Hi everyone,

Apologies if this has been asked before. I've got a 2012 Citroen C3 Airdream Vtr+ E-Hdi S-A and was looking to replace the stock head unit with an Android Head unit.
Since the car only has a 1 DIN slot, I purchased an ]XTRONS TR704L, due to the way the surrounding plastic of the car is curved that hasn't unfortunately been a good fit, so I may return it.

I found the CT23CT11 by Connects2, which claims it allows conversion to a double DIN slot (see video).



However I'm not sure if this is compatible with my car as it for example doesn't have the SOS button.
I was wondering if anyone could take a look at the picture I attached of my car please and let me know whether this would fit or not before I purchase it.

Thank you

Hello TheHumanUser

Interesting username, dare I ask which humans you use? :lol:

I can't confirm but it looks to me as though the Connects2 kit contains two blanking plugs for the switch positions.

I've used Connects2 adaptors before and found them to be well thought out and a good fit, also if you have questions they have a good technical department, if you still have doubts you can always contact them direct.
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence and pretend you never tried :lol:

Hi,
Thanks for the reply.

Lol, to be honest I hadn't noticed how it reads, originally I went with "TheHuman", but that was taken for one forum, so I added "User" as in "Username".

Back to the topic, as far as I know they don't sell to the public, so would they be willing to answer the question on whether it would fit?

Thanks

I've spoken to Connects2 a couple of times by phone and also emailed, they have been very helpful and don't seem worried if you are the end user, trade or a re-seller.

That's great. I'll definitely give that a try tomorrow then.
Thank you.
