Hi welcome to the forum

The 75 and ZT are roughly based on the BMW 5 series and have some unusual systems, however the blue and white plugs do not look like BMW so must be a hybrid system.

The black plug is standard DIN.

You need an adaptor, try autoleads.

Sounds like you have the Highline nav setup. Does it look like this?



It's a complicated BMW setup that combines different modules, most of which are in the boot. The radio module often fails due to water ingress.

It is possible to remove the nav head unit and install a standard aftermarket head unit. You will need to delve deep into the centre console to find the wiring connection of the audio system into the main loom (the connection will be the BMW type to suit the adaptor in the link below). Disconnect the nav loom from this connector and connect to the new head unit via an adaptor.

You will then need to reroute the aerial feed from the C-pillar or extend it from the old radio module in the boot. This is a faff that involves removing bits of interior trim to access and route the cable but is essential if you want a radio feed to your new head unit.

Your working nav modules can then be sold on ebay if so desired.

There is very little processing that happens in the head unit. It's merely a 'front end' control interface with a screen and some buttons. It's the modules in the boot where the action happens so any problems can usually be traced to those.

I'd suggest you pay a visit to the 75 and ZT OC forum tbh as they will have greater knowledge of the system there.

A lot of pages have gone down hill. Pity really. The Rover 75 and MG ZT Owners page on Facebook is good in my experience.
