United-Kingdom iPod Classic Disconnecting

Hi All,

Loving my roadster to bits and enjoying the visual boost radio with iPod connected via the oem mini y cable. The trouble is, after working without fault for days on end, I get into the car and try to use the iPod, but the second after selecting it from the list of connected external devices, it disappears and says not connected.

Do anyone suffer from this problem and if so, do they have a remedy?

I am wondering if the iPod is the issue - its either a 5th or 6th generation iPod classic 160gb - maybe its a little bit too old, or starting to have issues ?!

Thanks in advance.

I use my old 30g ipod classic (its about 7 years old) in my convertible. I do get the odd time when a track will show that it is playing but it isnt and I can move forwards or backwards so I go an listen to the radio for a while and it seems to sort itself out.

I did have the same issue as you last week though, it kept saying that it was not connected, I was driving at the time so I couldnt pull the plug out and put it back in to see if it made any difference but it seemed to right itself when I went back to the car.

Same here. I tried my 2008 ipod nano, my iphone 4 and my iphone 5s. All of them are not seen by my Mini. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. If I advance a song it flips to the radio, then if I am lucky, it will see the iphone again. I'm going to the dealer to see if it is the cable or the unit (please dear god, not the unit. I just replaced the engine at 3,000 miles).

I am beginning to worry about my Mini's quality.

Are you using the BMW Y cable or a cheapie off Amazon or EBay? It could be that.

Also, have you tried the iPod with just the charging/sync cable? My iPod works with that, I read somewhere that you only need the 3.5mm Jack plug on the Y cable for when you are using video.

I'll try that. I'm using the BMW cable that came with my Mini. Something tells me that with everyone having the same problem all over the place, and with different types of connections, there is something wrong with the unit itself. This is still a new technology and we are the guinea pigs.

The sad thing is, this ISN'T new technology - there have been iPod interfaces for cars for as long as there have been iPods. I've had both factory and aftermarket units that worked flawlessly with many different Apple devices...and today my MINI just stopped playing my iPod.

Was using an old 30GB Classic that had been working fine for a year...was skipping over some songs and got dumped to radio. Tried my iPhone 5s and same issue. The car recognizes the Aux jack and both devices are charging, but neither will play. Power-cycled the head unit twice, no change.

For the price MINI and BMW charge for their sound systems, they should work, plain and simple...
