    Symphony II Aux/line in help.

    I know this has been covered but I cant find a definate answer. I just want a headphone jack input to run anyipod/mp3 player.

    Ive found 2 which look like they will do the job, but they have different wiring looms. Any idea which one would do??

    I got one of these a month or so back, without bluetooth:

    Works great with line in, and has the benefit of a USB slot, so a stick of MP3s in directoryies CD01..6 are treated as a CD Changer. I took out my glovebox to drill a hole so it could be permanently mounted in there.

    Can't really go wrong for 50 odd...

    HTH,

    HTH,
    Did this work with a Symphony II? It looks a nice box of tricks.

    Hi,

    See my sig... Mine is a Symphony II. It works great. You just press the CD button again, and it sees the MP3 folders as CDC1-6, where the internal CD changer is CD1-6.

    Have not figured out how to order the tracks yet though. It may be chronological order, but I have not tested that theory yet...

    Cheers,
    Alistair

    I was only looking for the aux in, but for the extra USB support would be nice too. I think I might invest in one.

    Thanks for the info.

    Just recieved the unit from China and fitted it in an hour.

    All I can say is, fantastic. Does exactly what it says on the tin.

    Cheers for the recommendation.

    Glad it works.

    A couple of times this last week, mine has 'locked up' and needed the USB stick to be removed and then plugged in again.

    I wasn't hanging around, so it may have shaken loose. I'll keep you posted...

    Cheers,
    Alistair
