Cheap bluetooth streaming - External AV req

Post by barryrs » Wed Jul 30, 2014 3:01 pm

Hi guys,

Thought I would share my recent cheap Bluetooth music streaming solution for others as looking on the web didnt turn up much.

Total cost of the install was just circa £45

The parts required are as follows

1. Connects2 CT29AU02 lead. I got mine here - ... 1497.l2649
One thing to note is that there was a manufacturing fault with my first lead where the left and right negatives had separate pins when they should be joined giving you 5 pins to plug in.
Installation instructions are here - ... 29AU02.pdf
Although my layout looks different it was just a case of removing 3 nuts and 1 bolt and the whole cage lifted and swung into the boot for easy access.

2. Ipod to RCA including power lead here - ... 1497.l2649
You simply need to locate a suitable live and earth point in which to wire this in and connect to the above lead.

3. Generic Bluetooth receiver such as - ... 1497.l2649
This receiver needs a power source as the lead above and negates the need for battery’s

4. Generic CAN-BUS ignition generator as theres no switched live in the boot - ... EBIDX%3AIT

All in all a very simple install and works perfectly with my factory fit telephone prep by fading out the music when a call is received and continuing once the call has ended.

Well pleased :rocker:
