    Hi radio/cd played up today and I would like to have something that I can put a usb stick in, so can anyone suggest a new unit that would work with the steering wheel controls on a 2007 citroen relay and fit in the original hole
    Thanks

    I replaced the radio in my Boxer 3, 2011 with a Pioneer with USB and iPod control.
    I'm assuming that the Citroen is a standard Din fit the same as the Boxer.
    To get control via the steering wheel you also need to fit a special adapter kit, for your vehicle.
    Halfords or any In Car Audio shop should be able to advise you.

    I took the radio out and refitted the original, when I sold the MH. I now have it in the Caravan.

    I upgraded to a new Sony DAB/cd/FM/AM with USB / iPod connection,
    It also has a remote to use anywhere in the MH, plus a aux in to run the TV through the radio speakers, great improvement on the radio it replaced,
    Not sure about the steering wheel control but most of the better quality radio manufacturers have adapters to fit,

    If you have a local aldi I can't recommend their Tevion stereo enough

    £45 brilliant sound remote control bluetooth hands free phone ...takes usb stick and sd cards as well as cd

    I've fitted one in nearly every van I've owned over last 6 years

    Hi I also recently fitted a Aldi one but it has no CD now -I don't need or do much tech stuff but I have always had cd players with a remote which I find easy to use and as handy as my car stereo unit that has controls on the wheel -must admit the Aldi one is very good value and because it's fitted in the van with decent speakers it sounds good -as a few who were at Rogers meet last mth can testify to :D
