Ipod adapter DIETZ 72310+72311
Fits in back of any AUDIO 20 unit in CLK 05-08, C class 05-07, R class 05-08, ML 06-08, GL 07-08. This adapter works direct through the steering wheel controls only.
Best with an ipod classic or similar 12 volt Ipod ( although the later 5 volt Ipods can be used with a separate charging adapter). Its best to leave an older Ipod in the glovebox invisible and constantly charged. Just turn the AUDIO 20 on and press "AUX". It remembers. $175 Australian dollars+postage. The AUDIO 50 uses the same adapter but a different cable (72313) which I don't have. I used this unit in my R class for 2 years and it was music bliss! Easy to fit and remove. No cuts and in the R class at least the cabling into the glove box is quite easy. The CD stacker is disabled when this unit is plugged in but why worry? There's no comparison.
