No iPod Control

Hey all,

Just soliciting thoughts and opinions on the following:

When I ordered my Jeep I specifically said I wanted iPod control through the radio to the dealership (via email also).

I have the 430N Garmin which, at delivery, learned it doesn't have that.

How would you guys feel? and what course of action, if any, would you take?

Thanks again for the help.

Drumandfly

My 430N has excellent iPod control with my 2nd gen ion nano....but is very sketchy with my iPhone 3GS. Lots of others have reported varying degrees of success but most have probes.

Re: No iPod Control

The iPod connection is done via the USB port located under the center armrest.
With my iPod classic I find this to be a reliable method:

plug in Ipod
power on radio
wait 30 seconds
press the Media button on left hand side of radio
the AUX soft button should be active on the screen
Listen to music...



You should also see Uconnect on the iPod display.

Re: No iPod Control

Ipod control works just fine on 430N, iphones, ipods, etc. All work on ours.

I'm not sure what model iphone you have but my 3GS BT streaming is ok as long as I preselect my playlist but if the screen comes on for any reason, it plays fast until the screen goes off. Attaching the 3GS via the usb in the center console is hit and miss...mostly miss.

Re: No iPod Control

it sounds like no one told him, and he didnt bother to look in the owners manual, about the USB..............in the center console.




so OP: send a box of cookies to that dealer to remove the spell you cast on him for not following directions. he sold you exactly what you asked for.......

Re: No iPod Control

I sure hope the 430N works well... I wanted the Garmin Nav.

Re: No iPod Control

^^^^^^ the good thing is Im sure some major audio player makes it, not fiat so they will have to stand behind it if it plain DOES NOT WORK.


and garmin maps are cheap. thats another good reason.

Re: No iPod Control

Thanks all. I have only been able to drive the car home from the dealership and haven't seen it since! Hopefully soon I will be home to "check it out."

I remember seeing a 12volt sign in the center armrest but thought that was just a charger port.

There is both a charger port and USB port in the center console with the 430/430N radios.
