Aloha,
I just got back from the breakers with a radio, dsp, climate control, and a Gps head unit. A good haul.
The radio is from an 02, and is for a mate in Hawaii.
I have the vin from the donor car, so what is the best way to get the code?
I seem to recall a thread about this on .net, but cannot find it now.
Cheers!

I think you need to give the code to a LR dealer. Hopefully they won't worry that you aren't the vehicle owner.

Sorry, not the code, the VIN.

I just asked my local dealer's part department. Gave him the VIN and he gave me the code.

Thanks for the quick responses!
It turns out an old parts guy here that used to help me with parts for my Austin Champ back in the 70's is now the regional parts guru for land rover.
I will ring him in the ,morning. I am sure he would trust me with the secret code for this valuable piece of technology (wink)

Aloha Gents,
I rang the parts guys and they were happy to look it up for me.
Turns out the code was set to "0000" thus, no code needed. Cool eh?
Tested good, so it's off to Hawaii. Sat nav works as well, so it will go into Borrego to make it complete and stock.
Odd point....New satnav has a female voice and defaults to German language randomly on power up....
I thought "James" was always a male voice unless he went "Rainbow" on us?
Climate control was toast, and I have not had the time to test the DSP amp yet. Still a good day at the breakers!
