CD400 Bluetooth
#1
Hi,
Firstly many apologies if this subject has been covered before but I’m just looking for a definitive answer. Brought a second hand Astra GTC 2.0 CDTI 16v SRI (16 plate) yesterday with a CD400 plus unit. 
Can’t  seem to find any Bluetooth options. If I press the phone button it just mutes the audio, now should this unit come with Bluetooth as standard or have I brought one without it activated? 
Secondly what is the best option to get Bluetooth fitted (if I need too - which I think I do !!!!) without losing any other functionality.

Again sorry if I have posted a question already answered but I can’t belive a 2016 plate car would come nowadays without Bluetooth 

Thanks
Matt

Do you have DAB? As I'm sure the CD400 + come with DAB or BT.

You could have factory BT retrofitted your closest person is You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.

Welcome to the wonderful world of being a Vauxhall owner and their poverty spec cars.

I bought a 63 plate Astra elite 3 yrs ago, and although it's got some toys, my old 2006 Vectra Elite had some better ones.

Hi mate, no they didn’t come with Bluetooth as standard on the 400 or 400 plus, I was gutted about that too. What I did was installed an Android unit so you have Bluetooth, sat nav, cd, DVD etc. I paid about £320 and installed it myself which was pretty easy. So I suppose it’s just down to whether you think it’s worth it?
Hope this helps?

Mine was the same, all the controls for bluetooth but no bluetooth module installed. Very Common. I installed an aftermarket unit. Look at this video and there are links in the description as to where to buy one.

Hi guys
Many thanks for your replies.
Rusty2009 yes I have the dab radio. So I can’t just retrofit a Bluetooth module !!! Damn best get saving my pennies then. I must admit I like the android option but as I’m an apple user not sure of the compatibility issues. Am just mulling over a retro fit Bluetooth or paying more for an upgrade to the Navi 600. I aim to keep the car for a fair few years so investing now might not be a bad option. Till then back to the good old Bluetooth earpiece.
Would appreciate some advise as to what you guys think is the best option. Would also need to have any upgrade fitted as due to health issues would struggle to carry out the work myself.
Thanks
Matt

You could retrofit BT to the CD400+ but would need extra wiring & coding.

Navi600 again would require extra wiring & coding.

If you wanted to go factory I would say go more for the Navi950 (newer unit) with BT inside and I've been using my iPhone (now 7 with it with no issues) can even steam music over BT with the 950.

My experience with the aftermarket OEM looking units is not good and the BT on them isn't the best. Alot of people have had no issues with the aftermarket units although some still complain about the BT.

If you wanted to go the factory I can fit and program them I'm based in Bournemouth

As Rusty says navi950 far best upgrade option if you want nav and Bluetooth.

I use an android unit and again music streaming works a treat.

They are a bit difficult to come by but when there is one available there's normally more.

Hi all i have just bought myself a vauxhall astra 1.6 cdti ecoflex sport tourer which comes with the cd400 radio like in this post it has no bluetooth capabilities but all the buttons. Before seeing this post hi had bought a 2nd hand module off ebay, is there no way to fit this at all, i have a duel din radio cd dab radio i would prefer to fit but to do that it appears i need a new grey facia kit and wiring kit which is around £165. module was 30 quid. so i am hoping i can use the cheap option till i can afford the better one.

It can fitted but you need the BT loom and the radio to be programmed.

There is only 1 cd400 that has DAB BT & USB built in upload some pics of the unit & I can advise further.

As to extra wiring you would need DAB aerial & Microphone cable.

The radio unit would also need to matched to your car.

@rusyt2009 does a postal service that can add genuine Bluetooth to your cd400 if that's the way you want to go. He can also do the extra wires needed to fit it.

For factory fitted Bluetooth kit with wiring is £250 posted, I’m aware you’re in Scotland & I really don’t know anyone up there that is able to fit.

The best way to reply is the quick reply. Dont know why but if I message you the emoticons are all mixed up and in the bit you type in and I cant see what I'm typing. Lol. Part of my problem is being able to fit it. Not sure I'm confident enough to try it. My email is Removed for you. I can see on this thing. Lol. I am def interested in what you have. As long as it fits in 2010 vauxhall astra with cd400 stereo. Just need someone to fit it. I need to think. Lol
