I have a own a 2018 Honda CRV EXL. I have had a lot of problems getting my iPod Classic to play on my vehicle. Many times when I choose the iPod as the device, I get an error message stating, "Device Not Connected." I leave it in the car and connected all the time. Recently I have found if I don't turn the Audio system off, I am able to get the iPod to play without the error message. Also, it plays without all the skips that I have become to accept. What about the rest of you? How does your iPod work in your CRV? Hope this helps!

That is indeed a classic you have there. :)

Since Apple has long ago deprecated the classic iPods.... I would not expect the HU's in newer cars to play well with them. I would expect quirks exactly like you are describing. I also heard that Apple is in the process of deprecating all other iPods except for the Touch series.

Personally, I only have an iPod Touch and I tried it out when I got my new CRV and did not have any issues with it.

Do a search on this and I believe you'll find most people gave up on their ipods. I too have a classic that I used basically as a portable hard drive. I ended up just buying a phone with larger storage and the ipod is now in wifes older car where it plays just fine. Newer tech at the cost of older tech. Kinda like people.

I agree, find an iPhone 5 or so that has never software and can store a few thousand songs. You will be much happier.

I have not had these problems in my touring model (2018). To my ears, the ipod sounds better than my USB drive and is more functional. Have you tried either swapping the cables (if you have that option) or USB connection in the car. I seem to remember my android phone working better with one port over the other.

When this goes, I will probably go with an older iPhone. I have always preferred the inch wide connector to the single Jack (the difference may be real or imagined).
