Alfa 159 head unit replacement
EDIT (19/03/2015): They are compatible, I only needed to enter the code.
I know the 159 and the Brera share some "DNA".
Does anyone know if the Brera's radio head unit is compatible with the 159 (CAN text, steering wheel buttons, and so on)?
I have a 159 with the basic tuner/cd player and I want mp3 functionality because having a pile of CDs is not very practical. I have a couple of proposals for the installation of 2-DIN aftermarket units, including all the required adapters for steering wheel controls for Pioneer and Alpine units at reasonable prices, but in the end I would still be spending several hundreds of euros in multimedia features I really don't need (although the Bluetooth hands free without the headset might be interesting).
I almost went for it, but recently I've found used Brera head units with the mp3 feature reasonably cheap and I'm tempted to try one, just wondering if someone is aware of compatibility issues.
I know there are those devices that simulate a CD changer, but they are either very shady-looking or expensive to the point of I'd rather prefer a proper after market HU.
