have you had a look in the settings mate? you can set them to avoid motor ways or avoid B roads and stuff like that. maybe the previous owner set it up funny. if you do decide to sell drop me a pm, i may be interested
Having lived in Gib it is almost impossible to get lost here...but like Spain is quite big and it has come very very useful at times....best feature about it for me is things like restaurants, hotels, etc it displays their full adress and telephone number...DSGlee said:Do you really need a sat nav in Gib, or do you have other uses for it?
I have been thinking about this one for a couple of months now and just put my deposit down today on the Alpine set up and having it fitted on Friday by LM Audio (Check the spomnsor section on this forum or send Lee a PM) I was going for the Pioneer but heard that the Nav unit is much better on the Alpine. The seperate Nav unit sits hidden away and is straight forward once you have spokeen to Lee and he's explained it. Slightly cheaper than the Pioneer and Kenwood too. I also belive there are others on here who have also opted for the Alpine, pomme being one of them.jambo said:Has anyone actually managed to find a location using the VW sat nav? Currently got one installed in my new R32. Picked it up from the dealers last friday and thought i'd try it out on the way home - for a normal 10 mile journey the nav thought i'd be better going down the M6 for a nice run and then cut back up a dual carriageway back to my house all in all a 25 mile journey (hmm is this some special trick to allow you to exploit the full power of the R32 on fast roads ). Any way tried to live with it for a week but have decided it needs to come out and be replaced with a nice shiny aftermarket unit. Currently undecided between Pioneer Avic D3, Kenwood 7200 or maybe even an Alpine set up but the Alpine becomes a bit more complicated as the Nav unit is seperate from the screen. Any one got any experiences on any of the above ? All advice greatly appreciated !
How well does the phone work through the touch screen? I don't want to rip the Parrot out if it's not as good. Have you got yours all working through the S wheel too?EdHoskins said:I have the Alpine W202R with the add on nav, bluetooth etc.
So yea, run everything off the head unit.
