If your car model is not in the compatibility list but you still think it might be compatible please contact us via eBay or web form at gromaudio.com/support.html
You can also email us the picture of your car stereo ( front and back) to support at gromaudio.com and write your compatibility question in the email message body.

* What does the non-DSP means on the BMW stereos?
DSP stands for “digital sound processing”, it is usually written on the stereo facia or in the car stereo manual. Your BMW stereo should be non-DSP for GROM adapters to work.

* What does the single DIN and double DIN means for VW stereos?
DIN is an acronym for Deutsches Institut fur Normung, i.e. German Institute for Standardization. In this particular case, it is used for specification of different standards of car stereos used in VW/ Audi / SEAT/ BMW and other European cars. If your car stereo is about 2 inches / 5 cm height, then it should be considered as Single-DIN. If it is about 4 inches / 11 cm height, your car stereo is Double DIN.

Installation

* Do I need to remove or replace my existing car stereo?
You will keep your existing car stereo. In order to install the adapter you will need to reach to the back of the car stereo where the CD changer port is located. To do so you might need to take the stereo out. However in some cars you can reach behind the car stereo from the passenger side to plug the adapter in.

* Do I need to seek for the help of the professional?
It depends on your ability and skills. Some installations are easy and some require more work to be done.

* Are there any special tools required?

* Where do I put my iPod, USB stick or MP3 player once the adapter is installed?
