as I may be buying a Compass in the US and ship it over to Switzerland. I need to decide which head unit to get.
My idea is to get the Boston Acoustics Sound System without Navsat and then replace the head unit with a Pioneer AVIC-D1. (The US Navsat is useless in Europe and buying a European model from a dealer will cost me just as much as getting an AVIC-D1, with the added benefit of iPod integration etc. etc.)
From information found on this forum and elsewhere my (hopefully cunning) plan is as follows:
-Get the Boston Acoustics Sound System with the Basic Radio (REF? Can somebody confirm the code?)
-Buy an extra center console bevel as used for the Navsat unit (REC) and swap it out. Haven't found a part number for this yet.
-Get the double-din kit 99-6510 from Metra:
-Add Peripheral Electronics CAN-BUS Interface (CHYAH05):
-Add Peripheral Electronics Steering Wheel Interface (PESWICAN) and Pioneer Adapter (PESWIPS):
I have confirmed with Peripheral Electronics, that their interfaces will work on an '07 Compass.
-Maybe change the antenna to a combined GPS/Radio antenna on the roof.
(Not sure as I haven't seen any clear pictures, but it looks to that the US model has a retractable antenna in the front fender. Haven't seen any of those in ages over here).
Will this fly? Any ideas? Suggestions? Warnings?
Thanks in advance.
