Will there be an official iPod adapter, no. I believe there's a headphone jack though.

isn't there a usb port to plug your ipod into? I don't think there is a headphone plugin... its illegal to drive with headphones on.

The auxillary jack uses the same size jack as a headphone jack, although thats not what its for. Its just to connect any random mp3 player and use the speakers in your car to play music.

I don't understand what the usb port is for if there is no hardrive in the car unless its purpose is to charge your electronics which is equally as appreciated.


I have an off topic question. Does the IOM trim package include the orange stitching or is it just the panels on the door and in the dash?

from what i understand, the USB port allows MP3 players to use their computer cables to plug into the car & use the steering wheel buttons to control the device. that comes in the 2LT/2SS and 1LT if you get the Convenience & Connectivity package. all trims have an auxiliary input where you can connect the headphone output of any device to the car & listen to it through the radio. you just can't use the steering wheel controls with this connection

It is just a MIDI jack... same thing as you have on your iPod... you get a dual ended cable (usually purchasable through your dealer) I bought mine at Radioshack for 1.99.... All you do is plug one into the MP3 player and one into the jack... then change the radio to Aux input.

It doesnt work like Sync its basic...

uh... this is a MIDI cable


i think you're talking about a normal 1/8" stereo cable


this lets you just tap into the sound system, using the player's controls.


if you have the C&C package or a 2LT or 2SS, you can use the normal iPod cable (or equivalent USB cable for your device) to use the car's controls with the device.

You can do that.....OR

You can plug your Mp3 player into the USB jack (assuming you opt for it). Then the radio taps into the player, and you can now close the center console, and control all your songs, etc from the radio contros.

I don't know exactly how sync works...but this is far from 'basic'.

Wrong, hence why all Zunes crashed at new years. Fail software from a fail company.

All Zunes didnt crash, only the very first model of Zune... And it was because there was a framework issue. the Zune 2.0's are good to go. they run on .Net which is solid as a rock.

And Sync basically is a computer running a mobil version of Windows with Bluetooth capabilities.

Very cool stuff...

It wasnt even the early zunes that crashed. Only the 30gb zunes were the ones with the problems. No other zune had any problems. Now Back on topic...

The zune market place offers unlimited downloads for like 15 bucks a month with good quality music but ipod on the other hand you have to buy every friggin song on the ipod market place or you could download from limewire but most songs from limewire are crappy quality.

I also have to say after purchasing 4 iPods..... NEVER AGAIN!!! EVER!!!!

Also, isnt the USB slot to plug in your flash drives with mp3 muzac on it? Better be!!!! I will be sooooooo dissapointed if not.
I dont want to use CDs in the car, so cumbersome, when I can put 4,000 songs on a 16GB USB drive. That should do for a long drive dont ya think?

PS: Dont tell me when you plug in an Ipod in the USB slot of the car its gonna say "Install iTunes before proceeding" LOL!!

No it should just say something like connected to Camaro or Chevrolet or something. It would be sweet if a pic of a camaro comes up.



And why all the hate on iPods i have a first gen nano and still use the thing every day in my car love it and iTunes is so much better then WMP I installed windows 7 on my comp. and had to put all the songs back on iTunes and wmp it took iTunes prob about 30 min to add all the songs so then i put them on wmp I started around 1am and just let it go went to it the next day at 1pm and was still loading the songs that bs
