Got this deal a few weeks ago. Had done a bit of research regarding my car and what was needed. Looked a good deal as the electrics needed some tinkering and a power source for the aerial. Dropped it off and done within an hour. Stereo is excellent sounding - but note there is no cd player. I wanted this as burning cds was a waste of money if you have a 32gb stick knocking round.

Anyway come saturday I want to listen to 5 live on MW/LW. Not a signal at all on any MW/LW. Took it back and they looked at the stereo and swapped it out with another unit. Still nothing. Told me the aerial was bust so swapped that out too. Guess what? Still nothing. I asked about the power source for the aerial. Was told their computer didn't show one as needed for the car. So - and this is priceless they said if I have a smart phone to download an app called TuneIn Radio and connect via an audio cable. This will cure the missing MW/LW issue. Seriously this was the help they gave me.

Anyway I argued the point and showed them on my phone the web page saying I needed a power source for the aerial. The manager was called and he agreed to try it. Guess what? It worked.

So have a bit of research before you take it to these clowns for fitting.

That aside the sound from this is excellent.

Cant get that pioneer link to work

Siddas, do they link it to existing steering wheel controls as part of this bundle?

Pioneer link still isn't working...

How do I know whether this will fit VW Golf mark V?

They should do as the stereo is compatible with most steering wheel controls.

Link works fine for me. Make sure to add the bundled offer to your basket.

What's the different between the Sony vs Pioneer? Why the later one is £50 more expensive?

Sorry couldn't tell you as I don't have steering wheel control. But does say all extras and fitting included so I would guess they would sort that.
