Looking for a little advice. I would like to replace the head unit in my UP 63 plate due to it having terrible radio quality and no bluetooth. From what I know I would need a single din head unit and replace the facia and possibly wire something up to the ignition loom?

The head unit I was thinking of was this one:
Halfords: Pioneer SPH-10BT Smartphone Receiver

As for the facia I am unsure which one I would need, I have found these 2 on ebay, one with a wiring loom and one without:
Ebay Wired
Ebay Unwired

Any ideas which would be best ? I have never actually messed around with cars before. Another thought is how do you even get the facia off in the first place? Any help much appreciated. (y)

Hi Chris

I have the SPH-20DAB

You need the Wired facia

Very easy and you need a blade fuse wired takeoff
So that you can provide a switched live to the new stereo (red) wire

I use the face-lift phone mount (my preference) instead of the built in holder as it gets in the way of heater controls
But works great

Regards
Rick

Hi Chris

You need to check your aerial base before you buy anything as bad reception is usually water damage in base unit or rust on its fittings

Citigo parts best for a good second hand aerial base

Sorry about quote section

I cheated with phone holder baseplate by fitting on top of maps & more baseplate using longer m5 screws
That way easy to revert in future

Very easy to run the wire as you can get your hand in the column hole if you put steering height all the way up
