    Default Interference help ??

    Hi guys, I have or am in the process of fitting a Multimedia system to my Insignia. Everything works but every time the stereo is turned off I lose the date and time. I reset it and while the ignition is on it keeps up perfectly but leave it a while and it has gone back to 00.00.

    Do you think this could be they have wired one of the wires up to an ignition live rather than a permanent live or would I lose the stored radio stations as well if this was the case ??

    Even without the engine started there is a hiss coming from the speakers and once the car is started it turns in to a whine that rises in line with how fast the engine is running. It never done this with the original stereo, could this be an earth issue or the stereo not being as shielded as the original, It does not appear to be with all sources though, any ideas ???

    Sounds like alternator whine, you can get supressors from motor factors etc.

    Is that the device from the lad on VODC ??

    Sounds right did you have to fit a ignition live yourself, I did on my Vectra if not do you have a ignition live to the radio the standard ones dont generally need one as they are turn on via the cars comp. On my multimedia system its the yellow wire is ignition live and red wire live if your using the iso check that there is a wire going to the yellow if not you can a take ignition live from glovebox light (red wire). If you do have ignition live use a tester if you have one and just swap them round should do the trick!

    Wheredid you get your multimedia from mate? I love mine 7" touch screen with WinCE operating system, TV, GPS, SD, USB, DVD etc I have managed to get the GPS to run the lastest TomTom!

    Yes that is the one and yes I did get it from VODC, thanks.

    The dvd is brilliant and sounds fantastic, crap in sunlight though. It has Igo8 sat nav but I prefer Tom Tom so am currently 'trying' to obtain a working version of it !

    Everything seems to play fine apart from a few teething problems. I got no instructions so it is interesting to say the least.

    The radio is meant to be RDS but I cannot figure out how to display the stations name instead of the frequency.

    The time thing is weird, it holds the memory for the radio stations but not the date and time.

    The bluetooth was no good as it came from the factory, the speaker was embedded in the display and was literally only 3mm in size. You could hear the caller but they could not hear you. I removed tha speaker and extended the wires and fitted an external microphone which works great now. You can end a call on the steering wheel but cannot make a call, or not that I have found yet !

    The facia that came with it was brown. A tin of matt black acrylic later and it matches good.

    The guy I got the stereo from said it did not make this sound in his car so I am wondering if it is where the cables are routed picking up inteference ?

    I will post some pictures in the Insignia section when I get it sussed.

    Cool, might need a bit of trial and error to relocate the cables away from things like fans etc.
