Stereo upgrade. 2014 Caddy

Post by Btwellz » Thu Apr 29, 2021 8:40 am

Hi Guys and Girls.

Would anyone have any recommendations for a half decent head unit upgrade. Mainly for playing music via Bluetooth. I do have an iPhone so any info and advise re Apple Play would be great. I’m a new member so quietly building my posts up.

There are so many units on fleebay im kinda lost with it all.

I have a 2014 caddy with non Bluetooth stereo , CD player.

Cheers.

Ben

I have A Genuine RNS 510 with revision index R
with a Mobridge bluetooth module to stream audio

The sound output on this device is significantly improved
but did not meet my requirements so i bought a used Match Audio system with a subwoofer to fit in the spare wheel space
as our caddy doesnt have a spare wheel space inside the cabine im going to dissasembly the subwoofer and fit the 2 subwoofers sepereate under the 2 seats the nice part is its just plug and play disconnect your quadlock connector behind your radio and fit the quadlock adapter thats within the match set

and your whole audio installation is running on a digital sound proccesor that you can adjust with your PC/LAPTOP

if you dont want to take it this far

A RCD 330 will be the best for apple car play it can also stream through bluetooth .... hope my information will help you :D

Thanks so much for the info. I think the RCD 330 will be perfect for my needs.

I’ll have a look now see what I can pick up.

Thanks again.

I did the RCD330, No Name, it looked factory, worked excellent, Apple CarPlay, and added a rear camera to it on my 2012. Very pleased for the price. Installation took about 15 minutes :D :D

Does anyone know which is better or what the difference is between the RCD330 and the RCD360?

I'm finding it all hella confusing.
Basically I have an android phone and would like to display satnav on a screen and Bluetooth music.

I'm going down the cheapo route (to start with).
I picked up a Nextbase DAB350BT for a tenner, unused.
Yes, it will have a small screen thingy sticking up....I may mount it on the roof tray yet.
It seems to work pretty well in the house with the antenna still in its packet with no ground plane!
I'm not too bothered about the Bluetooth, even though its useful, but I must have DAB!
