Infotainment Replacement

Post by NISMOnator » 12 Jul 2016 13:06

Hi Almal,

I am considering replacing my Kenwood DVD infotainment system with Garmin Nav. The system was already in the vehicle when purchased. It has been alright, but looking at something a bit more fresh with IPOD/USB compatibility and new Nav system with Bluetooth connectivity. Maybe reverse camera option?

I am not a millionaire and looking for an cost effective upgrade, best value for money.

What options should I consider?
What is the experience out there?

Thanks

Happy Patrolling

I see you are in Pretoria....

Check out Zambesi / Montanas Traders Market. / c/o Zambesi & Enkeldoorn.

There are a number of different traders which are selling variouse systems ranging between ~ 2000 - 3500 R

The last system which I bought is a Olympus double din DVD / Nav / + Rev. camera.

I paid 2500 R for the unit + camera (shop No C140) and an additional 300 R for the installation (April this year).

The GPS system is IGO.

So far I do not have any complaints with this unit.

Happy hunting :thumbup:
