ipod dock for V35

I have a built-in Bose system with a V35 console. It has an IPod dock with a proprietary cable. I am using an Apple adaptor to make this work with current iPod/iPhone devices. 

Two questions 

1) The console is in a rack in a closet, I ran the iPod dock cable out through a hole in the wall but it is in an inconvenient location. Can I get an extension cable (or specs to have one made up)?

2) Can I link an IOS device using Ethernet, WiFi, or Bluetooth (or even HDMI, I guess....) rather than being stuck with this "short leash"?

Thanks

Hi Beegu,

 

If you have the SoundTouch Wireless Link allows you to connect non-SoundTouch products to the SoundTouch application. You would also access the sources mentioned in your second post via the SoundTouch application. Let's focus on trying to get the SoundTouch Wireless Link attached to the SoundTouch application.

 

Curiously, when you are going through the initial setup process using the SoundTouch application, were you currently connected to the SoundTouch Wireless Link via Bluetooth? If so, disconnect the Bluetooth product and try once more. If the issue remains, try to factory default the SoundTouch Wireless Link and then try the setup once more. We have instructions on how to do so HERE.

 

Let us know if that helps!

Re: ipod dock for V35

Hi Beegu,

 

There are no extension cables for the iPod dock on the Lifestyle V35 console, but there are a few ways to connect your iOS device to the system wirelessly.

 

The first option would be to purchase a Bluetooth receiver such as the SoundTouch Wireless Link and connect that to the console. This would allow you to stream anything from the iOS device via Bluetooth to the console, as well as give the Lifestyle V35 the ability to stream internet radio services such as Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, etc. without the need of an iOS device.

 

Another option would be to purchase a lengthy RCA to 3.5mm cable to connect from the back of the console to the headphone jack on your iOS device. This would not allow you to charge the iOS device or browse the music via the Lifestyle console, but it will allow you to push the audio from the iOS device to the console.

 

I hope this helps answer your questions!

Re: ipod dock for V35

Thanks.

I got the SoundTouch Wireless Link, I am able t sream using Bluetooth from iOSOS and OSX devices.

I am NOT able to use the BOSE SoundTouch iOS application (nor the OSX desktop version) in any useful way as I do not have BOSE wireless speakers, which the apps try to locate as the first step in the setup.

You say I can "give the Lifestyle V35 the ability to stream internet radio services such as Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, etc. without the need of an iOS device."

How do I do this? I can't access the device using the app as I can't get past "find speakers" in the set up menu, is there another way?

Thanks

Tom
