    buying a twintop - advice & sat nav option

    Hi, I am looking to buy a twintop, ideally the 1.9cdti design or exclusive, and looking for a vehicle less than a year old

    Be grateful of any tips or things to look out for and be wary of

    I have recently always had a built in sat nav/phone kit but this is quite hard to find in used twintops.

    Interested in peoples opinion on the system, is it worth it or should I just buy a portable unit. My concern with a portable unit is where it would go and how easy could it be grabbed from the car when the roof is down?

    Thanks for reading

    Andy

    The CD70 is just too expensive for what it can do IMO. It looks very smart, that's true, but it's just not worth over £1k. It can't even do full postcode search, a £100 tom-tom can do that!!

    They do come up on ebay from time to time, usually get £500 or thereabouts, as a pair with the screen

    i agree with it being too expensive, but in a year old vehicle the difference in the price is not great, just hard to find as not many people have it fitted at that price, will look on ebay, thanks for the info
