My alfa 159 comes with the Bosch/Blaupunkt 939 head unit and it has a 10 Disc CD changer in the boot. No USB, No Bluetooth, No Aux.
I want to be able to stream music via bluetooth to my car sound system, and I was looking for the least complicated way of doing it. So, after a lot of research, I came across this:
Gateway Lite BT | A2DP | Bluetooth handsfree calls
This seems to do what I want. Question is, how do I fix it?
I never use the CD changer in the boot, so that device is useless to me. So, I am wondering if I can unplug the cable connection to the CD changer in the boot and the plug that same connector into the Dension Gateway Lite BT product. Therefore, the Dension takes the place of the CD changer in the boot.
If it is that simple to plug and play the Dension Gateway Lite BT in the boot, that would be ideal. Then I can maybe do it myself and save having to pay someone to do a complicated installation for me like to take out the head unit and install etc etc.
Can someone who knows this kind of stuff help me by letting me know:
1. Is it possible to unplug the CD changer in the boot and plug the same connector into the Dension Gateway Lite BT
2. If this can work, how do I remove the CD changer in the boot? I took a look it and I can't figure out how to remove the CD changer to undo the connector. I don't want to pull out the boot liner where the CD changer is deeply attached to the boot and accidentally tear/break something. Anybody can walk me through it please?
3. If all the above is possible, would the Dension Gateway Lite BT continously draw power from my car battery even if the head unit of my car stereo is not on or engine is switched off? I don't want it to be draining my car battery if my car stereo is switched off. The reason I asked is because the CD changer in the boot can draw power to eject the cd magazine even though engine it completely off. I would not want the Dension bluetooth product to continually draw power even when not used.
Appreciate anyone's help on this.
