I installed the IMIV that I've had sitting in my closet for a year <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> and it works and plays music but on the radio it displays 10 disc changer it also displays a TV mode .I was under the impression that it would display song titles on the HU the steering wheel controls do work though.I figured I'd post this since we have a few IMIV guru's any help would be greatly appreciated.TIA<p><br>PS I have the factory nav and installed it according to the IMIV installation instructions.

Why don't you email iMIV directly?

Re: IMIV Install ???? (JRL)

Going to try that too but since I'm the second owner I'm sure it's on me plus I'm pretty confident I will get a faster response from SS <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Go on their website and download the instructions. Make sure you have the proper firmware downloads for your head unit and Ipod. My IMIV works through the Sirius I source, so I'm not sure how yours is hooked up.

What Channels you can see on the Radio depends on the Firmware. The displayed information and control features are activated by using the "Advanced Mode". <br>Get the manual and check Simple/Advanced mode. <p>I don't now if "Disc Changer" supports titles and other content of the id3-Tag.<br>If it doesn't show it create an imiv Account and get another firmware.<br>I am using SAT-Channel which displays everything <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><br>@HU-850 with RTI<p>When it was sitting in the closet i would recommend a firmware update anyway.

You need to download the correct firmware. You will need the one that uses the Satellite Input for your iPod in order to display the song titles. <p>Go to the website, it lays it all out pretty well.

try the audio forum, the people in the know are over there. This is just the R problems forum.
