Just want to expound a little on what Tim was saying about the trim pieces. You have to work them loose from the bottom up. When the whole trim is free swing it away and up and the top will come loose. On reassembly, lift it up at that angle, and make sure the top pops in before trying to work it back down into place. Not too bad really, once you get a feel for the way it works. I was just scared of breaking it at first.

If you plan on using the console cubby, this is the time to feed your iPod lead through the hole in the top, while everything's torn apart.

You can also make your own Aux cable for the '06 GV, its a pretty straight forward device:

Aux Cable HowTo

I havent had the time to check the pin-out on the back on the HU for the '07 (i.e. they deleted the remote connector the '06 has), but the wiring basics will still apply. If anyone wants to give it a try on their '07, I'll be happy to work with them.

Has anyone figured out how to access the back of the stereo on the 07 GV???

I got the dealer to install the Clarion unit and I have to say that I am not impress with its capabilities. I do not suggest this unit to anyone.

I would like to install Tim's cable myself but I am unsure on where to start. I cant seem to find how to unlatch the silver trims on the centre console.

Please help,

newGVowner

If you open the small cubby under the heater controls you will see a small gap between the console and the silver trim.
You can place a small screw driver into the gap there to lift the trim with out having to worry about damaging the surface.
Slowly remove the trim from the bottom to the top..

Cheers,

Tim

The connector I am having made for the North American GV and SX4 AUX cable has the correct plug and terminals to fit the AUX connector.

The pin positions are different for North America, but the connector is exactly the same.

I have already sent prototype cables to members in Australia and Singapore. I'll post the results as soon as I hear back from them.

Cheers,

Tim

BTW,

The 07 and up radio does not have the 3 low, med, hi settings like the 2006. The 2007 radio "remembers" the last volume that you were listening to that function at, and automatically adjust to that volume.
If you listen to CD at 16 and radio at 18, and AUX at 22, it remembers and goes back to that volume

Default On-How to bring up that Aux cable in front

4. Success Contraption
5. Note - No LOW MED HIGH in this unit.
6. And the pin out details.
Resistor between the 2 trigger pins is 1.5k as suggested by Griff. Make sure your Connector is sitting properly on the Pins - I ended up wasting a whole day because one of the two rows of the connectors were not inserted on the pins! Does anyone know if someone makes an exact female connector for this port?

I connected a stereo jack directly - So I can plug it to any line outs, without having to connect another cable. I took it out without drilling any holes and it sits just below the 4H -4L Lock Knobs, inside the sun glass compartment. That has a perfect hole already in place for you to wire up. Ensure you take the lose (cut end) of the jack thru that hole and join it the connectors behind, since the Audio Jack itself is too big to go thru the hole from the back of that compartment. My ipod fits in there too. So that works well.
Some more pictures :
1. Location of what I call the Sun Glass Compartment
2. There is a ready made hole - Put your hand thru the slot in this picture and you will feel it.
3. My Ipod sitting neatly inside the Sun Glass Compartment
4. You have the option to pull it out and place in the Cup Holders.

Cheers

Hello i'm new here, this forum it's great

i have a question

I have a 2008 Swift and i want to plug my Ipod, i've seen the back of my stereo and it has two plugs like the ones Tim showed in the image before, you said only the 2007 stereos had those so:

i am about to buy the Clarion interface but there is two model the EA1251 and the EA1276, it saids that the first one is for 2006 and older units, and the EA1276 is for 2007 and newer units. the thing is i see that people buy the EA1251, but i am not sure cause apparently my stereo is 2007

what do you think i should do?? which one do i buy?? the thing is i live in Mexico so a friend is going to bring it to me, so i cant be wrong!!

Adrien,

You will need the EA125B. The EA1276 is only for the Clarion aftermarket radios.

The AUX cable is a direct audio input into the stereo, you still use the controls on your MP3 to change songs. If you are in Mexico, you can buy my AUX cable directly from your Suzuki dealer. Just ask them for part number 99001-AUDIO-IPD

Cheers,

Tim

The EA125 is the same as what you would buy at a Suzuki dealer..

The EA125 treats your iPod like a 6 disc CD changer. You need to make 6 playlist (correctly named as per the instructions). If you do not have the correct playlist names, it might just play every song in order from start to finish.

Cheers,

Tim

Lizardo,

It sounds like you have the EA125 still set in it's default mode.

Here is a section from the operating manual I found online, it looks like the default mode will start to play disc 1 (every song on the iPOd) on start up.

By default, the playback setting will be:
• Start to play from DISC1 (All Songs Play)
• Shuffle (Random) Off
• DISC Repeat On
When the iPod is connected, the main unit will
initially display “DISC” and “RPT”.



Songs number display
Repeat, Random and Scan
By default, Repeat All is on, Shuffle (Random) is off. Scan operation is disabled.
Refer to below table for Repeat and Random functions.
• Press and hold Repeat button for more than one second to toggle between Repeat All and Repeat Off.
• Short press Repeat button to toggle between Repeat On and Repeat Off.
• Press Random button one second or longer to toggle between Random Album playback selection On
or Off.
• Short press Random button to toggle between Random song selection On or Off.
During Repeat Off function, playback order is DISC1 �� DISC2 �� DISC3 ��...
During Random mode, iPod display is different from normal CD Changer Operation.
Please refer to Playlist Section for further explanation (Pg8).
Key Acceptable Playlist Mode
(DISC 2-6)
All Play Mode
(DISC 1)
RANDOM Short Press Random playback within a playlist Random all songs
Press and hold for more than
1 second
Album Random for all
songs
Random Album playback
selection within a playlist
REPEAT Short Press Repeat a song Repeat a song
Press and hold for more than
1 second
Repeat a playlist Repeat all songs


You might try turning the repeat function off in order to take it out of the default mode..

Cheers,

Tim
