Alternative aux-in, usb charging port installed (OEM BMW)

I installed a BMW aux-in/USB port over the weekend. My car has a new gen headunit that can accept the aux-in port. I spliced this alternative port into the BMW standard aux-in cable (standard port installed in glove box). Let me know if you have any questions.

Part numbers:
61.31.3.129.652 Aux-in/usb port
61.13.8.380.696 universal socket (connector) housing (4 place)
61.13.0.006.663 wiring contacts with wire pigtails (need 3)
51.16.8.236.252 single position switch cover (blank). BMW makes 1, 3, 4 place covers, no 2 place covers for some reason.

All USB power source components were sourced from the Shack (aka Radio Shack). I wired the usb power supply to the cigar lighter...always on. I would recommend that any device be disconnect from the USB power socket whenever the car is started or switched off to avoid dirty power spikes from potentially damaging any connected device.

If anyone has a part number for the BMW usb connector, please let me know....

nice install, looks very well done. if only i had a an aux in in my head unit....

Hi David_F. What kind of features does this item have ? Does it offer what the Grom usb unit is supposed to do ? Playback from memory sticks ?

Orion329 09-22-2009 01:08 AM

he's simply using the aux in from the head unit, the usb is solely for charging in his application. you'll need to get a GROM and do some wiring to get this usb port to work for you. the part is only a jack and usb port that is designed by BMW--wired for aux/power.

The connector used is called HSD (High Speed Data),
see here :-

Gah I wish I knew about this part number before purchasing my USB panel.

Just out of curiosity, how much was each part and where can we purchase them?

Orion329 11-03-2009 10:39 PM

hey David F, where did you purchase the Aux/USB port? it doesn't come up on getBMWparts.com.

The part # works on pelicanparts.com.

Orion329 11-05-2009 02:14 PM

thanks Coconut Pete, but it doesn't seem like the part number 61313129652 is coming up there either for the Aux-in/usb port he used.

i hadn't heard of them before....of course they do seem to have about a 30% mark-up over Tischer.

David,

Thank you for this!!

I like how stock and how much utility you get from this mod?

1. Are you able to charge and use AUX input at the same time?
2. Where did you get the parts; I haven't been able to pull the part numbers from Crownauto, Pelican or Tischer.
3. Is there anyway to improve or avoid power spikes when turning the car on of off?
4. How much in parts did it cost you?

Thanks

Thanks for bumping this thread, I would love to add a clean looking port like that to my carpc project but is something like this available for the single button style (not individual buttons)? Also I have not been able to find the part using the part number as well.

I have done a little more research after not finding the 61.31.3.129.652 part number currently listed. It seems that the following part numbers will work for this retrofit (thanks again David F!) including the correct plug housing for splicing in the USB cable. I plan to order the parts shortly and will report back.

^^^Nice Due Diligence=]

Oh how I wish I had seen this before I hacked up that exact same spot in my dash. Although I don't think it would work in mine, I don't have removable panels. Mine doesn't look bad tho. I had this monoprice ipod adapter that plugged into the lighter socket and had an audio output and FM transmission (don't need it with aux in, much better), but the darn plastic pos broke in 1 day, so I hacked it up and installed it into my dash. Worked pretty well. But I like this better, perhaps I'll look into this. Thanks!
