Has anyone used Dension or Grom or whatever to get BT audio and calls in their pre-97 LS400? I've used Grom for the BT3 and Aux adapter in my IS and GS but they're both later cars and the Grom website doesn't list the LS400. I do have a spare harness I could try but I don't want to go to the bother of removing the head unit if it's a non-starter.

Alternatively Dension do list the LS400 but the head units seem a bit off. Sorry for the poor quality but mine is this one. Any idea what sort it is?

Any thoughts?

I've looked into them before with Dension and have used one in a BMW which worked well, tempted to try one for the LS as it looks like a really neat solution! Price isn't bad either is it?

I keep looking at the Dension and there seems to be some confusion regarding harnesses and whether they work or not. Though fitting behind the autochanger does look a little more simple than removing the head unit. I'd hoped for a GROM solution because they just worked on the GS and IS.

Any other input?

Did you manage to get any further on this Richard?

Looking to add Bluetooth to the LS and the Denison seems like a good option. Was also thinking of the Parrot kits but that doesn’t seem possible (or at least straight forward!)

Hi John.

I'd hoped for the GROM solution but got a no from them when I got in touch. I did wonder if it was just they didn't want to commit so went to check the harness myself but actually there's a really good How to... here by @Howplum that shows the harness in detail so I was able to save myself the hassle and compare with the GROM harness I already have. Unfortunately it's not a match.

So more investigation into Dension required I think. But tbh I've been rather enjoying the cassette and CD players and just ignoring phone calls :biggrin: I've also rediscovered the retro delights of burning CDs.
