No worries, matey. Your guide was what convinced me to get the Dension

I love it although for some reason, I have to reset the CN+ (4x setup's) after I start the engine to get the CN+ to recognise it. Works fine as soon as I turn the ignition on but after starting the engine, the Dension disappears from the CDC... weird. Not a big deal though

Did you have to do a firmware upgrade on yours? I can't seem to track one down on the Dension website so if you know where I can find it (if needed) , let me know

Cheers dude!

Mine does something similar, very very occasionally will not recognise the iPod and only an engine restart will sort it. The other niggly thing it does is occasionally try to play track 99 from a play list instead of the last known position and I'll have to disconnect and reconnect the iPod to cure it.

I think the last fault may have something to do with Apple including Smart Playlist on a recent iPod software upgrade - if you have 5 standard playlists on the iPod plus the Smart list the Dension may see them as 6 lists in total and get confused.

I not been able to find any firmware updates either, I can't remember if I update the firmware when I first installed the kit. I did find this tho:

http://support.dension.com/support-c...od_id=2&id=129

I like the "Avoid unnecessary updates. If your system works fine as expected, do not update!" line, very confidence inspiring.

Re: Ipod / Connect Nav+ connection

heard back from bortesi in italy. I got it from there because one of the links sent me that way!

will wait for it to arrive and see whats what.

will keep you posted, he said they install the correct software etc and test it before sending on their show car stilo as he said that there are inconsistencies with the dension kit but that is expected with a stilo isnt it??!!!.... We will see!

Re: Ipod / Connect Nav+ connection

Sounds good! Good luck with it, you'll love being able to use your iPod with the CN+... I know I do! Let us know how you get on with it and whether you need to do any re-booting of the CN+. If you don't then I'd love to get ahold of the firmware that you're using so that I can flash it onto mine! Anyway, good luck!

Re: Ipod / Connect Nav+ connection

right, it arrived BUT in italian style, wih the wrong damn dock cable. after a few days of waiting and a further 40 i got it and i ahve to say, it was worth the wait. NO ISSUES AT ALL!! even via the AUX port my nav+ recognised that there was a CDC connected.

Not failed, turned off, paused, all track names displayed... what can i say

Re: Ipod / Connect Nav+ connection

hi greggers, by all means! talk away! What IPOD do you have? I have asked marco (the italian sales man) if it is possible to have him send me the firmware for the stilo via email. still waiting on it. will get a video on here when i figure out how just to see if mine is a fluke or wether it is possible across the board. Also, what gateway are you using?

Very interested in this too as when I bought my Dension kit the Stilo with CN was on their incompatible list. Hopefully they've sorted things out since I emailed the features that worked and those that didn't.

Re: Ipod / Connect Nav+ connection

Unfortunately, the xcarlink interface came to its end of its life...
After several problems i tried to fix it but got it completely useless.

Since there is no more this interface, i'll look for Loundlink now. Little more expensive but i hope it will last longer...

Re: Ipod / Connect Nav+ connection

Hello,

I've got a doblo with connect nav+, is this the same as the stilo one? it sits on top of the dash in the doblo...

it has a 5" or 7" screen, and is a magneti marelli unit... is there a way of connecting an ipod?

and if so, where do I get one?


thanks in advance

John

Re: Ipod / Connect Nav+ connection

Its very very similar but I would check to be sure.

Dension should be able to tell you.
