My car has spent 2 weeks with an OPC and they have failed to resolve the issue.(even though they said they had)
Miffed to say the least. Wall

Has anyone come across this issue.....

Connecting the ipod using the USB in the glove box.

Initially the ipod works fine, full functionality (album covers/scrolling) sometimes for a couple of hours but then the connection disappears.

Then after a few seconds it reconnects itself only to do the same thing again after a few minutes.

Sometimes it does not recognize the ipod at all.

I have read on other forums that the 2017 991.2 does not recognize ipod classics but mine is a 2015 991.1 and with the newer cars the PCM says "device not supported".

Can anyone help?...........before I buy a USB drive and download music to that.

Jukebox does not have enough storage.

Dont know Dont know Dont know Dont know

I just use a 32GB USB stick, works in most of my cars and stores way more tunes than I need. It also means I'm not stuck with that god-awful Apple software. Cost me about £6.

Yeah this is probably the route I will have to take....but I thought it might be an issue with the USB in the glove-box, therefore a USB stick would have the same problem Dont know

I am going to try (when I get time) my son's ipod touch as it may have different firmware.

I have 2 classics that I have tried. Both of which have worked fine since 2010 through until now. (my 996 C2 and 997 4S)

32 GB is not enough Very Happy I like music.

Before I replaced the drive in my Classic with a SSD, it used to do something very similar in the car. Something to do with the drive heads getting too hot as the head unit forces them to constantly be on (no support for 'idle' mode) and as its a micro-drive inside there rather than a proper hard disk the excess heat causes the Classic to sputter.

I used one of Tarkans early boards with a 512GB SSD, the later ones are vastly better and can take SD cards too: https://www.iflash.xyz/store/

You don’t have to limit yourself to 32GB flash drives, 64GB work too. I can’t think why 128GB wouldn’t work either but I haven’t tested it. Just remember that you’ll need something other than Windows to format it in FAT32 e.g. a Mac or Linux box. Thumb

Hi,

I have an iPod Classic in my new 991.2 GTS and it works with no issues, plugged in through the glove box. I haven't tried cover-flow though I'm still messing about with Apple Play which sometimes picks up the iPhone and other times it just ignores it. I tried cleaning out the connection socket but then I worked out it only recognises the phone if it's plugged in before the ignition is started when it's setting itself up

Your's could be software issue and a reset by OPC might help you but I'd try another lead first, Apple iPod & iPhone leads are notorious for overheating.

Cheers,
Paul
