Standard Radio to NBT Upgrade Parts Check

Hello

I'm sourcing parts for an NBT upgrade I'd like to know what parts I exactly require i already have a list and was wondering if i need anymore

- NBT Headunit
- NBT Screen
- Touch Controller
- Cable for Unit to Screen
- Usb Cable
- Navigation Antenna
- Emulator for touch controller

However, will i need an emulator if I don't upgrade my touch controller?

It's probably less expensive to sell/trade the car in and get one equipped the way you want it.

Def not cheaper to trade car in don't listen to him but u do not need an emulator for touch controller, u need the ecu for touch controller I u want the touch function. If u don't then u only need the controller. U do however need the emulator for fsc codes unless u wanna buy them which then it gets expensive. U also would need a Bluetooth antenna

Thanksfor your reply!

Ok so I've seen a harness kit

Will this enable the use of the controller

No u still will need the ecu for the touch function. In this ad it's the little box that says ece-us. Again u don't "need" it unless u want the touch function. It can b used with out it so up to u.
