DAB and ipod input for Phase III Espace
The Pioneer radios in these cars are hard to get, living as they do under the drivers seat. A number of people have posted ideas and modifications to allow add-ons. I thought I'd post mine here - it adds a DAB (Digital Radio) function and an audio input for an ipod or Sat Nav.
I've just done the job - works well, I can send photos to anyone who wants to copy me!
Basically involves fitting an ICS100 DAB reciever under the passenger seat, and connecting this to the original pioneer unit The manufacturers website is http://www.dabincar.co.uk/acatalog/a...timonials.html
You can buy the units for less than £50 from
. Fit a pod to control the thing onto the dash and you're done. The pod IS a little fiddly to operate - see the comments on review sites, but it does neatly add DAB reception and an external input to the original Espace II setup without removing any of the original functionality or requiring mods to that rare Pioneer amplituner.
