Retro Fit Satnav

Post by ThomasMark » Tue May 17, 2011 11:50 am

Hi all.
I was wondering if anyone knew a good way of retro fitting a sav nav? I'd most likely be using a TomTom XL LIVE IQ or similar..

Cheers
Tom

Got to 1addicts and search TomTom, one guy has done a cracking job of fitting it in the dash storage compartment so it pops up when opened.

Thats a great idea, and i like the fact that its hidden when not in use. Unfortuantly I dont have the compartment on the dash :(
