|August 18, 2006||Pioneer's Second Generation iPod Interface||
Brian from Highland Heights, OH
I recently purchased Pioneer's second generation iPod interface and i am ultimately satisfied with it.
My previous setup included the Pioneer Auxiliary input where you controlled the iPod directly.
There are definitely major differences between the two configurations.
The iPod interface allows you to control your iPod right through your pioneer head unit, but when scrolling through tracks or artists, it lags and takes a few seconds to keep up with your scrolling. the screen on my pioneer headunit is only big enough to display 3 lines of data, so i have to scroll through 6000+ songs 3 at a time.
It does come with the convienient shuffle mode, where you can shuffle through songs or albums, it will play a random album in order, then go to another random album.
In my opinion, this unit is best utilized with the headunit's remote control, so you can keep your eyes relatively on the road.
it comes with a decent supply of wires and the cord connecting the iPod to hide it pretty much anywhere in the dash.
At less than $50.00 i felt it was definitely worth it to take advantage of my headunit's full iPod potential.
the unit comes with color coded power and ground wires, the IP Bus connector, double sided tape, and the white cable to connect to the iPod. the install is pretty much a no-brainer, you just need to figure out where to mount it.
