VAG / BMW adapter won't work for you. MBus adapter will.
I'm running a beta testing right now to see how it work on different car make.
Let me know if you're interested so I can send you more info.

I have a 2002 AUDI A3 with AUDI Concert II HU.

If you still want a beta tester, I can be one.



Best Regards!

Hi,

I`ve got an Audi A2 (Model 2004) with a Chorus HU. So I think the adapter will work for me.
Currently I do the steering of winamp in my Car PC, with a 16*2 LCD Modul with the LCD plugin by Markus Zehnder and the ComControl Plugin.

The ComControl plugin is connected to a selfmade Front Cover with 10 Pushbuttons.
For Navigation and what else, a 8" Hami TFT will used.
Here are some photos, If somone like.
http://www.audi-a2club.de/thread.php?threadid=8671

But the HU Winamp Remote Plugin can be a great alternative for steering
Audio applications.

My question is, what are the possibilities to configure the plugin for Winamp ?
The Chorus2 HU has 6 Buttons for CDC control. But only 6. Are double clicks etc. supported.
Which commands are possible?

Just for testing, I have downloaded the Winamp HU plugin.
When I try to configure it, I`ve only got an popup which says "No Error".
Is that ok ?

Greetings from Germany
Thomas

Wow,
Your project looks clean !
WinAmp plugin for HU can be customized of course. I publish the source for it Smile
If you can throw some ideas in this thread so I know what you're looking for.
Double clicks can be detected programmatically. Not sure what you mean by commands though.

Hi Jbors,
yes I mean customising.

Are the commands for the 6 pushbuttons on the HU given by software, or can I change/add them ? Maybe keys on the keypad which do some other
commands via Girder for an example.

There is an API for a HU. See this zip for a complete API. In short: 1..6 buttons returned to a PC driver as a DS\t{001..006}\n command. It is up to you to interpret it or send it over...

Thank you very much, but (there`s always a but) I`m not familar with coding software nor compiling it.
Nevertheless I`m very interested on your Interface.
Where can I get one ?

like wise one UK based Volvo V70 owner available for testing....

I'd always wondered what kind of protocol these beasties used if I'd known that talking to my headunit was almost like talking to a say a serial modem I'd have tried to do it myself a while ago.

Thanks for the efforts so far..

Barmy

Some Volvo's use MBus, some of the especially new ones have something different. I do not have any info about new Volvo's at this time...

I think you can use BMW adapter.
Land Rover uses BMW IBus, but with the different plug. I'll check it out and let you know.

BMW adapter will work for Land Rover. Right now it need some manual crimping to be done. I can provide all instructions, manuals and even harness.

Any support for Linux? Some people are hacking a Linux-based MP3 player. It would be nice to get this working on this ARM-based unit.

Once I have time I'll release a lib for that (libusbhu). Or anyone welcome to do so ! Smile
