    i-pod help?

    Ive just brought myself a 4gig ipod nano, and want to connect it to my alpine car cd player. What would I need to do this? Any links to where I will need to buy the bits from?

    Also would I be able to control it through my ipod?

    Cheers

    Hello mate i just installed my ipod adapter to my kenwood unit, i got mine from caraudiosecurity.com there quite cheap and fast delivery. you have to control the songs from your head unit the ipod will only display your alpine logo.

    What alpine headunti do you have?

    If it has AI-NET then a KCA-420i is what you need, this will give you total control of the ipod through your headunti and charge the ipod aswell

    If it is that headunti it doesn't look like it will be compatiable with the lead I suggested and it only looks liek the "RM" has a aux input so you could at least get the sound into the headunti

    I'd be looking at one of the ipod ready alpine headunits myself

    How about this http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/pro...s_id/3898.html
