Does any one know the part numbers for the sony compatable leads which autoleads do for stearing wheel control and the display on the top of the dash.

If you do who are the better people to get them from

If you have a newish megane with 'update list' on your head unit (printed on the lower right had side of stereo) auto leads don’t do a lead for it.

There is a company called InCarTec who do a lead which allows you to use the steering controls with a Sony head unit, here is a copy of a email I received of them:

Hi

We have this item in stock and at the moment is only available from us as we are not rolling it out to the new year, the cost of the unit is £79 including postage & packaging with your choice of stereo end.

I have attached a info sheet on the product

Yes this InCarTec company does one for the 'update list' megane.

But the only thing displayed on the display is the name of the maker of your headunit. For example if I installed an Alpine Headunit 'ALPINE' will be displayed.

Main advantage of the kit is allowing you to use the steering wheel controls.

In some of the renault accessory books its says about different headunits like VDO ones and sony ones. I wonder if Renault do an adapter themselves? so the display still works.

I spoke to InCarTec yesterday and the new adapter should display the radio manufacturer name but also things like "Vol Up", "Vol Down" and "Mute". Basically most things related to a steering control related action. They don't seem to be able to interface with any head units changer control which is why nothing clever is displayed.

Its a shame they can't get together with Connects2 who can interface to get RDS/Track info etc, but who aren't very good at getting it on the display.
