Thread: Controlling music from iPhone/iPod while connected to a car head unit.

    Default Controlling music from iPhone/iPod while connected to a car head unit.
    Hello,

    I always connect my iPhone to my car deck via a dock connector interface. The (Pioneer) logo comes up, my music plays and all is well. However, I would love to be able to control whats playing from my iPhone, not the deck. Does anyone know a method for doing this?

    My iPhone is jailbroken. I was thinking there might be an app somewhere that removes this 'locked ipod' mode.

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    That's a limitation of the deck, not the phone I'm afraid mate. Only the new range of HUs allow for "two-way" control, where you can control music from both the HU and the iPhone.

    For example, the stereo that I really want:

    JVC KD-AVX77 DVD Receiver

    One of the features is "2-way control for iPod/iPhone". I hit a button on the display and I toggle between control on the HU or iPod/iPhone. Some models even allow simultaneous control, without even needing to hit a toggle button.

    Pretty cool, but as you can see, that AVX77 aint cheap!

    I have a addon to my radio and when I put it on AUX instead of IPOD I can control the music from my iPod instead of the radio. The only downside is I loose the name of the song on the radio.
