SA told me that if you are using a current generation iPod touch/iPhone then the cable that has both a USB and AUX plug isn't necessary. I use a iPod Classic so needed the USB/AUX cable.
Have you tried your iPod classic with a normal white USB lead? You have the tech package so it should work with just USB regardless of which generation it is. My 2 year old iPhone 3G works fine with just a white USB cable. Sounds like more dealer bullsh!t to me

OK, I'll say this one last time for people who haven't been listening....

THE Y CABLE IS FOR CARS WITHOUT NAVIGATION OR TECH PACKAGE. IF YOU HAVE A CAR WITHOUT NAV, YOUR CA WILL NEED TO GIVE YOU THE Y CABLE FOR YOUR IPOD/IPHONE TO WORK.
PHEW
I'm sorry, could you repeat that...
