Yeti Gets Infotainment Upgrade

is xtrons any good? fitted and using
My Yeti came with the factory 'Blues' radio/CD player.
Fine, back in 2010, but today, no way. Out it comes.

Not acceptable today

This old thing has got to go.💩

My requirements:
  • Android
  • single din
  • removable faceplate
  • support for dash camera
  • support for rear camera
  • Bluetooth capable
  • input for aftermarket steering wheel controls
A weekend of searching and reading reviews etc. I have settled on something:

The D771A from Xtrons

Single DIN yet with a motorised 7″ HD touch screen (basically a tablet). Detachable faceplate. Android. Bluetooth. Wi-Fi. 4G. DAB. DVD player. Reversing camera compatible. Sat Nav. USB ports. Two SD card slots. It goes on.
I ordered one and it arrived fast.

At the same time, I ordered some other things from Amazon that I knew I would need:
  • single din cage
  • CAN-BUS adaptor
  • facia/face plate
A couple of hours on Saturday and my awesome new infotainment system is installed and fully operational.

My Yeti ain't got the 'Blues' no more 😉

Just a heads up: many of my posts contain affiliate links of products I have bought for my Yeti.
If you buy something from one of these links, you will not pay a penny more.
I will get a small commission, although not every time.
The extra pennies help me to pay the annual cost of the domain name.
I thank you for your support.
