Hi All, I have a Pioneer SPH-230DAB and I am about to install it in my Polo 1.4 Bluemotion 9n3 (this car is my first one - I have absolutely no experience with cars whatsoever but want to give it a good go!) I’ve got a bunch of questions before I install it on Wednesday. Some more silly others: 1. Before I start, is it alright to just unhook the positive (or negative?) terminal of the battery, or is it important to unhook both? 2. How do I install the DAB aerial and get the wires behind the plastic trim? (It’s the sort you stick on the windscreen) 3. I’ve bought this: VW CAN-Bus Multimedia Interface for the Integration of Car Radios and Sat Navs for VW Golf - Passat - Touran - Jetta - Polo - Tiguan - Touareg - Sharan - Scirocco - T5 - Transporter https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01N7W5TEE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_8BC0DbS3DS2SF . I’m assuming I unhook the rcd200, and attach the can bus and wires to the existing the wires, then plug it into the head unit. Are any other cables required? I’m assuming no fascia or anything like that is required. 4. There’s a USB extender that comes out the back of the head unit which needs to be fed through something so you can plug your phone into it - does anyone have any idea where from? Absolutely any wisdom at all would be massively appreciated - sorry for the wall of text. Determined to make my first attempt at anything car related not end disaster! Thanks all!
Hi All, My first topic post on the forum - hope you’re all good! I’m about to buy myself a Pioneer SPH-230dab to replace the glamorous RCD200 currently installed. To hook it up properly, I was going to splash out a fine pair of radio removal keys and this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01N7W5TEE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_SORTDbE0ZT2CH My understanding is that this replaces the need to mess around with any sort of converters / piggy backing off of any fuses when it comes to getting it wired. Does that sound about right? Next related question, I found this: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/252942255750 This seems to think it’ll convert my current FM aerial into a DAB aerial - does that sound legit? Does anyone have any experience with one? I’m a complete novice with all this stuff. Any wisdom about installing (I won’t need a fascia place, right?!) is gratefully received! Cheers, Paul
Hello, I have recently purchased some Pioneer TS-G1731i Speakers (Ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-Polo-2010-Pioneer-6-5-17cm-Dual-Cone-Coaxial-Speakers-460W-Door-Speakers-/331810660315?hash=item4d4174dfdb) to install in the front of my MK9 Polo. The speakers arrived today with the mounting bracket, 8 screws, 8 screw brackets and of course the 2 speakers with grills. However, I am unsure how to mount them (as I am no audio expert). Could anybody please advise me how I mount the speakers using 4 screws each. Photos of the bracket and speaker below; Thank you
