I've had the car for three months now and keep an iPod nano in the console. This past week, every time I tried to listen to the iPod, it would disconnect after one or two songs and hang, like has been reported in other threads. I finally took a look at the iPod this afternoon and found that the battery was completely dead! even though it has been plugged into the usb port continuously. I tried several cables and none charge the iPod. If this is by design, it is a HORRIBLE design. Why doesn't the usb port provide power out for charging???
What generation Nano do you have? I found that my Nano Gen 2 does not connect but my Classic does.
