    To be honest either but i wish to keep the park assist..

    I was looking at one of those android based systems on ebay but i dont think the park assist works through it...

    I would like dab really not much bothered about sat nav.

    Cheers agn

    Do you have an iPhone ? If so look into the Alpine ILX-700 although it has no DAB

    The Alpine is the only unit I know with Parking Sensor integration. I'm sure there are many and someone else can help you.

    Check out the SPH-DA120 if you can make do without sensor integration. It's fully compatible with android and a great unit

    Contact COMAND UK they will look into something for you, email sales@comand.co.uk

    Cheers

    Your best bet for retaining all the existing integration and functions is to go to Comand NTg4. This will give you the bigger screen, navigation, better amp etc. It will also fully integrate with the instrument cluster and steering wheel controls. There isnt musch else around for the "04. I did see the other day a touch screen system that replaced the factory screen but this leaves the base unit in the car doing nothing. Very tacky and naff.
