That menu does not show the individual CD player as an option. It shows FM, AM, SAT, CD (sub menues MP3 1 through MP3 6 all of which are iPod related).

I am scheduled to have the iPod installed tomorrow. I can certainly live without the silly CD changer, but not my in dash player.

Both in dash CD /DVD players work fine.

CD has the following sub menus

DVD - Nav disc but plays MP3s too
CD - in dash CD works fine
CD1 - iPOD Playlists
CD2 - iPOD Artist
CD3 - iPOD Album
CD4 - iPOD Genre
CD5 - iPOD PodCasts
CD6 - iPOD All music
