connection to your compatible iPod using the supplied iPod connection cable,
which has an 8-pin plug on one end and an iPod dock connecter on other.
iPod Operation: Once the iPod is connected
to the CCAIPOD the iPod buttons are disabled and the display is locked. All
operations of the iPod are controlled from your head unit. Some iPod operations

within a category or Random for all songs
- Repeat: select either Repeat a song,
Repeat a category, or Repeat all songs
Playlist Function: The CCAIPOD interface
can support all the playlists in your iPod but cannot be used to create a
playlist. A playlist must be first created in your iPod prior to connection to
your head unit via the CCAIPOD. The interface then will support all playlists
that are previously loaded into your iPod before connections. However
"On-the-go" playlist which is created by the iPod itself will not be supported.
The adapter might not play updated songs of the "Smart Playlist" properly after
connection. It only plays the list set before connection.
Changing Sources: You can still change
sources from your head-unit while the iPod is connected and playing. When you
change the source while listening to your iPod the iPod playback is temporarily
paused. Your iPod's settings and play position are kept as long as the iPod is
still connected during that period of time.
