For VW Golf iPod dock extension
on 26 June 2011
I ordered the cable to extend the iPod dock in the armrest of my 2008 VW Golf and it works perfectly.
I've used both my iPod Touch 1st Gen and iPhone 4 and both work the same.
I wanted something that made it easier to get to the iPod to change the album - the VW iPod connector in the armrest is a small slot that you push the iPod into and unless you have the top of the range head unit with the VW MDI connection, you can't control the iPod remotely (other than next / prev track)
The iPod still says "Accessory Connected" and won't allow me to change albums unless I disconnect it, make my choice, then re-connect it, but this is not a fault of the cable - more a bug of the iPod software.
Once on the album or playlist I want, I can use the head unit (RCD 300) to change track.
I hope this is of help to other VW owners looking for a similar fix!
