Hi Rod
Just bought one delivered a couple of days ago. Reversing camera has a relatively short lead so I will need to patch a longer one on as getting from camera fitment position to reverse wiring is a bit further than they allow. Unit OK and running WindowsCE so I am getting OziExplorer and Hema maps on to it as well. I can give you a contact for this as it works out cheaper than buying from Oziexplorer itself...go figure.

When copying links from ebay you only need to copy upto the ampersand & after the item number.

eg for this one

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120368128745

Is all that is required to find the item.

Or you could use the Insert Link button and do it like this

Hi. My gps part works quite well. It is comparable with a Tom Tom 720 I have. Dont know how to download/upgrade as takenbyaliens has done so can't comment. The reversing camera is pretty good but gets a few noise lines in it. I have it set up in a ute so the transmitter is only a couple of meters away from the unit (although it is enclosed inside the vehicle body.) Not sure how it would be if it was much further away.Regards,Bob.

Gaday Rod. just doing my homework on those too. Reliability so far from others that have used them is very good with minimal drop out even on rough outback tracks. Check the specifications carefully as there are about 10 different models all using the same base system but different spec levels. Some only run for 10 minutes, others for 1 hour off the internal battery. Many don't have a plug for an external MMCX gps antenna. One model has twice the memory of others (128MB). Quality or choice of the reverse camera varies. Some offer multiple on road navigation maps.
The WINCE 4.2 system is not locked so allows the installation of the OziExplorer CE program & topo maps etc on the SD card making this a handy device for both a road navigator & offroad GPS not unlike the Hema unit. Unfortunately the resolution is a little poor but those using them say the large screen makes up for that & is quite acceptable.
Cheers Craig.........

The one being looked at has 1 hour on the battery and does have MMCX antenna input. Resolution OK and bearable...NO connection with seller!!!!

I had a wireless reversing camera on my van and it was useless.

If I held the camera in line of sight it would work 50 metres away. As soon as it went behind the van it kept dropping out and when moving it was just static.

Reason what blocks wireless best.
Answer a bloody big hunk of metal between camera and receiver

Buy a wired version and you will have no trouble.

Tried them all only wired is any good
