New Dvd Satnav Unit Fitted (Pics)

I couldn't ditch DAB out of mine, but otherwise I'd be all over this. DAB is a bit niche though so I can't see it appearing on anything like this any time soon :(

Hey sorry not been round much i agree with jay yer you lose little sound quality but you gain in other stuff satnav is great if little arkward to use untill get used to it. I fitted optional reverse camera and digital freeview and I used them both loads.

Gregg have look in the instructions you have to put the pictures on the satnav sd card a certain way but am sure I've seen it in the book.

Hmm, I think I might invest in one of these then. I have just the standard Ford Unit but with Bluetooth and Voice control. Do these still work with this unit or not? Does it use the car mic or have one built it?

The unit has its own built in mic and Bluetooth I dunno if the steering controls will still work for the Bluetooth as I don't have it in mine.

I bought a unit at Xmas that looks pretty much the same with the same level of functionality from www.erisin.com - they have a UK warehouse and my unit arrived the next day (ES789F). Bought the rear camera unit seperately, has guidelines to help park and doesn't have the fisheye view that some do.

What's the Bluetooth quality like, does it use the car mic? Also what's the freeview like, do you have to keep retuning? As you can pickup digital radio with that can't you?

The quality ain't to bad for Bluetooth. I bought seperate freeview box and used the aux in on the back of the unit.

Good stuff, can you post me the link to the freeview unit you bought.

With the Bluetooth in relation to the factory standard how does it compare out of 10, this the only thing that may put me off as I use the phone so much in the car for my job.

I bought mine on the 5th Feb, they shipped it on the 6th and I received it on 11th feb.

Its a very good unit, pleased with it so far.

The sat nav is very good, little complicated to begin with and I am still trying to suss out how to change the car cursor (its set as a red mini cooper at the minute which is not good when driving a black focus...lol) but all in all a good bit of kit.

Its nice to have an ipod charging with direct control from my head unit at long last. Also has bluetooth music streaming.

Did you go for the camera as well?

If you need any help with fitting etc (as the install instructions are a little brief and not perfect english) give us a shout as I installed mine at the weekend.

Hey liam, no not yet, only local roads, that sounds good will have to have trip around the 25 then!,

I'm impressed with the unit so far and the fact that it looks factory fitted. Not sure about the camera yet will maybe look into it, does the focus canbus send a signal when reverse gear is selected as the screen goes blank on mine when reversing.
