This is a great deal! Does anyone know if this will take TomTom though...even better if it does!
#4
It could have HD Satellite for all the good it will do! Without a good aerial signal, it is effectively JUST a basic Sat-nav with some unknown OS and an unknown Sat-nav program & mapping!

Now, work out how you are going to get that GOOD aerial signal in your car, AND connect it to the unit (what connectivity has it got other than a 3.5mm jack out for audio?) and you will find a cheap Navigo from eBuyer will at least do the better cheaper, as you CAN put TomTom on that!

It might be a good buy, but without some info, it doesn't appear to be :-(
The only reviews appear to be European:

the auto translations are TERRIBLE or non-existent; and don't answer any of the questions I have posed :-(

There is not much info or reviews about this kit, price is ok with freeview builtin but cant find any reviews about gps?? maybe its too new and hasn't been tested yet:?
Maybe the freeview is there so you can watch tv when your lost and waiting for gps signal to comeback?:thinking:
Or it maybe a really good piece of kit!!

Who Knows!!!!

How is it a good price with Freeview... can you actually USE it?

Not ONE portable or fixed Freeview device I have seen will get ANY picture at all without a PROPER aerial - this hasn't got one, and I don't even know how it can be connected to one, do you?

A friend could almost lean out of his window and touch Sutton Coldfield transmitter, yet it STILL requires a considerable aerial installation - NOTHING was receivable from the portable aerials that portable Freeview devices come with, NOTHING :-(

NOT, according to the review you show:
"Out of the box, neither model offers TMC or Bluetooth, but a TMC cradle and a combined TMC/Bluetooth cradle are both available as accessories."
#9
The video function automatically disables itself when the speed of the vehicle exceeds 7 kph


BAH!

Its can run most sat nav programs,

See link about a hack for this unit, ATMOS 2.3 AND CLOSEDone.

It runs Igo8 very well due to having 128mb ram fitted.
Tomtom runs Ok but a bit of lag.
Navigon 7 works very well.
I have a couple more sat nav programs on it but have not tested then yet.
I bought this system new for £70 off ebay ( private seller he won it in a competition,and no reserve so i got lucky ).
Freeview does not work near me, although i have not tried it with the 2 aerials you get for the car.
The sound is quite powerful with the inbuilt speaker for sat nav and MP3 playback.
The unit is very sturdy and well made ,the back is rubber coated and durable.
I have hacked the unit with the software on the link above.
Its much better than the navigo units that have been on here of late.

It is 3 times the price of one so I would hope so.

So it costs much more, has a TV receiver that won't receive TV, runs TomTom with a lag but is better than the £50 Navigo which runs TomTom perfectly - sorry I'm lost, please explain.

VDO are normally a rebrand for another brands internals in Oem style packaging, so best way to find out what the unit can do maybe to find what the internals are based on. Stefors pictured in car unit is based on a Clarion which is why it would of been expensive and high quality.. this unit could easily be based on something more expensive too.

And this is relevant in which way?

It is not similar to the original post, and it isn't overall cheap compared to others?

If it is a "Deal" then why not post it as one

I did not buy it for the TV anyway.
Igo8 runs perfect ,a lot better than Tomtom software IMO.
Navigon 7 also runs perfect.
Tomtom did not run good on my Navigo, it also lagged a bit.
And mine only cost £70 and for £20 more is a lot better than a tinny Navigo with **** build quality.
#19
I have digital tv in my car with a very strong aerial and still struggle to get decent reception anywhere around London without actually stopping! Problem is with digital tv its all or nothing whereas analog tv reception can fade a little and you'd still get a picture and sound.
Unless your planning to connect this to a 8 foot aerial pole from the sunroof i would forget the tv function!!!
#20
Seems like a great deal but its kinda let down by the prospect of lousy reception on the DVB-T and questionable mapping software. If you're planning on putting Tomtom on it then I don't think this is a great deal even if you did buy it at £70 :-D
#21
Just out of interest, I'm thinking of buying the VDO Dayton PN4000 - but does anybody know what price Amazon were selling these at before they went on at deal of the week? I don't now if it's worth waiting for my paycheck if they are only going to go up by another £10 when deal of the week has ended or whether to put it on my credit card now if it's going to go up by another £50 if anybody catches my drift?!
