PostPosted: Tue Apr 18, 2017 4:52 pm    Post subject: The end of my PCM2 - upgrading Reply with quote

Enough is enough! Having replaced the drive in my PCM2 due to it not reading the Nav discs, or any discs properly. I have now had multiple error messages and it keeps forgetting the coding for the telephone model, do can't use my Dension anymore.

I pulled the trigger and ordered the following:
Replacement headunit, with apple CarPlay - Kenwood DMX-7017DABS
Adaptor to allow me to keep the stock amplifier and speaker connections
Dash surrond to allow flush fitting of the head unit.

I am going to install it all this weekend so will keep you posted. I did a lot of research so if it goes well will be happy to share... Wish me luck!

Good luck! Thumb
(Though I would have replaced the amp and speakers too) Mr. Green

Hi Stefant,
Is it an early car or a later MOST car?

Go for it. I fitted this courtesy of a lovely fellow member who was a joy to trade with (cheers Ben Thumb ).

Tips? Get the right connector if MOST. Mine wasn't cheap but importantly everything works. If fitting yourself make sure the settings are left at neutral on your PCM before removal (Volume to mid, faded and balance to mid etc).

And make sure you've set all your car functions that the PCM controls as you like them before removal (lights, wipers, door locking etc).

Like many I've gone down the Brodit route for my phone holder (damn you Spiderlane Damn ).

And that's that. Great upgrade on functionality thumbsup

Really looking forward o hearing how you get on and how easy it is as a diy change out.

Could you post some pics of the MOST adaptor when fitting.

This is on my list of things to do n the future.

This is the adaptor I went for. Recommended by the place I bought the rest of my kit from, and cheaper than the post above.

http://www.connects2.co.uk/Product/ProductItem/CT51-PO04

Bought everything from car Audio direct who where very good to deal with

I will post some pics as I go along.

Thanks for the info. The adaptor is for a PCM2 in a 2003 996 with Bose.

Cheers.

Good luck with the install. The PCM 2 really is pretty bad compared to modern kit.

Does the use of a MOST Adapter impact the dashboard computer display of mpg, tank range, boost pressure, temp etc? I would expect it to impact the satnav part of course, but what about the rest of the functions?

Looks very nice. How do you find the sound quality with the existing speakers? Is it any better via the new head unit?
