    Canbus chorus/ concert

    Hi.
    Currently i have a chorusII headunit (according to vagcom)
    Is this canbus equipped?.
    If it is, would it be the same pin config as a concert II (from an a3 8p)
    ...i believe all concert II's run canbus?.

    Regards

    Callum

    Yes, pin for pin, so straight swap.

    If it is Chorus II it is CAN BUS.

    Just ensure it's from an early 8P, as they moved from ISO to Quadlock connectors around 05

    Hi,

    UI got the radio, all seems good, ill hopefully fit it at the weekend when i have a spare 5 minutes.
    Can anyone confirm if this is quadlock?
    Also, whats the square yellow connector?. as i think mine on the chorus is round.

    regards

    (sorry about the pic size)

    No that's definately ISO. The yellow connector is the second antenna connection (ZF diversity switching lead using a Fakra connection).
    I think you can just ignore it as the standard round ISO connection handles the main FM/AM signal. The Fakra one only works if you have the antenna module in the rear, which you won't.

    Yeah but it would be twice as big. ie double din if it was a quadlock concert.
