Ipod connectivity

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

It seems that my S Type will be endowed with a CD changer in the boot.

 

I would prefer to use my iPod for my music.

 

Is there any iPod connectivity please?

Hi Paul,

 

I think there is some kind of ability to use these new fangled gadgets in cars but I don't have an iPod.

 

Having come from the days when having a radio in a car was an optional extra, I am more than happy with a CD interchanger in the boot  --  currently I have Rod Stewart's Great American Songbook, and two Ella Fitzgerald discs.

 

Some members will know how to connect an iPod.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

Hi Paul, do not have S-Type however my XKR came with an from the Arc cassette head unit and CD changer mounted in the Boot. There was not even the option of a usb port for plugging in an iPod.

Therefore, I decided to change the head unit for something more modern playing mp3, wav files etc and a usb socket for the iPod

Yeh, bit of a shock for me too as I always played my music from a USB stick...! Anyway, if you don't want to mess with the current set up get a Parrot kit installed. There is a kit for about £140.00 (MKi9200) which will connect to your phone/download your contacts and stream music etc by bluetooth and also has hard wired connections for ipod, USB and 3.5mm jack. Widely available on Interweb and Halfords also stock a range of Parrott kits too. Obviously need to get it fitted but better option than replacing what's there and you can remove it to use on another car when/if you sell the Jag.

This should give you all everything you could possibly need I would have thought.

Cheers

Shaun

In view of the ridiculous price of an ACM I'll try the Connects 2 device and see if it works first :)

 

ACM would be OEM of course.

Thanks Martin - sorry I changed my previous post before you did the one above.

OK,

 

Connects 2 device doesn't work with the later optical head unit so i've bitten the bullet and bought a CD changer instead. I'll just have to burn my music to CDs.

 

Now, can anybody tell me how to fit the boot mounted CD changer in an S Type please?
