Specs: Windows 7

When connected to car details of the song appears on screen but doesn't play the tune. I have changed connection and tried it in another vehicle without success. Music plays when disconnected from system.

How does the ipod interface with/connect to the car radio(s)?

I have no personal experience here, although I have a (seldom used) ipod. However a brief trawl via google using the string/search term:

connect ipod to car radio by usb

brings up a lot on this issue. These are just two of "many".

https://uk.answers.yahoo.com/questi...

My feeling is that the radios may "not" be compatible as suggested in the second link.

There are references to ipod shuffle too; and they appear to require adapters...

If you repeat my trawl you can have a read of the various responses; as that way you get the full info "first hand" as it were - rather than my summaries.

If/when you resolve it perhaps post back (please) and updates us all; useful for future reference...

My first thought was that it was done via bluetooth?
