Naturally ;D

Fortunately most manufacturers have some level of common sense ;D

Remind me not to buy a Merc or a VW....

I had an older version of THIS in my Omega

As for the reversing camera, the one one my 370z is fixed under the tailgate grab handle above the number plate.

Just merely giving my view on what I've seen of cars on the road, in the car park here, most I've seen are popup.

I ended up getting one of these:

150 for an ex display model from Halfrauds, it came complete and in its box :)

It looks like I might need to doctor the Vauxhall facia adaptor I bought though, the cage and the head unit surround are slightly too large for the adaptor.

You have the correct adaptor :y

Be sure to remove the original cage first... one screw at the back and release the plugs as you remove it.

I bought a universal double din cage and it now all fits perfectly.  I'll get the headunit installed after I've dealt with all the oily stuff.

I have an old Blaupunkt Pasadena DJ with 10 disc multi changer which is in beautiful condition.The trouble is to fit it I'd have to source new speakers and re-wire the system[as mine is Bose] which is acomplete faff however a replacement CCR2006 would -from prices I've seen-cost a stupidly high amount of money for what is potentially an 18yr old head unit.

I think you are going to struggle with that level of kit, eBay stuff at this price will be Chinese tat that will probably last for 5 mins. The quality will be poor, the video will be poor, it won't react to your steering wheel like factory fit jobbies.

Fit bluetooth to your current factory fit radio and standard GM parking sensor retro fit, will be best combination and most reliable.

Factory fit cams tend to pop down/up when reverse is engaged, if always there it's going to get covered in road muck and be next to useless.  :-\

Hi Tunnie.

Sorry to sound dim, but can you give me some idea how to achieve that? I have a CCR 2002 in my 2.6V6. I wouldn't know where to start, but I like the idea of Bluetooth for streaming my music. :y

Aha! I think I've answered my own question. Do you mean this retrofit?

Yes  :y

Mine has been working perfectly since I did that mod last year, wish I had done it years ago. I bought a bluetooth adaptor that is re-charagable, that plugs into that 3.5m jack.

Then pair my phone and it streams away fine, battery lasts around 2 weeks for me. Should really hard wire in power for it, but I'm not good enough to do that.

Sure yours is a 2002? Not a 2006? That mod works, because you steal the CD changer feed.

Ah, yes. It's a CCR2006. Cheers, Tunnie.  :y
