When I attach my IPOD touch via the USB port, nothing happens. The car doesn’t see it. I can play audible and music via Bluetooth, but you don’t get the functionality you get using a USB. Apple Carplay doesn’t work with an IPOD. I tried a Scandisk mp3 player, and it worked like a charm. Of course, I can’t listen to podcasts or audible using Scandisk.
Hyundai or Apple: Please, Please create a patch or some sort of fix for this. I need my IPOD!

Yes, the Palisade will not play my ipod. Very frustrating.
So I transferred my music to a USB stick. Should be good to go right? Wrong. Apple now copies files to the new MP4 format, which the Palisade cannot read. Only MP3, so now I need to transfer to MP3.

Has anyone tried leaving iPod connected to the USB jack for several hours. This is what happened to me in my 2018 GMC with iPod Classic 128GB, initially when plugged in, it did not see the iPod only charged it, but after 3-4 hours, stereo indexed all media on the iPod and started to play and it works great now. it plays with my CarPlay phone and iPod I just press Media button to switch the devices. Suspect it is not quite the same on Palisade, but if iPod USB connected is not supported by Hyundai... I will be very surprised. USB drive is so 2001...

I had the same issue with my 2019 Ram 1500. Did research and found out that it is because Apple was not supporting the drivers needed for their older media players (iPods) to be compatible with the newer audio systems. Copied all 4,000 songs to a USB thumb drive (on the root directory) and it plays them all. I took the USB drive and put it into my 2021 Palisade and it plays like a charm.

How did you convert your songs off from the Apple / iTunes format to make them playable on a usb drive?

Yes, I have repeatedly left my iPod Touch plugged in overnight, as well as for two 5-hour road trips, and it still only works via Bluetooth for me.
Could I ask for a little bit of clarification when you say “still only works via Bluetooth”?

How are you able to successfully play your iPod over Bluetooth on the Palisade’s onboard sound system? Do you use an adaptor? Could you share your specific adaptor/device to do this?

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. 🙏 🙏 🙏 😅

Found this while searching online as a response from an Apple Rep via the apple.com support threads (from July 2021). This at least drives the nail in the coffin for the iPod Classic working via CarPlay:

“While it may be possible to connect your iPod as an auxiliary USB or Bluetooth device to your car stereo to hear music, the CarPlay capability specifically requires iPhone, so there isn't an option to use CarPlay with iPod.”
