    Default CD 30 External Input Jack

    Hi Fellow Vecciuns!

    First post so forgive this if it's a dumb question. I've searched the forum but not found this anywhere.

    Just got an 07 Vecci 1.8LS that came with a standard CD30. I notice (according to the handbook), some models have an external jack socket that can be used to plug MP3 players, etc, into the system(mine doesn't).

    I would really like to be able to plug phones, mp3's, and Ipaqs in.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to retrofit an external jack socket, I'm looking at that space underneath the CD30 as a sit for the socket.

    Appreciate any advise.
    Thanks guys.

    I'm looking to add this to the CD30 on the missuses Zafira, I'll try and remember to have a look soon and let you know!

    I wouldn't be surprised if there's two versions of the CD30 though, one with Aux input, one without...

    If you take the radio out there is a guide to tell you what the pins are there is a mono input on all but that is for aftermarket phone installs and needs a telephone mute to work

    Thanks D - that doesn't sound promising. I was hoping there would be a way of getting a stereo input. Oh well. Thanks again,

    Try a FM Wireless transmitter - about £15 - plug your MP3 etc. into the jack tune your radio to the frequency you've chosen on the transmitter and the sound will come through your radio - magic! and cheap!

    I hear a company in ireland is developing a cd version of the old cassette adaptor you put in in the slot and plug your mp3 player into that and it plays through the cd player ......

    I tried an FM transmitter and just like petrolhead and rob, I didn't have much success.

    That CD gismo sounds worth a look ....

    Just think that in this plug and play age there should be a way of hooking up into the 'in car' system through a 3.5mm jack socket.

    If it was easy for us to use hands free hookups with mobile phones less of us wouldn't be getting fines and penalty points for using mobiles.

    Sorry - I think I'm in danger of going off topic. Thanks again everyone.
