Just in the process of replacing mine with a 2 din android box.

Unfortunately, the controls for the time / date / etc are on the radio so once that is replaced, there is no direct way to reset the time, etc. That could be a pain after a battery disconnect.. might have to fit a battery memory saver.

You can still set your date time etc if you have a steering wheel control on your car, you need to buy a connects2 adapter and a patch lead

No sorry i use apple but the double din units are much alike and the connects2 are just the connector for connecting the head unit onto the car electrics. The patch lead is the bit that keeps the steering remote and its that you keep your clock working with

I normally buy pioneer or kenwood but jvc alpine etc are all good as well

I bought this:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2DIN-7-Ca...72.m2749.l2649

The patch lead is something I'm considering because its almost the same price as the android box

Further thoughts on this..

Reading around the stalk controls it seems they transmit CAN bus signals on the Peugeot 207. Android boxes typically require a resistive load (related to each button pressed) on their KEY1 and KEY2 input lines and so a CAN to resistance adaptor is needed. This is what Connects2 and PAC SW1 adaptors do.

It should also be quite possible to make a very cheap CAN enabled PIC based interface that does a similar job and some people have already hacked the "VAN" bus protocols that Peugeot use for these things:

VAN Bus Interfacing

https://github.com/dwery/van-bus

My question is, if one can splice the steering wheel controls to the right inputs on the VAN bus, the lines that feed the MFD, whould these not still work with it? They may not work the android box (without the CAN to resistance adaptor) but would they not set MFD parameters like date and time?
