    I'm kind of liking the 'Ditch the Autochanger and replace it with an Ipod' way of going about it.. Thanks for bringing that way up mate..

    I purchased my tape adaptor from Tesco for £6!

    I did the thing described on the 1st page today and it looks so much better without the wire dangling out of the tape slot!

    Thanks for this!!
     
  3. Very Good, Thanks ;)

    What volume are you keeping your mp3 player at? If you keep it just over half way and turn up your radio higher it makes the sound quality better, rather than keeping the mp3 high and the radio low...

    They are okay dude, but the sound quality is a bit iffy.. The tapes are much better.. But, is it just mine? Or when I play my music very loud, the tape tries to auto-reverse itself... This is the only downfall!!

    I get this too mate.. But, does yours try to auto reverse itself?

    The music stops, then you hear it do a clicking sound, and then the music resumes, say, 5 seconds later.. (Due to the time it takes for the tape to sort itself out.)

    it shouldnt be the tape coming to an end because there isnt actually any tape in the cassette?
    Think its just your tape bein lil bit dodgy?
    I know when i turn mine up too loud. It likes to cut out for 2 seconds, then comes back on.


    Anyhelp on the under £30 cd changer connecter thingy?

    Hi,

    Been reading the forums on & off for a while, but have only just gotten round to posting. The forums have already saved me quite a bit of detective work with the (apparently common) temperature sensor bug, so thanks to everyone.

    Just been reading through this thread with a view to adding an Aux In jack - I'm not entirely sure what the outcome was of the posts earlier recommending the Blaupunkt-compatible ISO connector? Do these spoof the CD changer correctly? Or are the Connects2 kits (or similar) necessary? My car came without the changer installed, so if I can get this working it would give use to an otherwise redundant button, as well as offering far better sound than the cassette adapters.

    Thanks in advance for your help,
    Jamie

    Problem is, them cassette things don't recharge the Ipod, therefore you have to remove it regularly to charge.
    I know this is about cheapness, but for a relatively cheap amount of money, you can grab yourself an Ipod compatible cable that leads straight out of the back of the HU and into the Ipod. You then need to spend something between £10 and £15 on a little adapter than downgrades the radios 12V supply to a 5V supply allowing you're Ipod to charge as you listen to it! Also allows you to use the CD Changer funtions just like having a multidisc changer.
    Good thing about these is, you can make them reappear from the back of the HU to almost anywhere on the car, i.e. under the steering column for easy reaching or into the glovebox for security.

    £74.97 .. for the Ipod carkit off of a website called Ipodcarkitdirect .co .uk .. I can't post URLs until i've posted 15 posts! [:@]
    I don't think thats terribly bad. Also try Ebay for a chance of grabbing an even better bargain.

    Hope this helps someone! :happy:
