Any other suggestions for sourcing the AUX/USB assembly and cable?
Try KORAPS, they have an eBay store :link: KORea Auto Parts Service-KORAPS | eBay Stores as well as their home site :link: KORAPS - KORea Auto Parts Service - HYUNDAI KIA GM SSANGYONG RENAULT Genuine Parts! Low Price!

The other cable you bought might work for Android :undecided: but wont be compatible for Apple, looks like it would melt when charging :eek:

I havent bought it yet, but it was recommended earlier in this thread

GUIDE UPDATE - USB CABLE

I did the upgrade from a GD-01 earlier this year and was able to get complete functionality without the USB port assembly and cable. Here are my results in case anyone is in a similar position.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

If you do not have the GD-03 USB assembly you can buy a pre-made cable like this one


Has anyone used these cables before? I got a price from PC Parts and Cables and it works out about $15 incl shipping to Australia.

I didn't put the link since searching the part number on google might find you a website selling it in your country or a website selling it cheaper than four green!

Nothing has changed with the install process, just follow the instructions by VTH...very simple :)

If the unit doesn't have the latest 2.05.10 firmware then you can find in first post here :link: Cartronics TL-01?DM-01?AD-01?FS-02?GD-03?GD-04 v2.05.10 Firmware (Dec 11, 2018)

Just a quick thanks to all. I'm now considering this rather than an aftermarket unit for a 2013 i30.   The car I want to install  it into does not have a reverse camera fitted at the moment.  Has anyone wired an aftermarket camera into a gd-03 unit that was upgraded from a gd-02?

I fitted the oem camera but an aftermarket camera will work as well.

Hi All - love this guide and Iím keen to do this upgrade.

Does anyone know if this module is compatible? Looks the same apart from the flip down cover. Part number is a5110 rather than a5100.

I don't suppose you know if the wiring is all there (eg from the boot to the dash in models that do not have the camera as standard).  If this is the case I could just get a camera from the wreckers and hook that up to the wiring in the boot.  Alternatively I'm assuming its a matter of getting an after market camera and finding the right pins and wiring the camera directly to the harness behind the head unit??

The twin plug connections at the rear look right, havenít seen one with a flip face before though.

Yeah I thought it appeared to be the same. Iíve found a decent priced GD-03 so thinking I might roll the dice on this.

I think you might need to take off the hatch interior panel for inspection, then youíll see if there is a plug connection waiting there for you and youíll also want to make sure itís possible to mount the factory camera.

The camera plug is not present if you don't have a camera fitted from the factory since the harness that includes the camera connector has a different part number than the normal one. You can run new wires from the boot to the radio. That's what I did!

It fits. You can take off that open/close cover and fit the one which is on your current usb module.

Super helpful info on the wiring harness part numbers.

by chance do you remember how you wired it in?  I'm assuming that:
- power from the reverse lights goes to  connector a pin 9 (to activate camera on display when in reverse)
- video ground (outer part of RCA connector) goes to Connector a pin 14
- video center connector from RCA goes to Connector A pin 15?

this is based on the awesome diagram from I justkowstuf  :goodjob: who posted it a while back.

For anyone chasing the USB/AUX assembly, Hyundai in WA actually have them in stock for $49.

Cables too but theyíre $40  :eek:

Another successful upgrade complete.  Ordered one last week from ebay. Looked a bit beat up but for $130 delivered I figured I would roll the dice.  Turned up on Friday. Wires were cut but that ended up being a good thing.  I managed to splice my own USB cable by connecting the end that was left in the unit from the wire cutting with using a standard USB extension which I trimmed the Male end off.  Bit of trial and error with the USB.  Initially I had the USB data wires backwards.  For any one attempting this, get the power pins right which is an easy check with a multi meter.  Data cables should not kill your device (based on the iPhone not getting fried when I tested). I owe a credit to someone here who posted up some USB wiring stuff.   I have a reverse camera on the way. I will try to remember to get some pics of that when the camera turns up.

Can you give me the link from where you ordered the unit because I can't find GD03.
