      FAQ? MP3 Player Integration

      I did a cursory search and haven't seen this subject authoritatively handled recently. Is there a satisfactory, workable, decent quality (at least FM-radio quality) solution to an auto MP3 player in the currently shipping volvos?

      Thanks,
      Paul

      Not yet as far as I know. You can use an FM transmitter but I tried two and if you are at all interested in decent, reliable sound quality, these are not worth even the 25$ or so that they cost.

      Is there any official channel we could pester to suggest such a device from Volvo? All they'd need would be a small CANBUS adapter which allows audio in, and, ideally, simple control of the MP3 player (i.e. track back/forward). Then you allow other after-market folks to make the specific adapters for the specific players.

      Or they could just make an iPod adapter.

      I particularly want a wired audio connection and control of the MP3 player from the steering wheel. I'm not so hung up on whether the rest of the HU buttons control the MP3 player.

      Here you go, see if you can get these people to get theirs working.

      Or make the design available to private indiv. to build on their own. I'd pay $ just for the design.

      This looks like the hot ticket - all they have to do is make it for the Volvo system.

      Not to rain on anyone's parade.... but the Denison thing is another audio interface. (see below). The HU-803 uses the Mitsu digital interface. If you look at home the trunk CD changer integrates, you'll notice but a single coax + power only.
