Who made the first head unit ever?

Motorola, I believe. -- Mikeblas 23:45, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

When were ISO connector's standard on car harness's? I haven't seen one on a car but then I've only worked on cars from 96 or older.Falcon5nz (talk) 09:54, 10 October 2009 (UTC)

In the USA, the only vehicles that use ISO connectors are heavy-duty trucks (ie, Peterbilts/Freightliners) and European vehicles. Most all aftermarket headunits in the USA (other than those sold for the heavy-duty truck market) do not use ISO connectors; the notable exception is Blaupunkt. (talk) 02:17, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Head units was a description for the face piece of a receiver that had 2 parts. The head unit was the facia on the dash and the rest of the unit was the receiver placed elsewhere in the vehicle. It is commonly used with 2-way radios. Why they changed the name from stereo to head unit is beyond me. There was no valid excuse for changing the name. A head unit is the head of another component. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:29, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
