Auxillary USB jack and IPOD Classic
« on: November 9, 2012, 08:08:41 AM »

I ahve had my truck since June, and this is the first time I have tried this.

I have an old Ipod Classic (20GB) and finally pulled it out of storage to use in my truck.  Got it to full charge in my house and went to use it in my truck

I get the message connecting and then that goes away right away.  Afer that I cant connect to it using the Srce button.  Picks everything else, cd, am, fm and XM radio, but no MP3 player.

Anyone else have this issue?  I was looking forward to using this in my truck, but thought it was basically plug it in and it works

Anything I might be missing?  Thanks

I just noticed exact same behaviour with a "non apple" device. In your case I would suggest check the cable. Sometimes the cable makes that happen.

Well I tried something and while still not working getting a different error.  I fully charged the Ipod at home.  I know the battery is going on it, and I know the USB port in the truck has a different voltage then a charger I use at home.

Thsi time with a full charge it actually saw it and connected, but now says USB device not recognized.

Really?  Well thats crappy, its older sure but still holds tons of songs.  Maybe I will just get a big usb drive and put it in there.  Only thing the IPOD would do double duty in the summer so I can use it in my trailer to.

Goody, mine definitly isnt that, old 20GB so I think 3rd generation.  Guess that means I will have to figure something else out for MP3's

Anyone here just use a USB stick for MP3's.  Is the way it works the same as an Ipod, sicne really an ipod classic is just a mini hard drive.

Ive been debating about getting a portable USB drive, they are cheao now, and the console allows for the room.

IS there  a size limit with the USB port.  Id really like to get my 10,000 songs into my truck

I am experiencing similar problems with my Iphone 3GS. When I attach the cable it recognizes the phone and plays just fine,
after a certain amount of time, it varies, it will stop playing and will not respond to any menu commands. If I unplug the cable
then reattach it, it resumes exactly at the song it was playing when it stopped. Intermittently when reattaching the cable it will display
a message saying "incompatible usb device". Tried 3 different cable's.

Looks like Chevy may have to take some advice from Ford with this sort of stuff.  We have a Ford Taurus X with Sync, which is light years ahead of the Avy set up.  Never had an issue with thr system or using older models of Ipods.  This is the system where it has voice commands.

In comparison, the Chevy one with manual controls, etc is a very simple setup, yet it seems they cant get it right.
