Hello,Has any one replaced there CD head unit? I have ,for its model, a standard fitment Sony single disc unit (which I believe is called a double din unit?) and would like a head unit with usb port on the front.Looked in Halfords and they have a Alpine CDE-W203Ri.Let me know your thoughts, I think its best to stay with the double din size.Regards Steve
If you read the specifications for the units, they include the sentence, "OEM Steering wheel remote wired interface capability" so yes, they do.
They also have customisable back lighting so that you can match it to the rest of the dash lighting.The XCarlink also works via the steering wheel controls in the same way as a CD autochanger, which the device emulates when connected to a compatible head unit. It can play common music files from SD cards or USB sticks with the correct file structure. It will also read the mass storage memory of USB connected MP3 players if the same file structure is used.Another unit which caught my eye was the JVC KW-XR811http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JVC-KW-XR8...ht_1750wt_1185
Which also includes Bluetooth for your phone and for streaming audio. They also make the cheaper but less well specced 611 and 411, but at £171 the 811 would seem to tick all your boxes.
