It is available for direct retrofit into both Vito vans and Canadian market Metris vans via the MB accessories official channel. I’d guess plug and play.
I would generally guess that comparably equipped US and Canadian market Metris vans are close to identical. The only difference I know of between them is that US Metris cargos are CKDed and Canadian market cargos are not. The two markets are generally speaking standards identical in almost every way except for the use of the metric system.Any guess as to whether the Canadian market Metris is wired the same as the US market version?
Thank you for the info... which wiring interface did you go with?The differences I found in the radios was the actual HD radio and gps features. Europe uses different frequencies. Not sure about Canada. Everything else seems to be the same. I used some Euro parts in my replacement.
For my unit, I used the Metra dash kit. The Pioneer is a single din radio and the stock radio is HUGE. The kit has a small pocket piece that I had not yet installed for the picture. I was still tweaking the install.
The unit has been really good. I am not a huge fan of the AA music players so I play off a USB drive. This means that I need to connect to AA wirelessly, which my phone does not do. I hear Android 11 fixes that for all phones.
The backup picture is huge, which I like. The stock speakers sound much better being driven through this unit by an Alpine amp along with a 10" sealed sub. I found the stock radio to sound very thin.
I chose the Pioneer for the higher resolution screen over competitors. The other caveat is that your phone is your GPS. I had some issues with it when on isolated roads. It stopped tracking my location even though the unit and phone have gps. Not sure why.
Overall, super happy with the new setup.
that is the one I was looking at!... I will add the power antennae. which sub and where did you mount it? IGot the PAC for steering with controls. Also bought the powered antennae adapter.
I just ordered the Pioneer 10.1 head unit and am picking up my Metris Getaway on Wednesday.... Question: are the USB and AUX dash plug, plug and play with the PAC unit? did you need to run anything from the USB-C input on the back of the unit? making sure I have everything I need to install. I am having Crutchfield make up the wiring harness. Thanks
