The iMIV Classic is the premium multimedia integration unit for your Volvo. It has the capability to not only seamlessly integrate your iPod, iPad or iPhone but also opens up the possibility for an auxiliary device such as a portable audio- and video players, and includes a bluetooth audio streaming option (A2DP).

Classic -> Fully equiped unit, with additional Audio/Video-in and iPod/iPhone/iPad video playback on RTI screen.
iPod -> iPod, iPhone, iPad, every iPod/iPhone/iPad version, optionally a convertor harness could be required (30pin to lightning for example)
Aux -> every music device with a line-out / headphone connector (3.5mm minijack)
A2DP -> Bluetooth audio streaming
MFI -> Made For iPod/iPhone/iPad certified by Apple, this device contains an Apple chip which warrants compatability and optimal audio quality (full kbit audio range is available, the device is certified by Apple).
In an effort to provide a complete solution the iMIV Classic also has great features such as:
•Song titles, Artist and Playlist information on the radio screen
•Control of an iPod/iPhone from the radio or steering wheel controls (but still controllable trough iPod/iPhone/iPad itselves!)
•Automatic pausing and resuming of the iPod/iPhone/iPad when the vehicle is turned off
•Video playback from iPod, iPhone, iPad on RTI Screen (only if connected directly to 30pin dockport)
•Video playback from almost any device trough the available Audio/Video port (3x RCA of which 2x audio and 1x Composite video-in)
How does the iMIV Classic work?
The iMIV Classic is able to emulate OEM peripherals that were optional in Volvo vehicles.
By doing this the iMIV Classic can effectively communicate with the OEM Volvo radio, and utilize every feature available.
To provide the most complete solution available the iMIV Classic emulates two peripherals, one for the iPod, iPad or iPhone and one for the AV input.
The iMIV Classic is the only device on the market which is able to playback iPod, iPhone and iPad video's on the original Volvo RTI Navigation screen. (But only trough direct 30Pin dock connection).
Next to that, the iMIV Classic offers you an Audio- and video entry, allowing you to connect possibly any device like a playstation, dvd player or video-mirror device.
Currently the set is often used to connect "mirror-cast" (airplay) devices to it, being able to replicate the full smartphone screen on the RTI screen (using navi, watching video's etc).
To make the iMIV Classic set as complete as possible and to support a variaty of handsets/smartphones, a bluetooth Dock is supplied in the set as well.
The functionality with bluetooth has liberately been keept small, high quality audio (A2DP-3 with backwards compatability) and volume and fwd/rev controls, to support a largest possible variaty of phones for Bluetooth audio streaming.
Click dock on 30pin Apple connector, Pair, Play, enjoy.
(even with an Android phone, blackberry, Nokia etc.)
The iMIV will be supplied to you with the right firmware to fit your Volvo.
If you ever decide to move your iMIV to another Volvo, there is optional firmware available for our VolvoTech clients to adjust settings and options so the iMIV will work in that Volvo as well.
