PostPosted: Tue May 07, 2019 10:45 am    Post subject: PCM1 to Android Double DIN Reply with quote

Decided to swap out my PCM1 unit for a modern android unit with up to date nav, Bluetooth, etc...
So, unit is on order an expected by the weekend, so though I'd pop out the PCM to see what's what in terms of connections etc. hoping it would be 'plug&play'.... Sadly it doesn't appear to be so.
So I'm after some advice on connectors/ISO adapters.
The current unit has three connectors at the top (Yellow, green, blue), which I believe are output to the amp, cd changer, phone system. Oddly the loom has an additional green and blue connector that aren't being used...
There is then a black connector that would appear to be power.
There are then two large, connections (blue and black) that I assume are to do with the phone, on-board computer, nav cd...?
I've found a couple of ISO adapters but am not sure which (if either) is the right one for this application.
Understand that I will lose the phone and cd changer, so not worried about that element.

Has anyone done a similar swap and can advise on what I need? And will I also lose the mpg etc. that is shown on the dash?
If relevant, car is 2000 C4 (non-MOST).
Thanks in advance.

Hi Tim

this could not be more timely for me.

A few years ago i ripped my Porsche double din unit and installed an iPad but, right now, i'm just not happy with it (i'm a big Android fan and couldn't find the right pad at the time to fit the space)

So I, too, am thinking of doing the swap.

Can i ask a favour and ask you to do a full write up and post as many piccies as you possibly can...??

Can i also ask which Android unit you've chosen and why and are you intending to link this up to a separate amp/player or is it a complete stand alone/fully integrated unit....

Looking forward to following this thread. Pop Corn Pop Corn Pop Corn

I hope to be doing the same soon. This thread may have the answer. It's not confirmed so could also PM the guy who asked to see if he got it sorted.
