Summary of the summary thread:
* The dealer-advertised dash-mounted unit is generally held to be rubbish for the price, so avoid.
* Then there's the range of premium VW/Skoda units that integrate with the head unit and MFD (depending on car, may not apply to some trend-line vehicles):
<> 9W2 features A2DP music streaming but no phone book download
<> 9W3 features address book download but no music streaming
<> 9W7 features both of these with more features/settings. Check part numbers to make sure you're getting the latest version available so you don't miss out on any features (such as track skipping via the car controls).
<> 9WZ is similar to 9W7 but also feature Remote SIM (RSAP) mode. Calls are made via a car antenna instead of the phone, and SMS messages can be sent from the RNS510 keypad. This mode disables 3G Internet on your phone however, and not all phones support RSAP.
Units can be purchased from eBay or CarSystems.pl (products from CS usually arrive in Melbourne within 4 business days).
