2012 207 Sportium

Hello. I'm new to forums so sorry if this is posted i the wrong area.

I've recently purchased a 2012 207 Sportium that has a Clarion NX501ER installed. I like the system but the radio reception is awful and as good as the SatNav is, it's dated and on a number of roads around my area it's giving incorrect speed limits and road layouts.

I was looking to get a new system installed but I'm receiving conflicting information with regards to the steering wheel controls.

Can anyone confirm if when installing a new system, do you need a new cable for the steering wheel controls to work correctly?

My knowledge of cars and audio systems is pretty much non-existent so don't want somewhere like Halfords to take me for all they can get if it's not required.

In terms of a new system, any recommendations? Looking for something that I can use Apple CarPlay on and preferably something that has a decent screen as the Clarion doesn't handle well in direct sunlight.

Appreciate all/any help.

You will need a specific interface for the controls and display based on what unit you fit. You could update firmware and softwarexon existing unit to get updated maps etc

Thanks for the reply. That's where I'm getting confused as according to my local Halfords the interface is generic and no longer available.

I've updated the Firmware/Software using the files on the Clarion website but the maps are still pretty dated as I found out over the weekend by following the route into a hospital car park lol.

If anyone knows of anywhere else the software is available, I'd really appreciate a link.
