Laguna 2 Bluetooth stereo

Hi,
My first post... hope there's some help out there!

I have taken out the standard 1 din cd player in my 05 Laguna 2.

I would like to have a genuine renault stereo that has bluetooth compatibility for my phone...

Can these be resourced easily? any ideas?

I have a CLarion head unit with a horrible surround that is in at the moment but it doesn't use the steering control or clock... which would be nice...

Be good to hear about some experiences with possible solutions.... ta

Jim

Re: Laguna 2 Bluetooth stereo

hi, Being an 05 plate, i bet you have the facelift laguna 2. I have the one where the radio is behind the flap an 04 plate. I have done away with the renault unit, bought an autoleads kit, and then purchased a sony bluetooth stereo with the steering wheel socket on the back.

the autoleads kit just plugs into the existing loom, then into the radio. the other end connects behind the clock.

I now have better unit, and steering wheel controls!! Only down side is the display dont display the radio, but who cares!! It works.

My friend has a facelift, and his dad is a painter. hes bought facia plate, and got his dad to match the dash colour better. With a bit of modification to hold it in better, this too doesnt look out of place. However he did look for a headunit that matched the look of the car.

Re: Laguna 2 Bluetooth stereo

As far as I know, Renault didn't build bluetooth into the head units at the time,
but used an external bluetooth adapter, the Parrot CK4160 or CK4260, if I'm not mistaken…

If the dashtop display and the steering column remote stalk are your only reasons for wanting a Renault head unit,
then there's still some hope in the aftermarket, so read on…

I've fit an Alpine head unit into mine, and the APF-D101RE works a charm with the display.

If your factory head unit model is Tuner List, both Alpine and Pioneer offer a remote interface that also utilizes the external display on the dash top.
The one from Alpine is called APF-D101RE, and the Pioneer one is called CA-D-PI.180.

If the factory head unit model is Update List, however, I've only seen compatible adapter from Alpine, model being APF-D102RE.

In order to utilize the display feature, the head unit must also support this.
Some of Alpine's models have a dedicated connector called "Vehicle Display Interface",
while Pioneer uses the IP-bus for this purpose, so if you choose them, get a head unit that's got IP-bus (because not all models do)

If you're not too fussy with the display, but still want the steering remote stalk, there are more brands to choose from, in addition to more models from Alpine and Pioneer.

Most of the big names in car audio offer units with either built-in bluetooth,
or with the option of adding a bluetooth module that plugs into the back, which you just fit somewhere in a cavity using heavy-duty velcro.

Re: Laguna 2 Bluetooth stereo

Ok, I joined this forum (my first post to solve a similar situation;

I have a '06 Renault Scenic with a stock "update list" radio cd, and I'd like to switch it for a bluetooth capable HU - but to retain the stalk & in-dash display radio/cd info at the same time.

I searched thoroughly the forums, and this thread has the closest info I could find. Did I understand correctly that only Alpine offers the necesary kit (APF-D102RE), or does Pioneer (or any other) have a similar kit? It would seem a bit odd if not IMHO...

Not to mention Alpine is quite pricey...

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

APF-D102RE is the correct kit for Alpine if you currently have an "Update List" head unit.

I wasn't able to find something with display support from Pioneer for the Update List.
There is, however, one that supports the steering remote, called CA-R-PI.184 or CA-R-PI.184v2, and it doesn't require a head unit with IP-bus either.

I know Alpine carries a slightly higher price tag, but I felt it was worth the money anyway.
Besides, they've been campaigning Bluetooth head units recently.
