Double din

How easy is it to fit a dubble din satnav unit into the scooby?
The standard one is crap imo,

Re: Double din

The silver fascia just pulls off, if it's like this one. Once you pull it off there are 6 screws holding the headunit bracket on and i think the new unit should plug in with the iso connector. We have/had professional installs so didn't do it ourselves. Will have again once they get refitted. We smashed both our scoobies up on December 2nd (hit black ice). One is getting repaired and the other has been replaced with a UK300. The headunit we have is the Kenwood DNX8220BT

Re: Double din

That unit looks well smart, who did you get to install it? Does the surround need modified?

It was installed at Advanced Audio Solutions in Bothwell just off the Raith interchange. Fits perfect, no modifications needed to fit.

How would you rate the 8220BT?
I'm planning to get a double-din with sat nav. I was looking at this or the Alpine IVR-W505R but I have read that the sat nav add on for Alpine is poor.
