Default iPod help

My iPod worked fine in my e60 using my cord purchased thru BMW. It will play in my m5 but I have no display or control thru the car. Any guru out there for help?

are you using the Y cable from your e60? if so, you shouldn't be...you should be using the standard apple cable...

try the white apple cable...see if it makes a difference...

if that doesn't work I'm wondering if it's an OS issue with your early gen IPOD...what OS is on that?

I have the first gen ipod vid 80gb...I use it basically as my music HD now....the whole sroll wheel on it seems so outdated, lol..but it's still a solid piece of tech...lol
