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)
