Gday all,

Anyone installed one of these new Polaris units, I realise there is a lot of negative feedback in the past but wondering If they have gotten any better.
Not really Interested in Brash or Dig ones.
Any feed back appreciated

Cheers

I have just had one installed in my D40 Navara. like you i was a bit hesitant after hearing bad feedback. The new unit is a marked improvement on the old ones and the street mapping is as good if not better than the Navman I was using.
The Bluetooth is good and works well with my i-phone4s.
The radio is probably not as good as the original as we are on the outskirts of Sydney it does loose the stations a bit.
The sound using i-pod is great.
We will test the off road mapping this weekend and I will post a result on Tuesday.
Overall I have been pretty happy with the unit as a whole, it is a lot quicker and more efficient than the older version that my mate has in his Patrol.
It fits neatly into the dash with no cutting or modifying and I can put the original stereo back in if I want.

Hope this helps
Steve

I was looking at the Polaris models but after talking to their staff, I decided against that product.
Have you had a look at OPAL - same idea, Aust. distributor and 3yr warrantee.
I believe they are about to be Hema compatable this month. I've just ordered one so can't say much more at this time.
I recieved a good price from : ron@gcspares.com (Offroad 4x4 Bathurst )
No vested interest, just good service.
Bruce.
