  • kenwood 8220bt into Zafira

    hi all, ive just purchased the above HU cant wait for it to get here now. What are the delivery times from caraudiosecurity?next day? Would it be beneficial to anyone if i did a step by step how2 with pics?

    I have ordered the HU, ipod video lead, steering wheel control and patch lead, facia plate( i ordered the chrome one, is that right my dash is like a sparkly light silver?) All for under a grand.

    Do i need a can-bus adapter if so which one? so excited

    Did you order one of these?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/PC5-137-Vauxha...1%7C240%3A1318

    And this :-

    plus the patch lead.

    Should be with you on Wednesday if they have everything in stock.

    You have very little access to the rear of the radio and like me struggled to fit all the wires into the space behind the unit to allow it to sit click into place.

              I think you have the wrong ISO lead (the second item on your above list)
              You should have the can-bus adaptor
              http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/pro...s_id/8113.html

              And also the aerial amplifier as i said earlier.

              But to be 100% phone them and check.

                Hi
                Dont think you need the second one down in the list as you have also purchased what looks like the right Wiring adaptor further down. Make sure the
                adaptor you have purchased has the Speed Pulse Wire and Reverse wire for the Navigation side of things, What year is your vehicle???
                The Correct adaptors are CanBus now and as in previous posts the best lead I know that works and still lets you adjust you head up display setting is the Connects2 CTSVX002... Same Manufacturer as the Facia Kit you Bought.
                If you use the CTSVX002 adaptor, all the wiring you need is there, not sure on others?

                http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/pro...s_id/8113.html

                IS NOT the right one but gives you the idea and they must be able to get the CTSVX002.

                You will need the Fakra Amplified aerial adaptor if you wish to pick up MW/LW...

                    just been to my local car audio shop and had a look at the kenwood model above,very nice but they said the only drawback with after market head units with the canbus system is you cannot adjust your clock,so it will be wrong when the clocks change !!!Is this true and do you loose any other functions,ice alert etc.

                      thats right, you heed to get a special lead which grants you access to the menu options to change the clocks. I know VXRCourt has one, but dont know any details. maybe PM him ?

                        There is away for adjusting the clock with the steering wheel buttons.

                        Although I'm not bothered as the time is on the headunit, and I've lost the display.

                          As previously stated the Connects2 lead Part number CTSVX002 will allow all controls and adjustments take place of head up display.
                          For example you can still adjust time and Date etc etc....

                          You have to hold down the bottom left steering wheel button for a few seconds to access menus etc...
