No need to connect Ipod to AUX. I used to connect my Ipod Classic to USB port and it used to recognize the device and was able to play/browse music.

Copy music in your ipod as you do in normal pen drive or hard disk. Then it will recognise the songs via usb. I doubt if it will recognise songs which are transferred in ipod using itunes as that's a differen format.

@rahul_kej - This won't work.

@gpriyesh - It seems your iPods filesystem is corrupted and thats why the XUV is not recognizing it when connected by USB. I use mine perfectly fine and it works amazingly well. I suggest you reset your iPod using iTunes and copy over your music again. If that doesn't work, try another cable.

Re: Mahindra XUV500 : Test Drive & Review

Could any XUV(AWD) owners can comment on their slush drive experience and snaps or video clips if any.. similar to one described on the Duster-AWD thread.

Has any one used philips xtreme vision or osram nightbreaker plus for XUVs low beam. Is it better than the stock osram. Your views are highly welcome.

I wouldnt recommend changing the OE bulbs to these above models because, their life span is shorter than the normal bulbs. IT IS a real pain to change those headlight bulbs. So, often you would be required to visit the service centre for that. Also , they dont offer a drastic improvement in vision. If you feel that the low beams are not bright enough, shift to Philips HIDs . If you are having problems with high beams, buy a pair of Hella 3003 .

Hi, Do you know where can I get Philips HIDs from? I'm looking for 4200K (or 4300K) Philips HID bulbs. I already have Philips ballasts with me.
THanks.

Thank you,

If I remember it correct, SDP got it via the group purchase for Morimoto that happened earlier, I'm trying to see if I get just the HID bulbs for Philips from India, I can make use of my ballasts, else I will go with the complete HID kit, either Osram, which is available in India or Morimoto that may need to be ordered from US.

Did you get a chance to check in JC Road?? Probably I might go this weekend, will check there and let you know if the Philips HID bulbs are available.
