    Arrow cd70 bluetooth upgrade

    Am looking to retrofit bluetooth to my 2008 facelift vectra c hatch fitted with the cd70 sat nav stereo.
    have seen part number for the bracket, control unit, microphone.
    Is this all you need for the system to work.
    Do you need to upgrade the car aerial and use the cradle or can you just put the phone in your pocket and pair the device?
    I also notice that people say some of the wiring is in the car but the control unit wiring is missing?
    Does anyone have the part number for the harness?
    Have looked on the 2008 TIS and EPC for the part number to no avail.
    spoke to the parts man at my local dealer and he says you defo cannot retrofit the system.
    What upgrades/activations will need to be carried using the tech2 to get the system to work effectively?
    Many thanks in advance for any assistance on this matter.
    Dave.

    It is well worth it Andyl did mine last May but after his recent news I would give him and Jo a couple of weeks not nice losing a baby, but the cost was about £350 and 3-4 hours work including DrTech2 and his magic box.

    Another case of Vx mis-informing their customers.

    Thanks for that, I will get in touch with him in a month or so. I know what he is going though, I lost 2 years ago.

    But I now got a 4 month old. So best way is just to keep trying.

    I hope he & is wife are ok & if he reads this. I am sorry for your loss.
