WTF with the AUX input


So I guess run an AUX cable from the trunk up to the front somewhere like the glove box or console? Where is the actual AUX input go?

so

a lot of bmw's have this wiring already run from the trunk area -> the factory head unit which is put there for BMW's six disc CD changer. (whether or not the car shipped with the changer.)

I'm buying all of this junk so that I can keep my factory head unit, and add bluetooth connectivity. It is WAYYYY way easier on slightly more modern BMW's, ("E46 era" I guess) you can buy like... one $20 sweatshop cable and achieve the exact same result that I'm hoping to get.

But - - Fattofat, why didn't you just buy a new head unit?

$120 or $130 I spent on this would have gotten me a $90 mexichromed purple LED hot neon pink translucent head unit and the $10 or $15 scosche harness for it. It'd stick out like a sore thumb, it'd make my car a more attractive target for thieves, and I was also pretty worried that ther'ed be some problems with the factory amplified sound system (though, I did zero research to confirm this.)

no... I get all that. I considered buying an AUX kit myself. Where is the actual input jack located?

oh derp

I think yours is E46 so you might actually just be able to buy the iPod kit or the sweatshop cable for $20.

it's two wires, one has a 6 pin connector one has a 3 pin.

I took this pic before I realized what these two wires were... Was gonna make a thread and ask but then I pulled on em a bit..

Maybe I'm derping out also.


I am assuming you aren't going to put your MP3 player or whatever in the trunk and pull over every time you want to change songs or playlist, right? Since you don't have capability to use the head unit controls as you would with an actual CD player, the MP3 or whatever device would need to be in the cabin, right?

Ohh no.

The Kinivo bluetooth device will be somewhere in the cabin. I want to use the controls on IT to handle track forward/play/pause etc. I am hoping that my cellphone will pair with it automatically each time I enter the car, I'll maybe just have to launch whatever streaming radio app I want to use.

the aux adapter, the ground loop isolator will be in the trunk, tucked behind carpet and plugged into the factory changer cables.

10' 3.5mm stereo cable will run from trunk area to the Kinvio thing... I am sort of kicking myself for going so long... The whole car is like 13 ish feet long and I'm only going through one little firewall.. lol
