United Kingdom 2010 Freelander 2 TD4_e GS Manual Stornoway Grey
Pioneer dpa120

So... removed my Alpine stereo the one with the fibre module.

I've replaced it with a pioneer doa120 but so far go no reversing sensors Sad the kit says it should do reversing sensors, is there anything else I. Eed to do that anyone else has come across?

So far.... 2 issues

1: The connects2 canbus bit for the rear parking sensor will not work which is annoying to say the least it should work Smile

2: fm reception is awful, does the Freelander do some weird enhancement of the aerial that is getting confused when going into a stardard radio.

bUt apart from that it's all ok, will just listen to my iPhone till the weekend and will have another go then, but until then this is how it looks. Smile

Can use phone through stereo for calls, sat navy works and speaks through the speakers etc...

England 2013 Freelander 2 SD4 HSE Auto Orkney Grey

I changed a standard Vauxhall head unit for a Chinese made custom fit all in one head unit, and had similar issues with radio reception. Reading up on it, it appeared that the Vx head units had a built in amp/filter inline with the antenna connection so I bought a plug in to connect between the antenna lead and the antenna input on the back of the head unit. It improved things slightly but not by much.
Don't if LR do a similar thing with their head units 2001 FL1 TD4 GS Auto 3 Door Tonga Green

Will pick up a booster tomorrow.

The connct2 canbus bit I'm emailing them waiting to see if they will just send me a replacement part so I can try it.

Any further update on this? as I was thinking of going to Halfords to get it fitted on their 399 fully fitted deal. Specifically I don't want to loose the parking sensors etc.

If they can fully fit it and get them working go for it.

Connects2 said my kit worked in their test car but didn't in my fl2 early 2010 (no reversing sound no matter what I tried)

So I ended up getting a refund and went with a different kit. In the end we needed a kit plus one extra bit, but it works perfectly. We also spent 30 on an eBay to get a reversing camera, that works perfectly when you stick it into reverse.

@Booktrunk, Ive installed the same kit as you, can I ask, does your steering wheel answer/end call toggles work? Also, do your speakers on the tailgate c pillars work?
