Hi there fellow mondy owner

I have a zetec spec model with various titanium extra's included...
one of which is the convers+ display system.

The car came with the ford rds 6006 with a aux in port in the glove box but no USB port. if the car was fitted with the sony dab unit it would have a USB port in the glove box...the sony , convers+ and steering wheel controls all work as one and work operate a USB device..
..
it is unusual for the zetec to be fitted with the convers+ , so my question is??..

is there a hidden USB port somewhere in the convers unit where i can plug a USB toggle stick , because the USB port that would of being in the glove box must plug into something????

from what picture's of the sony dab unit i have found online , there does not appear to be a USB port on it , front or rear.

if you are now completely confussed please sit down and have as stiff drink on me.. B)

Welcome to the forum,
when you get a momment join photobucket and upload some pics of your motor,
then copy the URL address from the pics and paste them in your post on here so we can see it.

Id love a stiff drink,
instead im stuck at home on a saturday night with the laptop,

have you checked in the centre console mate?

and also are your footwell lights working or do you know about them ?

My Titanium X (60 plate about 5 minutes before they fitted the daytime running lamps) has the Sony DAB Radio and only has an AUX 3.5mm audio jack in the glove compartment. i was hoping for the USB too - but I could only find mention of that in the radio that has the Sat Nav built in...

Works great with my daughter's iPod touch, where #7 on the volume is deafening, but my Samsung Galaxy S2 needs to have the radio cranked above 20 to get decent sound. V annoying!

Hope this helps...
Chris


incidentally, I'm impressed with the DAB, but I'm sure in FM mode Sony have made it sound crap on purpose!

Hi Chris

I found a few answers to this subject in the s-max section . There is a subject on there titled convers+ , lots of information and one users reply was most interesting........
To implement the USB port you need to upgrade the bluetooth module in the car to the later version & buy the additional wiring looms.
The USB wires to the bluetooth module, which in turn wires to the radio headunit.
You also need a radio with a sufficient firmware version to support the new bluetooth module & USB connection....end quote

I haven't tryed this myself yet but instead of using the aux port the play music you can use the cars bluetooth to play tunes of a iphone/other smart phone maybe?? .my friend does this on his s-max which has alot in common with our mondeos

cheers amigo ;-)

Hi

I have a 2010 Mondeo Titanium X and had the same issue, Even though advertised in the spec I only had a 3.5mm aux with the sony head unit and the USB was blanked out, However bluetooth worked with my Iphone 4. sales staff at fors garage useless. asked a guy in the Parts dept for a sloution. He kindly told me that the USB plug is part of the standard wiring loom and as such is behind the glove box. The USB socket was £2.70. I removed the glove box and found the USB plug neatly plugged into a blanked point on the left side of the glove box. I cut out the blank clipped in the USB and attached the plug. Connectede my Iphone and perfect now I have integrated Iphone.

Hope this helps.

Hi,
This forum has been extremely helpful. I have a fird mondeo titanium 59 plate. My Sony 6 cd player often says 'unknown' when someone calls me on my phone through BT. Checked my iPhone and it's not that. After some searching found I might need to update my radio. But Ford website says thrust can do this through USB port. In my Car i can inly find an AUX point. After looking at this helpful thread I pulled out the glove box and found a 6 pin plug. So then I contacted Ford online to ask them where I could buy a USB port from to attach to this. They said they make no such part?! But when I read above a couple of people said they have brought the USB port, so could I ask where you brought it from.
Thanks for your help :)

You guys have really got me interested, I too have only the aux port in the glovebox - or so I thought!
So presumably if I get the 6 pin to USB adaptor and then the usb/jack cable (£8.99 from amazon) to iPod cable I would have complete control over my iPod from the steering wheel.

Where can you buy the USB to 6 pin adaptor and what is the part number if anyone knows it?

Thanks - in eager anticipation

Stuart

Hi

Realise I'm replying to an old topic now - but I bought the USB connection 1543450 and the back of it looks like you plug in a female USB cable and not the 6 pin plug I have exposed from the side of the glovebox. So I appear to be short a piece of wiring or adapter - any thoughts?

Also bought that bezel and can't work out where that would snap in?

help?!
