VW Fox iPod connector - help!
Found 28th Jun 2010
Hi - I'm looking to pick brains please because I know very little about cars! I have an 07 plate VW Urban Fox - I asked the garage to fit it so I can play my iPod - picked it up and they've put the connection in the glove box (which although is a pain I think is normal for this model) but my query is - they've fitted a lead - one end of which goes into the 'body' of the glove box (i.e can't be detached) and the other end has a fitting which plugs into the bottom of my ipod. But it's not an aux which I would've expected - the fitting is like the end of the iPod charger. When I plug it in, it comes up with a msg saying the device can't be charged and will play through my stereo BUT I can't change albums or playlists whilst it's plugged in. So basically if I want to change the album I'm listening to, I need to unplug the device, pick the album then plug it back on - is this normal?? I don't want to go back and look a right idiot if it is! My old car just had an aux point so I plugged one end of the lead into my ipod and the other stereo and still had full control of it
