Advice on a new radio/stereo 62 reg XTR

I have a 62 reg multispace XTR Diesel

I want to change the stock radio/cd for a new one with DAB radio and bluetooth for the phone etc 

Can anyone suggest something you have had success with and perhaps a suggestion other than Halfords~ for fitting?

My main concern is the menu option currently controlled via Menu button on the stock radio, [vehicle config] etc , what to do about that

Thank you

The only stations I like are talksport five live and radio 6. Can't really get any of them. With the right aerial dab is fine. I could Bluetooth to my phone I suppose and stream radio. I attached a pic of the screen

I would just go for Bluetooth and stream from a phone. I am in southern Ireland most of the week I can listen to Radio 5 and BBC world service and all UK radio stations without any problem and having a VPN on the phone I have no geographic problems getting blocked transmitions. plus can listen even when travelling in Europe inc TV stations
I swapped out my stock single din unit for a Pioneer MVH-AV280BT.  It is double din, and I wanted to have a back up camera for accurate hitching up of my trailer.  I was able to mount the camera in the high level brake light.  I was fearing that I would have issues with the stalk, but was able to purchase the "control pro unit" which allowed the stalk to work as before.  The only problem that I still have is that I am not able to access the car menu options, and clock settings as from the original radio.  Unless I can find a resolution, I will just have to replug the original one in for a few minutes to up date things.

I did not have Bluetooth, and only a aux in 3.5 mm jack in the original unit.  Now I have a USB port, accepting flash drives, an aux in (although I don't use it) as well as Bluetooth for phone and audio streaming, as well as the back up camera.

I just depends what your needs are.

What I have now is a QI phone stand and an AUKEY bluetooth reciever /mic, with Audio out jack so i can just stream from my phone and make calls etc,
