7" Retrofit
« on: July 30, 2018, 02:28:13 pm »
Just bought my wife a 66 595C Turismo and it comes with the 5" Nav. Has anyone explored the possibility of retrofitting the Uconnect units, and in my instance, upgrading from the 5" to 7"?

    Hi Eeef,

    Retrofitting factory  7" is around 2k(quoted by Abarth Slough) for the unit itself and I was advised it's not possible to retrofit easily.

    I opted for a high end Pioneer AVIC unit, whilst retaining all the features with the U-Connect.  Below is what I paid and work was carried out by Sound Evo in Watford. Much better than the standard 7" system with tons more features.  I also had a slim under-seat Alpine amp installed at the same time, beats the Beatz system :)

    See below link for a pic of the unit in place



    Pioneer AVIC-F980DAB - £580 (+20 DAB optional) or Kenwood DNX-5170DAB - £640

    Fiat 500 U-Connect (power adapter) + (Steering Wheel Control retention): £180

    Fiat 500 Double DIN Fascia and Brackets CT23FT31 - £50.00

    Installation:  £150
