Hi,

I've picked up a genuine Citroen USB BOX unit, from a dealer and found that they only supply them for the RD4 unit. My C5 is literally just before the Mk2 came out, and has the Clarion RD3 unit.

Now - having explored this thoroughly I've come to the conclusion that the PSA unit is in fact the Dension Gateway 300 unit (http://www.dension.c...kgateway300.php) which they do supply for the RD3. Contacted Dension and it's UK suppliers, and they will not supply the lead for the RD3 unit seperately :)

In saying this though, I am going to pop the Stereo tonight, just to see if it does/doesn't fit. Though from the Pics I've seen, the changer plug on the back of an RD3 unit is different.

Therefore, does anyone know the pin-out for the RD4 changer unit, versus the pin-out for RD3 changer socket? I'm sure I can pick up a plug to connect into the back and modify the cable to fit (if anyone can point me in the direction of a supplier, otherwise off down to Maplin).

Failing that. If anyone is prepared to pay me £80 (no offers, I'm making a loss at this price) for a genuine, never been used PSA unit - they can contact me and buy it off me!

If anyone has made the connection for a USB BOX to RD3 would be glad to be pointed to a How-To, but couldn't find anything on my googles, and looks through this forum.

Thanks,

Derv.

wont work; RD4 uses CAN bus and the RD3 VAN, so even when you are able to modify the connectors, the RD3 and the USB box wont be able to talk to each other.
