    iPod Connection for '07-550

    I have seen the '07- 550 with a stereo plug looking iPod Connection behind the central console (towards the back seat). How does an iPod attaches with it and how does it plays? Also where does the power connection comes in at thi slocation to rechanrge this unit? Has anyone done an install for this?

    Any help in this matter to hook up the iPod will be highly appreciated

    Thanks

    It's not an iPod connector; the iPod interface connects to the MOST bus and the connector is in the glove box.

    What you are describing is the auxiliary input; you can use any device by connecting it with a 3.5 mm cable.

    so is it available for 07-550 yet?

    I have seen a whole bunch of press etc on the new interface for iPod in Roundel as well as Bimmer mags in last month or two. When will that interface be available as a standard item for BMWs or will it always be a dealer installed option? Where would iPod be connected..In the glove box ?

    Thanks

    Re: iPod Connection for '07-550

    This is an auxillary port that will allow you to use a 2.5mm cable to connect any device that has a similar port (headphone port) on it. You can then select the auxillary setting from your car stereo and you will hear the device output. This is not the same as the mp3 (ipod) adapter that the dealer installs. That adapter allows you to use the car controls to change songs and adjust volume. With the auxillary port, you have to make song changes using the device.

    You can get a connection cable at RadioShack for $10.

    Prior post should have read 3.5mm connector, not 2.5 mm.
