Aftermarket HU- Do I need CANBUS adaptor?
I have a 2005 A3 Sportback SE with a non-BOSE Concert2, no multi-function steering wheel. Have been thinking about changing the HU as I need mp3 also would like built-in bluetooth.
Really like Beckers Grand Prix units - smart simple OEM look:cool:, but @ £300 bit more than I (the wife! :whip:) wants to pay really. Am now considering Blaupunkt Hamburg MP68 as it has all the features I want and the display colour can be changed to red (shame about the big blue spot) and it can be had for less than £200. If anyone has any other suggestions that look good in an Audi and have bluetooth?
Before I go ahead thought I should check out what else I need, was going to get the CANBUS interface till I saw the price (£100!). I read on another forum that the speed signal can be taken from the speedo? the illumination signal from somewhere?! and the switched live from a fuse? Am I right? If someone could confirm where I can find these connections and how I access them! :anbet:
There is nothing else the CANBUS interface would provide is there? So all I need is a fascia, aerial adapter ?PC5-52 and ISO adapter ??PC9-401
Am I missing something??
