Best for a VW Transporter T5 1998-2009 (with a CD)?

Also, the VW Transporter T4 1998-2009

Need a CD?

Are you looking for an Android headunit to fit the T5 with a CD player?
We have reviewed one for you and given you our key points that make it better than the others available.

Although it looks like a standard double din factory radio, the early VW Transporter T5 benefits from a custom-fit Android headunit. This makes the installation much more of a plug-and-play job with factory-style connectors supplied. You also get the very important CAN bus adaptor included in the box.


You need a fast and capable Android headunit that can run google maps; maybe you want to use Sygic instead? A clear 7″ screen must play CDs and use DAB+ radio. Our recommendation for the T5 covers all those bases and more! It can do all the usual Android headunit features like a VW logo on the screen, streaming music, or just FM radio. Wifi and GPS are standard features on an Android headunit, and google maps are free. Hands-free calling is included with his one (with an external microphone option).

Reversing cameras

Yes, yes, yes! You can connect a reversing camera to our recommended headunit. The screen automatically switches to the rearview camera when the reverse gear is selected. It is compatible with any universal reversing camera for an Android headunit. You even get a basic camera supplied in the box; that is all you need.

Available Addons

This Android Headunit is compatible with:

Universal Reversing Cameras,
360-degree camera views,
DAB+ Radio upgrade,
GPS Sat-Nav with Google Maps or Waze,
Aftermarket Steering Wheel Controls (SWC),
