  • New double din screen

    Hi all, I currently have the standard black centre console and original radio on my MK5 astra vxr.

    Im looking to fit a touchscreen radio/dvd player in it after christmas.

    Can anyone recommend a screen they have already fitted to replace the standard console in the astra and where they have bought from

    Cheers all

    depends on your budget mate . I'm cash challenged as a teacher so I bought an xtrons one second hand. Can't fault it for th money tbh, not perfect but more than good enough. Looks OEM. If I had more money, Eonon. If money isn't an issue then vxmmi, and if OEM factory look wasn't a desirable, then any high end pioneer. My mates Evo has an amazing pioneer one forgot the mdoel, but cost an insane amount of money.

    If you go for unbranded/generic chinese similar to mine, then for the money you cant rally argue. Most have websites eg. xtrons. Eonon UK is always out of stock, so that's an import job with import tax to pay on top. VXMMI and Pioneer no issues with any of that and I imagine if you have any issues with the unit its not a ***** to sort i.e. send to some overseas place costing a fortune.

      It looks very similar to the Eonon ones on ebay but they are £230+ on there is there much difference?

        I have an older model of that yeah. As far as I know there isnt much difference. Eonon have a slightly better reputation but the lack of UK stock at a reasonable price put it beyond my price bracket.

            Mine do yep. The only thing that is supposed to work but doesn't, is in the UI it has a screen for the buttons featured on the original cd30/40/70 (presumably to access things like changing the clock for daylight saving etcby using settings, bc buttons etc). I haven't needed them for anything other than that though. If you have tech 2 or the knock off alternatives you can change the time through that method instead on your MFD/BID/GID/CID.

            I'm not sure about what other functions you may potentially lose as I have a crummy BID screen. After a CID at the right price lol.
