In Topic: Mk 5 Double Din Or Tablet Mount

14 May 2013 - 08:20 PM

Those Brodit mounts are awesome.  I've decided to get a decent head unit and Bluetooth my phone to that.  But get another phone and connect it with one of those Brodit Mounts and Bluetooth the OBD2 reader to that and have Torque Pro running on that.  


Has anyone used the Molex connector on the Brodit mount?


Next question,  Can anyone recommend a decent head unit?  I was looking at the JVC - KD90BT, and putting a USB hub in the space under the stereo.


I've not even bought the car and I've got most of the interior planned LOL

Lol I was hoping to put an android touchscreen in and have Torque Pro running. Gutted.

It looks a bit smaller than double I think. Which is annoying lol

Cheers for the reply Nathan.


Yeah, it's the 1.6 I was looking at.


The 2K is just for the car, I'm expecting a bit of change but for the right car I'd pay the right money.


I've not really got a budget for the head unit, I'm prepared to spend decent money though.  I was hoping to get an android powered one and run Spotify and Torque Pro straight from the dash.  That way, when connected by Bluetooth I can stash my phone away whilst it's charge and run everything direct from the head unit.  Hopefully I can find a good way to install controls on the steering wheel too, although that's definitely a low priority.

I'm tempted to buy one just to see if it can be done.  Although it's probably cheaper and less hassle to just buy one off eBay and scan it.
