If all you want to do is hide your iPod away why not just open the not so secret compartment under the stereo run the USB up into that and hey presto no iPod in sight or wires to run round your footwell not sure if USB is permanently live so don't know if you could leave it there

Ahhh Sambooka you beat me too it, was just going to suggest exactly the same thing. And regarding the USB port,,,,, some of the titanium models didn't even come with them fitted as standard, so I guess its hit and miss. I however think they are FANTASTIC. I don't use anything I'poddy, but also HATE HATE HATE having to have a million CD's clogging up my glove box, when I can just use a tiny weeny memory stick and have all the music I will ever need on it  :) , I'd have bought my car just because of this lol. Loving my switch from focus titanium to fiesta titanium loads at the minute. Hope it continues  :D

Also thinking about it providing your software is up to date you don't need one of fords extorsionate y cables as it will work perfectly just using the USB 1 cable less to hide aswell

I lift the gear surround up, tuck my pod and cables to the left of the shifter, close the hatch and hey presto! Nae cables to be seen! And more importantly- NO ONE CAN CHANGE THE SONG!! The good thing about the USB controls is none of these vauxhall drivers can figure it out !!

Vauxhall owners are still trying to figure out the combustion engine and how their car moves without a horse pulling it :P

I have played around and I am going to put it in the glovebox it fits nicest in there and the wires seem to fit tidier that way around also

I use my iPhone with aux.. And it nearly always ends up in the centre cup holders lol

When I finally return to the uk I'm gonna pull one of these appart and wire it into the steering wheel controls.

If it works it'll finally give us non-USBers steering wheel control of the iPod without the costly bt&usb upgrade!

Hi Sweeney, good luck getting that to work.
If it doesn't you could try something like the parrot hands free kits.

Mine did, as it replaced the multi disc player. So you might have to rely on the parrots controls.

I haven't opened up the centre console storage yet, as I haven't thought of anything to put in there, but how easy/difficult is it to get the wires up there

Does anyone know if the usb port is active when the engine is switched off, reason for asking, can you keep your iPod plugged in all the time or does it need to be removed when engine off to avoid wearing the cars battery unnecessarily?
