Hey everyone, I'm new here, so pardon the question on a well-worn topic. I'm considering buying an '06 V50, but I MUST have my iPod. This car has the premium stereo and the built-in changer. Is there any way to hook up an iPod without selling my soul?

What's the latest info?
Thanks,
J

Yes there is. Look at the Dension Gateway 500. You have the right sound system for it (Premium with changer). I am looking to grab one myself. The only problem is they are $400 - $500.

There is a big thread on the topic here on SS.

Thanks Stan. I was looking at the Dension site, and it seems like the premium is the only one they don't support. Here's the link. Do I have this wrong?

Seriously, I'm bummed. I found a car in great condition with low miles locally. And I really like driving it. But I've had cars with iPod hook-ups for like 10 years now. I can't go back. If there's a way to do this on an '06 V50, then I'm in.

Try the Parrot Mki9200 and the correct harness from Dynamic Sound in London, UK.

I think that they have it wrong. See this thread... http://forums.swedespeed.com/showth...on-with-Dension-Gateway-500&highlight=Gateway

Does the Parrot Mki9200 directly interface to the MOST bus?

Thanks for the link. A lot of good info in there. Is it me, or have a lot of people had trouble getting the Dension to work?
