    Default What do I need to fit a double din unit?

    Just bought myself a Kenwood double din unit. What do I need to to fit this and get it to talk to the bc screen, not worried about the steering wheel rollers as want to keep them working the bc?

    Links would help lol

    With the correct adapter for the back of the head unit, it will work with steering wheel controls. You will loose the ability to change the clock and view the test screen no matter what you do though.

    Its a full can car, from what I've worked out the bc will still work using the steering wheel controls. All I need to know is what fitting kit I need to fit the stereo and what adapter to get the radio info up on the screen.

    This is what I've got coming, would imagine it uses iso connectors like most aftermarket units

    looks like you need 2 leads 1 for the stereo and 1 for the steering wheel control
