Talking Double Din Upgrade

HI,

Has anyone been able to do this yet to a 207, and what is required in order for this to be done, I'm looking though pages of sites and thinking of taking this task on, but need the correct items before plunging in to sort this out. If anyone has pictures of their upgrades and a hoot it would be appreciated.

Received Stereo today, reverse sensor cable, steering wheel control but sent wrong one so gotta send that back, still waiting on the fakra aerial connector. Once them items have been received I will be good to go with install.

The following is some pictures i took whilst doing the upgrade might help others out that may do the same as what i done. Hope you can see pics ok.

The above picture is the wiring loom from Original Iso connector through to the Reverse Sensor Loom to the Steering Control Buttons and then to the main loom for the stereo.

I used the Connects2 Wiring Looms and they are as follows if you want to search for them yourself:-

CTRPG001 Reverse Sensor Interface
CTSPG007.2 Steering Wheel Stalk Adapter

The Stereo is a Pioneer AVH-X490 DAB Bluetooth Radio, which came with a DAB Windscreen antenna which i fitted to the windscreen on the left hand side upper corner.

I also purchased a Double Fakra to Single Din Aerial Connector as my car had 2 Fakra Connectors on loom (the blue wire coming from the aerial connector goes to the Blue Remote wire from the back of the Radio harness. As you can see below where my hand is

There is enough space inside the cavity to place all this new interface looms so that the new Stereo fits snuggly and not trapping any cables. The Permanent live feed which you will need to keep the memory settings in the Stereo i got from the Mini Blade Piggy back fuse holder and then routed a new cable from there to the yellow feed on the reversing interface loom.

If you want to ask any questions about the install then feel free.

as I done a test with it not connected and the reception was poor, if you set radio to MW and tune to 909 you can notice the difference straight away by listening and then connecting to remote blue wire on aftermarket radio harness and you will hear a clearer sound

I've used a similar one, and found no difference whether that blue wire was connected or not! Was hoping for clearer fm stations!

Weird. Definetly made a difference to my head unit. Got it permanently connected now. But doubt I will use FM as the stereo is a DAB one so will mainly be using that way. But I did google the blue wire connector though and everywhere I went it told me about better reception. So done the test myself. Bit unfortunate for you though.
