Hi John,

There are a range of different audio head units in the sl600, what is the make and model of the current unit?

If your just looking to swap it out this is about an hours job, however if your current unit doesnt support GPS for example then the engineer will need to install a antenna\receiver.

This is the unit in the car,can you tell which it is and what would replace it

Hello,
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!
Nicola
