Newbie iPod connectivity

Post by Lastofthetimelordz » Thu Apr 22, 2021 1:21 pm

Hi guys looking to change my motor in the next couple of months currently driving Seat Ateca SE Tech, I'm a bit old school and love my classic iPod. Any one shed some light on using iPod with the Karoq with the newer USB-C inputs. Primarily will it work?
Thanks in advance

I haven't heard of anyone getting one working over USB. VW used to sell a special lead to link an iPod to a multipin socket in Golfs etc, But I think cars with USB ports would need extra software to get them to work. So my iPod sits at home coupled to my hi-fi amp and I've copied my iTunes library onto a 128GB USB-C memory stick. It's a dual end USB-C and USB-A device so will connect to both my PC and the car, and is small enough to fit under the sliding cover to the phonebox in my Karoq.

The MIB3 Amundsen in my car will let you store artists, albums or even genres as favourites for ease of access... and the only thing I miss from the iPod is the Genius shuffle which offers some fascinating links across your music library. :)

Cheers Chris I suspected it wouldn't work after trawling the internet
