    New Head Unit? Anyone?

    Hi All,

    I have just taken off my speaker covers broke a clip off one which is in the door( but isnít causing a problem). However I discovered that someone has already upgraded them. Sooo I am now going to upgrade the head unit. Does any one have any recommends for a good head unit. (The new speakers in the car are sony)

    Or I guess any websites where I can check reviews (im by no means a sound master, but it would be great to get a good one)

    Let me know,
    Many thanks,
    Mark

    How much are you looking to spend.
    Have a look at the JVC AVX44.
    It's won awards, built in bluetooth, all touchscreen, plays dvds on a mini screen, ipod compatible etc

    Do you live over here?
    I'm looking to replace mine at some point but have mainly been looking for bluetooth units.

    How about Sony MEX-BT3600U?
    Not very ipod compatible but other then that has great reviews. Can't remember the price but you can get the 2600 version for under 100

    Car audio direct has them but they have the avx44 on offer so it works out cheaper then the others. I've seen it in halfords and visually it looks amazing, also comes with a remote I think.

    I have no idea, just differences in screen size i think.

    teh only thing im un sure about is some of them say they need your hand break up to make the screen work but im not sure how they know this unless installing is really complicated!

    Legally you are supposed to connect a cable to the handbrake switch, but if you connect it to earth at any point it will work just fine all the the time
