Some what easy (also a pain) but I would almost go with a android unit. I order a unit for me in Switzerland. Its a model PX5 Android 8.0 autoradio .
It took me a while to swap out the units as I am not a car guy and know how to take everything apart. I am a tech guy so I look at items that could work and do research.

I am looking at making a video at some point. Will let you know.

How easy would it be to change the standard cd6000 to the dab sony unit fitted to other kugas.
Cheers
Deviant kuga,

I can't comment on that particular swap, however, I have just ordered an Android 8 (Oreo) head unit for my Kuga, which means if the swap is successful and the Android unit works as advertised then potentially I may have a Sony DAB unit up for sale.
In the meantime, I'll post a thread with pictures of my install as and when I get round to doing it.

I'm hoping it should be fairly easy.

Hi Andy,

I'm new to the forum and new to ford!

Have purchased a 2009 Kuga and have also purchased the following headunit for it:


Look at this on eBay
https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/302132644532

However, took it to my local mechanic and although says in description will ft kuga 2008-2012 it doesn't as this is a NON-CANBUS unit?
I've been looking at adapter kits for it but my heads a bit frazzled by it all? Being female and all 🤣🤦‍♀️

Just paid quite a bit for stereo & DAB+ without paying to have it fitted (mind you if I can find the correct adapter I'll fit myself)

Any ideas on what adapter I need???

P.s. just got car back and my lovely 6000cd will no longer switch on 😔

Most of them are actually plug and play because the quadlock provided is a direct fit.
However, most of the time you wont have steering controls and it is likely that the radio will only work with ignition.
When you know a little about car electrics, it is very easy to fix these problems.

Hi tarmo
Forgive my ignorance,what is "quad lock"as I don't have steering wheel controls I doubt I will miss them.
Cheers

Quadlock is the name of the connector used in many newer vehicles to connect the car and media headunit.
Its name comes from combining ISO and miniISO and some other connectors into one big connector. Google will show pictures.

Just fitted one aftermarket unit from fleabay, alot of messing about with the fitting but now flushed, sat nav was the main reason for the upgrade. Comes with loads of apps plus you can add more so worth the effort and I am just waiting now to fit a DAB app. I wanted to know if anyone could answer, there are two connectors one white and one black...and what are they for.
