Thanks to Nath we can safely say this can be done provided you have the hardware and someone who can be bothered to use IDS rather than fobbing you off with crap like 'it can only be done from factory'

Oh and my personal highlight.... SPOTIFY WORKS OVER STREAMING inc track display!!! Oh I'm happy. Now to find a cheap module :)

This is for anyone who commented or took an interest in that mammouth 'USB can it be done' thread. Get ringing scrappies and talk to nath.

I'm gonna write to Spotify and ask for commission after getting you to keep your subscription,,, ;)

So, yeah peeps, it is possible with a new module, wire, fascia plate & willing Ford/personwithFordhardware :)

wow! sounds awesome!

When you say 'fascia plate', I'm assuming you just mean the little bit where the 3.5mm jack is?



If you don't mind me asking, how much did this cost you?

Correct, it's this bit

From Ford it'll be around 350 for parts alone - you need to ring scrappies (though good luck, I rang 50 this morning before I found one!)

I don't see why not :)
