Ipod question

I have a 4 year old Ipod, which worked perfectly on my 2008 535xi. Just picked up a 2011 X5 and it does not recognize the Ipod, just charges. Is there any way to get it working?

Thanks for the help.

Same issue here. 2011 X5d just picked up last week. Use the "Y" cable from the 535xi or upgrade your iPod. My new iPod touch works fine just on the Apple USB cable.

thanks, are you saying that the Y cable from 535 is different from the one on a new X5?

You need the "Y" cable for an older iPod. Plug it into the accessory (single prong) outlet only (don't use USB connection). My iPhone and iPad work just fine via USB connection. Serarch amazon.com for best price on Y cable.

Right, I have the Y cable and can get the audio through. I was trying to get the interface to work with Idrive just like it did on the 535. I guess the only way is to update the Ipod.

Do you have the iPod option? I believe you can get the AUX input without the iPod
