Question:

I'm one of the few people in the western world who's never owned an iPod. (I like smaller, flash drive type MP3 players for working out)
My bro, recently got a 2nd gen 16G iTouch and before I do the "\/!d3O [email protected]<", I'd like to know for sure if it will show the video on screen. We've tried the older model iPod classic (worked) and a nano (IDK what gen) (didn't work)

Just got the car tonight and I tried using my old 30gig ipod video with connector and it worked great!

Now I'm thinking I'd also like to be able to use my iphone 3g to able to use Pandora and AOL Radio, etc. I know the ipod dock in the car wont work with the 3g, but I'd ideally like to be able to both charge the phone and play audio and/or video from the iphone.

I already have a cheap 12v charger that works with the iphone 3g, so that means the bottom dock is used. I also found this one amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Maxell-3-5-mm-...8447298&sr=8-1

I figure with this I can send the A/V to the stereo/nav screen, while still charging the 3G, and listen to Pandora, etc.

Anyone know if this will work?

iPod nano 4th gen charging issue

I just bought a iPod nano 4th gen and the cable that came with my g37 does not charge the iPod. Anyone experience this and hopefully come up with a solution?

Update: Found the answer in another thread.

The iPod Touch (not "iTouch") is currently in it's second generation, and like the iPhone 3G and the iPod Nano 4G, it does not support 12V charging (a.k.a. "Firewire charging"), only 5V charging (a.k.a. USB charging).

The charger that you think is 12V and works with your iPhone 3G is either not 12V or you don't have an iPhone 3G. The iPhone 3G does not support 12V "Firewire charging", only 5V "USB charging". Additionally, it does not support video through the 3.5MM audio-out port.

The only way to output video from the iPhone 3G (and current-generation iPods, like the iPod Touch 2G) is by the use of the Apple Composite AV Cable, the Apple Component AV Cable, or third-party knock-offs such as from Meritline, or DealExtreme.The limitation is due to Apple requiring an "authentication chip" in the cable to allow video output on their newer devices. Go figure.

I have read most if not all the iphone and video cable thread. Got a bit confuse, it sounds like the non apple composite cable solution won't work for iphone, but it works for ipod? If yes, anyone knows why and how to make it work?

Hi guys,
I have a new I phone 3GS.. I bought the red, white and yellow RCA connectors with the bottom port input.. (where the I phone is charged...

So I connect the 3 RCA inputs with the center console rca's. I connected that with the bottom port where it's usually charged by and I press the aux button... Nothing happens, I don't hear the music... Another question if my RCA set up did work, I would be a able to drive and hear music like a regular iPod right? I have the g37s without the premium package... Thanks for your help

FYI, the Meritline and Dealextreme cables won't work if you have firmware 3.0. Unless there's some new cable out that I don't know about.

Man some of you guys really need to go back and read what the OP said. I have the iPhone 3GS and everything works fine. One thing not discussed is the correct TV Out setting on the iPod.

First and foremost, remember to put the emergency brake ON and leave the car completely stopped. If one of those conditions is not met, you will have no video. Audio on mine works when the car is in motion through the Aux input, however no video until the car has stopped and the emergency brake is on.

Second, if you are seeing black and white video, it may be a cable, but more commonly, your TV Out setting is set to PAL instead of NTSC. This is critical. I made that mistake.

I am using the apple composite AV cable. I also have the scosche adapter for my cars iPod integration cable. No hum when im using video, however, there is a high pitched hum when playing audio off the cars integrated iPod cable. Just an FYI. If you are having trouble Read the original post for detail!

yes and no. depends on the ipod. if it does not charge scorch (sp some one will help me with that) makes an adapter that will allow it to charge.
