I have a sl 500 edition 1 2012 great car but it wont accept

This answer was rated:

Hi, I have a sl 500 edition 1 2012 great car but it wont accept the ipod, takes everything else but when I go to media interface it just says " no device connected" yet it takes a phone, usb and cd's. I have renewed the lead for the ipod but no difference. Can you think of anything?
Hello,Ipod interface might need to be retrofitted. I can look the instructions up if you let me know the VIN of your SL. Best Regards,Stan

Hi Pete,You need the Ipod connecting cable A0028272104 to the media interface connector. It should work once connected via this cable. Regards,Stan
