Doing some researching, wanting to replace the Headunit in the VS (put a Pioneer single DIN in about 10-12 years ago)
Came across an old discontinued style Kenwood KDC-X7100DAB that would fit the bill perfectly, but obviously is no longer available.

Trying to find something with Rear USBs instead of a single front as I prefer to keep everything in the glovebox out of sight.
Or at a minimum a single rear USB and if it also has a front then cool.
Phone connectivity for calls (The reason for upgrading)
DAB Radio is a desirable not a must have.

One i had found was a Pioneer DEH-X7850BT
Only downside no DAB

Curious to know anyones experiences lately with finding a single DIN unit, with the above or any recommendations where to go.
Flip Single Dins will be no good, due to the bench seat dash having a big of coverage, so unless the headunit comes forwards 20mm that option is out of the question unfortunately.

Hi @Drawnnite not sure if this is of any help but i was looking for something for my VS Ute and came across a guy on FB that 3D prints the bezel that goes around the radio. The radio recommended was the Sony XAV AV 1000 which has a large screen 6.2" i think, with a single din back. The advantage is you don't have to cut in to the heat box to fit it.

I had an Alpine CDE-205DAB unit installed in my wife's VS Clubsport last year. Great unit.

Thanks for that guys.

Ill have to have a suss out of the Alpine ones and see what else is out there.
Reason for the rear USB is to hide the cables into the glovebox, keeping nothing on display.
Honestly phone wise it would be bluetoothed.

Like the looks of those Phil, but as youll see below, slight dilemma.
Being the Bench seat VS the dash lay out is ever so slightly different to a normal dash lay out, ie the heater controls are horizontal and not vertical.
Found an old photo which shows how it is set out, might make some more sense.
Might be able to see about the no flip up problem and if it goes down the issue is smashing the hand into it when changing gears or wanting to use my cupholders.
