Plenty of 2DIN options from all leading brands. Those with built in navigation tend to be a bit expensive. The steering audio controls will cease to operate post the transplant.
While you can fit any 2DIN system in the Scorpio, I d recommend you buy the ones available in India due to easy warranty issue claims if they arise. The brands that I recommend are JVC and Pioneer. Also, I do not recommend installing a system with navigation because of two reasons. a) The navigation black box alone costs around 15k which is too…[Read more]
Ideally, just for navigation, buy a standalone navigation device and install it on your dashboard or windscreen. You can get good devices from Garmin, MapmyIndia & even Satguide.
Important Note : Navigation devices do come with touchscreen, music, video playback so you will not miss a conventional player as such do check these options as they solve everything and are reasonably priced too
Thanks friends, people who own Scorpio would agree lack of space in scorpio around dashboard. So I am looking to get indash unit.
The independent GPS unit can also be placed on the windscreen using the easily available vacuum holders.
Devdath Narayan ji kindly suggest a good touchscreen player that can work with the steering audio controls
Shreyans Jain ji is there any model available that can work with steering controls ?
Very difficult to get the steering controls working with an aftermarket head unit.
but is it possible ?
I don’t think so. An alternate is to have the new head unit’s remote mounted on the steering. You get the same functionality, but it wont look half as nice.
Hemant, you need to start your car and let it idle for a while before you start driving. Due to the cold the engine takes longer to heat up and you should wait for that to happen before you drive off. You will be able to tell that the engine has reached the optimum temperature based on the sound and vibrations.
Thanks Rishabh, does this mean that these vibrations are normal?
It is not out of the ordinary to have starting trouble during winters, so if the vibration goes away once the engine heats up then yes it is normal and there is no need to worry. If the Vibrations persist even after the car has been running for a while then you should get it checked
I have a Scorpio too, and in cold weather it sounds really miserable. It shouldn’t shudder too much as that’s indicative of a loose or worn engine mount, but otherwise there is a bit of shudder. That’s something you have to live with in winter. You’ll need to idle it for a minute or so, to let it settle down before pressing the accelerator or driving off.
Mine is the CRDe variant, and in the cold, it automatically raises the engine rpm to 1100 rpm on start up, and then slowly drops it to 850 once it warms a bit. Only after the engine settles down, do I move off.
Engines also feel cold mate, specially diesel ones. They need time to heat up. That shudder is normal, and is a classic sign of a powerful engine coming to life after its short hibernation. Its all cool, and just let it ideal for about a minute, then pump the hell out of that engine.
Hi, Hemant. How is your experience in city and highway with Scorpio AT. I am also planning to go for it but never got the TD by dealer in Delhi for past six months!
