Double Din head unit with built in microphone

Hi,

Can anyone recommend a double din head unit which has a microphone built into it rather than needed a mic on a wire? Want to keep things neat and tidy!

Thanks

Re: Double Din head unit with built in microphone

I have a Pioneer AVH-x2500BT unit in my Stilo, fits perfect, connects straight up with no issues, just had to run a switched live feed to it. It has bluetooth with ability to hook up your phone and a built in microphone. The display is fully customisable so I changed the colours of the controls to match the dash display. Photos here.

Re: Double Din head unit with built in microphone

Seems like many of the newer Pioneer/JVC/Alpine head units all have an external wired microphone option. What I might do is go for single din in my 100HP. That leaves the 'cubby hole' in the fascia. I'll drill a hole through the back of the cubby hole and run the microphone through there and fix it in. Might not be perfect position for voice recognition but at least I don't need to start pulling the interior about to route it.

Re: Double Din head unit with built in microphone

I have got a Kenwood double din head unit and I just ran the ext. mic to the left of the speedo with the wire tucked away behind the head unit. There's loads of space behind the unit to deal with cable's etc. This meant fitting the steering wheel control adapters was a easy deal too.
