Vectors C no good.

You would need a paired NCDC 2013/5 and GID/CID

GPS unit as well. Bit of a faff, lasers for reading sat nav discs will be shot by now as well

Got a VW, Audi, Skoda or Seat? I have full Diagnostic software VCDS to read and program your car. Need something enabling? Perhaps full diagnostic? Drop me a PM. Can diagnose in Camberley or Osterley Area.

Vectra C set up is not compatible, your need a NCDC (Bose configured) and a Paired Screen from an Omega.

However, to elaborate, you need either a HU that has correctly been unpaired from the screen or both units from the same car. In both cases with the Car Pass details of the car they came from.

If you can get both units and the Car Pass, then you can plug both into your Omega and unpair them in order to pair the existing screen to the head unit.

Shop carefully as you can end up purchasing a brick almost as efficiently as going to a builders merchant...

Robsey had one for sale recently, although I think hes not keen on posting stuff ?

If your installing in a lower spec car you would also need the ariel and cable to go with it.
I installed one in mine, but it was just upgrading from MID to CID, so just a matter of swapping headunit and screen.

You'll need to do a bit of loom modification and addition, if fitting to a lower spec car (eg. no HID's, different size wheels) the screen will need programming to match the spec.

Nav lasers can be replaced and are still available, using original 'unscratched' media is essential for longetivity of the laser.

Vectra C had two versions I believe - 1/2 CAN and full CAN, the full CAN version won't work in an Omega as the only part of a CANbus loom in an Omega is between HU and Screen.

Also need to select Bose mode depending on what your output setup is.

Needs a genuine Tech II really, the various 'cheap' code readers are notorious for bricking NCDC's

Pre facelift ie '02-'05 is half CAN, post is full and readily identified by headlight shape/scrollwheel controls on the steering wheel and CD.. HUs ;)

No Vectra-C screen is compatible. So don't even begin to investigate that, you'll waste your time.

Although the half CAN Vectra-C screen looks the same, its electronically very different.  The full CAN setup used a completely different Navi HU and screen, such as CD70, which is not compatible with Omegas.


Compatible screens were fitted to Astra-G and Vectra-B (and Omegas of course), compatible NCDC201x were fitted to Omegas, early Vectra-C and Corsas (usually only NCDC2011).


All components in the ring (NAV, CD (separate device, even though bolted to bottom of NAV), screen and Telematics (if used)) need to be in depaired mode.

I've seen that piece of shit o p c o m pair these up successfully, I've also seen it screw them up. I'd entrust to a tech2.

The screen and the unit ncdc must be from the same set?
