Time for an upgrade - Head Unit with Google
I do plan to do a few upgrades to my Civic 64 Reg Diesel with the 'premium stereo' with awful satnav , such as replacing the door speakers and some soundproofing (its the only major downside of this car for me) - there are some great guides here to help with this....
But this is about replacing the aged and not very hi-tech 2 Din existing head unit, the SatNav is painful and not up to date
Just been travelling around Ireland for a week using my Pixel phone as a Satnav and the superb Google maps, it was great (but small screen!) but a real eye opener.... Made me realise that I really need to upgrade the head unit in my beloved Civic to the same functions
Any hints on what head unit to fit? and ideally where to get it fitted in the Midlands?
I have looked at both cheap imported head units and wiring kits and also some pretty expensive Pioneer/Kenwood/Sony etc. head units and I think I want to head upmarket as long as it all works! ie. the steering controls etc.
I have come to the conclusion that I may well need someone to fit it for me, as I have never even taken a door cover off!
Any advice more than welcome and thanks in advance
