.. the fire that is 'can I add USB to my mk7' debate that so disappointedly ended with a resounding 'no, not without lots of monies'.





okay so the last answer in that thread was 'if you have a USB port on the module then yes'. otherwise you're going to be spending loads on parts to get it working and then you'd still need a reflash and it may never work.






now i already have bluetooth voice control in my car, so i thought maybe... just maybe I could get this working as the bluetooth was an option that was linked to the USB option. I gave up hopes when read the thread and saw everyone's dissapointing replies.


That was until Ihad a good look myself. So this is what I found:



possible bluetooth module?

and this....

Could this be the port that illusively eluded many of us?







Unfortunatley I haven't got a USB skinny enough to fit in there so I can niether confirm that it fits a usb pen in or even works as a port. However could I be right in assuming that the cable that was mentioned in the mighty USB thread is a Ford specific clip cable that goes in and routes to the aux port area and thus this is the missing element in getting my USB dreams off the ground...


Answers on a postcard guys. Am I USB Ready?

I'll be very excited if it is a USB port, I'm so sad mine doesn't have one!

What exactly do you update with the bluetooth? Is it when a new revision comes round like, 2.0/ 2.1 or what? Can it add or enable new features?

i've had a look through the wiring diagram and this is port C3 which is labeled as usb.



just need to know if buying the usb cable would be a good idea or not as is this where it's supposed to go into?


anyone with usb care to take a look. no tools required to get this flap down, its held up with push pins... easy to remove :)

Ive had a look and it looks like USB could be fitted after all. The USB port which is empty in your's is in use in mine. Here's a pic..

have been having a chat with out master tech today and he says that the cable is around 9 pounds and that they can be bought by anyone, hes bringing it it to me tomorrow for me to get the finis code off of it and so we can try it in a model without bluetooth to see if it works, will updte you around midday tomorrow with this one, and if it does work ill do a bulk buy, seeing as i set the prices:P

ok, so who wants USB and is coming to MK on the 10th as im buying some of these leads as they seem to do the trick as i just unplugged that plug and bobs your uncle, my ipod was "disconnected" i will double check prices tomorrow but should be around £10 although it may need a usb plug for the other end for about £5, although if enough people want one ill do them for pretty much cost price

few questions that spring to mind...
1) what is the cables part number... me wants one!
2) would there need to be any re-programming done for the car to actually recognise there is an ipod/usb plugged in if you just have the AUX line and option on the screen
3) how do i fit the other end of the usb? and change from just the aux line to the aux + usb
4) would it automatically link to the steering wheel controls with it being a retro fit And on a lesser note voice command
