Re: No iPod Control

I don't know why they stopped with the 730N radios and went with the 430N. From what I understand the 730N's had the Ipod control available.

Both stereo units have iPod control. With the 730N, there's an iPod specific cable in the lower front console. With the 430/430N, there's a USB port in the center console; use a USB to iPod cable.

The USB port is more flexible, allowing use of a thumb drive or potentially even other kinds of media player. The cable is ready to go without having to grab anything else. As for compatibility, I lay that one at Apple's feet- if they didn't have such a propensity to screw around with things we wouldn't have to worry about all these silly iPod/device generations and what works well with which.

The 730N RER is no longer in production because it is going to get replaced by the 730N RHR. The 430N RHB was made standard on the Overland due partly to this and partly to the interface on the 430N RHB looking better to potential buyers.
