All this talk of iPod interfaces has gotten me thinking about modding my A4.
I received a free iPod Mini as part of a promotion (buy a Mac, get a free
iPod) and I am hooked on it like crack-cocaine! Seriously, do *not* get one
unless you want to drive really slowly to work just so you can listen to
more music! :)
Anyway, I am looking for the best way to mount one on the dash. I have seen
the kind that take over the control of your iPod and give you a lame "CD
Changer" like interface. But that takes away most of the functionality of
the iPod; it's best features are shuffle mode, tune rating, lots of
playlists, etc. What I would like is something that charges my iPod and
pumps the music directly through the head unit (no FM transmitters or
cassette adapters please). It should also mount really nicely on the dash or
somewhere convenient so that I, or a passenger, can read the display, change
Does anyone have anything like this? What is your experience with your iPod?
How have you hooked yours up? I'm willing and able to do some light
fabrication and soldering, so it doesn't have to be dummy proof (well, that
might help :). Just looking for some BTDT from the list.
