Its a version "D", G is a better version if you are looking and what disc was it? 2003/2004 (without TMC) as 2005 is now out on the streets with TMC which if you trust ebay can be picked up for ?90, its ?155 from navtech. the earlier disc is OK if you dont mind driving through a field occasionally when there was a field there, but now has a nice bit of tarmac.

If they are asking for your six in dash changer AND gamma then thats not to good, you may need that to refit if you decided to change car and fit it back in. again find out what disc they are offering.

Went through the trials and tribulastions of DIY fit and have it done, pain ?925 for version G, TMC, 2005 disc and still got my own stuff radio and CD. Might seem high to you, but got a years guarentee and peace of mind.

Top service, top bloke and everything is in A1 condition!!!

Do the right thing mate!!
Thats where I got mine from, also got a new disc off Ebay for ?60 as I live by the M6 Toll and was driving through a lot of fields before!!

Let me know if anyone is interested in it.

What was the seller's name that you got the CD off then mate? I could do with that as it doesn't recognise some of the roads aroun where I live at the moment.

I paid by Bidpay and I am sure that everyone else did, you basically sign up to it and then pay via your credit card, it then pays Symon in American Dollars.

In total it cost me around ?425 delivered and took 2 days to clear the Bidpay transaction and then 2-3 days to get the unit delivered.

Nice and easy, very happy with the unit and the transaction.

cool

what year is the CD? 2005?

I take it he will send me a UK cd.

Also what does the screen do when you play a cd in the unit? Does it run any type of screen saver?

I got the 2004 UK CD so I need to get the newer one now, ANYONE HELP ME ON THAT?!?!?!?

He sends you a CD for the UK, Poland, Germany and France. Not too sure I will need the Poland one though, LOL!!

When your playing a CD the screen doesn't have a screen saver, not as far as I am aware!!?!??

The screen displays the track, the time, the CD and that's about it? Although you can obviously use the navigation system while listening to music.

I believe that the amp is better on the Sat Nav as I seem to have more bass? I also believe that the G version has a better amp than the D but I am not too sure if that is true? I have read mixed reviews?!?!

cool

I'll get one on order i think

Can you change the voice prompts? e.g male or female.

Does the voice prompt come in and out when listening to music ?

Can i listen to the radio and have the sat nav cd in and run sat nav when listening to the radio because i dont have a cd changer as yet
