I've tried searching on the forum and on youtube to no avail so far.

Thanks
Doogs.
They can def be 'trying'. FWIW I too have a Legend but in all truth cannot recommend one if you want safe navigation, reasonable radio or reliable reversing cameras.
Spending the same money again I'd choose Kenwood and a double din adapter. If you after conversion cables I have some I never used.
Re the double din adapter, make sure you get it pained to suit your console's colour. Most are dark grey and nowhere near the original - and I'm colour blind!!! That was something the Legend gets abs spot on!
