I bought the clarion cca-750-600 cable for ipod. it has the 30 pin connector and rca cables for audio/video that will connect to cig. charger with a usb. I only got music coming out of the ipod and not the car. 2011 STS. I must need the 3.5 cable, right? also when i press the aux. key on the nav it just shows a video soft key on the screen but no on/off audio like someone mentioned before.
What's wrong here?

Re: stuck on ipod hookup
I seem to recall Apple installing a chip in their genuine cables that the unit had to verify was there and if it didn't (aftermarket cable) it would not work. Just one of the many reasons I sold my iPhone 3GS and went to Android.
I have a lexus that I use this ipod in regularly. I use a cord that has 2 headphone size plugs onegoes in the ipod and the other into the car. I then use the 30 pin plug to usb lighter to charge, and it works perfect.

Yeah, your not using the 30pin for audio in your Lexus. The above poster may be right, it could be that the Clarion cable you have will only work with a Clarion HU when using the 30pin...Just get a 3.5mm to RCA and call it a day
