Phatbox options
« on: July 26, 2015, 05:42:50 pm »
My 2004 Passat is on it's last legs and after 220K miles its ready for replacement. For various reasons I am looking at the new Golf Sportwagen.

Of course VW no longer supports the Phatbox and I don't think an iPod will work the way I want.. though I will try to an old 64 GB iPhone with filled with appleLossless files.

So here are options I see...

1. iPod (this might be a temporary solution)

2.  Moving my old Monsoon HU to the new car along with my 60GB PB. (Not keen on this)

3.  Finding a used Kenwood music keg and suitable Kenwood HU

4.  Getting correct cable to reuse the VW PB with a different Kenwood HU.

I can't think of any other possible options. I need a station wagon and not an SUV.

Any other ideas would be appreciated

Hmmm... things are looking up in VW land...

"and support for lossless audio file format (Free Lossless Audio Codec FLAC)."

Will definitely wait for a 2016 model.
