Double Din/Sat Nav


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

We've just bought a 2010 Rav4, 2.2 XT-R. I want to replace the standard single din head unit with an after market double din sat nav/stereo. Can anyone recommend a decent unit? I've seen a Clarion NX712 but unsure as to wether to go for it. Would I need a wiring harness? Also, would I need to change the standard aerial in order to get DAB?

Thanks in advance.

Yes you'd need either to replace existing aerial or use the windscreen DAB aerial which normally supplied with stereos with DAB option. Windscreen aerials normally give a little weaker signal reception although it depends on the area you live. You can also buy additional external DAB aerial with magnet foot (only £10 in Halfords), they give good reception and save you a hassle replacing existing aerial and feeding cables. I added external DAB unit to my existing stereo and chose to replace existing aerial with combined shark fun aerial with three built-in aerials (Radio, DAB and GPS) like this one:

Sorry I can recommend any stereos, good luck with your upgrade.

I had an older version of this great units. Has everything appradio mode so it can mirror your phone, also bluetooth and dab as well. You will need a plug and play harness for your car all on the same website. Aerial wise the internal stick on ones are not really that great. A compromise would be an external glass mount type. Fairly good not too many drop outs and no drilling holes in your roof to fit!

Would you use a smartphone? Apple CarPlay etc.

I heard great stories about the Pioneer SPH-DA230DAB.
