Morning all,

(I'll preface this question by saying that I haven't seen the manual yet so please excuse if it's included there)

I've recently picked up a 2nd hand Qashqai Acenta (2008) and have looked high and low for an audio usb connection or aux line in. Whilst I think I've covered every inch of the car, therefore answering my own question, I'm still holding out hope that I've missed something.

Does the '08 Acenta model have a audio source beyond AM/FM & CD? If so, where is the port housed? It's hard to believe you can release a car in 2008 without having some kind of connector! Bring back the cassette deck!

If there's nothing then I'll probably look into getting something added but I'll head to the correct section of the forum for reviews on after market audio additions.

Thanks,

Pete

That radio doesn't have any aux or usb connection. Only the Connect satnav as this feature.

Acenta's have aux port in the arm rest but no USB. Hope this helps.

The aux port in the arm rest was added at the mini face lift I think (circa 2009). I have a 2008 Tekna and there is no aux port or USB port anywhere. I fitted Connect with a joint aux/USB port and this does the job brilliantly. That was after a few months of trying to get to grips with an FM transmitter for my iPod. Bleurgh!

P.S. More bad news: The CD player won't play MP3 CDs either!

Now that is strange because I had a 2007 QQ Tekna until a week ago and the 6 CD player (not Connect) played all the 3 million albums in mp3 format on all 6 CDs. I can't believe the CD player in yours would be much different but other members may know otherwise.

I don't know if you're as geeky as me but not all mp3 conversion software is the same. You may need to experiment with the various free options available if you Google 'MP3 Converters'.

Hope you solve your problem.

Am I as geeky as you? Quite possibly! Geek But not so much with music formats.
I'm pretty sure I went through the "will my 6CD player play MP3 CDs" thing on here and the answer was no...could have remembered wrongly though! I switched to Connect in the end so I stopped worrying about it Party

I've same problem but with a screen on top of dash for satnav and parking aid. The only thing i can find other than fitting the connect is this http://www.trustedreviews.com/pure-highway-300di_Portable-Audio_review the only thing is you lose FM but that doesn't bother me to much.

My QQ Tekna SatNav was ordered Oct 2008 and was built 12 Jan 2009. Even though I had NOT ordered the Aux port (it was a 160 optional extra) the car arrived with it in the centre arm rest .
From memory, I'm 99% certain the central radio fascia had "MP3" printed on it - bottom right corner, I think!

Mine is an 08 plate so I guess they added it somewhere around the 58/09 plate coming out.
