Ipod FM Integration Problems
Hello, and thank you in advance for any assistance as my dealership and Mopar, unfortunately, have not been much help I had the Ipod FM Integration/adapter (82210181) installed when I had an RAQ stereo a few months back. Works pretty good EXCEPT the darn thing is constantly switching from the playing Ipod back to the 87.9 tuned station (which happens to be blaring static) in between songs and during softer parts of songs playing on my Ipod. Very annonying. I tested with a second Ipod to confirm it's not my Ipod. I then called the "Toll Free Tech Line" which came with the adapter's owner's manual and they basically said "we don't know much about those units" and said to take it back to the dealer. I took it back to the dealer, they rechecked all the wiring (they said) and couldn't find a problem or duplicate the issue...of course it did the same thing, switching back to the FM tuner while playing several times on the way home. I called the dealership back and told them it's still doing the same thing. They told me to bring it back in and they'd replace the adapter unit. My question is this: A) Does anyone else have the 82210181 FM Integration unit and do they or did they experience this problem...perhaps I have a rogue unit? B) I've since replaced my RAQ stereo with the Nav REC and understand there is a new Ipod 82209617 unit that isn't FM modulated. Does anyone have feedback on that unit? Perhaps I should go straight to that, but I've read mixed reviews, stating it's nice to have the Ipod info displayed on the Nav screen, but that it is difficult to navigate onscreen, you lose your Satellite presets each time you switch to the Ipod and it's sluggish if you are using a 30/60/80 gig ipod (like I have) with lots of songs (I have 14 gig of music)? Again, all help is appreciated!
