Hi all just thought I would let you know that I have just carried out the Bob Anderson modification for an Aux input with a slight change of my own for less than £14, yes thats right only £14. I would like to thank everyone on this site for all the questions and answers over the years which led to me deciding to do this. It shows that when either an expert or someone with the balls to give it a go, does it and then posts their findings then we can all have a go and prosper from the shared knowledge.

I wanted a port for my I Pod and also wanted a second port for my Garmin Sat Nav. I studied the instructions given on the Bob Anderson thread and decided to order the following parts from Maplins in the UK (suitable alternatives could be sourced elsewhere):-

1 off mini DPTT relay part number N04AW

1 off mini switch part number FH00A

1 off mini switch cover boot, part number JR79L

1 off 3mtr long 3.5mm to 3.5mm male/male jack lead, part umber L30BA (this was cut to provide 2 separate jack leads one for I Pod and the other for Sat Nav).



I followed the instructions given so that I had a switched aux input using one half of the cut jack lead and fed this into the bottom of the left fairing pocket where I can easily place and remove my I Pod.

I used the other half of the jack lead to make a second (non-switched) aux input for my Sat Nav (the plan is to hear the voice commands over whatever music input I am listening to). I basically connected each of the red and white wires to the feed terminals on the relay connected to the +tive of the capacitors C50 -C49, the sheilding wires was then connected to ground at J106.

I have found that the radio/IPod switch part works exactly as it should. However the 2nd (Sat Nav) input only works when the system is switched to I Pod (if on radio/tape there is no output from radio, only from Sat Nav). I suspect that it could be a polarity problem and will try swapping the red and white aux input connections over next week.

Anyhow for now I have I Pod input with Sat Nav as well and will worry about the radio working with the Sat Nav later on. Again a big thank you to those that posted the instructions in the first place.
