    Has anyone bought this ebay double din headunit?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/CAR-DVD-BLUETO...item2a038142c0

    Wanting to do a double din conversion to my car, and also put a satnav in the top screen or something.

    Seen this headunit at a nice cheap price, and its got the av input, bluetooth, aux input and Freeview tuner which i all want.

    Just wondering if anyone else has bought this before and if so i take it you never have to use the motorised function?

    pictures would be awesome if so.

    also looking at this option mate(not the unit) but double din.... i would think it would give you the option

    but my mate has one in his starlet and it always sits like that when on....... bt on the pick it may just be showing that it slides to put the disc in? im not sure


    good luck with this

    yeah but the prices are ridiculous. My kenwood head unit never works right, the ipod menus have disappeared and the bluetooth has stopped working as well. JUST outside of warranty.

    Might just keep it though and put a 7" LCD in the satnav space, then connect a garmin gvn 53 to it and a freeview tuner. Maybe front and rear cameras.

    It's cheap for a reason - they're crap.
    Ask any decent ICE shop about these cheap chinese imports, they'll all tell you the same thing. They either don't work very well, go faulty during/shortly after installation, don't perform as they claim.
    You pay more for the brand name units for a good reason, they work properly & reliably. Have you had you Kenwood looked at by a dealer?

    yeah halfords agreed it was faulty but the warranty was just out.

    The most reliable headunit ive had was a cheap import lol, but it didnt have anywhere near that many functions.
