Hi Truckster,
Great idea to go to a club, had thought off joining a Nissan Patrol owners club so I will go on Wednesday night.
I hope someone there has a Barrett as I am running out of time, will you be going?

Hope to catch up ,,GrahamDOING IT! LOVING IT!

Graham

I have been looking at these units and getting all sorts of stuff to help me understand the difference between these and the 550s.

I have a flash file I downloaded from somewhere (sorry cant remember where now) that explains all the buttons on the front panel. It's a tad over 3Mb in size, but if you have a reasonable connection I can email it to you if you like.

Just drop me your email address.

Wayne

Thanks Wayne, any info, and the more of it the better, all helps.

I could not get the thing to work yesterday but discovered the had left a part out of the packing at the factory. Had to drive back to Melb today to pick it up and now the radio seems to work fine.

I bought the 950 for the small amount extra because it had so much more int he way of features.
Total cost was $3000.oo and I installed it in about 5 hrs. piece of cake.
Anyway would love to see what you have on the 950 so my e-mail add' is....
