New Stereo Released!

40 posts in this topic

I meant that there is a diy on how to make a harness that allows a 2009 radio in a 2010 car, and a 2010 radio in a 2009 car. So when this unit is available for purchase, it would be possible to install it in 2009 cars aswell.

Although I have seen this on other forums, I am lead to believe that the cable they have manufactured it for is strictly for 2011 not 2010. I understand what you are saying with the physical shape but I think its something to do with the Canbus. If you could find out from witson if its just a shape issue we could all bang our heads together again.

I also want this for my 59 reg fiesta. With regards to "shape" do you mean the car. If so 58 - 2012 are the same shape. 2013 that new grill thing?

The connections and canbus has been manufactured for 2011 onwards. They are however currently adapting the unit for use with 2009 - 2010 models.

Email Witson, more pressure may mean quicker results with the cable for 2009-2010 fiestas.

The difference between 2009 and 2010/2011 is the connectors on headunit. Canbus is a worldwide standard, and Im pretty sure theres no difference other than the physical layout on the connectors . People have successfully fitted 2011 radios in 2009 cars just by adapting the harness/connectors.

I know this seen the tutorials in previous topics, however unsure if this affects the control cables of this unit. The cable splits off into many different unique male connectors. These unit connections aren't as standard as the brands you may get in halfords. Or the Ford to Ford units.

They are manufactured in a very specific way. Don't know what affect changed the connector shape is going to have.

Hey guys,

No development unfortunately. Product is great as my brother has one, but I am starting to lose faith in 2009-2010 version coming out in next couple of months.

Apparantly they are focusing on upgrading all the S60 models (that horrible multi-coloured clunky model) up to S100 (for all cars).

After that I think they will then manufactuer the cable and extras for our car. I don't think its just the cable holding them back. I think they programmed the Fiesta 2011 model to work with the original tall screen and cars original bluetooth.

They don't really get many people hasseling them but If more people like me do on a monthly basis they might prompt 1 team to work on this asap.

Get emailing:

Thanks
Bobby
