    You will still need the I-pod dongle that is available via the parts department :thumb:

    Should just connect automatically.  Without the new blue and me adaptor though it will only play tunes downloaded in mp3 format.  If you only have other formats stored on your ipod you need to buy the adaptor, costs about £70 and you also need to download the newest version of Blue and Me into your car (V5.4 i think) for this to work.

    Does your iphone/ipod charge when it's plugged in?
    Should it charge?
    Mine doesnt, and when using the sat nav (on the phone), it runs the battery down within a couple of hours. Surely this isn't right? ???

    What site do you download the new Blue and Me versions from?

    Have you had the Blue&Me updated applied?  You've got the iPod dongle, too?
