, RCD200, RCD300, RCD500, MCD og MFD, RNS300, RNS MFD2 CD, RNS MFD DVD, RN-S2 CD og RN-S2 DVD

according to the official danish VW website. It's sold for approx. 170 USD.

I believe that VW is just selling a version of the kit made by Denison. These are available in eBay for about $60. Five playlists can be displayed plus shuffle.They work fine but you will loose your CD changer.

The only dissapointment with all of these options is that the navi will not display the songs or playlist.

Whatever they offer, it's possible. I found the same like Spinner in Denmark now in Germany. It's offered by VOTEX, the accessory subsidiary of VW.

Link to the VOTEX Germany site incl. part number.

And it's cheaper than in Denmark, round about 100 euros.

Got the iPod installed using the AUX port on the MFD so I was able to retain the CD changer. The only drawback is that this connection will not charge the iPod. Oh well two steps forward and one step back.

I spent ~14 hours in my car this past weekend driving to Canada and back. Just love having the iPod hooked up. So much better than the radio or listening to CDs.
