Hi, newbie just been reading your thread as I'm buying a t31 and it looks like I'm in the same boat. Music audio over Bluetooth uses a different protocol which it looks like the unit in yours (and mine) don't support. Without a USB or aux the only other option would be to burn mp3's onto a disk which apparently it will read. Very old school, I remember doing that twenty years ago, don't think I even own a CD burner now!
It's been a while since your last reply, did you come to any conclusion?


Hi,

As covered in another thread, if you really want to keep the headunit, you have the option of getting an adapter like Yatour which plugs into the back of the headunit and gives you a number of different connectivity options. Since double DIN headunits are relatively affordable, with all kinds of functionality, including internet, GPS and the ability to connect a reversing camera, that's another option to consider.

The Yatour costs about £45-50.

Kind Regards,

Hey Newbie,
I went old skool in the end, a pack of £7.99 cd-r's, burner on my computer and away I went, each cd-r holds approx. 100 to 110 songs converted to mp3 depending on size.
Works a treat as the disc changer holds six cd's at a time and always easy to have a chop and change about.
It took a little bit of time, but music is just as good and works fine for me.
Look forward to building up enough songs each time to burn another cd-r.
I like my sound system and the navigation so till anything changes sticking with the factory fit.

works for me, got about a 100 to 110 converted to mp3 songs on each cd-r, you get quite a lot for six cd's.
