Hi,

Whilst I was having my HK Drive & Play installed for my iPod, I asked the car stereo fitter to connect my TomTom 710 to power from behind my car's dashboard rather than using the cigarette lighter adapter (just a neater solution). I also asked him if he could connect the audio output from the TomTom to my car stereo - so that instructions and especially usefully, phone calls could be heard from the car speakers (rather than the small speaker on the TomTom as I find this hard to hear on the motorway).

He was unable to connect up the audio as he said that he didn't have the relevant cable. He did however state that stereo in my car (the standard VW stereo in a 2005 Passat TDi) does have a mobile phone input that he would be able to connect it to and that he would come back and do the work for me.

Can anybody tell me:

1) What cable I need to connect the audio output from the standard TomTom 710 windscreen dock to the mobile phone input on my stereo?

2) Whether this will allow phone calls and navigation instructions to be heard over my car speakers?

Many thanks in advance.

Have a read through anrewcranes instructions in This Thread, it sorts out the audio routing of the phone to the aux output on the mount.
As for a lead can you be a little more specific as to the car stereo i.e. the name/ model number then I will have a look for the correct lead at Maplins - Mike
