    MP3 CD players which work with OEM screen

    Anyone know of any MP3 cd players or ipod compatibles which work with the OEM screen in the astra. was looking at an alpine one but a little too pricey start at £250 the i will need 2 additional cables for stalks and OEM screen each £30 so £310 << extorsionate.

    need to work with the OEM screen, if its there an doesn't work it will really annoy me, sort of like an OCD thingy

    Incase you didn't know the screen will still show time/ date info just none of the radio data which I don't miss at all as it's only a few inches away

    Not really a big thing i suppose, like i said a sort of OCD thing lol. If it's shown track info and stuff before it will annoy me that it no longer does.

    crimbo14 will look into it cheers, didn't realise sony had this sort of feature as i mentioned there's quite a few alpine head units but the prices are ridiculous.
