    Default Head unit & screen help?

    Hi all.

    The mrs has got me a fancy Alpine HU for Xmas & I've got the fascia etc to fit it, will get the steering control adapter soon too.

    My question is this. I've currently got a CD30 IIRC, has the orange screen & trip computer, washer alert & bulb alert etc.

    is there any way I can upgrade my screen to the colour one from the sat nav model? I'm not keen on the orange screen.

    Its a 54 plate SRI if it makes any difference.

    cheers!

    Just checked & it's a CDR 2005 I currently have & like I say the screen I have is the one with all the trip info, washer level indicator & bulb check etc.

    So if I can find a colour screen from a sat nav model il still be able to use my computer thing on the wiper stalk for consumption & the time/date/range will still work?

    Cheers!

    Oh Eck -
    CDR2005 is half-CAN...
    Half CAN colour screens are a total cow to sort...
    Wiring wise isn't massively too hard, but the programming is a nightmare.
    Only factory fit CID's seem to allow themselves to be programmed for the wiper / computer stalk switch.
    Retro fit displays normally spit their dummies out!!

    Like I said before - Retro fit CID's do not like to be programmed to get the stalk switch to work.

    At this point I would have to say "No it cannot be done".
    There are at least three or four threads about trying to get a retro-fitted CID to operate from the stalk switches.
    All of these have come to the same dead-end.
