CD400 retrofitting with multimedia options
CD400 Bluetooth MP3 and USB options
OPEL INSIGNIA 2009-2013
Opel astra j 2010-2019
The CD400 radio was available from the start of production of the Opel Insignia and Astra J. Without any additional options, this device made it possible to listen to AM/FM radio and play CDs. Additional equipment options, such as Bluetooth for wireless telephone connection, DAB radio, USB input, were selected at the time of purchase of the vehicle. For example, equipment with the Bluetooth option cost about 250 EUR extra and with a USB input – 150 EUR extra. After leaving the Opel / Vauxhall Dealer, it was not possible to add additional factory options as part of an authorized Opel / Vauxhall service center. Of course, such modifications are possible (see, for example, Bluetooth module …) and people interested in a good-quality factory hands-free kit willingly decide to upgrade.
In newer years, the CD400 radio unit was modified by factory-fitted with Bluetooth and a USB input. Interestingly, in contrast to the standard Bluetooth option based on an external module, this solution, apart from voice communication, also provides wireless music streaming from the phone.
The modernization I offer allows you to equip the Insignia and Astra J with two additional options at the same time: Bluetooth and a USB input.
Modernisation is designed for every Opel Insignia from 2009 to 2013 and Astra J from 2010, equipped with a CD400 radio.
USB input for flash drive, telephone, MP3 music playback
Bluetooth phone connection (original solution with full radio integration, phone book, voice commands, steering wheel control)
Playing (streaming) MP3 music from the phone via Bluetooth
