I have seen these in Aldi for £39.99 if it's £99.99 I wouldn't bother as you can get a better head unit ie Kenwood, Sony, Pioneer etc from Halfords or online for less money.
Here is a link from HUKD a while ago, hotukdeals.com/dea…060

The one I am looking at has a 7" touchscreen, i think the one previously posted was just a standard stereo.

For some reason it will not allow the link or picture to be posted. Its the 67531 Bluetooth Car Stereo With 7 Inch Flip Up Multimedia Display

I assume you would need a stalk adapter, it should say on the instructions if it is compatible. They are now all sold out in my local store
Ive just bought one of these units from aldi today, plugged it in and works fine, done the handbrake thingy, when I set off it goes mental.....screen flips in and out and radio goes on 1.....if on video it cuts out... any way around this ? Going to double check the wiring configuration tomorrow as mines standard iso in a renault megane
Fitted the Xmax present Aldi Maxtek Vision 67531 to a Toyota this morning. Works well, sounds good (better than the Toyota Panasonic standard fitment) and does not need the "handbrake on" cable to be connected at all in order to play videos.

The touch screen is a bit insensitive but if you gently use your fingernail it's OK. The unit sticks out of the dashboard rather a long way but it has to to give room for the screen to flip up.

The only issue I have found is that if you load music files onto an SD card from Windows, the System Volume Information file which Windows always writes seems to trip up the player and it freezes when it tries to play it. However, if you use a USB stick for your music then it plays perfectly. I have got around the problem with the SD card by deleting the SVI file although you need to do this from a Windows command prompt. If you use Android (or probably an Apple device) for loading your music the problem will not arise. This is the kind of issue that a firmware update will probably fix although, at the moment, there are no firmware updates available for the 67531.

The radio, bluetooth, video (it struggles with HD video files though) and music functions all work well and you can play music over bluetooth from your phone as well.

For £100 it's a steal!
