    Factory ipod connectors - any good?

    Anyone had a car delivered with the new ipod connector fitted? I am told that there are problems and that these long awaited devices will not be fitted to new cars in the near future.

    Re: Factory ipod connectors - any good?

    I don't have it. AFAIK it's just an FM transmitter, i.e. useless.

    It was a stopgap solution because I believe the facelifted 987/997 will have proper Bluetooth and iPod support.

    I've noticed it's no longer on the Tequipment catalog. The facelifted 997 will be introduced next month so I understand why they'd drop it.

    Re: Factory ipod connectors - any good?

    Where'd you hear that? I've already seen cars with them fitted from factory and heard of people ordering them from Parts at their OPC.

    It is indeed an FM modulator but not a transmitter. Its an in-line device that connects to the antenna socket, but disconnects the antenna when activated. In other words, you shouldn't get interference from radio sources when in MP3 mode, but it will be limited to the frequency range of FM broadcasts.

    I am waiting for the delivery of my car currently planned for May. The dealer informed me about 4 weeks ago that the Musicplayer interface (CES) may not be factory built into my Boxster. Is it really just am FM integration? I though it was a fully integrated option with play lists visible on the PSM module?

    Re: Factory ipod connectors - any good?

    Thanks Popolou. It's not as bad as I thought, but still nowhere good enough.

    Playlists and Song/Artist names don't show on the PCM screen, do they?

    For the time being, the Dension Gateway 500 is still the item to get.

    German online configurator states iPod connector is not available in foreseeable future...

    Re: Factory ipod connectors - any good?

    here is a factory one..

    Porsche released an FM solution? Pathetic.

    Groom it is possible to show ipod artist/song info using RDS radio info.
