Exactly, yes. The blue connector mates with the C connector, pins 18/19/20.

Here is the link if you have not found it so far. But It will only work for Blaupunkt HU I guess.

The make is always written on the sticker on top of the HU.

I could connect my Samsung CORBY Mobile
(OutDated phone, but does the job for my need)

to the USB media (Linea Emotion Pack - JAN 2010) by selecting Settings >>Phone settings >> PC Connections >> mass Storage.

It works superb, great sound clarity.

All the lists however are displayed only via Steering controls.

The phone cuts off when call comes in.

So no need for the Aux right now!!!

Default DIY - Fiat Linea - AUX input - Blaupunkt - 2009 Manufacture

Line In via Aux - Linea Emotion (Not Pack) MJD - 2009 Model - Blaupunkt Head Unit

There are quite a few posts/threads on this topic.

This is a DIY and a cheap one.

Materials - Bought

1. 3.5mm Stereo Jack to 3.5mm Stereo Jack Cable - 1m - INR60
2. Bracket lugs - 3 - INR12 - Check the size for this before buying - It would make sense to take your head unit with you to buy this.
3. Soldering - 3 wires into bracket - INR10

Materials Used


1. Clothes Hangar - Existing at home
2. Cutting Plier
3. Insulation tape
4. Torch


Steps

1. Take a slim clothes hangar - check before cutting - to see if it fits into the hole - you get these in various thickness.
2. Cut it into 2 U shape with the cutting plier - Takes a bit of strength if you dont have leverage.
3. Insert the U removal tool into both side - This will go in about ~ 2 - 3 inches
4. Push the U handles towards the outside and gently pull.
5. The entire unit will slide out.
6. Gently remove the Radio Antenna from the bottom right hand corner
7. Gently remove the main connector from the left hand top back of the head unit.

8. Take the 1m 3.5mm - 3.5mm cable and cut one end of the cable just before the 3.5mm jack.
9. Remove the sleeve, exposing around 1cm of bare wire.
10. Go to a TV / Electrical Repair shop and get the 3 bracket lugs soldered to 3 wires that are available.
11. This is a TRS Stereo Jack - Tip, Ring, Sleeve - The Tip is the Left Channel, Ring is the Right Channel, Sleeve is Ground.
12. Use a multimeter to check the continuity to find out which cable color (of the 3 that are there) corresponds to TRS and make a note.
13. Insulate these with tape - there is very little space in the back. These are pretty delicate.


13. Above the Main connector on the rear left hand top - you will see a set of connectors.
14. There are 3 sets of connectors - A. 3-2-3 B. 2-2-2 C.1-2-1
15. The set C is what you use - 1 - 1 - 1 - Top Middle Bottom - Top is Right Channel - Hence check what color corresponds from point 11 & 12.
16. Now Connect the wire / lead / bracket / lug corresponding to the Right Channel to the Top Connector / lead in Set C
17. Now Connect the wire / lead / bracket / lug corresponding to Ground to the Middle Connector / lead in Set C
18. Now Connect the wire / lead / bracket / lug corresponding to the Left Channel to the Bottom Connector / lead in Set C

19. Now create a knot and use a tie wire to anchor the cable to the head unit as / for strain relief.
20. Insert the 3.5mmm Stereo jack into the receptacle
21. Remove the two panesl below the steering column to the right of the center console - which house the fuse box and the one adjacent to it.
22. The fuse box panel removal is mandatory as it overlaps the one beside it.
23. Using the torch to light the area - thread the wire from the stereo receptacle to the outside. This was a bit uncomfortable.
24. This can also be brought out in the center directly near the ash tray / small cup holder.
25. I did not know how to open this - hence did not force it.

26. Slide the stereo back in and press shut.

27. Connect the 3.5mm Stereo jack to the headphone socket of an external player.
28. Power the stereo - Press the CD Button twice - You will se AUX on the screen.
29. Disable equalizer on the external device.
30. ENJOY - Clean Clear Music

31. NOW have to find a good cheap mp3 player with 8GB capacity with a good battery and sound quality!

Do revert - if anything is not clear.
All Pics using a phone camera - please excuse the quality and clarity of the same.
