      Possible New Head Unit for P1 Cars

      Looks interesting, concerned about S60 reviews though

      Interested. Time to do some research.

      mhm. not fully convinced. the fitment doesn't seem perfect. also, the OEM volvo display seems to work as an overlay. (which probably isn't that bad, but coulnd't they integrate the functions into their screen design?)

      it all depends on the price, I guess. also, the yt video kinda causes eye cancer. for a serious company, at least some quality videos would have been nice.

      they make units for other volvos, some SS users have install pics/how to's .. in R forum

      they say that the Volvo C30/V50/S40/C70 Headunit has been in the works for 2 years. the key to it working is the "ICE adapter" it is an adaptor that bridges with the canbus and judging from the other models this will be $400-500 euros .. $550-700

      That $700 is in addition to the screen? How many different pieces are in the setup?

      Yeah, I think I would get it too.

      Oops, just posted another thread about this. I'll delete it.

      Also kind of interested in this, but wondering if it'll work in older model P1s without a SW update.

      Very interesting! I would possibly go for something like this, if it can be integrated PERFECTLY. Meaning it fits seamlessly into the current opening and the integration of the buttons etc. works PROPERLY.

      i'm looking at Bluepower's other units, in order to integrate it with current buttons and steering wheel its an additional $99 and if you want traffic option gps and wifi options its an additional cost as well.

      i'm scared to see the final price with all options

      here is an unboxing of a similar Bluepower for a different model volvo. just to show you how the back and plugs would look like
      the ice link is the coolest part... it shows most of the functionality and the GUI. like using your steering wheel to control your andriod/ios phone and change songs. also works with pandora and the like running on your phone. 19mins long!!

      i'll try and find the other video too

      It depends on many things. My job there are a lot of things going on so who knows what will happen in the next few months. Also my payments are low and car has low miles so just keep it as dd. If I get that wrx coming out. I will try to drive it on weekends only

      Just watched the 19 min video. Looks like they make some quality stuff. But since I didn't see the original video before it was taken down, I'm left wondering what the unit would look like for a P1 car.

      All I have to go on is this...

      For $550-700 the fitment should be perfect.

      If the unit can look good, do what its supposed to flawlessly, and interact with existing buttons properly... I'd be down for a group buy. But I need more info first.

      Exactly what I think. Before I rip anything out of my car to fit this, it MUST blend in with the original equippment and be useable via the radio buttons! I don't want to have to reqire everything to get that in - if I wanted to do that, I could solve this easier and cheaper. So it MUST be a "Plug and Play" item with superior fitting (flush with the waterfall) and with an easy installation.
