Hi all,<p>I went down to my local ICE dealers yesterday who have sorted me out so far in every car owned.<p>I am getting a quote for a change of system on Monday but he had a few queries he was not sure in having not dealt with the S60 before.<p>I have a 2005 S60 with a HU850?<p><br>I will be getting the Pioneer HD- something or other which is a sat nav LCD screen with DVD, MP3, Ipod, SatNav and is touch screen. Its a double DIN which they have an adaptor for.<br>I may lose the cup holder although they will try and mould one for me that does work in the DIN adaptor.<p>The questions are:-<p>Are there steering wheel stalk adaptors for the controls?<p>He also asked if Volvo would need to "de-register" the existing radio. He had worked on a previous Volvo where when taking the unit out, the engine would not start.<p>Does anyone know where the cross-overs for the 5 speakers are? He said if they were within the amp, they would have an issue in re-wiring but it can be done, however, if they were simply cross overs near the speakers, then it would be a lot simpler.<p>Lastly, are there any other issues?<p>I know on mp3car.com there is a few people who have modified their volvo s60s themselves with screens etc so I may post there but ideally, I would prefer first hand from here.<p>Thanks<p>

Re: Changing HU on a S60 (Akash)

Check out previous thread on aftermarket installs. HolderAD appears to have done what you want to do. He also provides the resources for the parts you will need.<p>Cheers <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Oz

found it... thanks!<br>he says for one of them that he got the software to delink the unit with the engine but it wasnt needed... so why bother? <p>I notied the cupholder remained in his but theres a line going down so I'm guessing its a new mould he made himself<p>Also steering wheel works too but i suspect Kenwood have a stalk adaptor although Pioneer and Alpine dont<p>I'll forward his setup to the ICE dealers<p>Thanks
