Re: iPod control via HeadUnit
My 430N is working fine with my 80gb Classic. Not sure about playlists, though; not tried. I tend to browse by artists/albums/genre.
That said, I find using the head unit to navigate its music is cumbersome and slow. i.e., I'd much rather quickly use the thumbwheel to find, say, a particular artist, rather than keep hitting Page Down key or pecking in the name via the head unit.
