I have a double din system with steering controls working, but its not cheap. the OP says "reasonable price" so if there is a tight budget, then mine will not be the solution.

but, what I have is a Kenwood DNX 7420BT and steering controls adapter. fits straight in with just the addition of a single wire (switched live)

Hi Mark, sorry for appearing dim ! I am assuming a double din unit is sat nav intergrated unit that works with the original steering controls?
