iPod Charging with Nissan Interface System for iPod
APPLIED VEHICLES: All Nissan with Nissan Interface System for iPod (factory installed or accessory installed)
Please be aware that a recent design change was made by Apple to their iPod and iPhone products. As a result of this change, some customers may report that their iPod / iPhone device does not charge while connected to the Nissan Interface System for iPod.
The Nissan Interface System for iPod was designed to charge the customer/'s iPod with a 12-volt power source, which has been supported by all Apple iPod and iPhone devices until the latest generation.
After Apple's design change, these new devices only support charging via a 5-volt source, which the Interface System does not provide.
Customers may see error messages on the device screen, or notice that the device's battery discharges while connected to their vehicle's interface system. Please note that while charging may not be supported, playback and control through the vehicle's audio system are still available.
All Apple devices that support charging via a FireWire connection are compatible with the Nissan Interface System for iPod. These include:
iPod Classic - 1St through 6th generation
iPod Mini - 1St through 2nd generation
iPod Nano - 1st through 3rd generation
iPod Touch - 1st generation
iPhone - 1St generation
NOTE: Refer to the vehicle Owners Manual for further Nissan Interface System Information.
Non-compatible devices (as of 121812008):
