charlotte7651 - unfortunately mine did not =[
Oh, that's a shame. We gave up with feeding all the cables to the back of the unit in the end and got a pro to do it, even he said it was a nightmare! Got a new car now though and we shan't be doing it all again!
Thank you for sharing this!
Do you still have this head unit? Great piece of kit and easy to install but only problem is the boot up logo can be changed to SEAT but the menu page only has vw/skoda to chose from did you find any way around this RobDon or anyone else?
Anyone know this, as i'm looking to get one?
Just returned my Android (Pumpkin) as i just couldn't get it to be reliable with WIFI and radio reception was pants
I want to change my stereo in my 2009 seat Leon.
What do I need?
The square adapter with the screws or the top fascia?
Because how I suppose to fit the unit with the screws if I have only the top fascia?

Have a look at my videos, read my comments where I detail what I used
With the Seat surround https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Spw-H6yfrh8
Please can anyone help and suggest why my XTRONS TB706APL isnt powering on? I have connected with the correct connector Autoleads BMW Harness Adpator PC2-75-4. I have noticed the Seat stereo (which is working) has one of those 10A mini fuses while the Xtrons has the standard size 15A fuse. Do I need to change the fuse in the fuse box to match?
BMW Harness ?
Went into Halfords and gave them the reg, it bought up details of my car on their screen and they went and fetched the harness which connects all correctly.
I thought you are here because it doesn't work, I would expect any harness to fit an ISO connector
Any harness doesn't connect as there are different connections and I originally bought the wrong one (PC2-69-4 which is for the earlier LEON). The Halfords person advised me the same connector fits the car group BMW, VW, Skoda, Audi and Seat. I have double checked the connector with Halfords on their national line. Are you insisting this is wrong and you are right?
Dunno, but I'm the one who fitted a different head unit that works and not with BMW compatible kit.
Hopefully, I may have found the answer on the xtrons support page
In general If you have purchased an ISO adapter or your vehicle has a standard ISO connection getting power to your unit should be as simple as plugging the connections together, however there are a few exceptions.
These exceptions will generally present in one or more of the following ways.
-The unit will not switch on
-The unit will not hold the memory function for the time or radio
-The unit will switch on at first installation and will not switch on after the ignition or stereo is switched off
-The unit lights up when reset is pressed but will not switch on
If you are experiencing any of the above or something similar you will need to make slight alterations to how the ISO is wired.
For correct operation the stereo needs to be powered as descibed here
-Yellow Wire 12V permanent
-Red Wire 12V Switched from the ignition (ACC)
Most commonly this is resolved by "Reversing the Lives" this is simply removing the RED and YELLOW wire and exchanging their position in the ISO . Each pin has a small tab that can be depressed with a small flat screwdriver allowing you to remove the pin from the ISO connection, when removed press the tab out so it will lock into place when reinserted.
I bought a generic VW fitting kit from Ebay that was junk and failed for the same reason, I don't know why Halfords sold you what they did but I had no joy until I bought this
I could have dicked about with routing permanent lives etc but I wanted to do it right
Thanks for trying to help. Anyway it still doesn't work and something else may be to blame. Either of those two wiring configs should power the unit on whatever the other connections. I will take the whole lot to Halfords tomorrow then we can see if the HU unit is faulty.
Will this adapter suffice?
Yes that looks like the one I used, because I was asked here to do so I uploaded a video of my fitting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNy4gZFnzyI
and I listed the components in the More info
I do have a question though.. Is it possible to connect my stock "aux" input in my centre console to the "aux" input on the stereo?
Or do i have to re-route the cable from the back of my new head-unit and have a cable out?
I think you lose that function as soon as you take out the stock unit so to get it back would be something like your suggestion
