    Default Screens - Double or Single DIN??

    I'm sure this has been discussed many-a-time.....

    But what are peoples preferences on these??

    IMO a double din would be to low down.....

    and a single DIN would look ok, but it would obscure the top display....

    Also, is the top display still active when using an aftermarket head-unit??

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Double din always (IMO), I think a single din looks out of place in a Vec dashboard personally, but it's all down to personal choice.

    As for the dash display working, it depends entirely on the head unit you buy. Most don't give the stereo information anymore (although other info works fine still), if you spend enough then you can get one that will, my Alpine unit was £700 and £300 for the sat nav add on, and another £100 for the module to let it talk to the steering wheel and screen, but it does display the info on the screen.

    What it looks like in my current car.



    And some older ones in my previous Vec C showing the screen working.
