After researching your model DEH-P470MP, it appears that to use an iPod, you need an adapter that plugs into the rear port of the unit intended for a multi-cd changer connection. If you have one installed and it's not working, I would check the connection on the unit. Make sure the cable is firmly seated in the port and then check the cable and also check for any fuse in the line to make sure it's not blown out. Also some of the earlier models of ipod adapters aren't compatible with the newer generations of ipods. There are aftermarket adapter plugs that will allow your ipod to charge/play off these earlier decks/adapters.
This radio has no IP-Bus (Pioneer's peripheral plug in) plug on the back of the unit or any connection for USB or 1/8" stereo headphone jack on it. You will not be able to conect an iPod to this unit. Visit the website at www.pioneerelectronics.com to see their current iPod solutions. They have multiple head units that allow for you to charge iPod and iPhones as well and give you control through the head unit or through the iPod itself.
You can purchase the KCA-420i and connect it to to the ai-net port behind the headunit. This will allow you to send signal from your ipod to your alpine headunit while still retaining your operating functions to the ipod. Can be purchased for about 10 bucks on ebay.
