Title: Adding a CD Changer
Post by: Ticfan on October 31, 2008, 08:57:55 AM
I have just bought my first Jazz, a great little car, and would like to know if I can connect my panasonic 12 cd changer to the CD/radio player that came with my Jazz?
I have seen on another thread how to remove the radio which looks straight forward.
Thanks

Yes you can...removing the radio is the hard part though!

Just thinking out aloud....seeing as some new Jazz models come with a USB port (and can be added as third-party modifications), I wonder if in the future people will buy CD changers as a USB memory stick costs less then a tenner and can hold more then 10 CD's.

I just use a cheap mp3 player plugged into the aux port near the ciggie lighter. Got 8 CD's worth of my French lessons on it!
A USB stick would be handier though especially if I could download its contents straight into my head! ;)

You've got me thinking about that too!
I'll still need to get into the back of the radio though but I may just add a cable to connect an MP3 player rather than a CD changer.

With regard to removing the radio I found the following site http://www.xcarlink.hu/xcareng/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=19&Itemid=29
