    Sorry just noticed this as well (I was too excited to look at the pictures!), sounds good. I'll have a look at the back and see what's needed for the aux cable but chances are I might take you up on that if there's nothing a bit closer to home (Oz).

    I couldn't get this to work though you have more information on your wee screen that I do (compass for example) so it's possible that the Galant is a little more kitted out.

    then youll have to use an FM modulator to get sound into your system. Its the only option for our cars, other than ripping out hte headunit. For the screen i used the bezel for the navi option that comes with the ralliart. It cost somewhere around $40 and my lilliput 7in fits in it perfectly, the only thing was that i had to put it upside down, so make sure whatever screen u use has that option.

    Ok, I'll go look to see if I can find that bezel. I might give Mitsibishi or one of the local dealers to see if they can offer an upgrade or have any ideas about getting a line in for audio. I really don't want to use an FM modulator. Not really the 'finished' product I'm after

    Thanks again

    bileave me man, i looked into EVERYTHING before i got stuck with the fm modulator also. with the higher end radio systems like the infinity and rockford you can hold down the cd button for aux, but for the regular ones you cant. I went to the dealership (i am friends with all of them) and swapped my radio out with 4 different cars. the only way to do it is to take the high end radio and get an amp for the speakers. your talking a good chunk of money just to get the audio. i used an fm modulator and tbh, the sound is perfect. no hum or hiss or anything. theres no other option though unless u replace the head unit with an aftermarket one.

    Well I've been chatting to a mate over here who just got an upgraded audio system installed into his ute. He got a small device (3/4" almost square) fitted as part of the system, I think it was some sort of controller, that had an MP3 plugin. He hasn't used it as he already had a line in on his head unit but I might see if we can give it a bit of a trial this weekend. Now this didn't feed into the head unit sadly so all control would be through the PC. The order was this:

    Head unit -> (assumed) controller -> amp -> speakers + sub

    Using this would mean that the headunit controls would be next to useless and I'd have to seriously think about whether it was worth it as I'd essentiall have seperate controls for the PC sound and the CD/Radio head unit sound. Which offends me greatly!!

    Does anyone know anything about these kind of devices? I'll try pull up a part number or some other info tonight after work.

    its probably just a separated line in to the amp. while nice to have for quick access, not really relevant for our use. i have a stock sound system, so no amp to connect in to, but if you have an amp already then this may be something to look into. but as i dont wish to spend that much money when our sound system are pretty decent stock. like i said before, i have spent a very very long time looking into everything, and the only solution is that FM modulator. it connects directly into the the FM antenna in the back of the radio and emulates the signal over an fm station. it really is surprisingly good quality.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure that's all it is too but still not sure about the FM until I have a play with it.

    Heh yeah I almost wish that it was a crappy sounding stock, then I'd feel more obliged to rip it all out

    the radio doesnt have cd changer controls?

    my pioneer doesnt have a proper aux in, but if you enable the cd changer controls and just stick the wires on the right pins in the back it works perfectly. they want me to buy a $20 adapter, i never saw the need other then it being easier.
