Stereo replacement
#1
Having bought our berlingo xtr and I want to change the stereo. Single din looks to be straight forward. What functionality will I lose from the computer?

The ability to set the time and date on the clock is the main thing you'll lose. There are adaptors for the steering wheel stalk to over come this though.

Double din isn't anymore hassle to fit over single din, if I were going to the trouble of fitting an after market stereo then a full double din touchscreen satnav with carplay/mirrorlink would be the way I'd go.

Ordered a CT10CT01 ISO harness adaptor, just need to choose my head unit next.

In my L200 I have basic JVC with bluetooth, no CD player and a mic for handsfree and it works brilliantly. Might just go for the same but with CD player. I did see a Pioneer smartphone receiver but unsure of its usefulness and no CD player; i often buy a CD on a journey so like to have a player.

CD players are disappearing, a lot of new cars dont come with them. You can always buy music en route via iTunes (or similar) or just get a Spotify subscription.

Fitted a pioneer double din, touch screen today looks nice except you can see the top of the heater knobs and white clips ?. I'll have to cut part of the tray that I removed to cover them

I received a Pioneer SPH-DA130dab 2 DIN head unit for Christmas. Halfords had quite a good offer and having read the threads here decided to have it fitted. Booked in before just before Christmas I had bought a reversing camera on Ebay and a powered DAB antenna. I fitted the antenna to the roof but had not threaded the cables behind the dash. I also removed the tailgate trim and threaded the camera cables from the interior.
The installer did quite a good job and finished off installing the camera even though it had not come from Halfords. However the Autoleads adapter did not produce a power feed of allow the steering column control to function. I took it away with a power feed taken from the fuse board in the glove box. Bring it back in January he said. He had ordered in a Connects2 adapter and this didn't work either so he phones Halfords tech support and gets some more numbers to order that are not on their normal system! Third time lucky I think but no - this system does't work either. Not much of a surprise as the packaging said it was for Renault! Installer is on jury service next week so I bring it home (luckily not very far) and phone Car Audio Centre, they sent a different Connects2 lead and a Pioneer adapter which I fitted myself and it all works, including the stalk controls. FYI it was Connects2 CTSCT003.2 steering control adapter (£39.99) and Pioneer multi stalk patch lead (£4.99), free postage.
