    Hi, just purchased a GW100. I have a Concert 2 radio, connected it all up but nothing is working at all. Plugged iPod in and nothing, instructions say go via CD changed buttons but I've never had a CD changer. It's driving me mad, any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

    Does the GW100 have a loose black wire? If so you must connect that to the concert II ground. The Concert II will automatically see the attached GW100 as a CDC and pressing the CD button switches between CD & CDC.

    What do you mean is it doesn't have one? Maybe you can post a pic of the harness

    Connect it to the thickish brown wire that's in the top left - terminal position, marked as pin 8 of the 8 pin connector.

    Just as a test, making sure you have radio code to hand incase it doesn't remember your vin, remove that connector, temp push the black wire into the back of brown terminal/wire & plug back into radio, then test & see if works, that way before you strip/wire in "properly" you will know if this is the issue.

    Thanks Nigel & Craig, got it working. Thanks a lot, really appreciate the help. Was ready to throw it out the window at one point haha, one more question though. How do I access albums? It's all very complicated ha

    Never mind I've figured it out, quite complicated but I'll get used to it. It's times like this that I miss my Golf with the iPod armrest connection and RNS510 ha

    Any of you two know how to shuffle an album or playlist by any chance? Can't seem to figure it out at all, thanks
