Easiest is to use a tethered FM modulator:
e.g.:

Clarion FM863 - only £24.99 inc VAT : Ray Smith Car Audio

Just need to plug the car antenna into it, plug it into the
stereo's antenna connector and plug your audio feed into
the phono plugs. Then just power it with +12V switched.

The additional switch is to turn it off if you have any problems with
normal radio reception.


I use one that read USB Keys and has an RDS menu system
for track titles etc:
Kenwood KOS-A200 external media controller with RDS encoder - KOS-A200 from Kenwood

presuming you don't have a CD changer, you can convert the CD input socket into an auxiliary input. this requires an adaptor cable; but not just a blaupunkt one. it needs to be modified to 'trick' the headunit into thinking a CD changer is connected; this requires 'jumping' a couple of the pins. in doing so, 'CD changer' becomes an extra 'source' (in addition to CD and tuner).

there's some threads about it in this forum; worth trying a search. otherwise, i can try and elaborate if you want (i don't know full details, so would do the same search myself, but may know what to look for).

not hard if you know how to solder and work with switches/electronics.

this link outlines the process. note that 'data-in' and 'data-out' terminals that needs to be 'jumped' (connected) to make things work. so you can simply modify a blaupunkt auxiliary-in adaptor by adding the switched connections.
