    Does anyone know of HU that will work with Vauxhall OEM display unit, I know Kenwood D-Mask units will but they are too much, looking for a single CD or a HU with autochanger control, MP3 not necassary but display compatibility is. For the Missus Corsa like. Not fussed on tape so CD or MD and Sub £200 if you know of any where that can.
    Cheers
    PS I just lost my ICE Virginity so be gentle

    If you are refering to the display with the time, temp etc then they all will.Only thing is when the h/u powers up then the date will vanish ( who the hell needs to know the date while driving ?:confused: ), it will return when you switch off the h/u again.If you want to retain it then cutting the signal wire is nessesary iirc it's red with a white tracer but i can find out if you wish.

    She wants to keep that display as the DIN slot is a bit low to see which track etc is being used. It's a minor thing but you know women. the simplest thing is to buy a vauxhall HU but they are so overpriced its not funny. Might try and get one from a scrappy or a dealer that does P/X on installs.

    Sticky message I think!

    This gets asked all the time

    My MD Deck displays happily on the Vauxhall display!

    I have the full display with fuel consumption and range!

    Doing a search will bring up this thread. I don't think it needs a sticky.

    Seen them at Sony centres and Halfords I think

    Sony MD decks are ok, well mine is - better than the Delco CD I removed.

    Sony MDX ???? 5970
    DOPS002
    Infinty 605cs

    I may get a CD changer next!!!

    DOPS 001 has been dropped - for the temperature only displays

    DOPS002 is not much more and supports the full display

    Mine was £70

    as to DOPS001 it is worth getting 002 if you swap the car.

    As to head units I'm afraid I don't know

    Well thats al right then, this is starting to look expensive!
    Sony CDXMP40 £125 + £10 del
    VAU01DIS Display interface £60
    or
    DOPS002 still looking for a retailer! £60 approx
    PC2-04-4 Harness Adapter £11
    PC5-27 Aerial adapter£3 (not sure if i need one of these)

    Total parts! £210 ish and i have to fit it myself! Alot for a £130 CD player.LOL
    Thanks for the help guys i wont be fitting it for a couple of weeks as i have exams until the end of the month but I am sure I will be needing some help to fit it when i do. Unless of course i can get it fitted for under £230 i which case i'll pay the difference!

    I think the cable adaptor may be included with the display driver, if I remember right

    H/U ->
    Supplied cable with H/U ->
    Display Ad Cable ->
    Car wiring

    Dispaly driver also plugs into CD connector

    An extract from an email from halfords:
    Thank you for contacting Halfords Direct.

    The Sony CDX-MP40 is priced @ £199.99
    The PC2-04-4 is priced @ £10.99
    The PC5-28 Is priced @ £4.99
    The DOPS002 is priced @ £50.00

    These items may need to be ordered in on special order
    So i have got the DOPS002 down to £50 which is bettter, i wouldn't buy the HU from halfords but the cables are competitive!
