Regards the RNS/D2 situation - their are loads of head units that will replace the installed unit and give you all the modern stuff - I know people on the TT forum have installed Android (and other) units and got them to work properly.
This is interesting. I have a RNS-D unit installed on my D2 S8 and I want a reversing cam and to stream music. I am veering away from an Android unit as I want to keep the original look but I in my infinite unwisdom can't work out how to do that! Use the defunct TV tuner for the cam and a hidden bluetooth module maybe? Plus how long will FM/AM be available, however I've been asking myself that for about 12 years now!

So andorid unit may have to do. Where can you get the correct blanking plates for these, sorry it's been a very long while since I've upgraded any ICE stuff! Think it was a radio/cassette and two big chunky speakers on the rear shelf on my Cortina!

Done all that plus digital TV. Though I don't have a TV tuner so have an extra interface box for the camera (CVBS to RGB made by T-era but NLA). All sits happily alongside a full Xcarlink.
Summary is in the final post (#90) in a rather long meandering thread: http://forum.a8parts.co.uk/showpost....3&postcount=90
With a TV tuner it would be slightly simpler to install I think.

2016 Volvo V40 T5 Cross Country (4WD) with ALL the toys including adaptive cruise etc. etc. Osmium Grey with Blonde/Charcoal leather interior.
Finally: gone, but not forgotten.....

e.g. Cruise control, NavPlus/TV, Bose, GSM, Xenons, Solar roof, Parking sensors, Alcantara/leather everywhere of course. (internal dimming mirror added later)

This should work I believe :

No blanking plate required (might need a slight trim though)

Seemed to be all mid and top range when used in my car.
If I used the phone connected to the XCarLink using the cable then all was good (so used to do that).

He just needs to find someone on eBay that will ship it to exotic locations like the 'Isle of Wight'.

Yep, the challenge of living offshore! I wouldn't mind but Royal Mail just treat us as a normal UK postcode and don't charge more.

The best one is the RAC (or is it AA? One of them anyway). If you have European cover and breakdown in Rome they will bring your car all the way back to the UK, but won't recover it to the Isle of Wight even if that's where you live in the UK!

Oh come to the annual meet! We could have a good moaning session about the cost of postage to our isolated offshore islands that we foolishly believe are part of the UK.

This week the suspension was replaced with coilovers and had them set a little lower than the car would have been from the factory.
Rides a lot nicer now and liking the looks









See how I get on with it, but may lower it a little more
