It looks ok - but I simply can't tell you from here - I think as long as the software version is at least V.70 or higher = which others have said works for them.

Good news on the screen then :wink:

Ok, so for the standard Mic (which says not fitted in your 307 as standard kit), this is the RD45 pin-out for the MIC. I've used your picture and circled the correct block - channels are below:

Great, glad you have it sorted - almost!

Make sure you have the CDTEXT option activated / enabled in Lexia - it should be in the Head Unit Menu somewhere. Also make sure you have allowed the correct permissions in your phone menu. Lastly, I'm not sure if this unit supports 'Playlists', but it may take some time to build into memory the files. Try making an MP3 CD (only burn at maximum 4 x speed - no more and use Joliet to close the CD and see if that also works.

As for the microphone, is it an original PSA one or an aftermarket one?

Perhaps your microphone is too sensitive or in the wrong place for the echo-canceller in the RD45 to work well?

I think that the car user manual has some information on file naming for MP3 files on CD/USB to allow some folder structure (I don't remember the details).

That MIC may not have noise cancelling features - which is why I asked, so may be the cause of the issue.
