    My JVC KD-LH811 headunit

    Hi guys I hope you can help me.

    First of all apologies if this is a repost, I dont think it is and whilst I know there are threads which have covered this I have not found anything which answers my questions.

    My questions is this.

    I have just bought a 2004 Zaffy GSI and to be honest I really dont think much of the standard H/U.

    Therefore I want to remove it and replace it if at all possible with my JVC headunit (model number in title). However, If at all possible I dont want to loose either the display or steering wheel controls. If I cant get around it and theres not an adaptor available then I think I will have to stick with the standard one

    Looking at other threads it would appear that you can buy adaptors from Autoleads although I cannot find out if my H/U is compatible having looked at other threads and on the Autoleads website.

    Would anyone be able to help me.

    Cheers

    Well a search on JVC's website say that it's "steering remote control ready" so i'd say you can get the autoleads one, it might be worth a question being asked before you buy though

    Not sure about the display but I doubt you can get that to work

    I have the LHX-501 head unit and I have it working with the steering controls on a MK4 Astra. The display remains with the date and temp. It does not go blank.
