    Default Looking to upgrade

    I want to upgrade my standard car radio. I fancy a sat nav kind, I would even like to have a standard sat nav system if it's easy enough to fit. My car is a 2004 Sri T, it's the half cambus type. What would you recommend. Cheers

    Depends entirely on your budget Mark. Personally I can't sing the praises of my Alpine unit highly enough, but the unit and the satnav for it will cost you close on a grand.

    A lot of people seem to be going for those far east imports and are giving good reports on those, but as I say, it all depends on your budget.

    If you want a decent system, go aftermarket. There are plenty of decent dvd / sat nav radios available from most good audio / ICE shops.

    If you want OEM, then your options are NCDC2013 - the most common sat nav
    or the less common NCDC2015 (with telphone connectivity).

    There is a How 2 for retro-fitting this to your car.
    Just look in the how 2 section.

    There is one that is available from Hong Kong for about 600 dollars...it is a DVD, touch screen jobby...but I can't put my hand on the details at this tiime.

    A good quality NCDC2013 and CID screen will be quite expensive 200 to 300 quid.
