    You need to get an amplifier kit for the aerial, [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica][FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica][FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica][FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica][FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica][FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica][FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica][FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica][FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica][FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica][FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]PC5-90 on this site mate[/FONT]

    The blue wire is power for the adapter, needs to connect to "power antenna" blue wire on new HU.

    thought it might be, but worth checking rather than blowing it :)
    I have just got the new pioneer DEH-P700BT http://www.pioneer.co.uk/uk/products/25/121/61/DEH-P700BT/index.html

    but can I hell get the illumination color to change or pair it to my phone.
    don't need any more problems

    g60 I have the previous model to the one you have without the bluetooth and my illumination is blue only :( and I really wanted an alpine unit that had a red illumination but didnt have the money at the time, so I got the pioneer one instead but I gotta say its a vgood HU.

    And yes the blue wire on the booster connects to the blue one on the HU which if I remember correctly controls electric aerials.
