    Dash USB Not working (aftermarket H/U)

    Just plugged my phone into the dash usb socket to charge it and it’s not working. The van has a Kenwood DNX516 stereo with 2 USB leads in the glovebox, so I assume that the dash usb doesn’t work due to the aftermarket unit? Will something like this reinstate it? Thanks

    Head Unit Owner Opinions wanted - Sony XAV-AX100 or JVC offerings?

    I'm looking at head units. I want Carplay, but can't really justify spending £500+ on the head unit, so I'm looking at cheaper alternatives to the Kenwood 8019 that every-man-and-his-dog on this forum seems to have! I'd been considering the Pioneer sph da130dab, but went to Halfords the other...
