I***8217;m planning to buy a 2003-2004 Vel Satis privilege or initiale which uses the built-in 16:9 LCD monitor for navigation and radio. I first thought about changing the radio for the new model, but this doesn***8217;t seem to be possible. Thinking this over I still would not be satisfied with this solution even if it had worked. I decided I wanted to change the whole radio and navigation stuff. The idea is to use the Alpine vehicle hub pro, which I want to install as you can see on the attachment. I only want to use the original speakers and display. The original radio is still installed, but it***8217;s not connected. This way it***8217;s a nice anti-theft option because you almost don***8217;t see anything from the installed Alpine stuff.

This way I have a great sound, very good dvd based navigation, iPod, Bluetooth and subwoofer connection option.

I do have 2 questions about the display:
  • Is the 16:9 display indeed only used for navigation and radio, or is it also used to display any other information.
  • How is it connected: composite video or RGB?

(I think the same display is used in other Renaults like the espace)

Hi there, some pretty technical questions, but I'll try my best...

The display shows all the audio functions, plus (just to keep myself correct) the door opening & seatbelt warning.

I have seen RGB (I don't know what it means) on the user settings sub-menu, so I would presume that is the method used.

Hope that helps (you might want to double check this before carrying on).


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

Thanks Paul.

Good tot hear it's only the door opening & seatbelt warnings. That's essential information one can live without .

RGB (Red Green Blue) connection is used when these colours are transmitted separate to the display device. This way you get the best and sharpest picture.

It would very nice if somebody got a wire ring scheme from this connection, since there's no Alpine adapter available. Or more information on the cabeling from the original radio / nav.
