    Anybody got a reccomendation for a double DIN radio /DVD/GPS for a Ducato. Been looking at the chinese ones on ebay or may spend the extra on a known brand. I definately need at least one reversing camera input and preferably two Camera inputs.

    Any advice welcomed

    We have a pioneer avic which was standard fit in our Hymer, if I| were to change it, I would up date to the latest avic 960 bt-c which is designed for motorhomes. An excellent all round package.

    you get so much more for your money with the chinese ones and they get free map updates for life. plus you can add all the poi files without any fuss

    I'm going through the same scenario at the moment. I can't find any of the Chinese units that had DAB radio so I will properly go with the Pioneer avic 960 bt-c with the Alpine TV module.

    Thats a good idea but you would need a good 3G signal and a good data allowance. :)

    I have a Blaupunkt New York which meets your requirements and allows you to input Motorhome size with additional output for TV, been impressed with mine so far

    I have a brand new all singing, all dancing Double Din Pioneer radio. I bought it to replace the radio in our RV. I paid £330 for it in Halfords two months ago This is it

    Trouble is, when I took the radio out of the RV I found it was a 1.8Din so the Pioneer would not fit. :mad::mad::mad: Been meaning to put it on eBay. Its new, in its box. Anyone can make me a sensible offer for it ;)

    Yes very very similar, only difference is the price and it doesn't state if it will fit into a Fiat Ducato dash (well it will but do you get the curved fascia plate with it ? ) without the fascia it will look somehow not fitted correctly

    Not the correct one for my van, pics below will explain more. Picture 1.JPG Finished 1 05-08-2014 15-42-01.JPG This is what i was having trouble finding, at the time icartech in Germany were the only company i could find who supplied this type of fascia. (Curved high gloss front panel - the same as the original)

    thats the way it goes though.....plenty of bargains about shortly after you just had to pay top retail

    looking at the german unit, I reckon that they buy wholesale from Hong Kong and at least double their money in profit
