    Any advice on which is the best infotainment screen to buy to replace in a 2014 2ltr cdti estate vx line? I thought it had sat nav, but it doesn't!

    Whats in your car buddy.

    It's either the R400 which is the small screen with dab and radio only
    Or the larger screen and that will be the R700 as that doesn't have sat nav.

    Can you take a picture of it.

      Does the hmi 2.0 have nav built in?

        It'll depend on the unit.
        the R700 no
        The R900 yes.

        The 700 and 900 are identical but 700 doesn't have the nav.

        And with it being a VX line, I'm willing to bet my months income it'll be the R400 which is the small screen.....

        R400

            The R400 doesn't have the HMI
            THe R900 does.

            I'm custom fitting the R900 into mine.
            I stripped the complete loom from one we are breaking and it's now with the Guru plasma being adapted for my car, so mines will be wearing the big screen with satnav and the centre console touchpad.

            And I'm finished with the modding on my car.

                Aye.
                Great cheap units and have lots of functions, but we went and got that estate and it has every toy imaginable....so after getting some advice from Dean as to what was needed for the conversion, I stripped the dash out and removed the full dash loom.....and that was no mean feat I can tell you.....so tje loom, HMI and Silverbox is with Dean right now being adapted for my car.

                That'll be fitted and my new wheels on....car complete...no more mods.

                    Seriously....I've nowt else to do.....unless vxr bumpers and front full leather seats miraculously appear.

                    It's the R900 and the new wheels.....there sitting at the side waiting to go on. Newly refurbished and new tyres all round.

                        Never say never this won't be the last mod, as I previously said I keep stumbling across mods I wanna do, I must stop looking

                          Nope.....once this is fitted and working, that's the last mod I'm doing.
                          I think I've done all I can do with it.

                            Until some leather VXR seats turn up then they'll need motorising then some bumpers will turn up.....

                              It's a forever car Drew.
                              it's going nowhere.
                              I will buy a new car, dunno when, but when I do, the insignia is being put into the back of garage and kept.

                              Too much has been done to it, just the same as my vectra had and i regret getting rid of it, even if it was to junior.
