Becker Cascade


Recommended Posts

Hi

anybody got experience with fitting a Becker Cascade Nav system?

Especially interested in placement of GPS aerial (AG13), where to get the speed signal from, and if it is really necessary to connect the reverse signal.

thanks

Chris

Assuming the pin layout stayed the same as Becker Traffic Pro and you have a Becker CDR 220 (Pre-most) it is just swapping out the CDR and putting in the Cascade. If there's an external amplifier, you need to bridge a wire to make sure your amplifier wakes up with the radio. There is already a speed signal on the CDR 220.

No need to have the reverse signal.

The antenna can be placed under the cap of the remote control receiver. It is possible to guide the antenna wire to the unit. Not very easy though, takes some trying out and possible a guiding wire.

If you don't have the CDR220 or a most bus I thought you could get the speed signal from a connector under the seat.

(Not sure about that)

The Cascade is now in - all connections are the same as for the original CD-22 HU with the addition of the hands free mike and the reverse signal input.

Only problem is that the Amp doesn't wake up when the HU is switched on.

Suspect this is because terminal C6 on the CD-22 is a switched live feed (to the Amp relay?) and C6 on the cascade is a subwoofer line out.

Anyone know how best to bridge in the Amp relay - can I take it from the switched supply at A7 for example?

Car is a 2002 986S with the sound system upgrade = door speakers + separate Amp.

If I'm not mistaken, it was about bridgeing C6 with A5. (confirmation needed)

I did this on my Traffic Pro install and it did the trick.

There is more info here:

I don't have the exact info handy here, but could check it tonight if this doesn't help you further.
