Finally Found my N-Tec

Can the satnav be retrofit on other cars? or do you need to run additional adapters and cabling?
Good question. I can't imagine why not. The bluetooth will need the microphone of course, and there must be a GPS antenna somewhere, but other than that, I suppose there's no reason why not.
 
I shall :)

One question. Sometimes, if there's a USB stick in when I switch on, I have to unplug and plug it back in gain to recognise it. Does yours do that? Not the end of the world I suppose, but just a bit weird.

Hi David,


No my usb has not played up yet, you could try giving the port a blast with electrical contact cleaner or wet a cotton bud with isopropyl alcohol and insert it into the USB port to clean out dust and any sticky mess. Wipe all around the inside of the port, including on the contacts

I'll give it a go. I suspect it's a problem indexing the files though... or with the USB stick I'm using.

Just a thought.... you may need the surround as well, as it's different from the others, apart from the later K12s with the non-sat nav bluetooth head units - which shares teh same surround. Let us know how you get on. I've seen quite a few connect 1 systems on Ebay.

Just cleaned the socket with switch cleaner... no improvement. However, I tried another USB stick and it's now perfect.

I think being an older, high capacity pen drive, it was probably on the limit for power consumption. The Connect 1 manual states maximum of 500mA. The replacement drive works flawlessly now, despite being larger in capacity.

Thanks.
