    Yeah defiantly.

    Looks cool having a pretty map but at the end of the day all you need is it to show/tell you to turn.

    The colour screen displays the map on the screen whereas the mono display just diplays arrows I believe. Also the colour screen is slightly bigger than the mono display. Prices seem to range from £350 to £500, but make sure you get one that has a matching screen and headunit. If the screen and headunit are from different cars, you'll have issues with them working together

    tbh i am not sure if the satnav will work on a GID (non colour screen) as the CD70 headunit delivers the maps to the screen via an RGB cable that i think only plugs into the back of a CID (colour display). I imagine the unit on offer has a colour screen..

    EDIT: i see Ademusic has some ideas about how it may work with a GID

    I believe the satnav will work with a mono screen, just without displaying maps, and only showing direction arrows. There is a setup on the bay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-sat-n...item41527dabe6 which has a cd70 and a mono screen

    thats what i was worried about looking at the picture he has sent me the screen looks smaller as you can see the black plastic around the screen like my cd30 screen. im pretty sure the colour screen takes up the whole gap with no plastic outing if you understand what i mean
