Fiat grande punto sat nav GPS multimedia headunit

Hey guys, just wanted to show you one of my new installs to my grande punto and maybe it could give you some ideas too.
I decided to get rid of the crappy fiat headunit and go for a nice upgraded one however I wanted the original look, so I opted for a headunit that did exactly that
A fiat grande punto designed 6" screen
It has sat nav, equaliser, TV, AV1, AV2 (playstation if you wish)
It has aux, Bluetooth with phonebook function, steering wheel controls set up out of the box, and best of all, a reverse camera.
It looks really good and I've decided to put it on here because I see so many really nicely modified puntos but nothing on the interior.
Got some pictures tooClick image for larger version

I ended up getting it for 180 and fitted it all myself, it's literally plug and play unless your previous owner messed up the wiring, and it's definitely worth it in comparison to the awkward fitting other head units, any questions don't be afraid to ask.
Thanks MusicInMe, nkirk, Into, Ryan13, The Waugh and 1 others thanked for this post

Re: Fiat grande punto sat nav GPS multimedia headunit

That looks bloody marvellous.

If you can, can you post the URL for the unit on AliExpress, or at least the Unit Model ID so I can hit google

And finally, how much hassle fitting the reversing camera?

Re: Fiat grande punto sat nav GPS multimedia headunit

I can't post the link as I have less than 5 posts, so go to Ali express and type in fiat punto, and you'll see it there, the seller name is Sam Mr. And tell him that you were introduced by Daniel, you should be able to get a good deal from there

Re: Fiat grande punto sat nav GPS multimedia headunit

Reverse camera was literally wiring the video wire under the Trims and to the boot, removed some plastic thing where the reverse wire and tapped into it with the red and black power wires from the reverse camera and all done, it has LEDS which come on at night when I put into reverse mode

Re: Fiat grande punto sat nav GPS multimedia headunit

Yeah you can connect your sub, it comes with a set of plug in cables for aux, subwoofer, external mic, reverse camera, AV, TV

The additional wire coming out is for the TV antenna

Re: Fiat grande punto sat nav GPS multimedia headunit

How is the touch screen response? is it very responsive or 'lags' a little?
Thanks for posting this!
