Yes i can see why providing you can sort the wires out and dont miss the mfd give it a miss :thumb:I bought this:
The patch lead is something I'm considering because its almost the same price as the android box
£50 is fair price for a chinese one but the unit viljami323 is interested in is nearly 5x as much which is a rip-off.
In my area I can leave the car unlocked with roof down, and nothing ever happens.
How did it work out. Does everything working as it should. Rear sensors and stalks? Looking at doing this myself.you will need to buy a wiring harness with stalk adapter. the one you showed in the last post doesn't have it.
One like this: ebay.co.uk/itm/370772706525?ul_noapp=true
what it does is allows you to use the steering wheel controls/stalk to control your audio, and allows for controlling of the trip computer/top display using the same stalk.
About the head unit - nearly £250 for a chinese no-name unit is crazy. Build quality, reliability and warranty are always a lottery, sellers of chinese stuff on ebay show up and vanish on daily basis.
I paid £299 for a JVC unit with Android Auto/Car Play from halfords (big retailer) and I'm perfectly happy with it, if the unit doesn't do something by itself, 3rd party android auto apps on the phone will do it (eg. youtube)
One thing worth noting - I had problem with power wires when fitting my unit. Car's 'economy mode' or whatever cuts the 'constant 12v' power on yellow wire after several minutes, so the head unit loses all the power. I used a fuse tap on F10 fuse (alarm etc) and connected the radio's yellow wire to it, this way it works perfect.
Also - most head units come with cage, so you don't need to buy separate one. I just bought a fascia to make it looking nice.
