Hi,
I'm picking up a 52 plate 307 this week which has a standard OE tape deck fitted and no CD player. The first thing I want to  do is swap this headunit with a new CD player with MP3 inputs. Will the OE volumn / skip / function controls which are mounted on the steering wheel stalk still work if I change the headunit?

In case I need to be stereo specific then I'll prob just get something like this:

http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_235309_langId_-1_CarSelectorCatalogId__CarSelectorGroupId__varient__categoryId_79867_crumb_31265-31371_parentcategoryrn_79867#

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Very Happy

Cheers for the response. Can anyone tell me if the Sony CDX-GT414U CD Player will be compatable with Peugeot 307 stalk mounted stereo controls?

like has been said before, you'll need to use an adaptor.

out of the box, NO aftermarket units will be compatible with the stalk of any car!

Cheers, figured that from the website you guided me to. Unfortunately I hit post on my response just as you responded hence the reason it looked like I hadnt listened!

I tried to find  the correct adaptor from the Autoleads site but it was a bit confusing - that said it has reasurred me that it is, as the very least, possible - with an adaptor of course.

I'll ask in Halfords when I buy the stereo and see if they can guide me on the specifics.

Thanks for your help

the site itself that cellexe pointed you to is for reference, you can see if they do such a lead...from the quick look i had, you can get an adaptor for most headunits, sony and jvc for sure.  find a car electronics (as in in-car entertainment) shop near you and go there, i'd avoid halfords if i were you

Halfords aren't that bad for this kind of advice, they also sell autoleads adaptors so should know the score.

the only thing is you'll be limited to the functions available thru the adaptor. some will do more than others, its not a headunit thing, more a 'car' thing (ie you might get more functions from a ford stalk than you would a renault stalk).

There are plenty of adaptors available for the 307 and for most top brand headunits. From what i've noticed they do the 'basics' but not much more (track > & <, volume up & down, SRC or mode)

Thanks for the advice guys. I'll check out my local store and also Halfords and go from there. All I really want is for the track, volumn and source buttons to work otherwise I have a completely pointless piece of plastic jutting out from my steering column!!

Cheers all  Very Happy

Hi All,

I've just come back from a trip to Halfords where I established that I want a head unit with built in ipod connectivity so that all the menu layers can be accessed on the stereo display.

I'm considering getting a Sony CDX-GT44IP headunit which Halfords say when combined with 50 Autolead (PC99-X44 stalk adaptor) and a 5 adaptor patch cable will make everything work!

My only concern is that the guy in Halfords also said that the new model of this range (The Sony CDX-GT50UI head unit) is NOT compatible with my 52 plate 307. How come the newer model is not compatible but the older model is??

Can anyone please confirm that the Sony CDX-GT44IP head unit will work before I shell out my hard earned... ??

Cheers,
W
