Default iPod integration!!

hi.

wanted to fill in folks on my new project. today i'm getting the Dension IceLink:Plus for my '05 accord (from logjam electronics www.logjamelectronics.com). it will replace the XM on my factory stereo, and has a ton of features:

ipod control from the head unit (and sterring wheel controls!) including playlist selection, track advance/rewind
automatically play/pause when iPod input is selected
charges iPod (for 20mins after car is shut off too!)
text display of track information on the factory stereo (for XM-enabled, which mine is)

a downside for some is, you have to disconnect XM...i don't subscribe anyway, so no problem there...

anyway, it will be arriving in an hour or so, and i'm doing the install myself (with the help of http://distantcreations.com/accordipod/). if this works as advertised, i'd recommend it to everyone. updates to follow...

install took 20 minutes. text display on the radio isn't compatible with my accord, but everything else works great. sound quality is super.

This is a good thread.

I don't know about the '98 but I know that a lot of the newer stock radios have a simple AUX in in the back of the head unit and there are iPod cables you can get that plug right into them by an aftermarket company.

I wish there was an easy way of integrating an iPod into an 03 - 06 Accord. I have been looking for an easy way but have not found it. I'll have a look at the pics. In Canada we don't have XM radio so I'm not sure if this will work..... I have the EX V6 Coupe.

gummi_67 and ha007

you should have a cd changer port anyway. check the application chart for various products. most of the cables can be found at logjamelectronics.com

now that it's installed, it's just a wire coming out from under the console next to the carpet. it ends in an iPod plug, which i have sitting in a cupholder thingy. for install pics, see the above link (2nd link in 1st post). the only difference in mine is that i just pulled the wire out at the carpet, just behind the shifter, instead of hiding the iPod in the console. i like to see what's playing . aw, hell...i'm going out to the car to take a camera phone shot...it's probably going to suck though

no, the icelink plugs into the same port as the XM antenna.


(so i had to disconnect the XM to install)

-s

edit: i read your thread on v6performance.net...i see your problem...i don't have that problem cause i ain't payin' no $13 a month for crappy XM service. i used the 3 free months when i got the car, and was not impressed. my ipod has 9000 songs and is well organized, so it's all i use.
