What audio unit should I put here? I like simple design and I dont like touchscreens.
Also audio unit thread.
used to be a sony fan but i recently got a pioneer and am very impressed with it. Almost identical to this one. Looks tasteful enough and sounds better than the sonys i've had.
How modern are you talking about? Anything made in the last 10 years has a fascia like that. Sure, the back of it is double din but they all have that face. You just need a new faceplate to swap in an aftermarket one but then you might lose oem functionality
quite a few modern cars also have other functionality tied in the same area.
My outback has the aircon controls and hazards on the same facisa so the aftermarket also needs to relocate a few buttons.
oh how i wish i had a double din just for this feature.
if I could throw my cell phone in there while playing music off of it, or keep my swisher packet with blunts pre-rolled in it to keep from crushing 'em.
Life would be great.
OP back home. Thanks to you all, but Im searching for 2 din radio. This one look interesting
also Sony have interesting unit
The goat of ALL TIME basic stock looking aftermarket stereo.
They actually come stock in some early 2000s BMWs
Stock looking for some shit 90's civic maybe.
I just bought a pioneer unit that has the light settings you can customize.
When it's night time, it literally matches the faded yellow lighting that's already stock in my 1984 Buick
>everything's removable with enough oxy-acetylene anon.
>Blank plate, better than the stock unit.
>tfw ferd sync 2
>tfw every time I get into the fucking car I have to hit the voice control button and say USB, or bluetooth audio
jesus fucking christ why can it automatically connect either and recognize them, but not automatically start playing the music
I bought 86 without factory stereo (it was extra money and only touchscreen). I will propably go for the Sony one, I own an xperia.
If I wanted a head unit that looked like it was out of the 70s but had some modern features (mostly just AUX) what would my options be?
One of those shaft style radios with aux and usb would look kind of retro I guess.
>they also have some with the old school tuner
I live in Europe, so no Scions here. Also who the fuck buy Scion when you can get original Toyota? As I said, touchscreen audio unit was optional and cost 850$. Standard was without audio unit.
The one from Jaycar is a re branded kienzle
>also green lighting is disgusting
Since I want to make my life inconvenient, I'm thinking about installing a tape player instead of a pioneer unit which emits light equivalent of a small star during my nightly drives.
Is there any good bluetooth solutions with a high quality fm transmitter that you know of that can be hidden behind the radio?
This one is super classy too
>also made by kienzle
Sadly I have 2din space, I need to modify it if I want this cool radio.
One of them retro looking Beckers or this Blaupunkt with the built in speakers
Its been done before.
I like this look better than the little slot below the radio.
That sounds like it would be more complicated/expensive than just buying a less flashy deck with bluetooth
There's a variety of DIN slot storage solutions, you can get trays with or without lids.
Yeah that sucks.
Would love one of those with minidisc since I'm one of the few who still use that format regularly at home, would make it easy to just bring the disc I'm listening to at the time
If the harness in your car hasn't been cut up just buy the proper adapter and hook up the stereo connector to it.
It will plug into the factory harness and radio. Sometimes you can buy a harness that is plug and play for your new radio
>iso standard harnesses are made for most cars
Just don't be a hack job and cut off the factory harness like the PO of my car.
Why do all cheap aftermarket stereos look like shit?
And what's with their obsession with blue lights?
