Re: Replacement head unit for US spec C6


I've fitted the Sony head unit. Not difficult at all. Tip would be to solder the PAC kit and the connections before fitting in the car. Check it all works before the rebuilding of the console. I took loads of photos of the process and put them on the Corvette Scotland Facebook page.

Thanks for the tip about soldering . I have applied for the Facebook group so I can look at the photos.

Just search for PAC and you will find the post. Any issues let me know. Smile

Re: Replacement head unit for US spec C6


I installed my new stereo head unit last week and on the whole I am very pleased with it.

A couple of snags only, firstly that I've had to order an adaptor to convert the GM only small aerial connection to a regular sized Din (Halfords don't stock these). Secondly that the PAC instructions specifically tell you to cut off the RCA plugs if you don't have a Bose amp, so, I got chopping, only to find the instructions are wrong and I shouldn't have cut them. As a result I am getting a loud hiss and far too much amplification, nothing I can't sort out though.

I am very pleased with the appearance and function of the unit though, it's like operating my Android phone. Connect to wifi and the Android store and it had duplicated my apps, so I can now view my Gopro, Dashcommand, Harry's Lap Timer and more. The Bluetooth handsfree works well too, all for the sum of 155 from ebay. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Android-8-1-Double-2-DIN-GPS-Navi...

The PAC unit was 55, although Amazon is showing these as more expensive now https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00HFFG7EQ/ref=oh_aui_de...

Very nice. Thumbs up

My Euro spec C6 CD player doesn't work and the radio isn't great, so might look into this.

Cheers! Clap

Thanks, I can't view it just yet - request to join is 'pending'.

Ironically, I lived in Scotland (although Vettless at the time) until a few months ago.
Looking forward to taking it to the Highlands as some point.
Cool

Cheers.

That would be great, I was living just about Invergordon.
Any owners up around those parts? Scratchchin

Having re-read that, I'd not come across 'Dashcommand'.
How does that App work and interact with the car?

Also, probably not, but I have all my music on a 160gb iPod Classic, so is there an option for an external audio in?
