Hello Steve,
as it is coming from a different car model, it will have to be calibrated to the paramaters of a 208 and then first it will be possible to code it to your car. Appart from that, you will need a satnav antena in order to make the navigation work. The two USB on the back is just a plus, so you will be able to fit two USB sockets on the front.

Thanks for the information,do you know how I would go about getting it calibrated to my 208, can it be done with diagbox or is it a dealers only. Regards

It cannot be done with Diagbox and the dealers will probably not do it either. But luckily for you, there is a guy in the UK that can do this kind of jobs. I will drop you a private message with the contact details.

If they come from a 208, it is just a matter of coding. If they come from a 2008, it will not be much trouble either. Anything else must be calibrated.

You can ask as often as you need :)

If the unit doesnt have DAB, you will not have DAB. It is that easy :)

All units SHOULD have bluetooth. It is prehistoric (bluetooth 1.0) but it works.

Hi I bought a diagbox obd vci off aliexpress,I put the software on laptop with version 7.82 in order to change vin number on smeg module,I then got a unit I needed with satnav and installed it,I bought gps adapter with blue connector on and just put it in dash,think was about £5 , to change vin, all I did was fault find with diagbox and telematics has a fault,cause of vin, did repair,configuration,manual configuration, then vin identification, and just put your car vin number and click on cogs,bottom right, which is to write, then all done, total time about 10 min, install and change vin, regards steve
