Free the iP* from accessory mode 'lock'
Authored by: laurion on Jul 23, '07 10:51:16AM

Alternatively, the iPod integration kit in your car may have a switch to change the mode. In my Toyota Matrix, the kit has two modes: one as described below, where the iPod blanks out and everything is controlled via the stereo, and one where all the controls on the iPod work (direct mode). In my case, I much prefer the direct mode, because it lets me easily select the exact podcast or music track that I want, using a UI that was built for it. Then again, different head units may offer useable UIs; mine doesn't.

So check the manual for your integration kit, there may be a dipswitch you can flip.
