    Incorporating Blaupunkt Freestyler into my install - thoughts please!

    Am looking at a Blaupunkt freestyler Sat Nav h/u. fitted one a while back in my bosses' car and they look pretty good. What I am planning to do is to fit one in my 2nd DIN slot, hooking up to existing h/u & install thru phono leads. Don't want to bin my existing sony h/u as its a better unit and its all linked up to ipod & steering wheel remote...

    any thoughts? are they worth the money or do I get a standalone unit, or even a VDO unit?

    EDIT - found this on eGay:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...9846&rd=1&rd=1

    is it worth the £140?
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    Damn I really thought I answered this last night. sorry obviously not.

    Anyways as you already have a headunit I would go with a stand alone option. The Blau is okay and does the job but the lack of any real display is a massive downside that you will not have going for a stand alone setup. Calulating routes is not the best and lastly £ 140 for it second hand is steep as not so long ago I was offered a few of these brand new at £110. Need less to say I passed on the offer as I really do not like the those specific units very much.
