I personally like the Garmin on the dash. Looking down at the GPS, even a few inches, takes away from your peripheral vision (eyes off the road) especially while fiddling to enter address or way-point. I prefer old trustworthy....Garmin on the dash.
Please take into consideration that I am not a huge sound person so standard radio for me is fine. I switch the thing off when I am in the bush anyway.
Just don't buy a cheap built in Nav unit. Brightness and contrast on these built in jobbies are also lacking. Friend had a ma-fonkong in his Cruiser and was horrible. He replaced it with a Kenwood and for me personally the Kenwood is not much better....at odd R9k
Why not consider a decent unit with built in Bluetooth and USB or other connectivity for wireless music. The navigation option seems to make them expensive. Then use a Garmin or Tom Tom for Nav? Best of both?
They delivered via DHL in 7 days, it was a plug and play procedure 30min before we went away for a week.
I have also ordered the reverse camera and the front DVR camera, but all the other functions work and perform as described.
GPS on memory stick is Igo and works perfectly, also has Google maps installed and with a small phone always on in the sunglass console as hotspot it performs 100%.
The nice thing is it doesn't look aftermarket as it's made for the Prado.
Total cost including import tax was <R6,000
