I have an 03 plate Corsa if that makes any difference but could someone kindly show me what I need for a JVC HU to be able to use steering controls.

I tried to find a tutorial but could only see one for an Irmy steering wheel.

I'm not to sure on the model of the JVC.

I also have this HU and wondered if this would work dont think so.

Thanks

Yeah. There will be a generic lead to convert the vauxhall wiring to an autoleads system. The second bit converts the autoleads wiring to the stereos wiring

There is a cable like in the picture below sticking out of the back of my JVC headunit which is for use with steering controls. Well according to the manual thats what its for anyway lol.

I dont want to be spending Hundreds and Hundreds.

Something maybe with a screen, must be able to control subwoofer and all the faing and balance not just genral balancing and fading if that makes sense.

Also like it to have bluetooth for on the phone using it via speakers and must have the connector at the back to use steering wheelcotrols

Yeah I know I've hd like 3 or 4 units in the past and never really been satisfied.
I wish i could spend £500 and get what I wanted.

Maybe I'll go with Alpine or Pioneer :cool:

Yeah I know I dont think I could justify spending 200 plus for a HU even tho it would be banging.
That 200 quid could be used for my holiday in July or even Window Tints and a nice SRI Spoiler....
Descions..... cheers tho buddie
