    Sorry, are you looking to keep it genuine VX?

    If so, guessing your half canbus like mine, (Buttons and not scroll wheels on the steering wheel?) you only really have the NCDC 2013 or 2015 Navi setups to look at, with either a GID (Orange) or CID (Colour and Maps) displays.

    Then, to be honest, a parrot Bluetooth or similar would be easier to fit.

    But can you just confirm what stereo you have? Are you sure its a CDR 70?

    never ask a spotty youth to check the stereo , its a cdr 2005 , the 70 is in the spotty youths car , my apologies , i was thinking about upgrading but keeping it to a vauxhall unit as i dont like aftermarket looks , do they not do one with a cd changer built in the head unit? thanks

    The NCDC 2013 and 2015 have a 4 disc changer cassette with a 2nd CD slot (Top) for the SATNAV disc.

    Given the revised info, you have two options basically. The NCDC 2013/15 option as above, or the CCR2006 (tape player and 4 disc CD changer). The latter is basically a straight swap - you'll need the cage from a CCR 2006 as well. The NCDC option requires a bit of Tech 2 stuff and making sure it's been properly de-programmed from the donor car.

    And if not deprogrammed from the car it can still work but will cost you at a decoding firm.

    Hi all many thanks as usual , i feel the satnav option is beyond me with my limited knowledge and my remoteness from an auto electrician ,so its the built in cd changer option , is the sound quality any better? , if the satnav option was easier to complete i would , do i need another screen? cheers for now , Alan

    CCR2006 is definitely superior sound wise to the CDR2005.
