Connecting an ipod to an aux input

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys. Im new to this forum and im just about to pick my car up from the garage. THe car im going to pick up is a 55 reg focus zetec. My question is that the cd player in the car has an aux input. I know i can buy a wire to connect the ipod to and play through my cd player. The question is that if i got one of these wires couls i control the ipod through the remote on the steering wheel and would the title and track show in the display of the cd player. What functionality would i have. Could i browse through playlists and songs etc. If there is a wire that can do this do you have any recommendations?

Thanks for your help.

Sorry to dissapoint you fella but the aux port is for sound only (and that can be hit and miss due to the poor build quality of the socket).

If you want ipod control with track display buy a new Ford with USB port or ditch the Ford headunit for a decent after-market one.

It is Possible though

you need the Focus Bluetooth unit with USB then the Mondeo cable assembly the mondeo bezel and USB socket and microphone you may or may not need an extra wiring harness for radio £20 ish

total cost is around the £190

If you are intrested My mate at Ford will supply the parts and i can describe how to YOU get the USB socket which allows control and display of Ipod or USB stick with MP3s on and as a bonus you also get Hands free Bluetooth and a voice control of compatable items

I will pass you to my mate trevor who will tell you what is needed and the cost

It is well worth it I use I pod classic 160 gb that is Full about 3 months worth of none stop mp3s lol
