Nope, no conventional inputs at all just a unique one to VW. You can buy adaptors to convert easily enough though :)

Thanks Mirez, i checked out the link and then found a pic on ebay of the sat nav unit rear, the plugs on the adapter kit on ebay   don't look like they fit,   on looking at the rear of the unit on the attached pic ,   which is the cd changer socket that this kit is supposed to plug into.    thanks

Yeah it will, the changer plug on VW's is one of three plugs that clip together and fit above the power/speaker connector (the top of that black connector on the right).

This is the line-out cable but should give you a good overview:

i emailed the chap on ebay and he said if the radio has an aux function   then i could use a cable which he sells  which plugs into the little round plug   with 10 pins  mini iso  he called it   and was half the price
i have the mini iso socket   but does the  sat nav head unit radio  have this aux function ?
heres a link to the cable

Interesting, that plug is the video in connector but of course will also do audio so good shout!

It depends on the variant you have, the MFD nav unit came in A, B, C and G revisions (IIRC). C & G should have the connector, A and B I don't believe have. Although you can tell from the part number (shown in one of the menus) the only real way to check is removal of the nav. That said if its a factory fit then a 2004 version is more then likely a C.

No that won't fit, that's for the R Generation of navigation units. So it would be the RNS310 / RNS510. Your unit is one of the very first ones, an MFD1

You need a special tool :)

Look just in from each corner of the unit and you'll see small rectangular slots. You need to put a release key in each one and the unit then just slides out.

I have done what your trying to do but not plugging into the block style connectors,on the rear in the middle there is circular socket that's what I used.

Not sure but will check tomorrow on the set up it came from Germany.

hi  yes got the info on that but the set up was around 30    i found this on ebay for 3.00    Mirez reckons it will fit in the block connector set   so i hoping its here soon.
quiet a saving if it works via the aux button on the radio,  can't believe though when these cars were new   you coulnt have a cd player with the multimedia.
the kids sit in the back watching dvd with earplugs in but the driver has no choice but the radio   till now.
