Adding USB to a MK7 with Bluetooth

312 posts in this topic

Do you mind if I ask how much it cost in total? I've been wanting to do this for ages, I also want to add a USB port to the glove box do I can mount a galaxy tab in there.

YES!!

Mine is now up and very definately working. It took no more than 40 minutes, if that and it works a treat. I'd happily post pictures but don't know how to.

Seriously - I have no hesitation in recommending iNath - i've just sat for the last hour testing it all out, bluetooth works, ipod dash display works, steering wheel controls work, Ipod charges up and it all looks like a factory fit.

For the amount of hours I drive, it was a small investment worth paying out in my opinion.

:D

In theory, should be proven next week when I'm looking to do my 2nd install.

In the code I know that '60' = '1.6 90PS' (even on the 95 model) and fuel type '02' = 'diesel', I need to figure what the code is for a 1.4.

The hardware part easy take 30mins... but you will need someone who have IDS to do the software part.

No it's not possible, the module has to be replaced.

First question is to asking if they have any new shape Fiestas

Then if any of them have USB down by the gear stick

Then describe the location of the module under the glovebox

I tried 50 and I only found 2 that were bothered enough to check.

Hi, I am also interested in upgrading my Fiesta Sport Van 2011 with a USB connection. It already has bluetooth and the single Aux connection. I would be willing to travel a few hours to have this done while I wait if anyone is interested? Cheers! :)

I have a 58 Fiesta Zetec which came with factory fitted blue tooth and handsfree but not USB.

What do I need to look for if I want to add USB to my car?

Ive been watching this thread in the background for a couple of months now n im still slightly confused.

To start, I have a Style with AUX only, base model module n cd player, no bluetooth n voice control etc.

I just wanted USB connection at first, but now want everything!!

So im gunna be starting from scratch!

I have bought:

- The 8m5t-19c112-AM module.

- Higher spec multi line matrix display.

I know im knowhere near the point of fitting.

I hear that there are 2 different types of loom pre/post 2010, this also mean the stereos have different connections.

My question is.. before i start stocking up on parts...

Is the 8m5t-19c112-AM module pre/post 2010 or can it be used on any? is the connector port different?

Does the audio loom connect to the interior loom atall or is it sperate?

Right! So i still need:

- CD player with keypad

- Interior light with microphone

- Indicator stalk - left or right?

- Loom pre/post 2010?

- 2 cables that attatch together for USB

- USB port (near gearstick)

- AUX + USB faceplate (near gearstick)

Anything else atall??

Finally, is there anyone in the northwest that can sort out the IDS software? preferably someone who has done it previously? I dont really want to go to Ford as ive read people having problems.

Although i dont really mind travelling, aslong as everything works fine afterwards.

At the same time as activating USB, Bluetooth, voice control etc, can my rear speakers also be easily activated?

Any help atall will be much appreciated!!

Thanks, Callum

Is the 8m5t-19c112-AM module pre/post 2010 or can it be used on any? is the connector port different? This module has 2 types of USB connection depending on when it was made. Please post a photo so I can advise on which cable you need. The module will work with all years of Bluetooth stereo.

Does the audio loom connect to the interior loom atall or is it sperate?

Right! So i still need:

- CD player with keypad

- Interior light with microphone

- Indicator stalk - left or right? Left, must have built in voice control button

- Loom pre/post 2010? - depends which stereo you buy as to which loom you need. The stereo fronts will be the same (although newer ones have letters on the number buttons similar to a mobile phone layout) but the back of the CD player has either 2 connections in the middle (pre-2010) or a single connection on the left (2010 onwards)

- 2 cables that attatch together for USB - depends which module you have, the newer ones with same model number (8m5t-19c112-AM) only need one cable

- USB port (near gearstick)

- AUX + USB faceplate (near gearstick)

Anything else atall??

Finally, is there anyone in the northwest that can sort out the IDS software? preferably someone who has done it previously? I dont really want to go to Ford as ive read people having problems. Cartune in Liverpool has an IDS if that helps?

The module you have is the older AM type and does require the 2 cables you mentioned earlier for USB.
