iPod integration with 430N/730N
 
I have my old iPods (classic and touch 1st gen) and I wonder how they will work with UCONNECT (430N or 730N). Not asking if I can play audio through headphones jack but more from browsing the audio collection point of view and being able to use my voice to play different albums/artists. Essentially looking for seamless integration with audio system and serving more like a hard drive extension to the build in one.

If I could do something like that why would I even consider moving anything to the 40GB (more like 20GB) build in hard drive. Better performance maybe?

I have an iPod Classic and 730N. I leave it it in the armrest. It plays just fine and the screen is great to play songs, play lists etc...
I do however wish it was faster to recognize right after start up.

... so once you start the car I would assume there is a considerable lag before your music is accessible? Are we talking seconds? Minutes?

I would imagine files need to be indexed once the device is reconnected so that might take a while. On the other hand, I would guess that should only happen when you connect a new device or filesystem has changed.

It can be a few minutes sometimes.

It really depends on the amount of material that you have on the device, could be a few seconds to a couple minutes.

Also wondering if iPod Touch / iPhone would be faster as it uses flash drive and not HDD.

My iPhone 4S connected to UConnect pretty quickly and there is not much lag to play any files from AUX using the adapter cord. I will try my very old classic soon to see what the difference is.

My iPod Classic 60gb is recognized within 30 seconds and plays very well with very little lack time. I have an original iPod Touch that I have simply given up on using with my 730N. It would take minutes to be recognized, if ever at all.

Not at all. The HDD interface is a nice fast parallel ATA. The USB port is old-school USB 1.0, not 2.0, so transfers are pretty slow. Bluetooth streaming is even slower.
