The Stinger HEIGH10 represents the biggest game-changer in in-car entertainment for the ‘Puma’ (2007-2016) Defender since the dashboard update introduced in 2007. The Stinger HEIGH10 is an all-in-one fascia/screen package that brings your Defender audio set-up into the modern world with a 10in interactive touch screen that’s located high up in the dashboard right where you want it. No more taking your eye off the road to look down at a Double DIN screen and stabbing at tiny function buttons. Large easy to read on-screen menu buttons and just four physical buttons for Home Screen, track forward/backward and Phone improve useability.One massive advantage of the Stinger HEIGH10 is unlike a typical Double DIN conversion there is no cutting of the dashboard ‘cheeks’ or extending of the wiring to relocate the factory switches. All of the factory switches remain within the HEIGH10 central fascia creating a much cleaner/neater/faster install.As you’d expect the HEIGH10 features Apple CarPlay (wired) and Android Auto (wired) connectivity where the much larger on-screen buttons provide a greater level of functionality and ease of use.The large tablet sized screen also means navigation apps are clearer and easier to use. Another advantage of the combination of smartphone connectivity and the large screen is you now have the ability to utilise off-road navigation apps like OnX and Gaia GPS where the larger screen of the HEIGH10 turns your head unit into a useful navigation tool for extended off-road adventures rather than you having rely upon a separate tablet or phone screen.Audiophile Approved Sound with all of the inputs you’ll ever need. The Heigh10 features a built-in amp (16w RMS x 4) and 6ch RCA outputs with subwoofer control. A 15-band graphic equaliser with 6 user pre-sets, Hi/Lo front rear crossover with 6 user presets and a Toslink (optical) audio output.The HEIGH10 kit also contains a Plug & Play OBD connection between the vehicle OBD port and the HEIGH10 unit to provides you with access to vehicle info not shown on the Defender main gauge cluster, eg Battery charge status, oil temperature etc.Other screens can display performance figures …And perhaps, more useful in a Defender, another screen can display off-road stats like pitch, roll and compass headings etc.The Stinger HEIGH10’s screen features a high-resolution, 10-inch capacitive touchscreen with 16.7 million colours for a full visual experience. Personalize your display via customizable RGB illumination that allows you to match the factory green illumination, or use whatever colour combo you prefer.
The HEIGH10 features a reverse camera input as well as three additional camera channels should wish to create all round system!The HEIGH10 Defender kit and mounting ensure a seamless and factory-like installation, giving your vehicle’s HEIGH10 display a professional and integrated look.Each kit is supplied with a Defender-specific harness to establish a direct and secure connection between your vehicle and the HEIGH10, ensuring compatibility and optimal performance. The interface offers enhanced control over your infotainment system, allowing you to manage camera triggers while showing advanced vehicle gauges easily via the Defender OBD connection.
The Heigh10 comes with a USB extension cable so you create a USB port somewhere within the dashboard to connect to Apple CarPlay or Android Auto (pictured above furthest right). If you'd rather use an existing blank switch hole (so you don't have to drill a hole somewhere in the dash) we offer a genuine style USB extension socket, as pictured below.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I buy the fascia plastic separately?
No the fascia can only be sold in conjunction with the HEIGH10 headunit.
Why is CarPlay and Android Auto only available through a wired connection?
The official line on this from Stinger is that wireless is very power hungry when you're using apps. In the US where journeys are typically longer than in Europe, the power draw of someone using a nav app and a music app at the same time means a wired connection makes more sense.
Is there a HEIGH10 kit available for earlier Defender models?
Not yet. Stinger are gauging interest.
Do I need a Puma Adaptor cable?
No. The HEIGH10 kit includes an ISO adaptor harness.
Do I need a DAB antenna?
No. The HEIGH10 kit includes a DAB antenna.
Will DAB+ radio work where I live?
Check DAB coverage in your area. There are some countries with no DAB network, e.g. USA & Ireland.
What happens to the air vents located either side of the clock on the original dashboard?
A trade-off for the larger screen is you lose the air vents (and the clock) on top of the exiting fascia. The HEIGH10 screen has a clock displayed in the corner of the screen whenever the unit is turned on and when we tested the prototype unit in 30+ temperatures in central Spain, there was no noticeable lack of air-con effectiveness.
I've already fitted a double DIN fascia to my Tdci Defender. What do I do with the side cheek panel which currently houses my relocated switches?
The beauty of the Heigh10 fascia is that you can re-position all your original switches back into the centre of the dash. That will then free up space in your aftermarket 'side cheek' panel to fit 6 additional switches (the hazard hole can be blanked off using our Hazard blank). We offer a range of genuine style switches, USB sockets and blanks which are all compatible with the Tdci switch holes, so you can fit them to the Heigh10 fascia or your now defunct switch relocation panel.
Can I install the Stinger Heigh10 myself?
Check out the video below which will guide you through the fitting process. Fitment does not require any specialist wiring skills, although as always we do recommend if you're in doubt you should seek out a specialist fitter.
