Then a dealer or person with access to Ford VCM + IDS software with a few mins to spare.
If you have any questions ask away or PM me :)


Bumping this thread as 2 of those part numbers were wrong. Have included the correct ones now :)

How much data does spotify use though if your streaming it? Wouldn't it be more cost effective to store the songs on your phone (My phone has 48gb and I'm never going to fill that!)

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'll second the above - Nath did mine as well and it works a treat. I'm over the moon with it. :D

None. You use "make available offline" and sync over wifi, even if I didnt use this I've got unlimited data (truely unlimited, no fair use 1gb cap) so not an issue. Considering the additional cost of the 32 and 64gb versions this option is far better. I love not paying for individual tracks :)

Certain phones (mainly old Nokia's) can play the sat nav through the stereo including showing directional arrows on screen.

This looks interesting, do these parts work with the basic 6 button headunit without the nice matrix display? Or would I need to update that also as part of the retrofit?

I cannot say for certain but I believe you would need to upgrade those too.

Thanks, not having much luck on eBay finding a seller who knows the difference between the 2 units!

I have just bough a 2009 fiesta. It only comes with bluetooth and AUX but no USB. So i started my search to find out how easy it would be to add a USB port to my car. This thread has now given me a bit of hope!!

I am still strugleing to find the parts required but have sent a request through to fordpartsuk.com and hopefully they will be able to source the module and required cable for me.

what i really want to know is the level of dificulty involved in adding the USB port? Other that the required software update that needs to be done by ford is the rest of it fairly simple. i really miss being able to control my ipod from my steering colum :(

Last time I checked with fordpartsuk (November) the module was £313.45 (you're also looking at £65 for the cable, fascia and silver cover)

Thanks for this info! sound exspensive but seems to be my only option if i want a USB connection. What is the difficulty level in fitting the equipment?
