Try eBay. Or else try the standard VW iPod Kit which is now available - might only be for Mk5 headunits though.

All the uk dealers listed will only sell to uk residents and the irish dealer listed is trade only

They're retailing at £99 in the uk...

I am building something similar to that dension thing. I have it working and tested on BETA and GAMMA units, I will place the order for the board this week and I will have 3 maybe 4 ready for sale next month. If you are looking for info check my web site.
I should do the oposite of what they are doing and sale to ROI residents only... :)

i'm assuming that this will only work on BETA and GAMMA units and not with other head units, .ie Apline.

Have you any plans on making a unit for Alpine units?

Ah yes
The good old iTrip
They have made them illegal due to the fasct that they are an ulicensed broadcast. Very hard to get anymore. In fact if any one knows of anywhere pls let me know !

Quote from boards.ie

The use of any transmitter, including the iTrip, Belkin Tunecast, and other products to transmit audio on the FM band is illegal here and in the UK because under broadcasting laws, you cannot transmit an FM signal (any distance) without a radio broadcasting license.

There are some manufacturers (Belkin, for example) who are currently trying to get the governments to effectively change the law so that a broadcasting license will only be required if your transmitter is transmitting beyond a certain distance (5 metres for example), but until this change takes place, these devices (which can be legally bought in other countries, such as the USA and are not illegal to import to the UK or Ireland) will remain illegal to use here.

I saw a few FM transmitters (xtrememac airplay2) for sale at laptopcity in the St.Stephens Green center the other day...

I thought they were illegal as well, but it has not stopped this shop from selling them. The are easy to get on ebay anyway...

I bought a Airplay2 for my iPod a few months ago., works pretty good as fm transmitters go...

Cian

It works on few other VAG head units cause they share the same protocol. I had no means to try to build on Alpine cause I had none to test and try it. The Alpine protocol is different but I am sure that can be done. I just had no interest in it.
