I had a crappy Philips CED320 in my previous one and managed to salvage it but the phase 3 unit which is similar to my 156 facelift unit seems to be fine, I just need to upgrade the sound making stuff so I'm planning speakers, sub, amps and capacitor. I have everything except the speakers. If I can find a decent unit then I'd be swayed too, the problem is 10 years ago ICE looked much better than what's offerd today so I'm not sure what to take. I can't find electric flip-front units anywhere, or even units that would look as good as a 10 year old VDO Dayton unit.
I must say the previous unit had USB connectivity and I have all of my 100's of CD's on micro USB cards and it was much more convenient to carry them around than to carry CD's in CD cases. What I'd look for in a head unit would be:
2. USB capability
3. IPOD or other connectivity (my phone could play through my previous head unit too)
4. WMV, MP3, CDA etc.
5. Good CD playback
6. sufficient RCA's (front, rear, sub) etc.
7. ISO connectors
Trying to find a good looking unit that fits the bill is quite hard!
Am I the only one to have found the speakers in a GTV to be wired out-of-phase from the factory?
On both GTV's I've owned thus far, this was the case!
