    Hey gijijord did you have any luck with this? from all ive read on this forum - ipod/mp3 player via AUX in an AH astra is no go.

    Is it true about the RCA's on the back of the unit?
    I wouldnt know where to start on pulling the dash apart.

    So I rang Holden Customer Assistance and they tell me that there are standard RCA Jacks in the back of the stereo system. "All I need to do is" take the unit out and connect a cable - one end 3.5mm plug for the ipod/2 x rca plugs. Exactly how easy I suspected it to be!

    Looks like a visit to Holden dealer - they told me it couldnt be done (were they just being lazy - I can't believe noone else has done this before me).

    absolutely agree. I won a 145 won with "smartscan". still as crap as the rest.

    when good the sound quality is awesome and good on long highways, but roundtown u get all the random interferences and community radios.

    Also there is nowhere good to put it in the astra - centre console screws with the gear stick and on the seat.....well it dosen't stay there for long.

    Well, only seeing what options there are if your not gonna be able to hardwire it.

    Never said it was the solution. Click here to enlarge **** some people need to take a chill pill sometimes.

    Read on the pom site that if it's a Seims then yes. If it's a Blaukphant, then no. Thats with direct wiring from behind.

    SIM - Just looking over the Blaupunkt site now and found this information, http://www.blaupunkt.com/au/7607540500_main.asp on the iPOD interface cable.

    Looking over my Tigra manuals, it adopts the Blaupunkt system, so it may not work. I emailed them anyway, so we'll see how we go. But Im sure your right.
