My Kenwood DAB+ required an extra stick on aerial on the windscreen, it was fitted just above where the tax disk used to go.

Thanks for reply.

I've just been told by the installer, they would fit it in the rear quarter glass. Probably I could live with that, as I won't see it.

I'd be interested to know who you are using and costs. I see you are based in London as am I.
Interested in the Kenwood unit myself. My only concern are the functions I would loose through the PCM menu.

Sure - I am talking with Gary at audiofile in-car, based in Bishops Stortford.

He is coming back to me with a price, as I want the 8019 kenwood, not the newer one.

He has told he will connect to steering wheel controls, but it will have its own Bluetooth mic. I have had enough of PCM for the last ten years, I want google maps, Spotify!

They have good reviews online, and I want as clean an install as possible, with no cut wires.

Just do as I did and program the functions you prefer before your old PCM comes out. About the only one I changed was to have the doors lock when driving off!

Forgot about anti-hijack, I don’t want to lose that.

I have just had a Pioneer SPH DA230 Dab fitted to my Alfa 159. I have all my music on an iphone so it shows track names and album covers. For some reason I particularly like being able to use Waze on a decent sized screen (my iphone is the small SE). Being able to make phone calls by voice and receive texts and whatsapp messages (read out if you like too) is great. Phone is connected via a USB cable.

Got to grips with the controls in a day or so as it is intuitive. DAB radio is also a nice upgrade for me.

Looks good too.

No idea how it would work on a 997 but the info that was on the old system is still available on the dashboard between the dials as it was before but not on the Car Play unit.

Reverse cameras are an optional extra.

Cost me £600 fitted without a reverse camera

Think I have settled on the Kenwood 8019, caraudiesecurity in Hayes have quoted £175 for fitting and £170 for the fitting kit/cables etc. I intend to get the Kenwood myself as it'll be cheaper.
The owner has a 997GT3 so confident they know how to fit to my 997.
Expect to get fitted before a weeks break in Cornwall mid Feb. The travel to Cornwall and touring fro a week should be a good test of the unit.

Excellent read guys - thanks for all the information sharing thumbsup

I too miss the creature comforts of a modern interface on the daily hack....

My car has Nav & CD changer, two things which take up Frunk space!!! Whilst I take this car on European holidays with the wife and kids, every inch counts Floor

The Kenwood 7170 looks like a good bit of kit for under £1k. If it has apple car play then thats a win. I use Waze alot, but its also nice to just have that built in Nav Option for when the phone technology isnt working.

There is also a Pioneer unit which I was looking at, cant recall it atm.

Whilst my car has Bose, ill make sure what ever I get can take the Optical add on.
