Hey Guys,

I've really got the need to find out whats needed to add the USB to a MK7. I've got the bluetooth option but not the ipod/usb.

I am 95% sure the special ford USB cable connects to the bluetooth module under the glovebox and that goes to the usb/aux unit by the gearstick. If you got these 2 items would it just work or would you then need to update the HU.

Pleaseeeee advise

Many thanks

Jordan

I was under teh understanding it's impossible to add it to a Fiesta because the system goes through the cars main computer as it is also voice controlled. Adding cables as I understand it won't work, you need to change the cars computer too.

I read on Etis that you may need to download an update for the head unit and stick it in the USB from ECAT. I just need more light on the subject, surely it cant be that much hassle?

I know a few poeple added the USB to their Focus with BT, so it might be possible for the Fiesta also.

HTH :wacko:

In Ecat i have found the items needed, obviously the aux/usb socket... a cable from the unit to the bluetooth module, and it seems there are two versions of the bluetooth module, a non usb and and a usb one. so i guess you'd need the usb bluetooth module to. But if you bought all these items would it just work?

If you work in a dealership, possibly. It's the Autoteam magazine, Issue 5, 2008, all about the new Fiesta.

Do you know who developed the stereo system? Was it Sony?

Ive had a quick look at the bluetooth Module and it looks like we might need some special usb cable that fits in as its not a standard usb port - i guess they thought about people trying to fit their own usb.

Sorry I don't. Sony sounds feasible as they do the systems for the Focus and Mondeo I think?

for anyone who is interested. the bluetooth module is a: Novero 8m5t-19g488-am

I have poor quality picture of the connections on the back. but will get a better one when its not so dark outside.
the connection where the usb would go, is not actually a normal size usb port, its slightly smaller, but i believe this attaches to a larger plastic connection.

I don't think the 'audio unit' is made by Sony, rather it is a Ford own make product or possibly made by Blaupunkt. The sticker on the unit says "Made in Portugal", where Blaupunkt have a production facility.
