Hello all,

I've read many threads on this topic. One thing i'm not so sure that once I take out my stock radio unit (non-NAV). Will there be any "trouble code" ? If there is, how do I make it clear permanently (since there is no more stock radio)?

Beside the Kenwood & Pioneer, has anyone tried the newest Alpine 8" screen?

Thanks for the inputs.

I have 04 CayenneS

Let me add to this thread: my Amp is dead, I have replaced the amp once before and now the one I replaced is dead again!

I read from "completed aftermarket Navi install" by Cayenneturbo - excellent information - however, i believe he reused the factory amp. My case, I just want to use the amp in the Kenwood, therefore, no fiber is going to be used. Will I get a trouble code if I don't use the factory amp?

Thx,

I'm using the Alpine 8" and it is really sweet. I did retain the factory amp and fiber so I can't speak to how things will work otherwise. The only thing i'm still working on is the phone steering wheel controls... kenwood seems to be the only manufacturer that has the full steering wheel hookup for the cayenne. though I haven't given up yet. Again, happy with the alpine, though there are some release 1 issues around system startup that alpine and my installer are working on.

      Some background:
      I just finished installing a Kenwood Head Unit and used the Kit210/ M.O.S.T HUR 997 module. The installation is not for the faint of heart. I have installed many radios and worked on mods to my previous Porsche's. This took some serious investigation and decoding to see what wires need to be attached to wires in the harnesses. To some extent I was fortunate that the previous owner had an after market unit installed, but had remove nearly everything.
       
      Everything works:
      Backup camera
      Navigation ( I located the GPS antenna way back under the plastic cowling between the Battery and Cabin Filter)
      Radio
      Phone (tried to locate the mic in the location of the factory mic, but proved to be too difficult for now. Located to left of the radio bezel by removing the small piece of dash and positioning the clip under that.
      Volume and Chanel rotary dials on the Steering wheel multi use buttons.
       
      Now the problems left over:
      The Phone buttons don't seem to do anything. I need to use the buttons on the radio when placing/receiving calls. This is not major but would like everything to work as well as if a factory head unit was install. Again, it seems that the steering wheel switches are recognized, but not the phone buttons.
       
      Is this maybe something that needs to be programmed in?
       
      Thanks,
