    Default Cid screen

    I'm looking at getting the cid screen but don't want the cd70 as I want an aftermarket head unit instead, will it still regain functions of showing mpg, sat nav etc and be able to use steering wheel controls?

    Can you get a cid screen from any Vauxhall model or is there certain ones that will fit the Astra

    Thanks

    You need a cd70 to display sat nav on the cid screen AFAIK. And ideally you need a vx factory unit to retain the steering wheel functions. Not sure if the eonon units utilise the wheel controls or not.

    This is exactly what I want, I could look at a double din sat nav but if the cid still displays mpg etc it's good enough, any other functions from the cid? Parking sensors, reverse cam? Any road cautions etc?

    I get the usual low outside temp warning other than that I use my pioneer for sat nav and reversing camera.

    The cid screen should work fine on a aftermarket head unit. Mine wasn't divorced and works fine.
