#27 of 80 my new 07 has AUX input
Aug 30, 2006 (4:44 pm)
I just bought a 4 door black 2007 Rabbit yesterday and it does indeed have an AUX input in the glove compartment. It is on the top right, near the front. It is surrounded by a white rectangle.
I also found out today from calling VW HQ, that the iPod option isn't available until Nov. At this time, it will be installed in or near the armrest is what the rep told me. If you do hear of an iPod option currently available, it is just the old iPod adapter that they've been using for other models. It is NOT the one that is specifically designed to be used with the new 07 Rabbits.
Personally, unless they completely overhaul the interface of the nav menu from the iPod adapter, I'm just going to stick with using the AUX input. It's not worth paying over $300 to get the iPod adapter installed.

How do you hook up your iPod through the AUX input?

Just bought my 2dr Rabbit manual tranny with esp and 16" alloys and the floor mat trunk liner package on Saturday. Was wondering why I wasn't getting light in the glove box and where they did put the aux 1/8" jack. Turns out that's where the jack is, where the light used to be. Rather have the jack than the light, seems like there is plenty of light to be had inside anyway.

I'm not very familiar with the Ipod, but I am a A/V Tech. I imagine the Ipod has a headphone jack unless Apple has their very own styled connections, but essentially a cable with 1/8" stereo connectors at each end (aka mini-plug).

Correct the IPod has a headphone jack on the top. Also depending on the car adapter you get for power some have an amplified jack in the adapter as well. These get better sound. As nice as the IPod is the amplifier in the unit for it's stereo out jack sux. Using one pulling signal out the interface plug always yields better quality sound.
Also if you are using the standard stereo jack out don't turn the IPod above half way up. That yields better quality sound.
My XM works in it well also

#33 of 80 iPod for 2007 Rabbit

2007 Rabbit with the adapter in the glove box. Do I have to buy a $169 cable from my dealer to get my Ipod to work on the cars sound system? Also any one know how or if satelitte radio (Sirius/XM) works on the cars?

Is anyone running a cable out of the glove box so you or a passenger can control the Ipod? Which is the easiest way to do this without leaving the glove box open?
It seems weird that they didn't put it in the dash or armrest.
#35 of 80 07 rabbit stereo issues
Oct 29, 2006 (9:36 am)
hi folks,i just purchased a few days ago a 07 4dr rabbit and iam already haveing issues with the stereo.it seems that while iam driveing the volume goes up and down by itself and the sound becomes muffled and distorted.has anyone else experienced this with their rabbit??
i took the car in yesterday (saturday) and explained the situation to the service advisor and he told me that he doesn't have a clue to what is causing this and also that this is a common problem among rabbits.they won't replace the radio cause the radio and cd player work fine.one of the service advisors jokeing around said maybe my stereo was haunted which i did not find very amuseing to say the least.anyway,they basically told me to live with the problem because there was nothing that they could do.this is getting very annoying.

just a follow up here to my previous post.the 07 rabbit is advertised to have a 10 speaker stereo system but in reality it only has 8 functioning speakers.the 2 big speakers 1 in the drivers door and 1 in the passenger front door do not function.just put your ear next to those speakers and you'll see what i mean.
