I am going to buy a new car stereo and would like one that allows me to have my 5th gen iPod connected plus Bluetooth for connecting my iPhone (it only has a small amount of music, hence the need for my nice big iPod). Kenwood do a few that seem to fit the bill, including one that bolts straight in to my car and uses the steering wheel controls.
Is there any reason why an older iPod shouldn’t work? The manual shows a 30-pin connector cable as an option. However, the Kenwood website has a handy tool to check for compatible devices, and it says that anything older than iPod touch 5th gen won’t work.
