      You can install only music streaming without control and oled display.

      Without major surgery the only aftermarket option is the very expensive BluePower Android unit, which is basically a cheap and cheerful android unit split into two boxes (one goes in the glove box the other replaces the screen, and a wiring harness to hook the two together and connect it to the car... it is certainly not plug and play, not as good as it could be and support is a lot less than excellent.

      The new version of the bluepower unit ships this week. I'll post a review after install.

      Do you have usb? Use a Bluetooth to usb unit
      Do you have AUX IN? Use Bluetooth aux in adaptor.
      Or else a Bluetooth to fm adaptor

      I assume the iSimple Tranzit BLU HF would work for the 2006+. I installed in my 2005, less expensive than the GROM unit.

      If your car came with an i-pod connection then try the Bovee1000 on Amazon. I've got one and it's great. If not Volvo used to make a retrofit kit to add factory iPod connectivity. it's not the cheapest rout but it's it's full factory,works well and is cheaper than bluepower.

      When I had a V50 with Premium Sound, I added a Denison Gateway 500 and was very satisfied with the sound quality. And, yes, I am an audio snob. My present V50 came with the horrid basic sound and I've made some upgrades but it is loud but sub-par. I am considering the Bluepower and even running external amps.

      The 2012 P1s could stream Bluetooth audio I wonder if you could just swap head units and the module and maybe get a software update. Sirius xm on those too.

      I know for certain that this will not work for the 2004.5-2006 and probably not 2007. I tried a 2007 w/aux and a 2008 ICM in my 2005 but no joy. I can't speak for the post-face lift P1s. If you want to try, grab an ICM and the CD player.

      I would imagine you would need a software update as well. Dont know if it's ever been done though.

      By 2010, doesn't it have an AUX input? If so, all you need is a BT to AUX-in dongle. I've been pretty happy with my Blaupunkt one.

      Even if you replace icm and radio the problem is in the CEM It tells the icm what to display would need to find one and flash your VIN in able to install it... Hard to do

      I have tried on both, I have been messing with it for a while and found the information that is displayed comes from the CEM. Would need to have it flashed from volvo or do some jtag modding

      I am still trying to decode a v50 CEM, but yes a software update is needed as all information comes from the CEM.


      Although. you have a couple of options, You can install a new headunit loose all waterfall controls. Try to make your own headunit(raspberry pi, ardunio) which I have done, but you wont see anything on your display. Contact wchpikus for his unit in which you take apart your radio and plug it in(not complicated although I still am waiting to hear back from him hey wch) or finally a fm bt adapter

      Sorry wish I could help more
