I think I have been to Rama twice ... maybe three times. We usually go to Kempenfest every other year in Barrie. Other than that I get north much.

If you are gettign the RDS info in FM mode than I think you should be good in iPod mode.

Since your HU can control the iPod, then that confirms that the k-bus is connected since the same bus is used for messaging in both directions.

Tomorrow if you can check the switches & unplug the 3-pin connector & reconnect, HOPEFULLY that will clear your issues.

Another iPod would be my next test. Actually it could be an issue with the iPod cable. Different wires are used for control & text in that interface. Replug the iPod cable into the PA12 & check teh iPod connector for damage/corrosion.

If not, regardless of where you bought it, I beleive USA-Spec will still warantee it.

Sleep time ... please post how it goes.
