My experience has been that using the AUX port alone with an older iPod will result in fairly crappy sound and no external control. Look for the correct multimedia interface (amplifier) to make it work better. Things are much better with COMAND, as the interface is far more useful Below is from the manual: Calling up AUX mode Press and hold CDC button until AUX appears in the display. The device connected with the external audio source cinch-connector is heard, provided it is switched to playback. You can adjust the volume the sound settings and the volume distribution for the AUX input. The following settings can be made in the audio AUX mode: Volume Sound settings Volume distribution Canceling AUX mode Press any audio source button. The AUX mode is canceled. Warning! Only operate an external audio source (AUX) when the vehicle is stationary. There is a risk of accident by being distracted from road and traffic conditions if you operate an ex- ternal audio source (AUX) while the vehicle is in motion. Bear in mind that at a speed of just 30 mph (approximately 50 km/h), your car is covering a distance of 44 feet (approximately 14 m) every second. Warning! Due to the different volumes of the external audio sources, system messages (e.g. traffic and navigation announcements) may be much louder. You may need to disable these system messages or adjust the volume of these messages manually. i Please refer to the relevant manufacturers operating instruction for the external audio source device. i The volume of external audio sources is ex- tremely variable. It is possible that a device con- nected as an external audio source will sound quieter or louder in the vehicle or that the usual maximum volume cannot be achieved. On cer- tain devices the volume can be set separately. In
