2016 Blue Tooth

Has anyone done this? Replacing the 3.5 mm jack for the Aux connection with this adaptor to have Bluetooth connectivity to your Wing.?

Awesome. Did you do it yourself? Where is the existing Aux connection located? Any information on how to do it would be appreciated.

Goto this link and see if it helps. If not, I will explain further. Look under the left pocket, that is where the connection is.

That is my video for the test of the BT unit...I still have mine and it works great. As I said in the video, my BT unit was shipped out with the pins incorrect...just had to make a quick change of the pins...

Thanks for the replies. Where did you wind up running the power to after the test with the 9V battery?

I made a small jumper that connected to the switched power that is close to the Aux jack connector...

I have one on my 2005. I purchased it from electrical connection, I like theirs better because it comes ready to plug into the oem harness. No splicing just plug and play and no batteries. Works great and is really nice for using your turn by turn on the phone maps, clear as a bell over the speakers. It costs a little more but I think it's worth it, they make them at their facility here in the states.
