    Anybody tried connecting an Ipad to the SRX?

    I got a message on the iPad that said "This device is not supported on the iPad"
    It came up as soon as I connected it to the SRX via USB.
    I made sure the iPod app on the iPad was running, but still got the message.
    Is the SRX connectivity truly not supported, or am I missing something?

    Why do you think the iPad should be able to be connected to the SRX?

    Because, isn't the ipad a bigger glorified itouch/pod?

    The iPad does have an iPod app, but I'm getting the feeling it won't work with the car.

    Re: Anybody tried connecting an Ipad to the SRX?

    That message usually means that the iPad won't charge properly when connected. Take a look at the upper right corner on the iPad when it's connected to the SRX. Does the battery/power indicator also say 'Not Charging'? The iPad wants more power than previous iPod/iPhone products. On my chargers that report 'not charging' the iPad usually holds its current charge level unless I'm doing heavy usage like large file downloads (app installs, video streaming).

    I'm trying to connect a desktop computer, a 46" HDTV and my Whirlpool washing machine to my SRX and I can't seem to get them to work either. Stupid car!

    What's your point? Don't you realize the IPad has IPod music function?

    Re: Anybody tried connecting an Ipad to the SRX?

    if they were the same then wouldn't it just work?
    apple has to update the ipad to work with the nav system... same thing they had to do with the iphone to get it to work with navs that only worked with ipods

    i would suggest checking the apple support forums for threads about what the ipad can and cannot connect with

    Yes, I realize that. The point I was trying to make is that just because the SRX has a USB input doesn't mean that ANYTHING with a USB plug should work. The SRX is only designed to integrate with a limited number of devices. It doesn't even work with all iPods. Why in God's name would you think it should work with an iPad.

    Not sure why anyone would want to connect a big, bulky iPad to the USB port when you can achieve the same end result using a simple, small convenient thumbdrive.

    Just because YOU "can't imagine why" doesn't mean that others aren't interested. If you have no interest, skip this thread and take your washing machine elsewhere. Why the hell would I want to use a thumb drive when I already have all my music on my IPad? Thanks for your input, but if you can't answer the question then skip it.

    Oh, and FYI...I don't invoke God's name in reference to my Ipad.

    I would expect that from you, RT. You're such a whiner. I was merely trying to interject some humor to prove a point. But of course, as usual you're so damned sensitive. I'll drop off my washing machine, sewing machine and refrigerator at your house in the morning. Maybe you can hook those up to your car as well. I think you already know what you can do with your iPad.

    Go ahead and respond. We both know you ALWAYS have to have the last word.

    ok guys.... FIGHT


    but seriously...
    isn't all your music on your PC (or Mac) too?
    and isn't it fairly easy to just copy all you would want over to a usb key or small hard drive?
    and wouldn't either one of those digital storage options fit much more nicely inside the compartment than an iPad would?

    maybe you'd be happier with something like this:
