Thanks bud!

And was it just plug and play or did you need adapters/ISO leads/Fascia plates etc?

As said alredy, that's a highline dash. With the factory GPS units they display nav info on the centre screen.

I know some of those aftermarket radios say CanBus compatible so I was wondering if that included transferring the same Nav info to the dash.

This is a link to one (sort of) in action :

Radio update!
So it's working well but I need to buy a reversing camera as when you select reverse it changes into reversing mode
One thing I need advice on is the mirrors used to auto dip when reverse was selected but have stopped since radio was fitted,  what do I have to do to get them working again?

Haven't updated in a while, I have fitted my carbon mirror caps and red badges, delighted with the mirror caps, in two minds about the badges, what do you think?!

Cloth recaros  :star: why have I never seen a set? Was it a option in the UK market?
