Car Sat Nav

Quick question,

would a sat nav unit from a VW car (looks like a single DIN unit!) fit a renault modus (which is a single din unit). Any1 know if theres any problem wiring the sat nav unit, or is it just a case of getting a convertor if needed....

In all honesty, your best bet would be to buy an aftermarket sat-nav system and hang it off your windscreen.

Yes, factory fitted items look the part, but to try and retro-fit a Renault system is a nightmare on its own, let alone trying to fit one from another company.

Tomtom units are pretty good because they are 'future-proof', you can update them with your computer as and when new software is released. They also have a very good aerial and can recieve satellite signals through athermic glass.

Yes I wouldn't bother trying to fit a genuine sat nav either, I have a Tomtom and would personally recommend it and as already mentioned is future proof, some addons and updates are a little expensive though, and it's only the latest like the GO700 & GO900 that can receive the signal through reflective screens, I have the GO300 and it does have trouble sometimes in my Lag, but should be ok with an external aerial.
