    Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    Well well after 10,000 threads Porsche have finally delivered. Looks like it is available to all P cars on orders from now on.

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    Nice PDF. Finally eh?

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    Thanks for sending da duke.

    Unfortunately it looks like a partial integration with only volume control through the PCM as opposed to music selection and volume. Any word on if it will also charge the player?

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    not sure yet just how much sexiness the connection has in terms of integration with the PCM unit. Will let you know as soon as I can get the info from Germany.

    Since the PDF mentions the apple connection, i would imagine that with a simple firmware update along with the wiring, control of the ipod would be included.

    Even if it was JUST aux-in it's been 5 years in the making!

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    On new cars only or available as a retrofit through Tequipment? I assume the latter...any idea on price?

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    Looks like it comes through on FM radio rather than hardwired like the Dension. The picture on the PCM shows it in position '0' on the station list.

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    ...according to local Porsche centre this morning - having seen the pdf - the iPod/MP3 connector is still not available for MY08???

    any ideas on the source of the info?


    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    I'm also interestied in knowing if its posible to retrofit!?

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    The top right corner of the pdf states "Exclusive and Tequipment". Literally, all that means is that THAT DEPT is involved but it must surely be reasonable to assume that a Tequipment retrofit should be available.

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    From what I heard it seems that it will be retrofit for even pre-9x7 in the future just hope that this now available version is retrofit for MY05 and not just MY06 at least.

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    If its just an aux in, it is delivering less functionality that either Denison and Nav TV. And knowing Porsche, the retrofit if possible would cost more.

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    It is just an AUX in. Hence the mention of the 3.5mm plug. Just volume control, no charging, no music selection. It won't be FM modulation though so that is a +. The bright side is it will work with any MP3/music player. If it cost more than $50 to retrofit it is a rip-off.

    What the hell. Turn off the radio and open the window.

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    just heard from Porsche Germany that it will be available as an option to retrofit (and should not require PCM), but it's not yet ready to order - even for MY08 orders - as they are still working on some "technical issues"...


    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    I have no words to describe how lame this is

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    The only confusing part is the apple doc limited to 3rd generation players. This indicates a interface capability unless its only for charging; if so I agree its really lame.

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    Is there a web page with the info from Porsche? I called my dealer and he said they had not heard anything. He also said we get stuff later in the U.S.

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    it mean's third generation and above with dock connection

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    I want Porsche to worry about Porsche and standards - not about iPod - although I own only one of the former and two of the latter.

    Whatever Porsche does I would like to see a standard fitting. If there is none it us up to the MP3/iPod industry to do some homework.

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    iPod IS the standard. they have 70%+ of the market...

    Why do you think every other car manufacturer is doing it...

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    Be nice to see it in the flesh or at least a formal announcement...

    But Porsche seems never to be on the cutting edge with some technology

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    How about satellite radio?

    VW Golf: Getting iPod'ed


    German website "Auto News" is reporting that VW is eqipping the VW Golf with an optional iPod interface.
    The Apple iPod is going to be stored in the center console and you can operate it via the multifunctional steering wheel.
    The iPod interface is compatible with the iPod and iPod mini and ready to order from today for a price starting at 195 Euro (only available for the VW Golf and VW Golf GTI).

    Source: Auto News (only in German)

    [only two years later than VW...]

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    My dealer has confirmed that this option (CES) is still not available for the GT3's.

    Re: Ipod/Mp3 connection Here at last

    For those that want full PCM integration, here is the web link for another option other than Dension and NAV TV
