Well my hu is finaly on its end keeps wanting to not play cd's and the screen does the all famous scrambling words and buttons dont work half the time. I was looking for some ideas from those who have installed aftermarket head units in teher R's looking for pics, model , and functions you loose by installing.
Thanks guys

Re: (97GLTbrick)

With your 2004

Your going to need a few adaptors

You'll lose your center channel unless you do some creative wiring with the amplifier that is the new headunit.

The Volvo Factory amp will need an adaptor to power all the door/rear speakers. Center channel will be dead.

You will need adaptors to use your factory steeering wheel control.

Parzan audio carries them, they are made by Dietz.
