I just purchased a 2006 new to me Elise, and unlike my friends two 2005s it does not have an iPod cable coming out. I would really like to charge my iPhone off of it and play Pandora vs radio. Is there just a cable I need, or do certain factory radios not have iPod integration? Does anyone know if the factory radios support playing pandora vs only supports native iPhone iTunes app.

Thanks

What type of radio is it? I have an 08 and it came with an Alpine CDE-9827. All I want to know about it is on the web when I search for the manual. I would imagine the same holds true for your radio.

Some have the cable and some don't. I don't think the stock radio will even charge I-phones? Time for a new head, if you have to pull it out (to put a cable in) then send it to the junk pile and get a better one.

What is that standard upgrade for head units for the 06's? I'm thinking about doing the same so I can play ipod/iphone music.

You my consider a head unit with a rear USB hookup from which you can run a cable through the dash - depending on whether you like to have cables hanging around over your gearshift.

Or get a head unit that supports A2DP bluetooth... A2DP allows audio streaming over bluetooth! Great for iPhone with Pandora app. Careful - not all bluetooth supports A2DP. Some manufactures only offer A2DP in their optional bluetooth adaptors (ie Alpine).
Kenwood makes some good A2DP decks!

Cables? You don't need no stinking cable!!!

Need to make sure I have a long enough cable that I can run it up to the phone when I have Harry's Laptimer running on the track. It burns 70% of battery life in 30 minutes of driving/video recording.
