For the 4G (iPod photo, iPod w/Color Screen) and 5G (iPod Video) models, you can use a commonly-available camcorder video cable. The left cable is correct, but you have to swap the right cable and the video cable for it to work correctly. See the attached pics where I use a Radio Shack camcorder cable to output video from my 5G iPod to the car. Note the cable order in the pic without the RCA plugs in use and look at the order with them plugged in to see how to attach the plugs to get the audio and video to play correctly.
this worked with my 5G ipod...thanks for the useful info! kinda weird how you have to switch the red and yellow connector though...i wonder why that is.

Spent an hour at The Source (formerly known as Radio Shack) on Saturday running in and out of the store to find the proper cables to get video for my non-NAVI G37S. None of them worked. I have an Ipod Nano 3rd Generation (8GB) and we tried a a few unsuccessful set-ups. The composite video cable and the cable that goes through the headphone jack. I had the screen on AUX and I even took the advice on here of switching the red and yellow cables (leaving middle white cable in place) and got some serious stereo static feeback. The best I could do was hear the podcast - but I got no video...

make sure that the settings on the ipod are set to either tv on or ask....not too sure about PAL or NTSC. both worked for me.

Where is the "TV on" in "settings" do you mean have a check mark beside "movies, tv shows, podcasts" under "main menu" in "settings"?

I am simply using ipod A/V cables. I tried the one that connects from the headphone jack with the white/yellow/red cables. And I tried the other one that connects out of the bottom port (firewire/usb) with the white/yellow/red cables.

If you guys want a cheap alternative to the official aux iphone cord that works, and even has a usb that allows you to plug ur cig lighter in to charge your iphone here is a really good reliable site that has free shipping, and i think it's under $10

Neither worked for me. I'm guessing because I have a 3rd gen ipod nano.
