I have an Essentia E6G system and I want to add the Nuvo iPod dock, using it with an iPod touch. If I download the Pandora app for the touch, will the Nuvo keypads then be able to display the song and album info?
How about the SiriusXM app? If I added Internet radio to my existing SiriusXM contract, would the same thing happen? Using an iPod touch in the Nuvo iPod dock, would the song info then show up on the keypads?
No, and probably not NuVo's fault, either. The iPod interface gives you access to the "iPod" functions (IIRC), not an "app control" capability.
Getting the audio stream off of the iPod/iPhone (regardless of the audio source) can be done - the Bluetooth bridge being the most elegant.
But for keypad control of Pandora, it's the MusicPort. If there is another device that has Pandora support and an API to pull the info, getting stuff to the keypads is possible... Haven't found anything that fits that bill for Pandora, though.
