That's the way to go I think, I don't really think the iPhone app will do the trick but I'll try it.

Plus you get to install a cool DAB antenna to the windscreen.

With the new system I also get multiple usb outlets + all the other modcons which weren't around in the 90's (Bluetooth and Pandora - whoever she is...).

Have a link to the unit you have. I need to upgrade the SLK radio.

Comes with everything (Mic / remote control / steering wheel control wiring). Small mic fitted - pictured.

The only issue I have is that with my glass roof the display is'nt bright enough.
