    Volvo ipod interface - I have it !!

    As I learnt so much off this site thought I should post some useful info in return. Over Christmass was surprised to learn that Volvo had launched an ipod adapter for the V70 2000 > having just bought a 2003 V70r I thought great I would buy one. Fitted this week (the dealers first) it is absolutley FANTASTIC and sounds every bit as good as any CD. You can control from you steering wheel as well. I beleive it is a PhatNoise AutoPort details can be found on the volvo website as well as at www.phatnoise.com. This is probably the best aftermarket product I ever seen from any manufacturer. (Cost 180)

    u couldn't fit a after market headunit on the v70p2, s60's, cos the radio.cd etc, is all moulded into centre unit bit, and why would u, when it has such a excellent stereo as standard

    thanks for info CMJ, might get that for my s60r and one those new ipods aswell!

    hows the V70R going? enjoying the grip in the corners i hope!?

    Its good that people are starting to make these things available for what must be a very small market.

    your missing the point! if u have a ipod, and u want it to work in your car, here's the answer, so u can play all your music, not just 4 cd's in volvo standard fit multi changer, can everyone stop going on about how much cheaper the radio or cd's are, i dont care! lol

    I only have a shuffle (bought it a few months before the nano came out ) so Cd's are the way to go for me at the moment. I think a proper Ipod could be a good birthday present though....

    Caffryns - eastbourne. First they had ever done and they weren't even sure they could order from Volvo yet. (PS - Great service from them also)

    I forgot, this was the fitted price
