Standard Ed30 head unit.......
« on: November 26, 2018, 02:34:41 PM »
Hi guys, hopefully someone can help...
How can I get my standard head unit to play music from my phone?
Is there a socket in the read where I can buy a cable to go direct to my phone? Is there actually a aux option?
Thanks in advance......

It all depends on which radio has been installed and also can depend whether the Bluetooth module was installed etc.

Hmmmm ok, so is there an easy way of finding this out?
There’s no aux selection etc anywhere as far as I can see...

Take a picture.

Or do you have the radio manual?

You will need a Bluetooth module if I reminder right, which will also connect your phone.

I had the radio, but removed it for a RNS510, so I could have navigation.

I got some after market bits can’t remember part numbers as it was a long time ago, but if you search on here, google or bing it you will find the right answer. I think i used a Parrot bluetooth module with a module to connect into the car.

Unless you get the VW Bluetooth module, if you have the MFSW, but costs up to £300! I which I did after upgrading my radio. Wanted to go OEM.

Ok mate thanks. Don’t have the mfsw.
So the Bluetooth plug and play things on eBay etc don’t work?

Not really sure on which eBay offering your talking about mate, but do just a little research on it and I’m sure your have the information you need. Sorry I don’t have all the answers I would have to look it up myself.

Try PM Pashka on here pal. He's usually got RNS of various flavours for sale and is very helpful with advice for fitting too.

I managed to find my old Bluetooth, so have taken some pics of the model etc, but remember I’ve got the mfsw, so this may not be the right connector.
