No easy easy way unless you have one of the following:
- FM - aux connector
- Dension
- mobridge

I got an isimple /tranzitblu HD. Basically splices into the FM signal of the radio, looks 100% OEM and you connect to it via phone bluetooth. It's the perfect mix of price and sound. Was about £120 all in whereas densions etc are nearly £400 or so. I fitted it myself relatively easily and i'm not any good at that sort of thing really.

I have one of these. It fits on the back of the PCM and replaces the defunct mobile phone card. Works by mimicking the CD player and plays tracks from my iphone's music library. Also allows hands-free voice calling.

Hi gurmot
That looks like a simple option, they only do them for pcm1 though,
Dension and mobridge look so complicated in comparison!

Looks great, I've got the CD-R 23 with multichanger and fibre optic cable so the Dension looks like the best option. You can get the complete kit for £197, looks fairly straight forward enough to install.

I think it just for the PCM1 https://www.elektronik-idee.de/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=62&Itemid=215&lang=en

May be worth asking them?

I've got the £13 one from e-bay. It's excellent for the money and keeps the car original.

I'm thinking of getting one of these, did you have to run a separate switched live from the fuse box?

Has anyone tried one of these for CD-R22/23?

I have tried one of the cheap ebay cables for connecting an iphone directly and it doesnt work. It will charge the phone, but wont connect the phone to the stereo. I want to keep the OE headunit, but have the option of playing music off my phone.

Me too, I think cost around £10. Considered the Mobridge/Dension but could not justify the cost. If I used the car every day it might be different. Doesn't look too bad.

One weird problem though. In my car if leave the unit plugged in (to the cigarette lighter) the bluetooth signal is so strong it stops the remote locking from working (it should switch itself off after the BT disconnects)

My longer term plan is to get an android auto/Apple carplay compatible double din unit

However OP, below Nulaxy KM20 is what I have and does the job.
