    Heya Michelle. The AUX connection is on the car, not the phone. In 2010 version that I have, in the console between the seats there is three RCA jacks (red yellow and white). You'll need to get the cable from the Apple Store to fit this or a cheaper equivalent. It's got the male RCA jacks and a USB for power on one end and the old style Apple 30-pin connector on the other end. For iPhone 7 you'll also need the 30-pin to lightning plug adapter if you can't wait for the Coolstream duo to arrive. My advice would be to wait as that adapter is stupid expensive for what it is. The cheap fake ones don't work. Plug all that in the console. When the coolstream duo turns up plug that onto the 30-pin connector and follow the instructions to synch your phone to the Coolstream Duo. Whenever you want to listen to the phone just press the AUX button on your stereo head unit and play your tunes from the phone wirelessly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Actually found an elegant solution to stream audio in my 2010. Works with IOS/apple, android and windows devices. Still using the aux cable in the console, I bought a Coolstream duo Bluetooth dongle which plugs in to the old style apple 30-pin connector. Does a good job, doesn't interfere with the phone Bluetooth connection and you can pair a couple of phones to it to mix the music up. Conveniently also has a 3.5mm plug to enable you to turn any headphones into Bluetooth headphones. About $40 on eBay. Also, as a bonus turns any old 30-pin docking station etc into Bluetooth compatible meaning the old docks can now be used with the lightning plugged IOS phones. I should have bought 3!

  5. dodgybugga added a post in a topic Reverse Cam install 370Z coupe   

    Thanks to this guide (and that of Primusa) I did this a couple of months ago and find the reverse cam to be a huge help. I used the naviks unit and ended up hooking it up to a 2in1 camera off Amazon that has an integrated parking distance sensor (ATian Universal 2 in 1 Car Parking Reversing Radar Rear view backup Camera). You have a clear image on the screen till you get to within a couple of metres away from something and then you get the lines on the screen with a distance value (eg. 1.3m) As the distance decreases the colours of the lines go from green to yellow to red and eventually has a "Stop" prompt once you are too close to something (in case you are too dumb to know what to do otherwise I guess). It also has an audible "sonar" prompt. I recommend this camera as a cheap way to get both camera and reverse sesnsors on your car (and also without having to drill holes in the bumper). Doesn't look too non-factory either. While it's not ultra HD Tv quality it certainly does the job. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    This is tragic.
    Sad to see this. Condolences to the family and friends on their unfortunate loss. Always remember the street is not a track.... http://www.news.com.au/national/victoria/news/man-killed-in-melbourne-car-crash/news-story/791a351d1b95ac26ba78cfd711ed5314 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    That's worth a look. Thanks for the info. I wonder how it would go with the native Bluetooth pairing for telephone already in the car?

    That's what I thought. But 's post got my hopes up that I'd perhaps missed something. Oh well. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Is that supposed to be "can't"? Or is there a hidden way of doing it. I've got a 2010 and haven't been able to find a way to stream from the phone. There's nothing in my manual that suggests you can. Just use the AUX and a cable as roketrider suggested. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I was under the impression they were illegal (unless you get an engineers certificate).....?

    Tapatalk on iPad not showing feed.
    Hi y'all, Got myself an iPad mini the other day after I dropped my cheap Chinese android tablet and smashed it. Downloaded Tapatalk from the App Store and logged in. Set everything up but when I try to add Z Club to the feed so can see all new posts it comes up and says "Feed May not be available to small or private communities". Weird thing is it works on the iPhone just fine. Anyone else had similar issues?

  12. dodgybugga added a post in a topic Volant Air Intake   

    Just trying to rectify my ignorance as was thinking about getting some cold air intakes - do the coppers not like anything without an airbox? Would they ticket you for some "naked" K&N filters etc.? As for the original posters question they def look better than the stock air boxes but I wonder if it would be worth it. It'd be interesting to see if it did make much difference to the engine note or any performance difference either good or bad. Definitely subbing this thread for further info...

    Wholeheartedly agree.

    Agree.
  15. dodgybugga added a post in a topic Number plates   

    You'd reckon that if they had the money for such a rare plate, they'd have a better/more fun car. Thought about leaving a note to see what they wanted for them but didn't think the funds in my piggy bank would cover it unfortunately.
