    Would this head unit work with my Astra H?

    Hi Guys, im new to these forums so please forgive me if this has been posted a million times.

    Im looking to replace the head unit in my Astra.
    iPhone compatability/connection and bluetooth handsfree phone is pretty important to me. Ive looked about and seen this:

    http://www.dvbcaraudio.co.uk/kwavx82...er-p-5896.html

    JVC KW-AVX820 Bluetooth(R)/DVD/CD/USB Receiver

    Does anyone know if this would be ok and what I would need to connect it?

    I obviously would like the steering controls and trip computer to work with this unit. Is this possible?

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome mate

    That headunit will fit. You'll just need a facia plate to match your dash, steering wheel control adaptor plus patch lead and a aerial adaptor

    All these parts can be got from connects 2

    Will definitely work mate. I had a JVC KW-AVX810 in mine, was a great headunit The 820 was the replacement with built-in Bluetooth

    A guy I work with has the 820 in his Golf and it works fine with the iPhone 3G over Bluetooth as well, so all should be good
