The car doesn’t recognize iPods connected via USB.
The only thing you can do is to pair the device with the car via Bluetooth. All but the first iPod touch should support Bluetooth audio streaming. The last iPod nano supports Bluetooth, as well.
Anyway, connect to car directly via Bluetooth and then you’re set to go (no adapter necessary, since those devices have native Bluetooth).
Oooooh! You meant the iPod Touch. Gotcha, coz the thread is about the iPod Touch. Yeah, ok, I see.
Thing is I’ve been trying my darnedest to try to connect my iPod Classic to the Hyundai without USB compatibility on the dashboard, nor an aux input.
I wish they had just included an AUX input on the 2022 Hyundai Limited.
in the meantime, I’m using an ancient Belkin TuneCast for my iPod Classic. It’s an FM transmitter, and in a city like mine, where there actually IS an 87.5, it’s really tough to find a free station that doesn’t have an existing radio station a few clicks away. So the clarity, fidelity and loudness is really compromised.
In fact, wanted to know if anyone has had any luck with a Bluetooth Transmitter, as I figure that using a Bluetooth transmitter to take my iPod classic’s tunes through an AUX cable and cast it over BT to the Hyundai stereo would be an acceptable compromise for me.
However, I have gone through 3 different transmitters and have had no luck with connections.
1. Cheap Receiver/Transmitter (no screen) - cannot pair with Hyundai Palisade’s via Bluetooth as I need a device that can search, discover, LIST DOWN, and then allow ME to select it from a list, hence my second try with a…
2. Cheap 5.0 BT Receiver/Transmitter (with screen) - was able to detect and list “Palisade” but despite clicking “OK” it just would not pair. I figured it might be a hardware quality thing. So I tried…
3. A slightly more premium Essager Branded 5.0 BT Receiver/Transmitter (with screen) - which had the ability to connect to up to 2 devices and save several on its onboard memory. I could detect “Palisade” from the list, but like #2, could NOT select it and pair it. I turned it off and tried and retried. Nothing worked.
Which got me thinking… does the Palisade ONLY want Bluetooth devices that have screens and can input the “0000” pass key? Was that my only missing step? In which case, does there exist a Bluetooth transmitter that has an AUX input, a screen to select your speaker, and a keypad to input a “0000” passkey?
I swear, if someone from Hyundai is listening - do you see what the omission of an AUX input can push people to do? Do you see the hoops we have to jump through?
if anyone has had ANY luck connecting an AUX-dependent device (portable CD player/Discman units, older iPods, HiDef Digital Audio Players, etc.) please chime in. I would really appreciate some help right about now. 🙏 🙏 🙏 😅
