Why did you go through so many tyres do you think?

In Topic: Replacing The 6006Cdc Stereo - Help Needed

Thanks for the info – really helpful.

I tried to find reviews of the Chinese one but couldn’t as not sure of the model number – do you know where you came across any reviews so I can have a look? Thanks

I don’t currently have blue tooth or voice control so that wouldn’t be a problem and the dash only displays the radio station name. I would miss the steering wheel control for volume etc. though.

Apparently an ebay seller called iceboxautos are able to get someone local to supply this unit and keep the steering controls.

Thanks for the suggestion of Ford/Blaupunkt "FX" but am not sure which one that is and can’t find it on ebay – are you able to post a link to it?

Thanks so much – I know that’s asking for a lot of help but really appreciate it.

I am also looking at something like this:


As this looks like it will exactly fit the slot in the S Max with no extra fascia or adapters needed – so it might be a lot easier to install?

However as its an unknown brand to me and looks like a Chinese import – I’m not sure what it will be like.

Basically, I’m looking for something that integrates with the ipod well and can play DVD’s and avi/mpeg video files.

Thanks again everyone for all your help,

In Topic: Changing Unlock So It Opens All Doors On A Single Press

15 January 2013 - 01:46 PM

Done it!

I had to hold down the lock button first and then hold the unlock button - its now working to unlock all doors with a single press. Thanks so much for your help.

My next task is to see if I can change the radio to a more up to date double din one (which has ipod integration as thats all I listen to in the car really). Got no idea where to start really so will have a look and perhaps start a thread to see if any one on here has replaced the 6006 CDC with a different unit? Not sure how easy it will be. Hope thats ok to start a thread on that?

Thanks everyone.

All the best
