Cables You May Need:

  1. If your car's radio antenna port is the same as the picture and it is inside the console, you will need to order a radio antenna extension cable  (XTRONS ISOFZ) to finish the installation. If your car's radio antenna port is the same as the picture and it is in the boot, you will need to order two extension cables (XTRONS ISOFZ and FZMF) to finish the installation. 
  2. 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 to order an extra 6m extension cable to aid the installation. (XTRONS EXL007 is compatible.)
  3. If you want to install this unit in your Rover 75 (1999-2005) or MG ZT (2001-2005), you will need to trim 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 picture, then you don't need this cable.) Caution: Please make sure that all functions operate properly before trimming.
  4. If there is a DSP (Digital Sound Processing) button on your factory radio, or your car has a digital sound system like "Harman Kardon", you will need an extension cable to aid the installation. (XTRONS EXL007 is compatible.)
  5. If your car has a fibre optic amplifier system, you will need a decoder to aid the installation. (XTRONS FOBB05 is compatible.)
  6. If there is a blue 12pin plug in your car, you will need this cable to aid the installation. (XTRONS ICE/ACS/BMWDSP01 is compatible.)
