I dont have the sat nav however in the reference library there is the user guide

https://www.fordmpv.com/smf2/ford-galaxy-reference-library/galaxy-mk2-mfd1-navigation-system-user-guide/

From what i can see you need to do this in the sound settings and change the navigation volume.

Sorry, looks like a completely misread you post  [OUCH]

To turn the radio off when using the Nav, you should be able to press the AUDIO button, and select Radio Off.

To increase the volume of the Nav so it can be heard over the radio, you should be able to press the SOUND button, then go to volume setup. Then find a happy medium.

In theory the when increasing the volume using the normal stick, this should increase both the navigation and radio
However i could be wrong.

Its a shame you can add the feature like some of the newer cars, and mobile phone navs. Turning the music volume down so the nav voice can be heard.

The biggest issue I found with the nav was lack of CD player,it's changer control compatible but if you had vcr or DVD like mine it was radio only.
I only had it for a while but never sussed if you could have nav volume but no radio I just muted the nav as it annoyed me having nav volume that I couldn't hear over radio

Thats a silly design. I though you be able to swap it for a cd in the boot.
However i suppose that depends if you hav a dvd player between front seats

According the manaul you ahould be able to turn the radio off and just have nav volume on

Although to increase the volume it would appear you have to go though settings and have a fiddle
This would probable take some time getting the right balance

Unfortuntley i dont have the nav or id pop out and test.

thanks for that   must have missed the set up screen somehow. know what you mean with no cd,  when we bought it i found the lead in the rear storage box,  bought a cd and tried to plug it in only to find the connections were 2 females rather than a male female, after trying to get a lead  a connector  finally found out from the great chaps on here that if you have dvd system   you cant thave a cd player
on a car when new costing 20k plus what utter crap that they couldnt wire it up to have both..

i since put a usb and 3.5mm jack plug in the rear console wired into the aux socket on the rear of the head unit,  so now just plug the iphone in and use music on there, easier than carrying cds around.
all good fun in the life of a galaxy owner.

I know it's madness only way to have a changer is get a vw one with a lead and find somewhere to fit it if you have the dvd.
Overall I decided to ditch the nav in favour of vw head unit and 6 disk changer,and use iPhone maps instead.
Mine had vcr from factory which has now been swapped for a 6 disk dvd and audio changer wired to the Visteon unit so kids can watch films or listen to cd's with their own headphones. As a result that means I can have peace and quiet from them while still listening to my music :)

I suppose although there is stacks of space in the mk2, cubby holes are limited. I did see someone in the golf MK4 install the 6 CD player into the glove box so they could install the NAV unit. Not sure  how well that would work in the mk2 though.

Still debating what to do with mine however i'd have to start from scratch.

I suppose for about a ton i could swap the switches and climatrion out for a VW one, at least all the LEDs on the centre dash would match. I could then do the VW stereo and cd changer.

I'm investing in auto lights when i take the plug, so the lighting switch will match two. It would only be the dash that bears the ford green which i despise.

I wish i got peace and quiet from the kids  [HAHA]
I end up listing to either the minons game, or animal noises coming from the kids tablets.

I debated seeing about having a changer under a seat but decided was too much hassle to do as I could get head unit and changer off the bay for 30.
How different are the ford centre dash panels then? Take it rather than a square hole it's a typical ford shape?
Apart from work it's the only peace I get, 03.10 this morning it started today!!!! In fact I am actually looking forward to the drive to gatwick in rush hour tomorrow for some peace!

Thats where i orignally though of putting one, but A) changing CDs you have to move the seat forward B) Kids being Kids will spill a drink and you no it will go under the seat just to be a royal pain in the xxxx

Wow its got to be bad if you want to drive in rush hour on the M25  [FUN]



The VW cabin is certainly more pleasing to the eye. Especially the air vents, the Ford has more of a van feel to them.
However that being said, the ford steering wheel and dash are much more pleasing to the eye than the VW's

Ford let then selves down with the stupid mondeo style clock. Who can read that thing at night.
VW were sensible enought to put a digital clock in the dash.


I do have to say, im liking the stereo VW put in the MK2.5 (Facelift) model.
4291-0


4289-1

I dont suppose you have a picture of you galaxy console which has got the two VW stereos in?
Certainly like the idea of them, however just can picture how they'd look installed.

Yes they are a nightmare at present especially Friday's after school,m25 traffic will be a breeze compared to that. Although hoping by time I come off m3 it will have died down on m25.

Can understand vw making their version a bit more desirable, but there are things from both cars I would prefer to make it ideal.
Quite a difference in the centre trim by looks of it, the plastic around stereo thicker on ford hence a standard double din will not fit the hole.

I will get a picture of my dash later as Mrs out in car currently,it does not look out of place in my opinion only thing is illumination is blue at night. And the cd changer did not have illumination out of the box there is another loom you need to power it up,I just made my own and linked to head unit illumination and Earth.

Brilliant pic would be much appreciated.

