Default PIE FRD04-POD/S

Hi, I'm new to the forums. I got my '06 Mustang GT last year. I've got the stock Shaker 500 system.

I've seen threads about the FRD04-AUX adapter but wanted to know if anyone has tried the new adapter, FRD04-POD/S? Wondering if there have been any issues like with Peripherals adapter or even the FRD04-AUX that I've read about (I have had some already, see below).

I've been using a Peripheral Gen2 PXDP2. I had run into the freaked out dash/electronics issue months ago and at that time Peripheral told my car audio shop to wire the power to the ignition, making it switched instead of constant. Well this works fine except I have to make sure I turn off the radio or switch to AM/FM before shutting off my car to get the iPod to pause, else it will keep on playing, running it's battery dead since there's no more charging while the car is off. This is too annoying and I recently found out that Peripheral has yanked support for this device and 05-07 Mustangs.

I am having my car audio shop replace the Peripheral with the PIE but we tried this once already the other day and the iPod would not function properly using the controls of the stereo. The buttons wouldn't work or cycle through menus properly. I emailed PIE and they said to power cycle the whole system, i.e. disco the negative battery lead for 5 minutes, and then everything should initialize properly. Can anyone confirm this or relatetheir experience with the FRD04-POD/S?
