Does anyone successfully use their iPod through the radio?

What did you use?

Should I just buy a replacement radio with a MP3 jack? I'd rather not go down that route because I rather like the Beta radio :)

I was looking at a fitting a CD thingy under the passenger seat like I did with my last T4, but then had the bright idea of using my iPod I:

Got a long trip to Ireland coming up in April and don't much fancy listening to the Radio all the way.

I have got 2 similar bits of kit. One in the T4 and one in the Golf. Both work really well. Check that the box will charge newer pods. The one in the van wont charge 2nd gen itouch / ipod but will play everything.

Just checked out the ebay link as am also interested in using my ipod in my Velle. However, it says it's for 98 onwards models. Anyone know of one for pre 98 i.e a 96 Velle ?

Hi Wake215

I've just had a look at this web site http://www.carputer-shop.co.uk/ipod-digital-interface-version-1-p-1

There's a vehicle application link to a PDF on that page, at the bottom of the PDF there's a link to email for more info.

If you get stuck I have a few 98 onwards Beta radio's I could sell.
