Question about Sony CDX-MP40 CD Player
My CDX-MP40 doesn't recognise when I plug my I pod into the head unit using the BUS input terminals. Do I need to use the BUS control terminal as well? If so, is there any way round this problem. Many thanks for showing an interest Louis
Some Sony head units let you use the Bus audio inputs as an auxiliary source input, but yours is not among them. To play your iPod through the head unit, you'll either need an iPod interface module: http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/accessories/XA-110IP or an auxiliary input module: http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/accessories/XA-300 The iPod interface will allow you to control and display the iPod directly through the head unit, while an auxiliary input adapter will allow the iPod to play through the head unit using the iPod's controls and display.

Another simple solution is to order the PAC Sony Unilink adapter from Crutchfeild.com for $30. It makes the deck think there is a CD changer attached to the RCA connectors in back of the deck. This makes the RCA jacks selectable as an additional source. You then leave a Y cable connected to the RCA inputs in back of the deck and connect a portable music source and select it from the menu on the deck or via the marine remotes in boat applications.
