    In my 2005 S Line i have the BOSE symphony double din unit, ive not really found out its full potential yet but i have just found out an ipod connection can be added, is this true and where would i go about getting one? Also as the unit looks pretty dated, what are my options in a replacement, what have you guys got?

    Cheers

    nice looking head unit but I use to work as a audio fitter. I would not recommend any unit apart from Pioneer or Alpine. it does look tempting at that price but the sound quality is poor from most of these units. don't get me wrong most people might not notice but when I have had a car set up for sound quality and jumping to best quality to medium quality you can tell the difference. when I brought my A4 it must have bose or I was not buying it. I might sound anal about it but I own a diesel the engine does not produce the best sound lol so at least the music should be at a decent quality.

    I don't know if this would work with bose sound systems.

    however at another point of view it supports Microsoft Windows CE.Net 6.0

    so you might be able to port it and plug a OBD 2 code reader to it and have live engine data when your driving.

    You get what you pay for. That is suspiciously cheap for so comprehensive a list of features.
