Been considering getting the Pioneer Avic 950 BT Double Din cos of the great reviews its got on this site.

But Ive noticed it doesn't have an aux or usb port and when ordering it I need an extra cable for ipod connection.

My question is how does the ipod work with it? Is the cable fed from the back of the unit? Are there other Double Dins as good as the Pioneer (w/sat nav) that have a straight forward aux/usb connection?

I have the 950BT, it comes with the ipod cable (21 pin) which connects to the back of the head unit. I've never connected my iphone 5 to is using a cable so can't really tell you whats needed to do that properly as my ipod touch is a 4th gen and still uses the 21 pin connection, so my iphone 5 is only ever connected via bluetooth.

The ipod works well with the head unit, you can seach for you your music using either the touch screen of your ipod/iphone screen (I always use the ipod screen which is mounted on a Brodit Clip next to the stereo) and the sound quality is amazing in comparison to the original Head Unit, so I haven't even bothered changing the speakers to aftermarket items.

Here's my thread from when I fitted mine, hopefully it will be of some use to you, and good luck with your purchase.

Thanks for the reply, it looks great in your car.

I don't have an iphone (and don't want my music on a phone), just the regular 120 gig Classic.

And I don't want to connect via Bluetooth - Id rather a lead connection.

Yeah my ipod is always connected via the lead. The only thing I use the bluetooth for is to make hands free telephone calls.

Sorry, misread your first post - so the lead that connects the ipod, that is run from the back and where do you have access to it? Is it ran past the handbrake to the armrest like most (including myself) have done with the xcarlink unit?

The lead for the ipod comes with the 950BT head unit and is connected to the back of the head unit and comes out the bottom of the centre console in the passenger footwell where it is connected to my ipod. there is no need to use an xcarlink unit, that is a completely seperate unit for connecting an ipod to the aux input on the back of a standard oem stereo.

Oh yeah I know - just wondering if that was the same set-up with the ipod cable w/the Double Din.

I have an xcarlink, great little unit, has served me very well, but I want the Double Din. Badly! Ha Ha!

Thanks for your replies bud!
