    Default Suggestions Please

    Ok, Im looking for a new single din head unit for the vectra, wife wants the following:

    Bluetooth - for hands free calling
    Ipod - Be able to control the ipod through the stereo
    Control - Be able to control the head unit from the seering wheel controls

    I'd like the head unit to charge the ipod as well, can anyone suggest a few head units with the above features, saw a nice Sony mex-bt3600u but dont think that it will charge / be able to control the ipod through the head unit?

    Mmmmm not too suree mate. But with the remote control it gives you the added feature for changing stations etc. Failing that Google the model number that may give you a bit more info on it hth.

    hmmm I just read a review on the head unit and someone said you had to scroll through each album in order, im now wondering if having the ipod interface is the right move. If the ipod is connected to a ipod interface does the ipod lock out or could you control the ipod itself.

    What I mean by lock out is when you plug an ipod into a usb you cant control the ipod, wonder if its the same

    whatever you choose mate as aftermarket, think about additional costs if your budget is low:
    -fascia adaptor (20 pounds)
    -fakra-to-ISO connector, Brand (ie: Kenwood)-to-ISO connector
    -steering control module (about 50 pounds)
    -CANBUS module for ignition logic (otherwise the HU needs to be hardwired to direct power and needs to be switched on-off manually each time)

    steering stalk can be done for any brand, check caraudiodirect for iPod friendly models.
