Feedback on the free option above; USB only hasn't been  stable enough to be fit for purpose. When it works, it's 100%. Sometimes it just won't behave though.

Update on this. Discovered Mute+Nav+Back combination which, while it simply shouldn't be necessary, it has brought the free option in to the realms of fit-for-purpose. Has taken a couple of resets in a row to get it working sometimes but I can do that on the move and so far it's eventually come up every time and kept stable thereafter. What's more, with perseverance I got Waze to work too.

Been thinking about having this installed and considering doing it myself, the parts are readily available now from dealers. I am worried about removing part of the dash to access the CMU to install the new cables.

Had a service recently and asked them to update the the software (ready for me to do the hardware install myself) but they said it would take 3 hours to do so I would have to book it in and there maybe a charge, so I decided to install the software (v70) myself, it was really easy and took approx 40 mins.  Just need to find the courage to install the hardware.
