HI Everyone,

So glad we found this forum, thanks everyone for all of your help.

After months and months of debate we just sold the Kluger and purchased a 4.8l 2003 Patrol - Love it - what a beast.

Looking to upgrade the stereo in the patrol and came across these on ebay has anyone esle has got one and if so are they any good.

We were looking at purchasing a Hema Navigator in the future however this already comes with a reverse camera and you can upgrade to oziexplorer and then load te Hema Maps onto it. So if this unit is any good then we might be able to save a few $$

Have a great weekend everyone -

G'day, have a 2004 Nissan Patrol and have not got one of these, but an older model and it is great, only one problem and that was reading the screen when I installed it flat, have now angled it towards the driver and a little out at the bottom and the screen is much easier to read. At the price, a good buy. My two cents worth. John

Cheers John thanks for the feedback

You always worry these days when you see something cheap you worry that its too good to be true

Have you loaded any of the Hema maps on there - if so was this easy to do?

Haven't loaded Hema maps, yet, just haven't gotten around to it.

Yes to the Dig_options Double Din GPS System

We have the very same GPS/everything else in our Pooootrol.
So far so good

Not hard to wire up either.
Cant wait to get a full version of Ozi Explorer, with all the maps on board.
The screen seems a little dull at times, but I recon it's the fact that it sits out, and reflects everything back into your face.

Igo8 street navigation is petty dam good.
Just hope the Corrugation do not kill this one

Cheers
Bucky
