AUX Input

Hi Guys,

I'm new to the forum and was hoping you would be able to help me out.

I currently have a Type S 2008, and I am looking at fitting an AUX input. I've read a number of threads regarding different options such as the Connects2, Xcarlink etc.

Which option would be the best?

Also does the Connects2 (CTVHOX001) work with the 2008 model as some people say it does and others say otherwise?

Thanks

Hi, and welcome

If you're after ONLY and AUX in, and nothing else, the Connects2 unit is the way forward. There are only a few incidents where it's not worked for people as far as I can see.
Be aware that using AUX only you have no control over the tracks from your steering wheel controls.

If you're after more than that, such as USB/SD card functionality, or a more integrated solution for iPhone, then go for the Xcarlink.

They both connect to the head unit in exactly the same way. Not sure if you have a model with sat nav or not, but if so you'll need the "Y" cable too.

Thank you, I don't have the model with the sat nav so that shouldn't be a problem. Think I am going to purchase the Connects2 and see how it goes.
Thank you again!

I got one and fitted it in about 90 minutes and it works flawlessly for what it is.

Dunno mate, didn't bother looking at the sticker. Is there any way to find out by looking at it in situ or by button pushing?
