    MP3 Player connection to HU with no line-in

    Hi all

    I've had a snoop around the forum, and although the topic may well have been covered I did'nt recognise it as I'm a newbie to car audio.

    In short, I have a Toshiba Gigabeat Mp3 DAP that I want to connect to my Vauxhall Zafira HU.

    In my other car I just use a Digi/analogue converter cassette, but in the Zafira I only have a CD player.

    The HU is a VDO CD441XED and I have attached a picture of the (din??)connector block at the rear of the cradle. I was hoping to find a Line-In connection, but alas not.
    So, is there any way to get my DAB play thru my HU??
    My wife would be sooooooooooo impressed

    There could be a cd changer to Aux in converter available for your HU. Try searching google and/or contact the manufacturer of the H/U.

    You could hack the headunit like I did. I tapped into the audio lines just before the tone/volume/balance control IC and switch it over with a relay under the control of the PC.
