I was about to buy one of these units however I have been told that the unit will not operate from the steering wheel controls in my car. I have a Mercedes CLK registered in 2000. I have been told that a JVC unit will not work of the Mercedes steering wheel controls.Is there a solution that you can assist with?

hi, most of the slots that plays the ipod is in front of the head unit panel, if you dont find any slots in front then it will be nowhere at the back for it will be hard to access. hope this helps, have a nice day
it's not for running your ipod or whatever else, it's for steering wheel control for those cars that have the feature. that's what it says in the manual anyway, there's gotta be a way to run the ipod through though for sure
Hi, KD-LH810 has no option for external input. Refer to the picture attached. It is only front and rear line outputs. Don't get disappointed. Buy the accessory cable KS-U100 and you are set. This info is from the installation manual.
If by bypass you mean bypass the no video in montion message, which stops you from viewing video while the car is moving.
The green cable that comes out the back of the stereo needs to be ground. I just took the plastic coating off the wire and wrapped it round a nut and bolt near my gear stick. This will allow you to watch videos all the time.
Don't go paying for a kit on the internet, just a waste of money,
If your autochanger has an input as well as an output connector it will be possible. The iPod adapter would have to be plugged into the changer's input, and the changer's output cable would run to the KD-G421.
This manual here from JVC shows a diagram on the middle of page 1 where an i-Pod adapter (I'm assuming you have the KS-PD100) is connected daisy-chained with an XM tuner or a DLP unit. Although it doesn't explicitly say that it would work with a CD changer, I don't think it'll be a problem as long as you have an input on the changer.
Normally, your JVC Car Stereo will not allow direct connection to an Apple iPod.
However, there are several aftermarket interface adaptor that will allow you to do so:
1. Connect the iPod to a JVC KS-PD100 which in turn is connected to the CD changer jack of the KD-G720 (rear of the unit). Set the stereo to CD changer external input setting and you're ready to go;
2. Connect the iPod to an FM Transmitter such as the Griffin iTrip (w/ Dock connector) which in turn will broadcast the IPod music as an FM signal. Operating the KD-G720 on FM radio setting will receive the IPod's broadcast music.
Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.
