    Very happy to share that I have found a way to patch a Aux in directly to the head unit in the Nav + Cd changer model. No longer need my poor quality radio tuner!

    More info to follow.

    This mod can be done for less than £10, it does however deactivate the CD changer. It could be possible to organise a switch between CD and Aux, but I didn't see the need for myself.

    Here is a video of the first test:

    The job is not easy and will require a competent person with electronics and a soldering Iron. If anyone is interested I am willing to make a full guide. Would like to see that people are up tot he task first! Comment if you would be interested in the Guide.

    Hey @nauest I think a guide will in really handy for members. I am interested because even though I have a Jazz, the headunit has a CD changer port so I am curious if the solution can be applied to it.

    I am usually one to make a good guide! I will see if I can fit it in, just wanted to gauge the interest and skill levels of people so I can make it appropriate.

    This mod will only work on vehicles with a built in CD changer or CD Player. The modification involved working on the PCB of the CD Drive.
