Yes, you will be able to steer the car by turning the wheel either clockwise or anticlockwise depending on which way you want to steer!!  ;D

Don't know if this will help you at all, but you can obtain adapters that fit between the head unit and the original loom of the car, enabling the steering wheel controls once more.  Personally, I have not bothered as I never used them.  I would like to get a display driver, but that is another story!

Halfords do the adapters at £29.99 and you need a patch lead that fits between this and the head unit.  The other end plugs into the car's loom.  The patch leads were around £5 if I recall.

I have just looked at the audio manual of my Omega which has the steering wheel controls and it says the stereos that have the steering wheel control features are the CAR400, CAR600 and CAR 800 with the 600 and 800 being able to contol a multiplay CD. Hope this helps LSG

The Connects2 drivers do both but cost more money.

I wouldn't bother.  

Apart from the fact that you won't really miss them, there's precious little space behind the radio for adaptors.

I know, but where do you get them?  You cannot buy directly from their site and e-bay searching only brings up F**D ones!

Of course, there is still the space issue behind the head unit to consider, but I would like to have a display if only to get rid of the date!

Connects 2 are available from Halfords :( or from a few internet resellers - seen one at stupid price.

Best thing is set up a search on Ebay

True.  Some aftermarket H/Us can spoil the understated look of the interior.

Can the colour displays be fitted to all omegas provided they have the right audio equipment?

It would require the correct loom as well as the correct head unit. There are two multiplugs going into the back of the color display, not one.

Easy to check though by removing the instrument cluster to check for said spare connector. The 2013 and 2015 have a different setup though, BC functions are not controlled by buttons on the wiper stalk for example.

I've taken stacks of pictures, external, internal and all display/config combinations etc., all for my site at OmegaProject.co.uk

However, due to my current host being utter crap, i have hung off progressing the site until i migrate to a new provider, hopefully sometime this week or next.

I'll keep you posted when it's available.  ::)
