    Hi guys,

    Just bought a car that came with a sony CDX-f7500. Nice unit but did not come with the remote. The manual states that I need to depress the menu button to access some settings. I cannot see the menu button on the unit and it seems like I can only access these settings from the remote. This sounds real stupid by Sony !!! Anyone know anything about this please, can I use a universal remote, lol.

    Any info would be most helpful, many thanks.

    Hi ayub,

    thanks for that. The unit is unlocked, so no problems there. Are you saying that the mode button on the unit is the menu button on the remote ? I am not sure if this is correct. As the remote has seperate buttons for menu and mode.

    And when I press mode, nothing happens. Do you have a similar unit ?

    I recommend the Sony Remote Commander too - it plugs straight into the remote blue socket on the back of the head unit and sticks on the side of your steering column just like a normal indicator - lots of nifty buttons on it to give you full control of the stereo whilst you are driving too.
