    Is there a part such as these that connect straight to the HU to allow me to use my phone to play music in the car?

    I've got one of these Audi Seat Skoda VW - USB Android iPod Bluetooth kit [Grom-USB-VAG] : Carputer-Shop | iPod Car Kits | Aux Adapters

    It connects to the CD changer port on the head unit and pretends to be, well, a CD changer! I have a USB stick plugged into with my entire music collection on it. It has a bluetooth option but it's an extra cost but they do have their own Android Music Player app to integrate with it. A cheaper option is just to run a usb cable or an aux cable from it to your phone or ipod, respectively (via the centre console ashtray perhaps).

    There not the cheapest option out there but I managed to find a 2nd had one on ebay so all I needed was the VAG specific lead.

    Search "aux in audi" on ebay and there's plenty of cheaper, wired only options. You get what you pay for though!

    I reckon a CD changer connection would be best as this feeds the signal through the headunit therefore assuring best sound quality. My guess is that a quadlock is a means to piggy back onto the audio out lines of the head unit and probably wont be matched to you audio player.

    The unit plugs into the CD changer port with the wiring supplied and its very simple. Then the aux jack plug needs to be fed into your glove pocket or somewhere...i would buy a longer one as the supplied one is quite short. On the HU just press the CD button and anything on the aux line will play. It thinks you have a CD in so shows track 1 all the time.