M3, not too far from me then  :P
I'm sure as kids we were never a nightmare  LOL. Depending on the time your going i suppose. When i have to go on M25, i find going to Gatwick much more of a doddle then Heathrow luckly though I only go up there once a year however the M3 isnt much great at the moment.

Been able to use cruise control twice going to and from work since fixed. I worked it out i would have to sit at 50 MPH to use it constantly. Might save me fuel but be boring as xxxx

I much prefer the cabin of the VW everything looks in place. It doesnt look like a 5 year old designed it  ;D
I am considering when i buy a diesel next year whether to go down the road of VW and swap out the dash and steering wheel for the fords. I think dash will be simple as long as it come out of the TDi, just the steering wheel I think i'd have issues.
Although the mk3 galaxy is growing on me, what i dont like is knowing VW didnt help ford design it. I brought the mk2 2.3 thinking it was a VW engine.

Sharan Mk3 are so dear at the moment looking at 7-8k for one thats done 150k. I think ill stick with the MK2.

I spotted that on ebay. Some multi-changers came with the illum. Simple loop will be a doddle
How did you connect the main unit up? For the looks of it the VW and Ford use different factory plugs.

I was an angel as a kid sure my parents will confit it! ;D
There a couple of options from Wiltshire either m4 or m3 I figured the m3 towards chertsey will avoid one of the problem areas by Heathrow. Picking kids up from school then heading off about 4ish.

I quite like the sharan apart from the rear lights and the price difference for essentially the same vehicle. If and when I upgrade I don't think I would go mark 3 Galaxy it would have to be mark 3 sharan or Alhambra as I just think the overall car is a better product than ford especially the German engines.

As mine had the nav from factory the connectors are ISO same as the unit I put in,there is a conversion lead you can get to go from ford to ISO connector for about 10 I think. With mine the aerial amp is powered by the head unit putting a feed down the coax so I also needed an inline power supply lead. Not sure about the ford set up as that might be powered by a supply out of head unit multiplug?

Ahh, so might need to look into it a bit further then. I have ISO already inplace as this is how my single DIN stereo is connected. All this faffing around, it would be easier to install a touch screen, at least ill have sat nav, rear view camera, DVD player for the kids (although id need to source the headrests).

Yh the lights are what put me off the sharan, The massive red reflector is such a eye sore
Their facelift lights arn't too bad, but still all they have done is taken the massive red reflector off, change the lights and installed a bit of colour coded plastic. Still looks a little tatty.
The wife hates the round lights as well.

Might have to find a nice 05 plate TDi galaxy  8-)

Kids today  :D
I only use the M4 from Cheivley going towards wales. Never go towards reading on the M4.

You certainly cant beat a german engine. Well you can just not in our price range.

How about a late model Mk2 Alhambra? Can't recall what the back end of that looks like off the top of my head though, or if the interior spec and trim is inferior.

I do like the convenience of the heated front screen on the Galaxy though, sadly missing on the Alhambra and Sharan.

The problem with the Visteon headrests is they only work with Visteon control unit I think. I dare say there is an aftermarket headrest screen available or you could go with a drop down one on ceiling?

My wife hates the galaxy or the s**t bus as she calls it. Lol

I have to use m4 quite a bit was on it earlier heading east towards reading,lots of traffic Evan after 9 still good job in works time.

Yes the vag diesels are pretty bomb proof if looked after,get their issues like anything else but generally better than others that are out there. My old Passat 130pd did 200k miles trouble free.

The rear end is similar to Galaxy but all lights are red,the interior is very much like the sharan, price wise they are in between Galaxy and sharan.

Yes the heated front screen is a very nice touch in the winter especially with the pd engine,shame vag didn't use it also

I though someone was telling me fibs about the heated screen.
Well i owe then an apology  [OOPS] 

I did forget about the Alhambra, that was mainly due to the hideous front grill.The VW and Ford are way better.

All round i find the ford is the better looking out of the three, however Ford could of stuck with VW/Seat interior.

Just looked at the Seat and it seems about the same price as the Sharan in my area. And thats for a S not SE.

I had the golf MK4 which was top spec  V6 4Motion. I had this in the winter (dont ask) I truly missed having the heated screen.

I do regret not getting the TDi, however money was tight and i got a cracking deal on my 2.3.
900 115K, year MOT, 3 prev. owners, brand new tyres thought out on a 02 plate.

As the wife was about to drop with the third and the focus was un-reliable and backseat to small we were looking at a Scenic. How stupid i was to look at them on a 04 - 08 plate.
We turned around and on the off chance we found my new beaut.

She initially hated the idea of the Mk2, she favored the Mk3. Got to be a women thing.  However now she loves it. Doesnt like my tinkering, but love the car.
I like being high up makes people move over.

Thanks johnnyroper

Ok so installing the double DIN like yours is out of the question unless i install the sharan facia.
Could easily be done, but i quite like the silver as it goes with the dash.

That such a shame, ill have to stick with the stereo i've seen.

Yes you would need to change the facia aswell to have the double din unless you're can be modified?

