In Topic: Is My Head Unit The Wrong Type?

C'mon people, I can't believe that out of all the members of Ford Owners....
....Not a single person has bought one of these Wong Bong headunits....

Don't be shy :)

I for one would really like to know what the sound quality is like, does a Sony or Pioneer p*ss on them from an audiophile point of view?

Maybe I'll buy one if no-one is forthcoming and I'll provide a review ;)

I've been busy checking out various stuff and I've just this moment purchased a 2010 headunit identical to my existing one, because for a ton for a 'brand new condition' headunit it gives me the full monty of BT and Voice and allows me to wait for the aftermarket headunits to develop more.

Lenny, in response to your ask for peoples experience I was looking before I made my purchase and found this thread relating to a Passat forum and it all sounds very good, I also digged the idea of buying a reg plate light reversing camera, they're about £20 on ebay and look just like what you get on new cars with the feature.

The reason why I want to hold fire for now is two fold:

1] no voice control support

2] Internet, I reckon they will include some form of WiFi/3G or even 4G into these things soon and then they will be really cool to consider but for now, I just want to have the voice control and hands free phone experience B)

There is one on ebay now that boasts running some form of Android and therefore Android apps but, its a lot of dough.

All I want to say for now is thanks guys for your help, especially you Lenny as your 'unfortunate' experience allowed me to make the right choice of purchase, thank you. :)

Hey Lenny,

Cheers for the insight, yes as you will have noticed my headunit is 2007 so it looks as though your experience would stack up with why my system will not work correctly.

I have seen a Sony 6 disc and several 6000cd units on Ebay which I'll keep my eye on ;)

Out of curiosity I also thought I'd check out the Wong Bong headunits that are available, does anyone have any experience with these units? Will I be throwing away good money?......

Hi Stoney,

Perhaps the headunit is not to blame then as mine looks exactly the same as the one you say I need to have i.e. the second headunit in your post.

Should I try another headunit anyway or try another Nokia module?

Hi Tom thanks for looking,

All that is on the headunit is:

FDD200 7 V076347

Under this is a date:

06.06.2007

The V07.... code is the one I provided to the unlocking service.

What do you reckon?
