#544665 New Dvd Satnav Unit Fitted (Pics)

Posted by Incontro on Today, 04:15 PM

Cheers scorpionsx. I noticed the two options of camera and mine is the facelift one with no screws to insert. Thanks for the help. I'll just order with the stereo. Update when fitted boys


Just a tip:


If you are definitely going to want a reverse camera sooner or later, I highly recommend you order one now, and install the stereo and camera all in one go, it will save you a lot of hassle. Reason being the wiring loom for the stereo can be tricky to tuck into the dash, so you will have to wrestle with the wiring twice if you install them separately.

Hi Gareth,


Yes my unit still works perfectly (knock-wood). I have had lots of comments from coworkers, friends, family, and also mechanics who have noticed it. Makes long drives 10x more pleasurable.


I ordered mine without the reverse camera. It would be nice to have it, but it was not essential for me at the time I ordered it.

Nick, the unit I have only ever works in position II, so battery drain isn't an issue in my case.


Also last summer I left my car unattended for a whole month in my garage (I went overseas), with the unit installed and battery left connected, and the car started up with no troubles after I arrived back.

Things I don't like - going to visit my parents and finding out there's a power outage in the neighbourhood.

Things I don't like - the death of Diesel - the police-dog that was killed in the line of duty in the Paris raids today. RIP buddy.  :(

Called them back, and argued my case. Seems there was some misunderstanding - I told them that the bulbs are fully road legal, and do not exceed the original manufacturer power specification (5W). They said as long as these two conditions are met, it should be fine.


Win. :)

Things I don't like (in fact HATE):


When your insurer refuses to cover you on such a trivial modification - changing sidelight bulbs to LED.


How ridiculous.

Arriving to work in the morning, and grabbing the last available parking spot, in between two other Focii. :)

Good starting point - I'll report back once done. 

#540096 New York City - Holiday Photos

Stayed in the same hotel as you on my last trip to NY in 2013. Soo jealous, wish I was there right now!


It was a pretty decent hotel - it's location is what really counts though.

Can't believe Ford still use drums on such an expensive & large car in this day and age, a bit of a disgrace. 

#537750 What Do You Look For On A Mobile Phone.

I'd disagree with you there. My S6 is MILES better than my S3. It's better in every single way. The glass/non removable cover is fine for me too, i have a gel case on it, i drop it a lot and don't have a single mark yet. I'm really pleased with it as it is a big upgrade from the S3, something that can't really be said for the equivalent iPhone.


I have both the S6 (work phone), and G4. The G4 is better IMO - better battery life, removable battery, expandable storage, better camera (debatable though), and easier to grip despite it having a larger screen. The S6 is just a rip-off iPhone design - the glass/metal design is slippery and annoying.


With all this said, I'd rather go back to the days where we had dumb-phones, and talked face to face more often, and spent less time glued to our screens. I probably sound like an old !Removed! saying this, but hey :)

Very nice, wonder what engine it'll have.

3.0L (V6) EcoBoost?

Sorry to hear about your parents Stoney, I hope they all turn out OK without any injuries. Perfect end result though, the tradies were a godsend it seems.

Add another one to the 'no Facebookers' club. Just don't get people's obsession with it. Sorry OP, but I hate FB with a passion.
