Customer Question
Hi, I have two Kenwood car...
Hi,
I have two Kenwood car receivers a 645 and a 993. I have upgraded my Iphone 3gs to os4. My phone bluetooth works well but the Ipod section of my phone will not work. I get the error message "ipod error" which isn't much help. Is there a workaround or fix?
Thanks,
Bob

Hi

Try with bluetooth off.
This version is known to have the problem. you can either switch back to older version using restore on your itunes.


OR
You can plug a 3.5mm jack into the headphone output of the iphone and into the aux on the rear of the keni and use that as a HFK until apple release a fix. You'll have to use you iphone as your music source to do this and the phone as the mic-not ideal but something.

I was under the impression that I couldn't revert to my previous os.
True or not?

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
