Stereo head unit upgrade for wj grand
Hi all
I'm looking at upgrading my head unit with a dvd satnav combo, replace factory speakers and amp in my wj grand.
I've been looking at head units on eBay that fit with out doing any mods to the dash fasia. But then I've seen some of the negative feedback some buyers have left for these head units that are shipped out of china, and now I'm having seconds thoughts about getting one.
So now I'm asking has anyone fitted an aftermarket double din dvd satnav head unit into a wj wg grand ( alpine kenwood etc).
How hard is the install. Can I do it myself or should I get a pro to install?
Im after one that is compatible with the steering wheel controls. I know with some brands you have to buy a seperate control unit to connect to steering wheels controls.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Regards jay

Im sure you know this by now but you have a 1 1/2 DIN radio. I have not seen a SAT radio in 1 1/2 din. I tried one on mine that the screen comes out and folds up but it looked really strange so I pulled it out and replaced it with a 1 DIN radio and adapter I bought on Amazon. Good luck
