    Hi Astrl

    Have a look at this thread as well as it shows you the back of the nit. You have the choice with the loudlink of either fitting it inside the lid of your arm rest or you can fit in the boot and disconnect the cd multichanger if you have one.

    Very helpful for me, even 7 years later! The explanation of the detachment of the NIT unit and the description of the connections ended my time-consuming research!
    A very big THANK YOU from Munich!

    Thanks for an interesting thread!

    I have the green satelite antenna signal, so I Guess I have a GPS signal. It even shows how many satelites it recieves signal from. BUT I don't have the CD With the map.... As I just bought the car, I still need to find out some small Things about it and this forum is the real source for me right now! So here goes:

    1) What map CD should I get? And where? and at what price? How can I get the latest software upgrde for it?

    2) My car has no CD changer. I like CDs to be honest!! I want a CD changer. Is this a special CD changer, or can I get one from a stereo-manufacturer?

    I also want my car to play my phone Music via bluretooth. I did some reaseasch, and found out that Alpine has a wireless unit that can be put anywere in the car, and plays Music from my phone and is a handsfree phone system when paired with the phone via Bluetooth. Since Norway no longer use FM, all radio is sent on DAB. This is a really pain in the *** because cars without DAB radios, will not play any radio anymore.... So this Alpine system does also play DAB radio. The wiring must of course be wired though.

    3) Has antone installed this unit?

    Miket has one of those in his spyder and he highly rates ot sure he will be along with his views

    Blaupunkt cd changer in the boot but the system is of the era where it is very sensitive to what type of cds you put in it and refuses to play CD-Rs only original CDs so it's useless to me

    Also the sat nav is antiquated, unless the roads in Norway have not changed in 20 years I would not bother the money time and energy into sourcing the CD unless someone happens to give it to you. You are much better off getting a nice looking magnetic phone cradle that clips over the vent and use waze or Google maps

    Do cars without the 6CD Changer in the boot still come wired for it?

    As others have said, the CD changer units are pretty fussy. Mine has almost completely stopped working in fact.

    I plan to replace mine with an mp3 player, that uses USB or SD card:
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Yatour-US...8AAOSwevdaGn9U

    (I have no connection to the seller, nor have I used them, I'm posting this link only to show the product!)

    That plugs in where the CD changer is, in the boot, doesn't skip like a CD does, and has no issues being read.
    I haven't played around with it much as I bought it to fit to my Fiat Panda, and only temporarily tried it in the Maserati to see if it works.
    I *think* it will only allow 6 folders of music (6 'CDs') with 99 songs max since the Maserati system only has 6 slots.
    In the Fiat it allows many more, but it uses up and down to change discs, not numbers 1 through 6.

    CD changer wise, there are a number on eBay if you search 4200 CD changer. They were also fitted to some Fiats, and I think Citreons, so cheaper ones can be found. I gave up due to them being old and a bit unreliable.
    As for fitting in the boot, again I don't know what the non CD changer cars are like, but the changer unit simply fits into a carpeted panel that velcros in place on the left of the boot.

    I believe so. I might still have one in the garage, but odds on it working now hover about nil, or less. It is a standard Balupunk unit and anything that pretends to be a changer should work.

    With regards to the Ebay bluetooth/sd card unit or the Alpine version....When making blutooth phone calls, can the factory microphone connect to these units, or do we have to use the ones bundled with them and re-route them near the rear view mirror?

    This one looks good: ???

    Having refitted the factory phone kit to my car, the factory microphone plugs into the car loom local under the headliner.
    I guess you could cut off the plug, and wire to the new kit.
