Right guys, I have had this in my office for some time so I thought I would fit it in the Siggy to take pictures then sell it.
The unit is fitted to the dash via a non-drill mounting bracket with the GPS module being fitted in the far left of the dash under the tax disc with the cable fed via the dash behind the glove box.
Power is fed from the lighter socket however it can be hard wired if you choose.
It is running tom tom sofware and the usual pocket pc software.
I dont have the active syn cd(can be downloaded via microsoft)
The battery does not last long when not in the craddle(new battery approx £25)
It comes with, main unit, car cradle, tomtom wired gps reciever, pc usb cable, car supply lead, carry case. All as attached photo.
I would prefer to sell to someone in the North West, however alternative arrangements can be made.
I want £35 for the little beast!
