NCDC 2015 questions.
« on: 20 December 2016, 12:13:30 »

I'm considering buying one of these with paired CID. No mention of telematics with it though, so am I correct in thinking it will then be exactly the same as an NCDC 2013 ?
If I wanted to, could I add the telematics unit later, or are they also paired to the headunit and screen?
The CID has a very fine blue line running down the screen. It barely noticeable, but is that a sign that the screen is living on borrowed time ?

The NCDC 2013 unit is designed for the GID and CID without the Telematics Unit, the NCDC 2015 was designed Foe GID/CID and Telematics Unit, main difference was Facia panel and Buttons are different for the Phone Functions and yes they are all paired together.

So in a nut 2013 wont come with Phone, 2015 should have the phone unit, if your thinking about adding a Telematics at a later stage to the 2015 your need all the correct Pairing Codes and ideally the telematics needs to be in Delivery Mode or Depaired correctly from where ever it came from.

If the CID has a fault already (Blue line as you say) then its probably on borrowed time in my opinion.

Its a NCDC 2015 / CID without the telematics unit. Will it work ok, effectively just like a 2013, without the telematics unit ?

Not exactly the same, not "out of the box". But will work just like a NCDC2015/CID but none of the phone functions will work.

But as the CID isn't looking that great, what are you trying to achieve?

You do like to confuse me with those cryptic replies.  ;D
Im trying to achieve having a colour screen rather than mono, as it looks so much better.
Just had a thought. Do I need to check its Bose enabled, or were they all Bose enabled anyway ?

It must have come from an Omega, as the NCDC2015 was only otherwise fitted to Vectra/Signum, and that would be with an incompatible screen.

Fairly certain it was only offered (as an option) on Elites.  Thus likely to have Bose.  Its a tech2 job to turn bose on and off, all are Bose-able

Yep, came from an Omega. Will double check about the Bose though, as knowing my luck it would be the only non Bose one ever made. ;D
Do you have an opinion on the fine blue line that runs down the screen ?

NCDC2013 and NCDC2015 are identical except for the legends on some buttons.  Its a tech2 job to switch between them.  A NCDC2015 configurd as a NCDC2013 will obviously have some of the buttons doing strange things - eg, the green phone symbol will normally dial the dialled number on a 2015, but will tell the Satnav to navigate you home on a 2015 configured as a 2013. On a 2013, that button has a Home legend.

Is it over the black parts of the screen as well (eg when unit is off, but ign on, so Vauxhall logo is displayed)?

So the repeat and info buttons are replaced by SOS and OnStar buttons ?
Don't remember using the repeat and info buttons on mine, so probably wont miss them.  :D

Don't know, but can ask. Link to said unit below.

I'd say that is probably driver board, as its there all the time, but could be LCD panel.
