I just want something to play the music stored on my ip4, not worried about it doubling up as a handsfree kit for calls.

I bought one of these for the Leon.

Can't fault it really, seperate lead for Ipod/Iphone runs out the back and you can feed it to somewhere sensible, additional USB on the front and built in bluetooth.

I got it from my local Halfords at the web price too.

That's exactly the Alpine I've got in the pug SeanLOL

This kit I talk of, that we have in the Passat, plays music and is a hand free kit, and is all done via Bluetooth. I'll have a word with Helen about it Jon. Might be able to get you a good price. It's not hard to fit either, just plug and playSmile But I'll need to know the make and model of your stereo that in the motor.

Edit: This is what we've got fitted.

Fletch did you get that Alpine? I'm after a new HU to link with my IP4, ideally no more than 200 tbh but if the HU is worth it I'll pay a little more. Don't mind if USB port is front or rear. Should be some bargains in the sales.


I did mate yeah, it was proper pricey, but works great, hid the cable behind the dash. You need to pay even more for phone integration though - requires an additional module. Tried cheaper models with bluetooth built in, but none were as slick at browsing for tracks etc on the move.

Works great with iPhone 4 too.


Found a second hand one for a ton-fifty, just trying to knock the seller down on price but condition looks great so will probs get it Thumbs up

*edit - I've now purchased it Happy

have you considered getting the fm transmiter for the iphone/pod the cost between 10 and 20 quid plug into the bottomand transmit your music at a set frequency all you have to do is tune your radio into it. iv got one built in to my phone (nokia n8) but if i didnt id most probably buy one there cheap and cheerful wireless which is always a bonus and the sound quality is the same as a cd also you can keep your old headunit fitted

Piece of p*ss, hold in jog wheel and twist to move through the alphabet, or just scroll it round like a volume control to move songs.

You tube vid

Shows how the scrolling works (2.40) but don't think he uses the function to skip by letter.

In terms of a cradle for the iP4, are they are all pretty similar? Fitted the new Alpine earlier, got a problem with the earth wire which we need to sort out first but the stereo works Smile
