i have the aux ipod wire , but i want to know if can control it from my ipod and not the the car's deck ? anybody have a idea ?
my question is, do the names of the songs come up on the stereo display when you use the actual cord for the car, i heard that it didn't display the song names, or it came up as some kind of jumbled name... i'm just using a regular auxiliary wire because i've been undecided on buying the cord for that reason. aaaand can i access my playlists and such through the stereo with the cord? :/
with usb aux wire the name of the songs do appera on the stereo.
Yes. The OEM Kia auxillary cable will display the artist and song when connected to your iPod.

Noodile says that if it's jailbroken you can, I'm not familiar with that method though. I have found that if you plug the connection into the iPod, let it connect to the vehicle, and then barely unplug it (keep it plugged in but have the connection a little loose, if that makes sense), you will be able to control using the iPod directly but you will not be able to use the stereo deck or steering wheel controls. It will also not display the artist and song on the stereo display.
thanks ill try that
cool, thanks! but can you access playlists as well?
yes u can !
