I have a UK-spec 2009 Grandis 2.0 DI-D with built-in radio/CD player.
I want to play music from playlists on iPhone.
Either I can buy from SG Petch the BlueConnect Bluetooth kit, but there are no installation instructions, and I am certain that Blueconnect is not compatible with my iPhone 6S.
Better still can I direct-access the CD-autochanger connectivity and connect up iPhone?
I haven't found my answer yet, no.
Early on in this process, I was on the line with an expert called Greg, but I lost touch with him when I had login problems - he has had experience of this car before, and I was hoping he could help.
Please keep trying
Mitsubishi offered Blueconnect Bluetooth as an option when car was was rolled out in the UK, but they no longer offer a fitting service.
The kit I have seen on SG Petch website is the right one for my car, but I cannot find installation instructions.
The FM think won't work in UK - too many stations especially in the South of England where we are.
How is the radio removed?
If I could figure out how to insert a picture from file of mine, I would. Sorry.
My Grandis comes with the built-in upgrade radio/CD player. The player has no aux but plays MP3 CDs, and also has a facility for an optional CD autochanger, which is where I imagined making the direct connection if I could find the port for it - I imagine 13-pin connector . If that connection is doable, like Grom USB3, it makes more sense than FM modulater to me.
Ok, I deffo don't want FM Modulator now....
With the radio on, a neighbour of mine suggested pressing and holding CD button for a couple of seconds. I did, and AUX came on info screen, so I know there's a facility for it. So, I took off the gearstick panel and the radio/CD panel. Thanks for that heads-up.
The head unit is a Mitsubishi Electric DY-1ME8U4-T, s/n 8701A117. I answered at least one query I had by looking at the back of the unit - although there is a factory option for a 10-disc CD autochanger on my Elegance model (standard on the Warrior model in UK), it hasn't been taken up. But there is an empty 13-pin aux port. So I can do 13-pin DIN to headphone jack for starters...or, l need is something like this, I guess:
