I recently bought a iSimple product from Best Buy. This product Model # PXAMG for a 2005 F150. I installed the product, which integrates an iPod hook-up for factory stereos. My problem is the music flows system and plays but I do not have any control over the ipod through my stock stereo as the product mentioned I would. I have done a little research with no avail. The owners manual states to 'update the ipod's firmware and they reset the ipod.' My iPod nano is current will all updates. I am puzzled, I currently have the PXAMG un-installed and waiting to see if I need to have professional installed. Any help would be awesome, thanks.

Did you meet the following conditions:

Radio must be satellite capable or satellite ready
Requires vehicle specific harness (sold separately)


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

Yeah, my radio has the "AUX" button and has the correct harness. My stereo connects with the iPod, and plays the songs. The problem is I cannot 'seek' to other songs or choose playlist. Basically, I have no control over the iPod.

I can only suggest reviewing this list of "DOs" to see if you overlooked something. My understanding from some brief reading is that this is supposed to work through a Satellite Radio or HD Radio hookup. Your AUX hookup might be the issue.
