Currently have an rcd200 which is pants!lol Read a few things about swapping stereos and it’s not that straight forward as you’d think! Wiring and battery drain being the main issues? I’ve been looking...

    Hi all, Does anyone know where the O.E. right hand side cable that runs to the rear speaker on a 2001 T4 Velle is routed? Mine has a cable poking out from under the carpet, by the rear wheel arch on the left hand side, but no sign of a cable under the carpet on the right hand side :confused...

    So, I picked up a 2011 T5 Caravelle a couple of weeks ago and, as there was no Aux in socket in the glove box but the option could be selected on the RCD310 that is't come with, I have bought an Aux in wire with a plan to install it in said glove box. However, today when I removed the stereo for...

    I've seen a few posts but most are a little old... So it's for a T5 2007, believe currently I have an RCD200 fitted so will a double din just slot right in or will it need a facia? Would like DAB but it's not a deal breaker. iPod and Bluetooth are a must! :ILU: Would I need this...

    Hi, have just installed an Eonon e1012 everything works well apart from the radio, it goes out of frequency after a while whilst driving. I have the antenna adapter and there is a blue wire but I'm unsure where this should be connected to, and is this the problem?:*

    I love my new van, but I miss being able to plug in my Ipod. I hadn't realised how many tunes I've downloaded until having to revisit my old CD collection! Can I simply plug something into the back of the RCD200 to create an Mp3 socket? The booklet mentions an Mp3 CD, what on earth is that...

    I've just installed a Kenwood DNX520VBT in a 2010 t5 but couldn't work out how/where to attach it to the ignition. In the end we attachedit he red wire to the yellow 12v wire so it would work, but I think I'd like it to turnoff when the ignition is off rather than continuous power. Hope this...
