I am getting ready to install my Aux Input today. I will update once I am finished.

I am using the following:

1) NAV-TV MOST-AUX Interface.
You are probably thinking....Why does it say BMW on the unit? This kit is the same hardware as the Aston Kit. I just had to load the Aston Firmware from their website onto it. This saved me about $130 by getting the BMW kit on eBay.

2) Bluetooth Dongle off Amazon
This dongle attaches to the RCA's on my MOST-AUX unit instead of the typical 3.5mm headphone jack. I am hoping I can still keep my phone paired to two BT devices at once. Call Audio through Aston BT and Music through the Dongle/Aux. I suppose I will find out shortly. The Aston BT isn't great anyways so I am not too concerned about this.

After this is sorted out I want to get a miring interface for the Factory Sat Nav LCD. I can then interface that to the MOST-AUX and Mirror Audio and Video from my phone. This would allow me to use any app right off my phone and display it on the factory LCD screen with the simple toggle of a switch.

I paid the annual insurance and purchased 15mm wheel spacers, with extended nuts, to replace the 11mm H&R spacers on the front axle.

Got it Road-registered in The Netherlands the other week.

I moved back after 9 years in Singapore (March '17) and needless to say the DB9 had to come back with me. The car has traveled well I'd say: it spend its first years in the UK, after which I brought it to Singapore for 2,5 years with it now being enjoyed in a much moderate climate.

Let me know how that turns out. If it works well, I may want to do similar.

I will do that. Right now I am hashing out issues with the NAV-TV MOST-AUX. Seems like a bad module loosing sync on the MOST-BUS. Once I get this sorted I think the screen mirroring will be my fall/winter project.

Looks good on a lighter-colored car. Probably wouldn't be too noticeable on a dark car.
