My Focus has a AUX input in the glove box so i can plug my Galaxy S3 in and listen to music, how does this connect to that so I can still use it?

I bought mine on the 5th Feb, they shipped it on the 6th and I received it on 11th feb.

Its a very good unit, pleased with it so far.

The sat nav is very good, little complicated to begin with and I am still trying to suss out how to change the car cursor (its set as a red mini cooper at the minute which is not good when driving a black focus...lol) but all in all a good bit of kit.

Its nice to have an ipod charging with direct control from my head unit at long last. Also has bluetooth music streaming.

Did you go for the camera as well?

If you need any help with fitting etc (as the install instructions are a little brief and not perfect english) give us a shout as I installed mine at the weekend.

Hey guys yer they are very quick to ship as they have a dealer located in uk.
The freeview is ok till get into built up area because of the high building. I got booster with pack so I can't comment on strength sorry.

Gregg have been down motorway with satnav yet I Luv the way it shows you which lane you need to be in lol am not to fussed about red mini as I like it on the overhead view. You buying a reverse camera yet??

Hey liam, no not yet, only local roads, that sounds good will have to have trip around the 25 then!,
I'm impressed with the unit so far and the fact that it looks factory fitted. Not sure about the camera yet will maybe look into it, does the focus canbus send a signal when reverse gear is selected as the screen goes blank on mine when reversing.
