i discovered this on my daily visit to the site.

it appears that everyones favourite (or if it isnt, it should be) comms website has been updated with a new look, and a visible guarantee that they will not be beaten on price.

same great prices, few new colours, and a new logo, and more features, most notably the 'latest products' page, for those who want to know where technology is going.

i like it. well done to the team at prestige!

I have no idea if you are associated with them but if you are please tell them that the SSL encrypted pages do not load in SSL. The URL is a http and not https URL and the padlock does not appear on the Secure Order page. Regards

Oh just thought this post is not intended to be a critism just a feedback from a web developer. I would think it is just a URL problem and in no way is intended to cause any negatives. It should be a simple fix for the developer and should not stop you from using their service (based on your own judgement).Regards

tdcockers,

It is strange then that Prestige has not yet renewed the listing on ExplorOz and it will disappear at midnight. I guess they must have been busy with the site development.Regards

They would have to be able to come down a bit on some items. Garmin Metroguide is #40 dearer than I walked in and bought it at another company last week

Big DogSo much to do, so little time.

Hello to all,
I had a 3200 installed in my toyota at Prestige. The bloke that done it, screwed the screws into the hand piece so tight that it disintergrated on the first dirt road i went on. I wrote to the management to let them know, though i never got a reply. Will be going else where for future communications work.

i had previous good dealings with them, but then back on 1 jan i ordered some uhf aerials and accessories and while i was charged for them and delivery on my credit card i never received anything. after calling and not getting a response i went in (two months later) and very politely asked for a refund which i got - but no hint of an apology or anything - i couldnt believe it. will not be going back, regardless.

Reading through the last few posts, I wonder if they sold the business and whether it's now under "new management".

you might have a point

i was impressed, i emailed the webmaster address this morning, and received a reply inside an hour, despite the fact that it would have been 6:30 in the morning in perth.

my email to sales is unanswered after 2 1/2 days though :(
