Installed my USB music box today - all worked well except the steering column buttons did bugger all and wouldn't change tracks :( Sending it back for a replacement as the steering column controls work for everything else bar that.

Thread revival time. Having been disappointed by the hu in the 57 plate mondeo I have recently purchased I am considering the options of second hand better equipped ford stereo. New hu altogether or one of these units. Like others on here I don't really want to change the look of the dash and I worry that a second hand hu could come with its own issues so this unit is most favourable. Is it true though that it will not work with ipods etc. Just wanted to know so I can get a memory stick lined up.

It doesn't work with my iPhone, but the headphone jack still works so I can use this aswell, you just have to unplug the USB stick to use the jack..

Cool thanks for that. To be honest the reason I'm looking at one of these is purely so I can use the steering wheel controls as having to look at the ipod if I want to skip s song is pretty awkward.

I thought the same,

But I've got so used to using the USB now that it's not really an issue...

Ok so after much searching for a picture of the back of my stereo with no success, could someone possibly confirm whether my style of the 6000cd has the cd multi changer output needed by one of the units posted previously.

Ordered one these http://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/ford_usb_music_box_for_all_ford_audio_and_navigation_systems_with_aux_button__f_1746768_c_420.htm

Are there any firmware updates you can do? And how do you do them? And do they add any extra features? Thanks. :)

Very good price for that unit.

No updates available for that unit.

I just plug an USB stick full of mp3's in and that's about all it does.

Sent from my S5

How have people been getting on with this?

Any updates out for it?

at £30 not too bad to get one now even if there are no updates.
