    confused GIDs/CIDs/TIDs/MIDs

    I'm going to upgrade my TID in my 05 1.8LS to a GID (or something along those lines!!).

    What else can I put in there? Would a Vectra B GID work? Widescreen Vectra C? Insignia Console?

    I also need to source a new Indicator stalk with the BC function and I think I need Tech 2 as well..........

    Suggestions welcome.

    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : Energy

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 131,000

    I am going to assume that an 05 Vectra will have a CD30, and therefore a full CAN triple info display.

    In which case, you would need a Full CAN display as follows
    BID (Board Info Display) if you just want Board computer functions
    GID (Graphic Info Display) if you want a less pixelly display, board computer functions and graphic symbols on your check control (if you have it enabled).

    You MUST get the display from a October 2004 (UK 54 plate) or later Vectra-C / Signum (fitted with CD30, CDC40, CD50 or CD70 and where fitted - scroller wheel controls)

    Astra-H / Zafira-B items would also fit, but are nigh on impossible to pair up to a Vectra-C head-unit.. due to code indexing etc..

    You could get a matching pair (Head unit and display) from a Meriva, Zafira-B, Astra-H, Corsa-D or a full CAN Vectra-C / Signum..
    But again programming requires the operator to select the donor vehicles details (model, year etc) to enable BC and Check control functions, or to change variance configuration functions...

    If you have the CDR2005 radio / head-unit, then your car cannot be a 2005 vehicle, so all the comments that I have written above are totally irrelevant.

    You must only use displays from the 2002 to 2004 (Half CAN) Vectra-C or Signum - absolutely no other vehicles due to wiring differences.
    Definately not Vectra-B nor Omega-B
