    Default Double DIN head unit for a Transit mk7 2008 van

    My van currently has the standard radio/CD head unit with a Ipod connected into the CD multichanger socket with a Connects2 adaptor box. The van has remote controls for the radio on the steering column I also have a separate satnav.

    I'd like to fit a reversing camera but don't want a separate screen. The Ipod connection and remotes are a must have. I have an Android phone that could be used as a satnav, I just need to find an app I like, Waze couldn't find Castlebay when I tried it. I'll not be upgrading the speakers nor do I want a full on doof doof sound system.

    I'm idly looking at one of these

    Another possibility is a rear view mirror mounted reversing camera screen, but I've not looked into those. There's probably other options I don't know about too.


    Any suggestions welcome, including 'get a blog' and 'FFS think about what you need/want before you type'.

    Thanks for the replies

    I've remembered the possibility of a dash cam as well.

    The hole in the dash is actually larger than double din, so you'll need an additional facia plate too.

    There's far too much choice
