Can't Control Ipod with Avic D3 Screen (but it will play)

After a year and a half of everything working as it should, I suddenly cannot control my 60G iPod Video through the Avic D3 touch screen. I can play music and advance the songs via the hard buttons but when I select the iPod on the A/V menu screen, the screen goes black with one line of instruction to use the functions on the iPod to control it. So basically, I have to use the iPod itself and just have it plugged into the Avic D3 to route it to the speakers. It seems like it could be some setting I messed up but I can't figure it out. Any suggestions?

    i get the same problem on mine. it has worked just fine for about 4 months without any problems. then last week it just wouldnt work. I have to play music through the video selection on the avic and manually switch songs. Ive tried reseting the avic and the ipod and neither has worked. But when i plug in my iphone it works just fine so im wondering if its the ipod thats tripping out. My ipod is a video classic

SOURCE: iPod Touch TV Out not working

Not sure if that works, but me us know if it does. Everything I have read suggests that it will not work. Apple has blocked any after market products from working like avic-d3. I think what you would also need with that is Apple TV. Let me know

SOURCE: ipod classic

I have them same setup... I have an 80GB classic with the same version software that it came with... My ipod is connected with the pioneer direct control cable and works fine for Audio and the sound for video play back but no image...

The solution is for pioneer to make a new direct cable that allow video playback .. (it requires a new license from apple) and new fireware inside the new cable... same as the one that comes in new ipod composite A/V cable...

After some research and some common electronics knowledge... this is what I am going to do to make this work for now that both pioneer and apple suck!...

you can use the composite A/V cable connected to the input on AVIC -D3... and use the ipod as an Aux input.. ofcourse you wont have the nice control from your AVIC from ipod menu but you have to use the ipod for full control... wut sucks about this method is that you have to switch between the pioneer direct cable and composite A/V cable eveytime you want to watch video or lesson to music... Bull shit!! .. and just wait till pioneer comes with the new cable...

SOURCE: Ipod problems with Pioneer AVIC-D3

Do you have an ipod module or are you using ibus-to-rca cable to connect your ipod to the D3? In order to control full ipod functions by touch screen you need the ipod module, hence the D3 says ipod control ready not ipod control built in. Let me know so I can pin point the problem.

Full operation from D3?


I think you need an Ipod adapter, for sale on Ebay from $35 to $50. It is a module not just ibus to Ipod cable.
