Does HU navigation ever work with AUX?

    Hi all,

    After being extremely happy that i saved myself a pocket hole worth 6K by getting an AUX cable attached to my stock HU I've begun to feel the limitations.

    I'm unable to use the HU's navigation buttons to change tracks when I connect my phone/ipod/music player via AUX cable.
    AFAIK this is the limitation of AUX (or is it).
    If i go in for an after market HU that supports AUX does it allow me to use the HU navigations to move through tracks?

    Aux IN means the HU will act as a middle device b/w the speaker and your player( phone/ipod/music player). Even if you go for an after market HU i don't think you will be able to change the tracks with the HU navigation buttons(i may be wrong).

    ^^ That is right. You can only control the output from the HU not the input to the HU through Aux. So you cannot control the device connected through Aux with the buttons in the HU. You need to use the buttons / controls on the device (phone/ipod/music player) to change track, Skip or Search.

    completely agree with what you say - but with my 90hp punto - i've been facing another problem

    with the USB stick in use for music (media player) the HU display just shows Media Player - no track no nothing. also the navigation is only possible via the steering mounted controls. for all the practical purposes - the HU controls should atleast work with the usb attached via b&m

    Aux-In is meant to only receive Audio signals from your device - iPod/Phone/MP3 Player/Tablet and use the HU as an amplifier and output to speakers. Even with after market HU with built in Aux, it will not be possible to change tracks, folders, etc. from the HU. All you will be able to do is adjust volume :D

    Hello black.

    Can you share more info as to how you connected the aux cable?

    When i had taken my 90 hp to local shop i was informed that my unit does not have an aux input option
