Audio Connector May Be Available
Arizona BMW Z Series Club logo
 

Member Ky Coffee offers the following tip:

If you have a 2007 or later Z4, there is a 3.5 mm audio connector under the dash just above where the ash tray is at the front of the console (or would be) I believe this is a common connector for the iPod and similar devices.

3.5 mm = 1/8 inch    The cable cost me a fortune ~~~~~~~~~~99 cents + tax ! 

You can get a suitable cable from Radio shack where I bought mine. I selected the 3 feet long version, perfect. Your FRS radio must have the 3.5 mm outlet, usually on the side of the radio covered by a flap but maybe not depending upon the model you have.

The cord is male at both ends, plug one end under the dash and the other end to your radio.

Turn the radio to AUX mode and when another member transmits you will hear them through the car speakers. I have mine all connected and it’s awesome because the fidelity of the car speakers is so much better than the cheap little speaker in the FRS radio

Our thanks to Ky, leave it to the “new guy” to teach us about our cars ~~~~~~~~HA!  HA!

And Dennis Bassi adds: For those of us with a Cassette, you could do the same with a cassette adapter to headphone plug.  They sell for $10-$20.
