Post Playing Older iPods in Cars
i have the hamster car (kia soul) which has a usb port to connect iPods to so i can play the tracks over my regular audio system BUT it doesn't work on older model iPods *booooo really have no plans in updating to an iTouch, so was wondering if anyone know if there's a special cable i can get. i'm guessing probably not since it's just not compatible w/the car's system, but eh - worth asking :P

If the iPod is really old, then even though the dock connector is the same, the connection is technically Firewire instead of USB. I thought that only affected charging. Maybe not? If that's the issue, I don't know of any easy solution.

Does the Soul's manual mention compatibility?

i don't recall it saying anything about compatibility in the manual, just says to plug it in or connect via bluetooth and let 'er roll lol the only cables i know of requires a tape deck of which i don't have. eh, plan on eventually upgrading my iPhone anyways, so i'll just start loading some of my music on my old phone once i make the upgrade
