I've recently bought a Civic and I'm looking to fit a double din head unit.
My requirements are:
*Connect my Android phone and mirror the screen for sat nav
*Play tracks from a USB flashdrive
I'd also prefer a decent resolution capacitive touchscreen screen, but most seem to be resistive. I was in Halfords and the screen on the Pioneer app radio 4 (DA120) looked very nice and was responsive, whereas the screen on the Kenwood 4025DAB looked cheap and nasty. Unfortunately, the app radio 4 doesn't have DAB and from what I can tell, is aimed at Apple rather than android anyway.
The head unit which is interesting me most at the moment is the newly released Kenwood DDX-5015DAB
. I'm interested in unit because it has DAB and Android mirroring which works using miracast and an optional Dongle.
Because the unit is so new I can't find any reviews or videos and nowhere seems to have any to demo. The Kenwood unit I viewed in Halfords had a terrible screen so I would prefer to try before I buy rather than buy it and be disappointed.
Can anybody recommended a double din upto £400? I'd consider an Android unit, but non seem to have DAB.
Also, Halfords quoted me £29.99 for fitting a double din but wanted an additional £230 for accessories like the fascia, steering wheel control stuff etc. They said I maybe able to source these myself to save money. Can somebody confirm this kit (Inc patch lead) is all I need to fit a double din into my Civic? My car is 2008 type S.
