Hi All<p>Alpine and others have a double DIN 6.5" touch screen, unit that I have seen treads on installs in the 60R. Has anyone done the same in an 05 XC70?<p>Crutchfield's says the new Alpine touch screen unit, that integrates radio, hd radio, ipod, nav, and cell phone, will not fit.<p>TIA<br>Oz <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Has installed a touch screen radio/dvd/nav unit in an 05 XC70? (Ozzie)

I haven't done it, but it would be the same process, and yes it would fit. The only concern of it not fitting would be if it were too deep, but if you take out your radio and look, its actually a really deep pocket, so I wouldn't worry at all. It doesnt surprise me that Crutchfield says that it wont fit, but if you find the right parts it will. Look at the install on this site, it has loads of information for you. Its just a bit of a process getting everything to work with the CAN bus, ie, you have to have the dealer delete the radio in the computer, then get the correct parts to get the steering wheel controls to work, etc.
