    550/575 would support the latest traffic pro but it's an expensive option for what it is. I wanted screen based Nav so fitted an Alpine D511R with associated bits, works a treat

    Ok neither needs replacing to attach an Ipod wire as both should have CD changer capability

    The simplest is to plug in a phono lead - the next option is a non-charging Ipod lead - then a charging Ipod lead

    If the 575 stereo is the very late with square button along the top it might be compatible with the Becker Ipod controller box

    The three leads are fairly easily on Ebay - for my tape (Becker 4372) & cd (6104) they work fine but there was a thread a couple of months ago that some couldn't get them to work on the theoretically the same Becker units

    Typical thread http://www.clubscuderia.co.uk/forum/...with-iPod-lead

    I fittend it myself Tony, cost was around £900 plus VAT for head unit, Nav, bluetooth and ipod from a friend. If you are looking for somebody to do it talk to Carlo, I've used him since 2004 (he used to do (and maybe still does) Maranello's work, based in Virginia Water
