minty put a reverse camera on mine easy enougth to do if your replacing the number plate light use the live and earth off that for the light its self then the power for the actual camera i used the boot lock connection only live when hatch is closed then run the lead through the rubber into the headling along the nearside use a old metal coat hanger to feed it to the edge of the rear door then just drop the door seals and run it along down the a pillar and under the glove box .most of these replacement units seem to be just plug and play and the camera is well worth fitting imo as it saves you hitting the bollards in asda car parks lol .

The reverse camera is really easy hardest part is getting the video cable through the rubber conduet. It's well worth it though.

A few questions...

Does the aux port in the glovebox still work with this?

Does the voice control still work? Ie, hitting the Voice button and commanding stuff?

Liam, I have installed this, will put some pics up later. Quick question, the unit button light red when I power it on, but only stay on for a few secs, they also don't come on when car headlights come on I would have expected this. Think I've fitted all the cables and canbus is connected also. also do your bluetooth contacts transfer and sort alphabetically? Cheers

that the same model im looking at buying, along with the reverse camera, i did notice on the picture of the rear of the unit it doesn't have any pre-outs (unless the cable is not in the pic)

also i have found a wireless revers camera (transmitter in the boot and receiver under the dash) and it cheaper

Hey Vince there is a seperate loom that has all the sub out pre out and aux etc this then plugs into back of the unit.

Vince,

I think the cable at the bottom in attach picture will be for the link to the reverse camera. I didnt bother with one although when I put the car in reverse the screen drops out.

Its a good piece of kit apart from the issue I'm having with the buttons not staying lit or coming on with headlamps.

Sat nav is very good, ipod works with direct control from headunit & charges via lead in glovebox, hallelujah! No more aux cable. Steering wheel control also functions volume and mode selection. Not tried calling with bt feature yet or dvd player.

This is a link video for the lighting issue I'm having with it, no internal setting for this so reckon it could be an error with wiring within the supplied loom

So Liam, you've had a bit of time to play with it, what's it like to live with? Any major pros and cons? Would you recommend it as an upgrade?

There's 2 loose orange wires and 1 that connects to the canbus box swap them about and turn your headlights on and it should do the job

I've had this unit for a week now and tbh I think it's amazing

I had a pioneer double din on it prior to this

And have lost the pioneer sound quality but have gained a sat nav and Bluetooth and a humoungous screen

Excellently unit

Thanks Jay Ali,

Is this something you had to change and do to yours then?

Yes there is a load of loose cabling on the wiring conenctor loom, I do happen to recall there being some loose wires (possibly they were orange) that had little black connectors on the ends. Will remove the system tomorrow and have another look. I'm impressed with the system so far.

Have you used connected your phone to the bluetooth? Do your bluetooth contacts view in alphabnetical order?

Also, want to change the background to my own, reckon I can shove some pics on the SD card maybe.
