Anybody with the Xcarlink unit fitted can explain how to navigate menu/playlists etc on an ipod using the steering wheel controls? Is the info from the ipod displayed on the little comp screen that has all the mpg/miles left/av speed displays?

I don't have one yet so its just out of curiosity I'm asking.

The info from the iPod isn't displayed on the the screen unfortunately. And there is also no way to navigate through albums (that I know of). However, once listening to an album, you can use the track + and - buttons to skip through the tracks

Thats good enough for me. So if I buy the basic Honda Ipod Interface, no Y cable bluetooth kit or 3.5mm aux cable, I'm good to go?

BDJW, did you have any probelms ordering the Xcarlink unit? Been trying the last couple of days but order wont go thru cos the order form needs a Postcode and N/A wont be accepted.

I emailed Xcarlink and they got back in touch, so should get sorted soon.

Going spare stuck listening to radio, gonna have to burn a few fave cd's, and work out how to burn MP3's using itunes.

I can't remember exactly what I entered when I ordered it, but I followed somebodies guidance on here and had no problem ordering it. I am considering changing the head unit in mine, but it will be a few months before I have the money for it unfortunately!

I got an xcarlink for Christmas off of the folks (handy hint dropping started around October time)
You can't really do anything with the steering wheel controls other than skip track up or down.
What you can do, is set a playlist or album playing on the iPod before you set off and use the skip track feature to flip forwards or backwards.
I've got a 160Gb iPod Classic in there at the moment and it's working great!
I couldn't recommend the xcarlink enough. Granted, there is no display on the car other than "CDC 1-01" (and "EXTENSION" on my EX Sat Nav Screen), but the iPod is in the centre console, so I can look at that if I need to :) NB - obviously when stationary of course :police::police::police:

Fitting it was easier than I thought. In fact, I'm considering offering my services (for a small fee, of course) for fitting xcarlinks to Civinfo members in the North West (and West Yorkshire, when it fits in with visiting the inlaws!)
PM for details :)
