Dension Ice Link Plus iPod adaptor enabling a seamless connection of your iPod to your Audi radio giving you the ability to control, play and self charge your iPod whilst giving you a superior alternative to using an FM transmitter.
The Ice Link Plus gives your iPod two modes of operation.
1. iPod Direct Access Mode - The iPod will play/pause when you enter/exit CD changer mode on your radio. In addition, the iPod responds to FF/RW from your head unit keys and steering wheel controls (where fitted)
2. iPod Playlist Mode - Your iPod maps the first five playlists stored on the iPod to CDs 1-5 on your head unit keys. Although the iPod keypad is disabled in this mode, the iPod display (and CD Text/dashboard displays in some applications) will show ID3 data of the currently playing song. Advanced content features including Random, Repeat, Scan and AlbumPlay are also available. CD6 accesses the ice>Link Plus menu that lets you browse all of the playlists on your iPod using your head unit FF/RW keys. The menu also provides configuration options for advanced features of the interface.
(N.B. the original 1G/2G iPods that don't have the bottom-mounted dock connector do not support Ice Link Plus playlist mode or the menu)
Ice Link Plus features upgradeable firmware. As future features are released by Dension, you can simply download the necessary upgrade files to your iPod and upgrade your Ice Link Plus.
