    pioneer app radio with bose - or any other after market h/u

    I am thinking about swapping out the head unit, as I was going to fit a parrot hands free to hook up my iphone, but its proving be a bit of a pain....so im thinking a new headunit maybe simplier with hands free built in..

    halfords have the pioneer appradio on offer at the moment, and they sell a lead which allows the fitting of aftermarket head unit its to a car with bose..

    but has anyone tried this lead or head unit? as i do like the sound of the oe head unit, but having a more usiable head unit would appreciated

    I have explored many bluetooth head units and hands free, and I keep coming up with the same solution. Jawbone era earpeice for calls, and any other head unit for the music. Even the satnav, cant really compete imo and in my job (similar travelling as a multidrop driver) with a garmin satnav.

    However Of all the units I have tried, pioneer seems to be the best for ease of use and functions.

    Parrot handsfree, sometimes the head unit utilises parrot, is the best in car hands free, but jawbone still beats it.

    In the end I just paid the £47 for the adaptor and I am part way through fitting the parrot mki9200 kit I have.. It's a pain but I read too many conflicting reviews of the app radio to risk it..
