Although we have made every effort to ensure this unit will be compatible with the listed vehicles, please check the year, dimensions and shape of the centre console of your vehicle before purchasing.

Cables You May Need:

  1. Please check your car's centre console and see whether there is an air-conditioning cover like the picture shows. If there is, you can remove it to the container and then install this unit in your car perfectly.
  2. Please check if your car's radio antenna port is the same as the picture and it is inside the console, if so you will need to order an adapter cable (XTRONS ISOFZ) to finish the installation. 
  3. If your car's radio antenna port is the same as the picture and it is in the trunk, you need to order two extension cables (XTRONS ISOFZ and FZMF) to finish the installation. 
  4. If your car's original radio has a 4.3" or 7" screen with a 12 pin plug, or you have the navigation drive located in the rear of your car, you will need an extra 6m extension cable to aid the installation. (XTRONS EXL007 is compatible.)
  5. If you want to install this unit in your Rover 75 (1999-2005) or MG ZT (2001-2005) vehicle, you will need to cut the trimming of this unit on both sides and order an extra ISO wiring harness. (XTRONS AK/PSP9046B/ISOCBL02 is compatible. If your radio harness is 17pin like the above picture, you won't need this cable.) Caution: Please make sure that all functions operate properly before trimming.
  6. If there is a DSP (Digital Sound Processing) button in your factory radio, or your car has a digital sound system like "Harman Kardon", you will need to order an extension cable to aid the installation. (XTRONS EXL007 is compatible.)
  7. If your car has a fibre optic amplifier system, you will need a decoder to aid the installation. (XTRONS FOBB05 is compatible.)
  8. If there is a blue 12pin plug in your car central control panel, you will need this cable to aid the installation - XTRONS ICE/ACS/BMWDSP01.
