yeah yeah I know I searched already, clearly I'm just a dumbass lol. Wanted to make sure I have the right cord and such because I cant get this thing to work. When I plug it in it just gives me this message.
"This accessory is not optimized for this iPhone"

From what I read in the owners manual I'm supposed to see a GM symbol, well that never happened. After that I can see the music/songs on my nav screen but the music is still only playing from my iphone none threw the speakers at all.

This is the cord I have.

Well, is it an iPod or an iPhone? If it's an iPod, I've had great success in resetting the iPod to cure all problems.

You have the correct cord. I also have had problems with my iPhone 4 in the past. Funny thing is when I went to ios 5 about a month ago it started working in my V. Go figure. I have an old 80 Gig iPod classic that I have been using in the V now and it works fine. Also fits nice and snug along the side. Seems like that space was designed to fit that iPod perfectly.

Iphone4, is that the problem?Don't know, I have a 2 generation ago iPod Nano, which resides in my car, and an iPhone 4 which is not allowed to communicate with my system. Could be that the iPhone 4 is not supported. Don't despair, floor it and you won't care. Enjoy one of the best American HP performance cars ever made.
