iPOD direct connect kit 82209617 experiences

Anyone out there have any experiences with the iPOD interface kit 82209617? This is not the FM bounded kit but the one that connects to the CAN-B and interfaces with the steering wheel controls.

I am specifically wondering if the iPOD functions also display to the radio's display.

Thanks

Jay

Re: iPOD direct connect kit 82209617 experiences

I just had this system (82209617AB) installed the other day. It seems to work all right, though it's a little awkward to use. I'm not sure which iPod functions you are talking about, but I'll try to describe how it works so that you can decide if it's right for you. I have the larger screen system (the manual calles it REC) with NAV and all that.

First off, the iPod plugs into a cable that's hidden in the glove box. The iPod shuts off a few minutes after the car is shut off, and it comes on again when you start it up. If you switch to another mode (Radio, CD, Sat, Phone, etc) or turn off the car then the iPod pauses and waits for you. If you're an audiobook person that takes long trips, this is excellent.

Operation of the iPod from the main console and steering wheel is, to me, awkward but workable. If you were hoping that your iPod screen will show up in some form on your console, then you're out of luck. What you see is what looks like Sat channels. It's hard to describe, but channel 1 would be the first item in the list you are looking at, channel 2 would be the second, etc... I don't remember exactly how it goes now, but the first list lets you choose from artists, playlists, genre, etc. Once you find the channel you want (lets say Playlists), just wait a few seconds and the unit reads in the next set of items. Then you start again at channel 1 in Playlists. It's sorted alphabetically for convenience. So, once you go to the list you want (for me, My Top Rated is channel 20), then you wait a few seconds for the list to be loaded and you can scroll through the list or just start at the beginning.

If your list of songs (or playlists) is more than 100 items long, you have to go to channel 101 to advance to the next 100 tracks. 102 goes back 100 tracks.

There are also other channels that have been assigned functions to help in navigation through your iPod. Channels 130-157 let you jump to tracks that begin with a-z or number or certain symbols. Channel 200 turns shuffle on and off. Channel 204 lets you browse composers. 205 for audiobooks. 208 for albums. And more.

All of what I described above can be accessed using the steering wheel controls as well as the controls on the radio. Also, you can skip to the next and previous tracks with the steering wheel controls while music is playing, as you would expect.

From the console, if you press the PTY button twice you get a menu that will put you in the different lists quicker.

The iPod actually runs through the Sat channel on the radio, so don't get confused there. To switch between iPod and Satelite, it's a matter of hitting the Mode button a few times: CD > SAT > VES > CD > iPod (SAT) > VES.

Your Satelite radio presets will disappear each time you use your iPod, so it that's important to you then you will be bummed.

Hopefully I was able to describe how it functions clearly enough. It's kind of hard to imagine iPod navigation in a radio tuning idiom, but while it's a little awkward it still works.

Re: iPOD direct connect kit 82209617 experiences

Thanks "B!!!" I have been waiting for someone to write up details about that kit. I wasn't hoping for the actual iPod screen to display on the radio, just the track info and from what you described, that is exactly what I was expecting it to do. Strange that you loose the sat radio presets each time you use the iPod, but I don't really use those anyway. I am going to definitely get one of these then (82209617AB).

You do have a "REC" nav unit correct? (It has "REC" written small letters in between the "Mute" button and "Tune" dial).

Thanks again for the update.

Yes, it's a REC unit. I had a chance to use it more over the weekend, and it works pretty good.

Re: iPOD direct connect kit 82209617 experiences

For you guys that have this kit, was it pretty easy to install yourself, or would it be worth it to have the dealer do it?

Also, where is everyone keeping their i-pod? Is it pretty much stuck in the glove box? I think I'd like to have it in my center console.

Re: iPOD direct connect kit 82209617 experiences

I installed the IPod kit a few months ago. It works ok, but as stated earlier, it's very awkward. It sits in the glove box, and it takes what seems like forever for the system to find it's way through the ipod libraries. I like that it displays the tracks, but at this point, i'm considering using the other adapter on the system (the 1/8th" adapter, not the ipod adapter) getting the 1/8" cable and running it from the ipod itself through the headphone jack....

Re: iPOD direct connect kit 82209617 experiences

I had the dealer install it because I don't really trust myself to be messing with the stuff behind the dashboard, but I did see the included instructions and it did look fairly straightforward. Pretty much plug and play. I don't know for sure that the cable will stretch all the way to the center console, but I did see a picture on another forum where it did. Mine is in the glovebox and I'm okay with it since I don't use it outside of my car very often.

Re: iPOD direct connect kit 82209617 experiences

I have this kit installed and every time I shut the vehicle off, change playlists, or even go to the next 100 songs, the unit forgets it is in shuffle mode and I have to turn shuffle back on. Is anyone else having this problem or is it just my unit acting funny?

Nope, mine forgets it's in shuffle mode too. Definitely irritating, but not that hard to put back in shuffle mode.
