How do I get the Apline CDM 7861 to show the AUX function for use w/ an iPod?
I've plugged the appropriate cable (M) to the CD changer outlet that converts from an RCA plug to a cable with a mini plug that I can use with an iPod. Unfortunately I can not get the AUX function to appear on the faceplate so that the unit can recognize and play my iPod. I've tried the key selection process outlined in the URL below but still can not get the unit to show the AUX function. http://www.discountcarstereo.com/pdf/v-link.pdf
When I press the F button for 3 seconds all I get is the ability to change the frequency for a sub woofer (which I do not have installed).
What gives? Do I need to turn off the sub woofer in order to get the AUX function to appear? Or is there a different key selection process?

Add Alpine's optional "Full Speed" connection cable and you'll be able to use the CDE-9872 to control your iPod. -Crutchfields website
This is compatible with first and second generation iPods touch. fyi- if you have a mini-stereo aux in jack on the deck you can connect a ipod touch compatible mini stereo cable to the earphone jack of your ipod.
The adapter cable will convert the changer port on your head unit into an AUX input with dual RCA jacks. Once connected, the head unit will detect the cable and allow it to be another source (i.e. radio, cd, aux).
To connect your iPod to the adapter cable, use any iPod cable or dock that outputs to male RCA plugs.
I believe that you are lucky since the "P" in the model number of the deck indicates and extra input source on the rear of your deck. This is used right now by your changer. You need to replace the changer with the Ipod and you are done. Stereo mini to dual rca's and you are done.
