Re: Conection for i-pod or USB


Hi

My XTrail is only a few weeks old so I havent started to explore the CDs yet but I will on the weekend when we have to hit the road for a nice 200 km cruise... cant wait.

I have a T31 TS and the CD player is compatible with CDs with MP3 or WMA formats. There isnt a jack to plug in an MP3 player. I had a look around and explored the manual but there is no mention of a MP3 jack on any model. There is only a mention that when using a CD with MP3 or WMA format, when changing tracks, the folders will display.

The other half thought it had a jack as the salesman said you could play MP3s .... but what wasnt mentioned was MP3 music burnt to a CD.

I hope this helps ....

Re: Conection for i-pod or USB


Here in France MP3/WMA CD are supported only by the head units which include a GPS satnav. Even on this high end model there is no USB port or Aux plug.

I use an FM transmitter which has an USB port for flash ram keys and a jack for mp3 readers.
Works fine, as long as U select an FM frequency with low interfering signals.

Some people on local forums have replaced the orignal head units with commercial models which provide such interfaces and are compatible with bluetooth mobile phones.

Re: Conection for i-pod or USB


Gday,

If you have around $120 to spend, the Belken TuneBase is a good unit. It plugs into your 12v cigerette input and has a flexiable arm which the Ipod unit sits in. It is designed for all models of Ipods with interchangable plastic holders.

Sound quality is not too bad and the cool thing about it it searches for clean FM frequencies to tune to so you can set the Exyies FM receiver to the units display frequency. I use it all the time and love it.

JB HiFi have them if your interested.

cheers.

posticon Re: Conection for i-pod or USB


For those of you who are tech savvy - this may be of some interest. I can't remember where I found it though...

I myself am useless in this area, although my friend managed to understand and produce a cable from the following that plugs into the stacker (8 pin din) input. Works a treat!

He is going to see if he can also make one that will control the ipod from the head unit.

Much cheaper than buying a new head unit!!!

------------
I have obtained the pinouts for the input. It is a 8 pin din. Used for CD changer.

1. Rch-
2 Nc
3 Rch+
4 Combi on
5. Lch+
6 Aux on
7. nc
9 gnd.

I used 3&5 as L&R input. Joined 1&7 as gnd. Conected a 1k resistor and momentary switch between 4&6 (appears to need a pulse) and connected to a 3.5mm audio jack.
-----------

So if you can decipher that - I can confirm it works!

Re: Conection for i-pod or USB


With teenage kids it is near imposible to not look at these mods.
My daughter has a unit we got at the Apple shop. One unit runs on the iPod battery, the other charges the iPod and runs on cig lighter output. Both have a function where they find a good frequency to transmit.
 The cheapies on eBay were all rubbish, low output, poor quality.
When i get brave I might look at making an interface for mine, did this on another radio and was able to mount the input on the front face so that it disconnected the radio CD and played from this input.

Re: Conection for i-pod or USB


If you do make something, make sure that the ipod plugs into a USB input and not a 3.5mm jack.
This way using the USB, it charges the ipod as well as plays its music.
The 3.5mm jack will only play the music and will not charge the ipod.

Means more room for other things in the power socket.
