Sorry but I don't have USB, just bluetooth. There is no connection in the rear of the head unit that is all I can tell you I am afraid.

Great guide matey

Has anyone attempted taking the panels apart near the Aux port to see if a spare cable is hanging around for a usb port? Reason I ask is because I really want to do this to mine when I get it. (delivery thur)

Hey. Im not certain but I doubt it - As the usb provides a different radio unit 0 and screen for that matter which can interprit the data from a device such as an Ipod, so I doubt there will be a USB connection available - alhtough I could be wrong.

Celicas, yumm B) Steve, are you a member of any Celica clubs?? I was a member of CCUK, TOC, Jap North East, etc with a modded Gen 7 TSport. I'd changed her with some TRD, TTE, Blitz, Wings West, etc. Eventually I took it all off and sold the parts to the club. I'd actually like a late Gen 7 GT as a weekend car. Her she is:

Oh, by the way, congrats on being a new Fiesta pioneer. :) Steve, seeing you doing that to your car brought back memories of Perry190 in CCUK. Pezzer was da man in 'appropriate' car mods. RIP Perry :(

The USB is actually connected to the voice/bluetooth unit behind the glovebox and not the headunit...

Only thing with removing the screen is....its actually the screen/controller which "controls" the entire system.....and the security aspects of the system are in the screen and not the main CD unit....so removing it would make the entire audio system not work.

WARNING>>>>>......it isnt a easy fit.......wiring loom is differant and that is basically why you cannot get it retro fit...

Ive spent ALOT of time getting it all working and due to the screen being the security aspect of the system ive ended up keeping the orignal for now untill I get get to a solution....although is actually looks pretty good as it matches the needles...
