Multi-changeer CD - missing???

Post by Fatneck73 » Sun Dec 23, 2018 5:58 pm

Hi

I have a 2007 b7 with I believe RNS-E...but I can’t find the multichanger. I’m assuming it should be in the glove box?

Was this optional? Am I going mad?

It should be in the glovebox at the top, there should be a slot where it lives. Post a photo.

I’ve got one that isn’t connected anymore as I swapped my headunit. Give me a shout if you want it.

Cheers :thumbs:

The cd changer should be where the black plastic cubby is but it looks like that’s an iPod dock so I would assume it’s the MMI.

Or...any idea what ‘version’ of iPod I need to buy. Can I get a converter - summing to plug into it but then Bluetooth / stream from my phone???

That’s the iPod dock, so you don’t have a CD changer. Buy a tune to air device and plug it into the dock. Then stream your music via Bluetooth.

Bit daft reverting back to old tech really, bit like getting rid of your cd changer and getting a cassette player. If you still want a price I can give you one.

This would be your best bet.

Yep works well and keeps it all looking OEM. You can disconnect the iPod dock and plug in a CD player at any time. I don’t think it needs coding, but it’s been a long time since I did it.

Bovee (used to be called Viseoo) Tune2Air WMA3000A I think. c.£80 on Amazon. NB. I think that’s the right model code, but check before you buy.

Just to add to the discussion, you have a Mk1 RNS-e with the iPod dock. It was optional instead of the CD Multi changer. I’m pretty sure it’s not a case of plug and play to swap them. The cable from the head unit is different and also, I’m pretty sure it needs to be coded.

The Bluetooth dongle is by far the easiest way to go.
