hey guys/girls recently bought a dvd satnav unit off ebay was a no name make so i was bit unsure but i thought oh well comes with 1 year warrenty.

so this is the unit i bought it replaces the old unit with no need for any adaptors and comes with canbus so you can still use all the steering wheel controls
Posted Image

so features are

*satnav, dvd, bluetooth, aux input, rear camera input, 3g capable and front mounted micro sd card slot (free 4gb card as well)

so this was my old unit
Posted Image

And how the dash looks now
Posted Image

rear view camera is a real help and very clear on the screen
Posted Image

bluetooth is very easy to use and you can download your phonebook in to it
Posted Image

satnav is very good a little complicated but am used to a tomtom but overall very good
Posted Image

Am really happy with the unit i would give it 8/10 the only little thing ive found is the screen flickers slighty when it first comes on after its been off for a while but after 30 secs or so it stops so am not to fussed Posted Image

Any comments welcome.

Looks neat mate :)

How is the sound quality compared with the Sony unit? Is there any chance of a night time pic to show the colour of the buttons??

Is the reverse camera one that replaces the numberplate light??

I am defo considering getting one of these, looks really smart.

Looks great! I've contemplated something like this in the past but for the Mk2 pre-facelift, like the one in the link below, to keep it as OEM looking as possible. Reckon selling my Sony and Parrot handsfree kit would probably get a decent bit of the price back too.

Looks very nice indeed.

Couple of questions, if you don't mind:

* does it have a rear USB for connecting an iPod, and having the iPod hidden in the glovebox?

* does it have DAB for things like 6 Music?

* what's the sat nav like for searching postcodes and points of interest etc?

Thanks.
