    Kenwood cd player steering/ screen help

    Hi can you's help i have a kenwood w7541u and would like to install it into my astra. Is there a way i can get the steering controls and the screen still to work displaying the BC?

    What would i require to do this?

    If it is not possibe is there a Astra head unit that is MP3 and USB compatible that would still allow both the screen and steering controls to work?

    Any help much appreciated

    cheers

    Adam

    You can get the kenwood control adaptor and cables (PC99-X06 & PC99-KEN-DIS) from halfords will set you back about £32.

    You will be able to use the stereo contorls on the wheel and the display will work. It wont show you the radio station your listening to (this will be shown on the stereo unit itself) but it will show you the time and the temp outside on the MFD, when the stereo is off it will show you the date on the MFD.

    You can get the parts from www.justkenwood.co.uk and it may be a tiny bit cheaper
    Be an optimist - at least until they start moving animals in pairs to Cape Canaveral.

    Your trip computer will still work but you won't be able to adjust your clock at all.

    For this reason i'd recomend the connects2 CTSVX002 and kenwood patch lead

    Thanks very much for the help.

    Just so i can consider all my options is there a usb/mp3 compatible standard Astra head unit?

    even an ipod compatible one?
