Appreciate those fellow turbo owners who stepped up and asked to be part of this new beta program.

Got the first feedback from an installer. Took him under 30 minutes and he is HAPPY! That was nice to hear.

So here is the deal. We had a beta tester try to install the BTR-1 kit with a CDR-23 MOST head unit. No go. Everything plugs in, but the reprogramming for the AUX does not work. Bummer. He mentioned the Becker unit could be sent somewhere to be reprogrammed. But I cannot have that as part of my solution. The more research I do, the less it seems MOST will be easily solved. There are the Dension units that plug into the MOST fiber optics, but they are pretty expensive. There are plug in antenna FM modulators, but usually the sound quality is sub par. So the BTR-1 kit works in a Porsche with: Becker Traffic Pro, Mexico CD (7803, CC4325, CC4327, CD4337, CC4370), CR-22, CDR-22, CR-220, CDR-220. and maybe... CDR-210, CR-210 and PCM1 radios with a CD Changer port?
Further info and a pdf with the full install on a CDR-220: CLICK HERE

Oh, man. Where was this 2 years ago. Great idea. Most aftermarket DIN head units just don't look right in our cars...

I can confirm with 100% certainty that this unit will not work with a CDR23 head unit. I believe they put them in all the cars 03 and up (someone correct me if I'm wrong). It uses the MOST network as others have mentioned but oddly has the correct connector on the back of the radio for this unit so I figured I'd try anyways and see what happened. The power and ground wires were different but everything else was the same. Got the BT unit powered up and paired to my phone and plugged it into the back of the radio but no luck being able to select as a source. I've included a few pictures for those of you who are interested.




As the radio came out, this is what was plugged in. I have the factory CD changer.

I've got a CDR-23 unit, and one of these kits in hand. BUT, I don't have my radio code!!

so once I get my code I may try and see if the kit works with mine.

will post up my results.

I've had this beta installed for about a week and a half now and it works great! Folks should certainly give this a shot especially if they're not a fan of removing the factory head unit.
