[Pioneer MVH-1400NEX] Where is the iDatalink 3.5mm audio jack?

Post by theboyk » Thu Jun 20, 2019 11:05 am

I’m hookup up everything to the MVH-1400NEX and instruction say to insert the Maestro RR audio cable into the iDatalink 3.5mm audio jack in the 1400NEX. But, an iDatalink 3.5mm audio jack isn’t listed anywhere on the 1400NEX? What port would this be? Is there something else it’d be listed as?

The only iDatalink port listed in the 1400NEX install manual is the iDatalink data port.

It should go to the AUX port. Make sure there is nothing connected to the W/R port, or it will not work correctly.

OK, but what about the AUX cable on the SU2 harness then? The same instructions show the AUX cable on the SU2 harness going to the 1400NEX as well?

So if I put the iDatalink 3.5mm audio jack in the AUX port on the NEX, where does the AUX from the harness go? I don’t want to loose the factory AUX port in the car as my kids use it all the time?

In your application, the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek, our audio cable is actually not needed. You can forgo installing it and put the aux from the t-harness into the radio's aux port.
