Sure... if you don't mind horrible audio and a lot of whinning and whirring as the cassette adapter spins in your deck.arrival said:Its easy just to buy similar converter and put in cassete deck
Ditto - with a VWCDPIC providing the interface to the factory radio.Preston said:omnifi dmp1... perfect solution for me
It connects to the rear of the headunit. So you would need to pull the radio out of the dash (which requires a special tool, or reasonable facsimile thereof). It should be usable on radios in all years of NBs.alessa said:Can someone tell me more about the ipod adapter that vw sells directly?
No, there are several available. Some connect to the headunit, like the VW cable, and some connect to the CD changer cable (in the center console on '03-'05's, otherwise it's in the trunk). 1stvwparts.com is selling the VW cable for right around $150... which is a cut-rate price (your dealer will charge you more). But it's right on par with most other makes of cables/adapters of this type. If you take a look at my how-to linked to at the top of this thread, most are listed in there.alessa said:Is there a cheaper alternative or is VW the only one who sells this particular cable?
Which one would you prefer?Steinola said:Some connect to the headunit, like the VW cable, and some connect to the CD changer cable
Preference is pretty subjective. I've helped a few buddies install the iCruze, and I really like that it offers an optional external LCD display that you can mount on the dash. It's kind of nice seeing what tune is currently playing. But it's hard to justify the full retail price for just that nicety alone. I did find a full iCruze set up on eBay for ~$40-50, including iCruze, display and adapter cable. That makes it a little harder to pass up. And it sounds great. The quality you expect from Monster Cable.alessa said:Which one would you prefer?
If I purchase one that connects to the CD changer cable, my ipod will then be in the center console rather than the glovebox? My center console is way too cramped for all that... it only has room for my garage opener and cellphone lol
Has anyone ever contacted VW Customer Service with a valid VW question and had it answered in a satisfactory manner? I called about missing my radio code and bud vase, and they said they could call the dealer to find out where they were. I told them that I already went that route, and the rep said, well that's all we can do.N8Zvw said:I was just wondering in the 2006 models they have a connector under the center of the console for mp3 players. Does anyone know if this cable that goes into the stereo is compatible with earlier indash cd player HU? I have asked at my local dealership and even called Volkswagen Customer Service no one could answer this question for me. Thanks Nathan
