Jazz MK2 USB port cable - questions on how it works
« on: November 26, 2018, 10:38:44 PM »
Hello,
From the other threads, I've happily found out that you can buy the cable that plugs into the USB port on the Jazz mk2 dashboard fascia:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B017G4IG6C/?coliid=I4KW0VR9FAKAE&colid=382WDJLEWILQ0&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

1) Does that work with the new iPhones etc, or is it limited to the classic iPods only?

2) If works with iPhones and iPod touch, are you limited to only the Music app?  OR can you output sound from Spotify and other apps?

3) When playing music, does the radio display show any music track details?  Artist and title? 

Because I've already bought an AUX output cable connecting to the lightning-audio jack dongle, I already have some way of playing music in the car.  I am curious to know if its worth spending another £10 on this cable so that I can control the music from the steering wheel, and see the track details on the display.

Cheers!

I've got a cable like that and just use a flash drive with the music on it. It does display the track etc info on the radio / CD player display, and the track up etc can be controlled from the steering wheel.

Ok so I just got it and man, what a bargain. OMG, what a difference it makes to audio quality! I used to have an AUX cable connected to lightning/audio jack dongle, and that sounded ok, until this came along.
Allows steering wheel control to skip track and raise/lower volume, but thatís it. Again, better than AUX cable and itís even more limited controls (volume only). Although it defaults to the music on your iPod mode (or built in Music app in iOS) it will happily relay any output eg Spotify and allow same skip track controls too. Nice.
