If you don't already have the Y Cable that gives the 30 pin "old style ipod" connector - you can also use something like this 
 
TUNAI Firefly LDAC Bluetooth Adapter: Hifi Wireless Audio Bluetooth 5.0 Receiver with Audiophile USB DAC 3.5mm AUX for Car/Home Stereo Hi Res Music Streaming; Auto On, No Charging Needed https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01HXXJPWK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_S9ES6TQQP0HY6B5FM45G
 
(assuming you have usb and aux sockets ) one end in usb, other in aux and pcm set to aux input ( if you have the socket and the option doesn't appear in the pcm - there's a menu option to enable aux as an input option) 




 
That's an interesting little device! As with Rocky do you connect your phone to the cars Bluetooth as well or do your calls come through the Aux port with this device? Thabks

It is a Samsung S10 plus so nice big screen. It can connect two bluetooth sources so phone connection via the carr is unaffected.

Thanks for the help everyone I've ordered the TUNAI from Amazon as I don't already have the Y adapter. Looks like it will do the trick!
 
Now looking for a suitable phone holder!

I've installed the TUNAI Firefly LDAC but I only get audio coming out the left side of the car. 
 
Really annoying!! I did a software update on the device and it still is the same.
 
Anyone else have this issue?

what happens with an alternative aux source ( iPod / phone / whatever ). If the same  issue then something in the head unit.  


Wha about other sources. Cd ? Radio ?   if all the same then check balance control , if just aux maybe a faulty socket, if just the Bluetooth adapter the perhaps broken or perhaps plug just not making connection.  


need some substitution testing to guess more.

All other sources work perfectly so I don't think it's the head Unit.
 
It might be the socket, I will have to find something that actually has a headphone jack...

Thanks for this great suggestion, I ordered one of these for my 997.2 from Amazon, it arrived the next day, plugged it in, updated the firmware and it works amazingly well.

The sound levels are a little lower than other inputs but the quality is excellent and it’s a simple little plug. It has its own EQ that can adjust the sound profile, base levels are also good. If you lock your car the USB powers down so no battery drain. Recommended, simple and good value piece of kit.
