Google is your friend! :clap:

Thanks Stewart I feel a bit of a tit now I did misread what DIN was I promise I wont ask daft questions again I think :beer:


I think much that I learned throughout my life was from asking so called "stupid questions", until Google came along; then nobody knows what elementary info you are seeking (well possibly some database inside Google does).
Owning up here: I hadn't a clue what DIN meant with regard to car radios, so typed "din car radio", and Bob's your uncle, I can appear knowledgeable! :oops:
when ducks in a row, will buy an RCZ

DIN means no more or less than that it is a German standard https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutsches_Institut_f%C3%BCr_Normung
and they have standards for everything (just like ANSI for the US, BSI for the UK and ISO for international standards).
For slots in the dashboard the standard covers the dimensions of the slot, so single DIN is one slot (like the RT6) and dual DIN is for a device that covers two slots on top of each other (such as NG4).
My car history:
2010 Peugeot RCZ HDi 163hp blue tuanake full options
2001 Peugeot 307 3-door XSi HDi 110hp blue recife
1995 Peugeot 306 3-door XNd 70hp rouge analou
