    From what I understand you are trying to see if you can get the unit in your ebay link to work in your car...

    If your car is full can bus then it is plug and play but if it's half can bus then you will need an adapter lead like this one... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2709064605...84.m1423.l2649

    I recently looked into this and contacted the manufacturer of this lead and they have confirmed these types of head units will work with this lead although you may need to conect up a wire for the steering wheel controls to work...

    All you need to do is work out if you are half can bus or full can bus. In simple terms if you have three buttons on you stearing wheel then your half can bus and if you have 2 buttons and a scrole wheel then you are full can bus.

    If you are half can then you should be able to control the BC computer using the siper stalk (if you have this alread) but if not then you will be able to control the BC functions still using the scole wheel but may not be able to control the head unit unless you wire it up correctly.

    Hope this helps.

    I was seriously considering getting this head unit for my car. Same as you 3 buttons half can so would need the adapter and run three wires to the steering wheel controls.
    They sent me a video of the operation of sat nav etc and it didn't seem much cop. I want to see it in person though so if you get one I'll pop on the fast cat and have a look

    This is what I got from them when asking questions

    For some reason the link says it requires a password

    http://s1182.photobucket.com/albums/x448/A-Sure2008/?action=view&current=2-zoneforWinCE60.mp4&mediafilter=videos

    cut and paste the above link into a new window and it will come up
