Re: "Kitchen Sink" GPS review


The VMS unit plugs in direct they have an adaptor cable from the unit. The Brash Imports terminates in ISO connectors but uses the exact same cable as the VMS so I can get the vehicle specific cable from the local VMS distributor however I found an adapter KRAM ISO2CAR Cable for Nissan & Subaru from [sign in to see URL] a better option. The Dig_Options terminated in pre 2007 Nissan connectors

Is there anything that you can buy off the shelf to do this?

Re: "Kitchen Sink" GPS review


Good review Alan

I had my Kenwood unit installed by Audiocom when I took delivery inAug last year.

I am happy enough with the inbuilt Garmin GPS, iPod integration but the Bluetooth connectivity with my HTC Windows based mobile phone is woeful. Reversing camera is menu recognised as well so if I do a battery disconnect or soft reset I have to flick through menus to re-enable the function.

I think the VMS option is one I should have investigated before purchasing the Kenwood as it has far better offroad mapping capability. I have seen it installed in a friend's Kia Sorento and it works well particularly in remote locations.

I lost some functionality of my LHS steering control (volume) as well.

Re: "Kitchen Sink" GPS review


Hi Guys,

I was wanting some reviews on the Touring 430/500 Portable GPS's. I was directed to use this thread. Has anyone got one of these units or had any experience with them?

Thanks

Re: "Kitchen Sink" GPS review


The Touring series are pretty much the same as the VMS in dash unit in terms of the GPS and reversing camera side of things. One thing I did find quite annoying whilst I have been away is the daily need to reset the VMS unit when it locks up due to our holiday accommodation not being "on the maps". I'll update you with the response from VMS, it will probably be "thats a new one on us" as per usual. I would never spend the amount VMS demands on a GPS if another unit fitted in the Navara. Phillipa's chap Chinese copy (out of the same factory) works just as well and the extras that VMS "gives" you are not worth the extra cost in my opinion.
