147 Head Unit iPod Connector
Having read various posts on this issue of connecting an iPod to the standard head unit, I'm seeking some advice.
My '05 Lusso didn't come with a CD Changer just what I assume is a standard single CD tuner head unit. I have purchased an Alfa iPod interface part no. 50903266 and connected it to the CD Changer port at rear of head unit. It powers and charges the iPod no problem and I know the iPod to be compatible, however the head unit does not recognise the iPod or CD Changer port.
I borrowed a head unit from a mate who has an '04 147 Lusso with a CD Changer in his boot and it worked fine allowing me to access the CD Changer and thus iPod. In fact even without the connection being made at rear of unit, his head unit scrolls through several options via the SRC button, such as fm1, fm2, fm3, LW, MW, CD Changer, CD, whereas my unit only displays Tuner and CD!
Is my head unit bust or is there something that needs configuring to bring up the greater range of options?
Any advice appreciated.
