What are my option if I wanna upgrade my car with USB and bluetooth streaming?

Post by TodiCroitor »

Hi,
I have a 2009 C5 and by default I have only AUX inputs but I would love to have the option to stream via bluetooth or even USB and also a way to show the track on the display?
Does anyone have done that? What would be my options?

Thanks a lot guys!

HI Dani

As you have the MyWay system (I moved your thread to the telematics section for MyWay). you'll be aware that bluetooth streaming is not supported.

The only option is to either purchase something like a DAB unit with bluetooth support that can them transmit MP3 music from your phone or the built in SD card to the car's head unit via FM transmission.

Or you could get something like a Yatour unit that are available in different options that work similarly. The Yatour system only works via mimicking the CD Changer, so can only layout folders like CD1, CD2 to CD6 etc. and then the individual music files need to be copied into the folders.

So there are several options.

Here's the sort of thing I'm talking about that would give you DAB radio too:

Both these provide DAB radio and Bluetooth music - there are lots of variations and connection options.

The RT6 Head Unit also supports bluetooth music streaming, but may be a more expensive option, as you would need to also upgrade your colour display unit with the High resolution version to be compatible.

Does myway with cd-changer support cd-text as does the internal cd-player on myway? If so, I wonder why Yatour or some other usb-bluetooth-box doesn´t support track titles?

No only the cd text for the main player in the Head Unit as you say.

Thanks Mark,
I’m thinking of upgrading to rt6 I have to see what would be the most adorable option, a 3rd party solution an actually rt6.
From what you know how can I identify an rt6? From my searches on google they seems to look the same as myway unit.

Hi Dani

The RT6 does look very similar, but the MyWay (RNEG) has an SD card Slot, whereas the eMyWay (RT6) does not.

Remember you will need to upgrade the colour screen to a DG4 Hi Res screen too.

Also bear in mind the bluetooth streaming on the RT6 is in my view poor, because it only shows the connected device not song/album info like better head units. It does let you change tracks though!

In that case I would go with a bluetooth receiver with audio out connected to the AUX. You'll be able to skip tracks from the receiver and will avoid the problem of RF interference by using the AUX input.

Search for Bluetooth jack device (Search for one without battery and plug it to constant 12v)
Or FM bluetooth transmitter..

Yeah that's the one I was looking for using, I was looking for a way to having it powered without having a cable to the lighter but I can't find an easy way for that

What im going for its pretty simple.
Find a AUX BT box with connection for 12v and wire it to lighter or something.
Hide it on glovebox, and it will be always powered and hidden.
I have found some stuff over aliexpress but still gotta think about it

Yatour bluetooth box for RD4 works just fine. You can skip tracks and installation is plug and play.

Re: Lexia? Diagbox?

Post by concon255 »

Hello,

Sorry to bring up an old thread; I'm new to the forum and looking for a bit of advice.
I have recently bought a Yatour BTA to install in my girlfriend's car. I know how to install it, however I understand that I need to use Diagbox to enable the auxiliary cd changer port. Could someone advise me if this is true, and if so, can someone point me in the right direction on how to get it coded?

My girlfriend's car is a 2011 Citroen C3 with Myway and I'm based in Buntingford, Herts.
Thanks!

If the MyWay system was not shipped with an optional CD changer (likely), then the function has to be enabled in the customer options or RNEG ECU configuration. The option you are looking for will be "CD changer or USB BOX" or similar and setting it from 'absent' to 'present'.

Typically you will need a somebody with Diagbox software and a VCI to do this.

Update on installing the BTA receiver:

Installation of the BTA receiver went fairly straightforward; it was a bit of a bugger to take the radio out, but once that was out it was a simple plug in job.

A very nice member called MickTheMaverick came to program my girlfriend's car yesterday using his Diagbox. Unfortunately, we had a fundamental issue where the Diagbox would not recognise the car at all. We tried to see if there was a potential issue with the Diagbox, however we plugged it into Mick's C5 and had no trouble recognising the car and reading the VIN number. There was possibly one attempt out of over a dozen where the Diagbox 'might have' recognised the car, but we can't be too sure (it looked as though it recognised the VIN at one point, but not certain).

Would anyone have any reason/information on why the system is not recognising the car? Mick's Diagbox unit is using software number 7.62 and uses a later version of the hardware unit.

TIA