Like you I got a good deal on my 02 tdi ghia,bought knowing it needed head gasket but had full mot and generally good condition. Had to do a few jobs on it some needed others me just being fussy. Paid 600 for it got sick of chucking money at newer cars and losing out when changing.

From the measurements i can just about fit the stereo i'm looking at.
Worst case ill need to trim the hidden trim as in the reference lib, however i think ill get away with it.

I'm only 25, did my test at 19 and been through the following in 6 years excluding motorbikes :D

1.1 205, 1.3 KA, 1.6 Focus Mk2, 1.4 206, 1.0 Polo, 2.0 Focus Mk1, 1.8 Carina, 2.8 Golf Mk4, 1.6 Focus Mk1, 1.8 Focus Mk1, 2.3 Galaxy Mk2 (Current)
Its save to say my wife rolls her eyes everytime i mention anything about a car

Wow 600 for TDi. How much was the headgasket?
Actually dare i ask? I was offer from someone at work a 51 plate TDi Ghia for 200 incase i wanted the parts (didnt have the cash as i had just brought the 2.3) all it needed was a new alloy and the head doing.

I have a feeling im gunna kick myself on your next reply  :'(

I love the idea of having a brand new car

I don't like the fact you loose so much once you purchased it brand new.

Also i find that the price of second hand cars are always falling, good for me but a pain when you want to sell.

A company car would be nice, however i got more chance of winning the lotto

That looks like my car history when I was younger used to change cars very regular. Now I am an old fart (40) not quite so much.

For head gasket set,bolts,belt kit and pump also injector seals,bolts and camshaft bolts stands me about 300 in parts did the job myself. All good now so only in for about 900 total for car.

Wow,

I'd be very sore about that.

Never been keen on shitrons if im completely honest.

I would quite class 40 as being an old fart  ;D 60's maybe


Wow, i new i would kick myself. Would have been 500 plus maybe 100 for a alloy.



I'm glade its not just me. I found many cars apart from the Golf was boring so liked to upgrade when i could. Normally they died so it was a perfect excuse.

I wish i had fixed the golf. Mint 2.8 V6 4Motion 200BHP all standard except the stereo.
I do have the feeling though if i kept it i would of lost my licence.

I certainly enjoy driving the galaxy. I was going to get a CMAX but decided to get it. deffo the best choice ive made

Does running around in the TDi not cause problems?
I heard somewhere one of the filters is no good for popping around. Or am i thinking of a diff car?

Are you thinking about sticky EGR valves or the VNT turbo mechanisms (prone to clogging up with carbon and not working properly) if the car gets used mostly around town?

Or maybe newer diesels with DPF's fitted?

Yes on a diesel they are prone to clogging egr and vnt due to build up of oily gunge.
Egr problem solved as I fitted allard egr delete as a result got rid of the egr cooler also.
The vnt has stuck once which I mr muscled until I get time to strip properly,to prevent it re occurring I drive it hard when I use it and use vcds to run basic settings group 11 to cycle it through full travel.

Ok im going to sound like a n00b now

What on earth is a allard egr delete and a egr cooler?

When i upgrade to a TDi next year for the first year or so ill be doing 40+ motorway miles a day. However the after that i will be treating myself to a superbike :)
The wife will then use this car to do school units 3+ miles a day. maybe the odd weekend trips and wales (250ish miles) once a year.

Is this likely to be a problem? If so it might be worth while me sticking with the 2.3 right?

The allard is a straight pipe that does away with egr and the problems they cause,can also get rid of all vac pipes except for turbo.
One of these

http://www.allardaluminiumproducts.co.uk/air-systems/egr-delete-kits/egr-delete-56.html

The cooler is just a aluminium block thing that exhaust gasses pass through from manifold to egr valve it has coolant flowing through to cool gassed. Prone to failing so coolant goes in egr circuit

40 miles motorway a day plenty to keep running ok,even when Mrs has it so long as you give it a blast weekly all should be ok

Ah brilliant.

Once i get my superbike then, i give it a good running on the weekend. Typically we do 20+ miles on a weekend anyway going for walks etc.

Once i purchased it i will certainly be back for advise on how to do this and relevant parts

Should be in about 18 months. Gotta move firsts

No problem I have had my gal stripped down a fair bit,biggest job was heater matrix had slight leak on it. Massive job for a 20 part!
Engine wise I find them to be fairly easy.
I am doing injector seals again after holiday as I damaged an o ring putting in as didn't use the tool.
Will take pics and do a write up on it.

Don't know about that sure insanitybeard or mirez will be able to answer that?

Fingers crossed you just need a gas on air con from lack of use over winter.

If it's colder than Eco then it has gas in system,probably just needs a good vac out and recharge to get fully working.

I will have a ply around with my vcds when get chance see if I can do the locks

Cheers thats most appriciated.
Apparently its the following

03 set to 1 = doors lock after x mph
04 set to 1 = doors unlock on ignition is off and key removed

Oh i like the sound of that. Hope that is the case
