I suspect that could well be the case as the connection used for the changer is used by the ipod unless you were to use a FM transmitter for the ipod instead.
You shouldnt have much use for the changer if you have the ipod anyhow.

Are you getting a MkIV or MkV?

Theres no need to disconnect the changer if you have a switchable ipod connection fitted. This obviously allows you to change between Cd's and Ipod connection.

I've had my ipod connector fitted to my Sat nav , however disconnected the Cd's and its tbh i wish i still had both.

Is this for a MARK IV or V?

I have mark IV and I have both - but I bought a Dension Gateway 400 unit which makes the two switchable, great piece of kit. Saying that since I had it installed I haven't used the CD at all, as all my music is on the iPod - go figure.

Edit: to say just read some of your others posts and you have a mark V - I have checked the Dension website and it is compatible linky

When I bought my second-hand MFD Sat Nav unit, it came with 2 CDs - one for the UK & Ireland and another one for mainland Europe.

I have around 45GB taken up of the 60GB capacity of my ipod with around 5 thousand tracks and a fair few movies (Saw 2 & 3 and a number of Lost episodes) and a number of R32 videos too :)
