Kenwood Connection Assistance Please (HU, BT & Ipod)


Established Member
Any kenwood ICE experts
I have a headunit Kenwood XXV-01d
Kenwood Electronics UK Ltd. | iPod/iPhone & CD-Receivers > XXV-01D (details),
Instructions http://manuals.kenwood.novenaweb.info/languages/EN/support/manuals/XXV-01D.pdf

Ipod interface KCA-IP500,
Kenwood Electronics UK Ltd. | Leads > KCA-iP500
which works beautifully
The IP connects to the HU via the HU 5l Bus on the rear (only the one)
This is the same socket you would connect a cd changer to (but I don't or wont)

I now want to add to the mix a BT module (poss Kenwood KCA-BT200)
Kenwood Electronics UK Ltd. | Bluetooth & Antennas > KCA-BT200
Again connects to HU via 5l Bus. It also has its own 5lBus input, BUT unclear within any literature if I can connect Ipod interface to it, IE Ipod interface>BT Module>HU

Any ideas?
Or should I just get a parrot (how do they work?)
