Anyone have any info on the new iPod adapter? It was mentioned in one of the press releases. Is it going to display song titles on the stock radio display? Will I be able to navigate menus in my iPod?

True... I asked them on Monday. They said give it mid next year at the soonest to see it in VW's. I saw it with my own eyes...

Re: New iPod adapter at SEMA (Davespeed)

As in, it will probably be on 2009 models? Was it a whole new radio needed to display the text and navigate the ipod, or can it be added to any VW radio like the current one and have that functionality?

According to the press release:
Quote »
2007 GTI 4 door
To capitalized on the GTI's new audio equipment, Volkswagen's Electronic Research Laboratory installed its latest iPod® adapter system which easily installs into most Volkswagen models with satellite radio. This new plug and play adapter allows users to control iPod® functions through their factory radio, and see artist, song, and playlist information.

So, it sounds like it plugs into the stock satellite-equipped radio. That sucks for me, because I think Sat Radio is a huge waste of money and I had no use for a sunroof. I would love to have the ipod tracks show up on my headunit or MFD, though.

I saw it, and my understanding of the adaptor, is it will work with existing units.
