I have been playing around with where to place an iPod in my car that is tucked away so I can use it from my driving controls, my latest position is in the cubby hole by the bonnet handle. and have traced the wires around the interior to the USB ports

It needs some tidying up etc (plus the car needs cleaning) I dont want to put it all in until I am 100% happy with is position.

 

Where do you guys put yours?

Sorry don't know about that, maybe because mine is a newer model. Doesn't yours have a USB? I have read on here somewhere that there is a hidden one behind the glove box.

I use the usb, I have a long Y lead connected and have fed that through and around the footwell, the steering wheel controls work perfectly with it, just trying to work out the best place to put the iPod without it being seen from the outside, but easily accessible for when i want to update tunes.

In the modification forum there's a thread called Retro-Fit Usb.....It Works!! which has all the details. Will cost you a lot in parts (£200-£300) and the car needs to be reprogrammed using specialist kit.
