Hi,
have ordered my new i10 1.2 style in oyster grey. Looking forward to it arriving - got the 2000 scrappage allowance which makes this car a huge bargain. A couple of queries though;

Apparently i will need some form of connector between the Aux input on the dash and my ipod. Anyone know what i should ask for?

Secondly, living in Upminster, Essex, i was wondering if anyone knows of a decent independent Hyundai service agent? Hyundai servicing seems expensive and i'd like to consider non main dealer options using Hyundai parts.

Thanks a lot.

Wicked, I just ordered a Stone Black Style on scrappage (2,250 discount from my local dealer).

The connector is a standard 3.5mm to 3.5mm jack.

As for servicing, the local dealer prices dont seem to bad so I will probally just use them.

Good work, JW. I got the metallic paint for a discount which makes my total discount 2,250. Happy with that. Am considering a fixed price deal up front for the servicing but it still seems a little steep. Good luck.

You'll get better sound from the iPod if you use a connector which plugs into the port on the bottom, then goes to the stereo jack plug. I got one off eBay for a few quid.

Hi TJ, could you please define "better"? Louder or a more detailed sound? Have you tried both types of cables to determine this? Im not saying that youre wrong or anything, Im just interested in why Apple only suggests the stereo jack plug, and if your cable on Ebay is better Ill gladly pay and thank you for the advice.
I have to admit that Im not that good at handling the Ipod, just recently realized that it has an equalizer...

Yes, I have tried both connectors. The jack plug gives a sort of "muddy" sound output. The line-out seems much clearer and the volume output is fixed - the volume control on the iPod makes no difference.

I leave the equalizer flat on mine, and use the i10 controls to get the tone I prefer.

Hope this helps

Thumbs up

Where do you guys put your ipod.

I want to secure mine so it does not rattle about, but dont really want a dashboard mount either.

Can you get the aux cable into the back of the glove box so it can sit in there and hold it secure with some velcro?

Thanks TJ! Is this the cable from Ebay? Seems really hard to find such cable otherwise. I would have preferred the jack plug to be a 90 degree angle to the dashboard input, that is what I use today, since the cable then follows the panel way down and dont stick straight out of the dashboard.

@Greenoak, today I use a shortened black cable with 90 degree angle, leaving the Ipod in the small "box" below the stereo. I tried this homemade thing http://www.hyundai-forums.com/t32779-cheap...nection-diy.htm for a while, but it didnt work well, lost connection all the time...the idea was to be able to handle the Ipod without damaging the dashboard...at least I tried..../Lars

I have a Ipod Nano which I use with regular aux type cable.. It had been quite good with orginal speakers.
After changing speakers , I realised that it really sucks.. I connected my laptop , and suprised how the Ipod can play the music in that much bad quality :/ Actually haven't tried the first gen. Ipod on my car but , my cellular phone's aux plug-in works better and better than my sweet Nano :/

@ TJ

If something will change with my Ipod , could you please share a picture of cable with me . I really would like to try it..

Lars has already posted a picture of the exact same one I got from eBay. Pity it doesn't have the 90 degree plug, but it does the job.

I put my iPod in the recess under the radio - we keep a duster in there anyway, so it doesn't slide around too much. I did try using a phone holder in the air vent and that works OK too.
