    Well the Blaupunkt has finally carked it so I'm looking for suggestions for a single din head unit. I have JBL GTO638's in the four doors (which sound fantastic). Would prefer something that integrates with the steering volume control, have pre-outs for the Kenwood KAC-M3004 amp (or be powerful enough to use on it's own) and drive the subs.
    What is everyone doing and where are they mounting them? TIA Cheers.

    Go to about 27mins.
    This system out classes anything from outdated mainstream manufacturers.



    Will be like a smaller version of a Tesla screen.

    Thanks Fu Manchu.
    I was looking for something a bit cheaper, really just a single din unit I could put in the glove box or similar, something with really good bluetooth connectivity, and just bypass the blaupunkt system.

    You won't get much like that. It's because HVAC operation is incorporated into the head unit functions. What ever you get has to have compatible HVAC function.

    Sounds promising but have heard this for years. Best feedback to date though.

    I'm guessing this is it?

    ... finally it's available.
    It comes in Black, so Calais will mean changing some other trim bits over to black to match.

    I'd be keen to get one but would all the HVAC info be lost? I think so. Has anyone installed one yet?

    It’s not lost. From what I can tell, a separate temp sensor is installed near the fan.

    You get more easily visible hvac info with the adapter kit. You go through a set up procedure and once that’s done you set up your preferred settings.

    You do loose the cubby underneath with the flip lid. Need to get a low spec tray.

    Would need the black trim for the centre console.

    This is great news! Is there a specific type of head unit that will be compatible with the HVAC? What do I need to look for?

    Just needs to be double DIN.
    If you didn’t install a AndroidAuto or Apple CarPlay compatible headunit, you’d have rocks in your head.
    These bring sleek functions to the car like google maps etc.

    I think headunits that offer a physical volume button is desirable. Touchscreen controls aren’t as easy to use.

    You’re going to be living in the future

    I should mention, aerpro will do all the adaptor harnesses for it. Should be plug and play.

    I use the Alpine ILX-007 in my VZ. Makes driving much easier and Hassle free. I have an advanced sat nav that outperforms the out dated IQ Satnav on the VE.
