Is that also a way around the indexing?

Are there any dealerships in the San Francisco south bay area (San Jose) that know how to add the PDIM/USB port? And can they hook it up to a leather steering wheel with the audio controls?

Future PDIM Compatibility With More Than iPod?

I was hoping to use an existing Zune or USB Flash Drive, but apparently neither is an option. If the Zune has to index for an hour every time the vehicle starts, its of no use to me.

I read in this FAQ that the PDIM supports iPods much better. Plugged in my daughter's 4th gen 16gb nano and it worked perfectly. No indexing and everything was immediately available. Yay!

Any plans for future firmware to truly support other digital players like the Zune or Sansa the same way it does the iPod - with all the indexing being handled by the player? I really don't want to drink the Apple koolaid.

Thank you for participating in the forum and offering to answer questions like this.

There's no plans to get past the 2500 song limit with the current PDIM module. Apparently that will require new hardware. Your Zune shouldn't take that long to index, especially not each time. The first index will be longer but once it's done that it should only take a couple minutes, max. If you connect another device it will lose the previous index entirely so make sure you're not swapping devices in between.

As far as I'm aware, other devices do not provide an index to the car at all so there's nothing for them to use. It's not out of the question that a future PDIM (software and/or hardware) could have a legit indexer instead of the junk it has now and it would resolve the problems (including the 2500 song limit) but it would still be up to the PDIM to handle the index. Fingers crossed. Hopefully sooner than later.

What audio devices does my car support?
All models come with the Auxiliary input. This allows you to plug in any music playing device that can connect to a pair of normal headphones. You’ll likely just need a male-male 1/8th inch stereo cable.
is that true tht all model come with aux input? I have a ls n I'm assuming that the Jack would be in the armrest compartment. In mine there's just a small cover there with no input Jack. Anyways i'm just wondering how much will it run me if I want yo add aux input Jack to the ls. The stereo does have an aux button.

If you are talking about a stereo input jack, yes the LS does have one. If you are talking about a USB input jack, No the LS doesn't have one, but it can be added.

Just curious... my phone (HTC HD2) easily paired with the car's bluetooth system allowing me to do the hands free thing... here is the problem, when the phone rings, if I try to answer it using the menu/select knob I can't. I also cannot answer the phone using the button on the steering wheel.... I can answer the phone if I actually answer the call via the phone BUT it continues to ring through the car's bluetooth system even when the connection has been made and I am holding a conversation. I can only end the call using the button on the mirror..... is that weird or what?

How do you get it to play "playlists" on an ipod touch??? when ever I hook it up, it starts with the very first song on my library, and I dont have an option to choose play lists (also it wont let me pick music when I have it plugged in) I have to do it all from the head unit in the car, and I didnt see a way to go through playlists?

Something very strange happened where the forum software converted some of my regular " marks to a similar but different ascii character. Very odd.

I'm having a problem with my iphone 3g/bluetooth in my Camaro. When I receive or make a call I can barely hear the other person for first (maybe a minute...........give or take seconds). When I first got my 2 SS this problem did not exist. Very aggravating straining to hear. When you can start to hear the conversation the level gets loud. I have to turn it down. (It may be because I had to turn up volumn when I first started talking).
Anyone have this problem? Any solutions?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Who is the manufacturer of the head unit? Is it at least possible to hack it in order to receive even frequencies, and not just odd ones?

ok my cars radio is all screwed up when it comes to the radio, usb and/or ipod. some times the ipod/usb disconnects itself and i have to unplug it and plug it back in. or sometimes when changing songs it will change songs but the previous song stays on the screen, or when im looking through my ipod info its all screwy...like if im looking through my different playlist titles it will have 2 playlist names and then a list of songs, or when looking at song titles it will show different artist name and not songs...basically not showing what its supposed to...and for a lil while when i changed songs it would make a sound as if a cd was in there skipping then go to the next song, and also it wouldnt connect with my ipod for a few days even when unplugging it and plugging it back in it still didnt work. i have an ipod touch that i bought about 6 months ago so its new. before that i was using the thumbstick flash memory and the same shit happened...

i heard about this update but i took it to my dealer and they said they updated it but its still doing it...im getting mad and about to tell them to replace my whole radio/multimedia unit!

what should i do? is the latest version CE? should i go there and tell them thats what i want? are they gonna know what im talking about? sometimes it seems i know more about the car then they do because of this website......
