Has anyone plugged in their iPod without any issues? I plugged in the Hyundai OEM iPod Cable that I had from my Genesis Coupe which uses the two (AUX and iPod) outlets and it's not taking over the iPod, meaning it's playing the music straight from the iPod without the built-in iPod functionality that the car comes with. I'm at work and what I plan on doing is just reading the manual and seeing if I'm just supposed to use the stardard usb to ipod cable that you can buy from Apple. At this point, it sounds like that's the case and that Hyundai OEM iPod Cable is not what I'm supposed to use.

You will only be able to play it through one of the connections at a time (e.g. aux OR usb) and make sure you have selected USB on the touch screen. you do not need an auxiliary plugged in for it to read and control the iPod through the USB. Therefore the Hyundai cable is useless. or you could just connect it by Bluetooth and let your phone be controlled automatically when you step inside your car with your smartphone in your pocket (assuming you are using your phones music and not a separate iPod). Keep in mind though that Bluetooth does tend to drain phones fairly fast, especially if playing continuous music.

Excellent response, I'm actually using a classic iPod (trying to put it to good use) but I'll have to try just the USB plug. I just want to make sure I can still have my iPod charge while it shows all the playlists on the Car's LCD screen. That's what I liked about the Genesis Coupe, it worked really well with my iPod.

Use any regular iPod cable. Don't use the Hyundai cable. It will not read it as an iPod so you lose all the functionality via the AV system.

As it was already posted, just use the default Apple cable. I use the one that came with my ipad, actually, in my VT with a 2nd gen touch and the playlists/artists/etc are displayed on the car's LCD screen and charges the touch. So far, it works as expected with no problems.
