Pinout of Philips RC 659 Headunit

This headunit was installed in my car in 2000. I'd like to connect an Ipod now, but not via FM transmission - not if I can avoid it in any case. Otherwise no available solutions support this discontinued product line. This unit has an option of installing a CD changer (also an Aux in) but I cant find any documentation on the pins of the "C" plug in the rear. Looks like ISO, but seems to be different. Can anyone help?

I have a ken wood aftermarket headunit. I was always able to plug in my usb and play music through us now I hooked up my subs and when I pulled the headunit out I didn't disconnect any wires or anything...

You didn't give much detail on model of unit, etc. However I remember vaguely from my wife's KW DVD/Nav unit, that the USB port can serve one (and only one) of 2 purposes. One is as an "uplink" to firmware (I think, or maybe it was some sort of remote control, been too many years), the other is what you want, as an "accessory" USB port. It sounds like that setting might have gotten changed while doing your setup. Download the manual for your specific model number from Kenwood and it should have details there.

I want to connect my ipod to the radio

According to Apple, over 90 percent of new cars retailed in the United States are equipped with iPod connectivity.
The iPod has become such a popular device, that many car stereos are now furnished with a 30-pin dock connector cable in order to link to the portable media player.
But this built-in compatibility is not essential for connecting your iPod to your car stereo. In fact, there are numerous options for integrating your iPod with your car.
Recently manufactured vehicles can support an iPod connection through an auxiliary input.
And FM transmitters can be used to stream your iPod's audio files through an FM frequency. iPods can even be connected to much older car stereos with the use of a tape adapter.

Connect an iPod to a Car Stereo Through the Auxiliary Input
Insert an extension cable with 3.5 mm stereo connectors on each end into the headphone output of your iPod. Insert the other end of the 3.5 mm stereo connector cable into your car stereo system's auxiliary input. Press the "Aux" button on your car stereo. Turn on your iPod and select media to play. The stereo will now stream audio from your iPod. b> Connect an iPod to a Car Stereo With an FM Transmitter Insert the FM transmitter into the 30-pin dock connector of your iPod. Turn on your iPod to activate the FM transmitter. Select the FM frequency you want your device to stream audio to on your car stereo. Turn on the car stereo and tune it to the same FM frequency as the FM transmitter attached to your iPod. The stereo will now stream audio from your iPod. b> Connect an iPod to a Car Stereo With a Cassette Adapter Plug the jack connector of the cassette adapter into the headphone output of your iPod. Insert the cassette into the car stereo. Turn on your iPod and select media to play. The stereo will now stream audio from your iPod.,2817,1865467,00.asp

FM Radio

iPods do not come with FM tuners. FM tuners can be bought and added on as an extra feature, but this is a third party device, not an iPod device.

Generally, when you connect the third party FM tuner to the iPod, the iPod will recognize it and you can use the 3rd party FM tuner to change stations.

If you do not have the FM tuner to connect to the iPod, the individual that sold you the iPod did not include the FM tuner to connect to the the iPod. In that case, the Menu will still list the FM tuner, but there is no device to connect to the iPod.
