    Default Couple of questions (Satnav and phone)

    Hey all

    Just purchased a 2003 model 3.2 v6 Gsi on sunday.

    Like a fool i have only just tryed to use the satnav (the car is in imaculate condition so i assumed everything was in working order as the guy had told me)

    When i click Nav on the dash it asks me to insert disc... i insert disc but nothing happens. Or if it does it just spits it back out. Does this sound like the disc is at fault? scratched etc?

    As for the phone, i want to start using it but i dont understand how you insert the sim, should you have like a tray to place it in, to insert it? as the slit for it is huge for a sim card, or are they a different type of sim to a normal mobile?

    Ive always owned older cars or sports cars so im not up on all this technology lol

    any help greatly appreciated

    oh and whilst im here... any tips on where to get irmscher grills etc at a reasonable price? also i want to remap it but cant find anywhere that will do this model of the vectra why is this? i really want it remapped, as aside from the performance boost, the extra miles to the tank would be handy as they claim to give as its a rather thirsty car to what im used to hehe

    so far im loving the car glad to be part of the vectra club hehe

    Hi mate, the sat nav sounds faulty and im not sure how you use the phone.

    There isnt many places do a remap for the gsi as it needs the ECU removed and some minor work done to it instead of simply plugging in a laptop like other models. Also the gains on a remap are'nt great unless you want to fit a decent air filter and stainless exhaust system and even with those there wont be much performance difference, maybe 10-15bhp.

    Some sim cards snap out of a credit card size card. You just dont snap it out, just slide the whole thing in.

    What rushy said when you get a new sim card it comes in the size of a credit card you then normally have to push the small sim out,well you dont do this insert the full card with chip facing upwards into slot.
    IIRC only Vodafone,o2 and i think tesco mobile work

    Depends on what you call a reasonable price. Send me a PM as I might know of one if your still interested.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
