After Market HU

Post by The Kippaxkid » Wed Jun 08, 2016 2:39 pm

I bought my 2015 Corsa E 1.4. Eco last month and was not impressed with the R3.0 Intellilink unit. I was toying with the idea of replacing this with a Android HU but the Facia and steering wheel interface was £199 on its own so decided to go into developer mode to try to access mirrorlink. Like a complete KNOB I bricked my unit which forced me to go with the above idea. Funny how things were meant to be.

I opted for the Xtrons TD702AB which cost me £189 off ebay and I got the Facia kit/Steering Wheel interface from Halfords (they price matched the internet at £199). Halfords also fitted it for me for a miserly £30 (took them 3hrs...lol).

Anyway I am well chuffed with the results. What do you think? Note: The interior is Red but the light makes it look Orange.

Cool! Lots of apps displayed. How much of it communicates with phone e.g Google Maps is it mirrored or stand-alone. And if stand-alone how does it communicate with Internet?

It is Wifi and 3G enabled (although you need to purchase 3G dongle). I just tether from my phone hotspot. It also has GPS so I just download Satnav from Goole Play. You can mirror through either USB or Wifi. You can play your music through either bluetooth or through USB/SD and phone cnnect via bluetooth.

Brilliant.

Parking sensors presumably just beep (if you have them) and more advanced driver assist won't work?

I do not have parking sensors but my door & seat belt chimes still work and all my steering wheel controls also work.

That looks great. Does it work with the steering wheel controls or not? :)

What was the kit to fit it?

Is it the connect 2 kit?
