    Default Adding a CID to a CDC40

    Firstly why did Vauxhall not make a CDC40 NAVI??
    Or a CD70 with DAB???

    Anyway I have a CDC40 with Mono screen.
    I am looking to update to a CID or Colour Screen.
    Most Colour screens on ebay seem to be paired with CD70's.

    Does it need Tech2 to divorce a CID from a CD70?
    It is the CID or the CD70 or both that need to be divorced??

    As I currently understand it, it is the CD70 that needs to be divorced/married to/from the screen, and tech2 is the only way to do this.
    But a CDC40 can be divorced/married to/from a screen with non approved sortware??

    Thanks

    The colour screen needs divorcing from the cdc70 and then it can be married to your cdc40

    Sorry, not made my question clear.
    Is it the head unit OR the CID OR both that needs divorcing.

    Can I buy a CD70+CID which are married, not divorce the CID from the CD70, fit the CID to my car, marry it to my CDC40 and leave the CD70 wondering where it all went wrong???

    If you use Vauxcom, then they are both divorced simultaneously from each other and the car.

    If you use Tech 2 / Tech 3 / TIS2Web, then they are divorced indevidually..
    Personally I would divorced them both to be on the safe side - and to do a proper job.

    I am not 100% convinced that a CD70 with the aux-in facility could NOT be made to run a DAB unit.

    It just happens that the CDC40 has the aux-in fitted as standard, and it is these same wires that are used to receive the audio in signal from the DAB box.

    As far as I am aware, nobody has successfully done this, but then a lot of the DAB and CD70 experiment stuff was done before anyone knew much about the need for the aux-in modification.

    Note also that if you have them, then the DAB box and UHP (Telephone Portal) will also need to be divorced and paired at the same time as the display and head-unit.

    Also - if DAB can be made to work, then it will only be selectable by drop down folder at the top of the display screen.

    Okay Cristian -

    Being the CD70 God that I know you are,
    If you cannot get it to work, then nobody could.

    Thanks Robsey, you're certainly busy tonight.
    All these posts, it must be all us peeps having an extra day off and thinking about all the mods we would like to do.

    Cristian, thanks for the info. I am only thinking about adding a colour screen at the moment. But maybe Vauxhall/opel could have made disk 6 on the CDC40 changer a sat nav disk.

    No worries, they keep me out of trouble...
    besides I have a load more queries to answer on another two forums

    The problem with the DVD100, is that I don't think we have any in the UK... Highest spec I've ever seen is the CD70.

    If we do have them in the UK, then they are rarer than rocking horse gonads. And definately none for sale anywhere.
