Hi all. I'm hoping someone can help me. I just purchased a 2005 Hyundai Elantra with the basic cassette player. I looked online at best buy and circuit city for a cd/mp3 player. They have a program to see if they have any players that will fit. According to both sites nothing fits. Does anyone know what cd/mp3 player would fit my car and possibly why it would say that nothing fits?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Their lists are probably just not up to date.

Here's a site that will tell you what brands will fit your vehicle - they also supply various adapters if the replacment unit is differnt from the factory plugs and you are not into splicing wires

I advise you to go to crutchfield.com and click on "What fits my car?" link at the top right hand corner of the page.

I own a 2005 Hyundai Elantra with radio cassette. I bought a Dual XD7600 car stereo with iPlug from Amazon.com for $115.99 + Metra 70-7301 wiring harness ($9.99). I will be installing the unit as soon as it gets delivered.

Refer to this forum thread for installation instructions.

Also, I suggest you register at hmaservice.com and once logged in to your account, click on the "Service Information" link at the top left hand corner. Choose model and year of your car and then click on the "Shop" tab. Instructions on how to remove the factory radio will be under Body Electrical System > Audio and Antenna > Audio Unit > Removal

Hope this helps,

Ed

I installed the Dual brand unit in my '05. I bought it at Best Buy for less than $100. It comes with a rear aux input (RCA plugs) and a mini plug extension port that can be mounted any where for easy access.

Installation is a snap. You don't need a mounting kit. A wire harness adapter will make life easier, but you can also get by without that. (Cutting and splicing does make re-installing the factory radio more difficult.)

I use mine with an external XM receiver and the whole system works well. The Dual unit is also easy to operate with it's large rotary knob. That helps when you have 51 year old eyes!

Hello,


I've just recently purchased a new 'O5 GLS sedan and am also looking at updating the stock HU -

It seems like I've read about issues getting aftermarket units to sit flush with the dash -

Did the dual unit have that problem? I want a CD/MP3 player but I don't want any gaps in my dash around the stereo.

Any suggestions for good units in the sub $200 price range would be great too



Thanks,

I removed the mounting brackets from the factory radio and mounted those to the aftermarket mounting sleeve. (I used pop rivets and then hammered them down to make them as flush as possible.) The Dual unit slid into the sleeve and locked into place. I then used the factory mounting screw to attach the new radio to the dash.

The Dual unit came with a trim piece that nicely filled in the gap around the sleeve. I also used 1/4 inch washers between the bracket and the dash to "fine tune" the mounting depth. (Stack as many washers as necessary to get the correct depth - I used two on each screw.)

I'm really particular when it comes how well things fit. My unit fits snug and looks great. Also, I have experienced no squeaks, rattles or creaks in over 3000 miles of use.
