    Thumbs up A little info required

    Im looking to replace the standard cd30 in my vectra to get one of those new double din thingys.

    This is where i need your help/input

    I believe that i need a additonal cable to use the steering wheel control?

    Do i need any other cables?

    Other posts i have read say you may need a facia plate as well? Do you?

    Will i lose the display screen functions? Mpg radio and time?

    If there any thing specifc i should be looking for when buying a double din unit?

    Thanks

    Yes, you will need one to use steering wheel controls

    Yes, the main ISO adaptor, this will be a "plug & play" item.

    Yes, You'll need a facia surround, You can get the same colour as your dash. It just fills the gap and helps support the new unit.

    No, your computer (Mileage, MPG etc), and clock will still remain. As for the radio names, I know with Kenwood Units you can get an adaptor to put the radio text on the display. But if like mine, the date will be displayed when the unit is off, and will either go blank or stay on when you switch the unit on

    A lot depends on which head unit you buy. Some are supported by the wheel controls and others aren't. Bigger names such as Alpine, JVC, Kenwood etc are ok and the leads are available for them.
    Try a few audio specialist sites.
