Re: Changing from factory IPod controller to Imiv (satdan)

Dan, both use the mulbus connector at the HU, so that cable may be reusable.
The other cable (ipod cable) may not be the same though.

Are you sure you want to switch units? The text function on the iMIV works as advertised, but is limited by the HU functionality. i.e. If you skip forward a track or playlist then the text goes away and you have to press a button on the HU to see it again.

If you want to see one in action before investing all that install time, feel free to drop by and test the functionality in my car first (I'm in Milton and work in TO).

Re: Changing from factory IPod controller to Imiv (satdan)

It should be easy then.
-take off panels
-unplug the Volvo adapter from the Melbus cable.
-plug iMIV into melbus cable.
-plug ipod cable into imiv
-supply power to imiv
-connect ipod
-test
-reassemble all the panels and trim in car

*see the link in my signature for panel removal pictures
