    Default DVD install advice req'd

    I'm just about to order either Pioneer AVH-P5700DVD or the Kenwood KVT-627DVD (still open to any suggestions but veering towards the Pioneer as it says it'll autoswitch to the rear view camera when reverse is selected, I don't know if the Kenwood will do this). My main question is that of wiring harnesses or whatever. Its all going into a June '06 Veccie Design and not quite sure what I need. wtf is a CANBUS anyway????

    Cheers guys

    Hi,

    I have got the Kenwood 627-DVD and can't recommend it enough. I am not awear of the Pioneer spec so can't comment on that. The Kenwood does have the facility for the the reverse camera.

    It took about 1 hour to fit the Kenwood, fitting the brains underneath the passenger seat. Everything works really well including the steering remote. The only thing I found dissapointing is the lack of interface to Vx display. As you can run the unit when the screen is closed, it would have completed things to have basic information such as radio station etc displayed.

    I like the fact that it can be expaned with stuff like the new Garmin sat nav unit, DAB tuner etc, depends on your budget!!

    HTH

    not sure on radio spec's but CANBUS is Controller Area Network Bus system basically it is a multiplexed system with 2 wires(twisted pair) that have a lot of different signals going down them i.e to radio
    speed dependent volume control
    ignition on/off
    powered antenna on/off
    reverse sensor
    if you fit aftermarket radio you will need to find another ign supply for radio(unless it has can l and can h on it)
    you can use phone loom(if fitted thin black wire check first as 2 one is radio mute) or red wire on back of heater controls
