Fixed stereo problem - got a new one ...

I finally bit the bullet and went to the local stereo shop and picked up a Pioneer FH-S701BS, double DIN, CD-receiver. It wasn't too bad (IMO) at $550.00 w/tax-install, steering wheel button hookup etc & dash plate.

It's taking a bit of getting used to - I tried downloading the manual from Pioneer, but it might as well been in Chinese for all the sense I could make out of it.

I'm going to have to go back to the shop to see if there is a way to make the display brighter, because it's hard to see when it's sunny out, but other than that-I'm liking it.

The new stereo has Bluetooth and can play music from your phone over the Bluetooth & the CD player is clear as a bell

I had to change the heater/ac controls because that whole panel has to be changed to allow the new radio to fit properly, instead of dials, they are push button and I didn't lose any of the functions - even have the heated seat buttons now (but not the heated seats).

I will post pics of the new & old set up when I get home from work.

This is the whole face of the radio and the AC/Heater controls on the bottom of the new dash panel. I cut off the AC/Heater display in this pic, so I took a second one.



Here is the display for the AC/Heater which is at the top of the new dash panel, above the radio.
