Needed item to retain factory navigation (RTI) when installing USA Spe
2002 Volvo V70
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
First of all, kudos for USA Spec for making this available for what I consider to be a small target market. The PA11-VOL interface is meant to be used for: S60 - 2001-2005 V70 - 2001-2005 S80 - 2001-2005 S40 - 2001-2004 V40 - 2001-2004 Of all those models listed above, it's my estimation that a very small number came equipped with the factory navigation system that plugs in to the back of the factory radio into the external cd changer port. This "Y-splitter" lets you keep your factory navigation and still add Ipod/aux integration. Kudos for Crutchfield for selling it and also keeping it in stock. Shipping was extremely quick.
Pros: retains factory nav
Cons: price - There are competitors that sell products similar to the PA11-VOL. One also sells a similar "Y-splitter" that is about 1/2 the price of USA Spec's CAS VOL NAV... but you'd have to wait for overseas delivery. The other competitor has a splitter built-in to their installation harness.
