IPod Classic (6th Gen 120/180gb)
I just got my 2019 Insight one the first things I wanted to do is connect my iPod Classic to the infotainment system. In regular iPod mode it did not work, the system recognizes it, but wont play anything, it freezes. But thinking the USB port is compatible with a “USB stick” to play back music, I thought well if I put my iPod in disk mode, maybe I can have a 120 gb disk? And it worked! I was able to listen to my music from my iPod Classic thru my infotainment system and control the music and search files with my steering wheel and the system interface it self!! The only negative this that I have to manually turn on/off my iPod, if you do not, the iPod with not shut off on its own. It does charge but thru the cable, but if you leave it there for enough time, the battery will be depleted on your iPod.
Anyone know of any other way to connect your iPod classic? I know it does not appear in the compatible iPod list Honda publishes, but I do not want to get rig of my ipod classic, its been with me for almost 10 year!! And have over 100gb of music!! Jajajaj. Next I will try a Bluetooth module see if that works.
