Re: The totally useless iPod interface in V70 MY2009 (Johann)

How is yours broken? Mine works. 2nd gen phone with 3.0 software.<p>When I plug it in, it throws an error message saying "this accessory is not designed to work do you want to turn on airplane mode" i say no and it works fine.<p>I didn't notice however, that the phone gets very hot while charging / connected to the car but otherwise the interface is working just fine.

I've noticed this happens once in a while connecting the phone to my computer. Have you tried turning the phone completely off then on again?

No, as far as I know there's no need to jailbreak an iPod, as there's no carrier lock.<p>I did notice the other day that there's a small lag between operations (pushing the button for next track gets the next track, but it takes the display a few seconds to start displaying info). Maybe that's some kind of incompatibility. But other than that it works fine.<p>I'm guessing you'll need an update from Volvo. Which might take a while. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

iPhone 3G 16GB with 3,0 works perfect in a MY10 S80.

Why would anyone use their 500€ iPhone in the car for playing music from? Aren't you using it for phone call first hand? Can you even make phone cals while connected to the stereo?<br>1. Buy a 16GB USb stick for 50€<br>2. Buy an iPod Nano for the extra iPod functionality, ie browse by artist etc etc.<br>

Re: (T5_awd)

Why no USB stick?<p>Because I'm only carrying a phone with me.<p>Anyway, got the thing working again. Appears some Cydia apps break things. Some of these apps don't work properly on the 3.0 firmware. Removed everything and now it is functioning again. <p>Thanks for reporting the 2G can work with the Volvo adapter else I wouldn't have made the effort.. <p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (Johann)

I guess you can't just put the usb stick in the car and forget about it?<p>I tried my iPhone 3G yesterday in the car, won't charge the phone but it works fine. When making calls the music is silent and paused.<br>It's quite a hassle to use the phone when it's connected to the connector due to the placement of the cable between the chairs.<br>I guess if you have Bluetooth in the car and that works properly it's another deal.

Very little space left and added to that when out of sight I often forget to take the phone with me when I get out of the car.

Re: (Johann)

To those with bluetooth, I find even with it I still reach for the phone to dial the number, then use the bluetooth for speaking. I have voice dial too, but sometimes it doesn't catch the right name, so you have no choice but to use the phone to manually dial.<p>Also, with my Blackberry and over 600 contacts, it can't seem to sync them / download them, so I can't just use the console to scroll through my contacts forever to find someone and then press Enter to call them.<p>You don't have that issue? How do you deal with it?

Re: (Lotus99)

I rerouted the iPod cable to come out next to the vent holes in the dashboard where I plan to mount the iPhone.<br>I am going to order this <A HREF="http://cablejive.com/charge-converter" TARGET="_blank">http://cablejive.com/charge-converter</A><br>Then I can enjoy my iPhone for everything and still charge it.
