I bought a refurb unit from Sean and what an impressive piece of kit it is. I'd a slight problem finding the ISO plug so e mailed Sean and I'd a reply within minutes. Absolutely fantastic service. I'll definitely buy another one for my 260

I paid £275 for it Poppy, it's a bloody bargain. It plays music from my i phone, hands free and it paired with i phone no problem. It's got DVD played SD card, mini USB with adaptor cable, reverse camera and sat nav. It's an amazing piece of kit. I e mailed Sean because I couldn't get sat nav to work and I mentioned the camera was for a saloon and within minutes on a Saturday night I'd an e mail explaining what to do along with a link to a video on how to set up the sat nav which works perfectly plus he's swapping the saloon camera for a tourer one. Bloody amazing service :-)

true, but it is well documented that they do have reception issues, BUT, if you can live with that, they are good units. I had two, then went for the Dynavin, what you need now is walnut coverings for the stereo etc

Is this the iso connector that makes the steering wheel controls work too...... if so, i have one, but it was bought for a Rover 25..... :? Wonder if the pins are the same... (shrug)

The one you have posted is made by a company called Dynavin which is a branded product, the one Les has is simply made in China (as is Dynavin) and is unbranded

I am currently uploading a clip of mine, you will see the difference between the D95 and D99.

Les's unit is a great unit, tho, as said to Les, there are issues with the radio reception, if money is not the issue, then the Dynavin is the ultimate unit, but then the standard DD is not cheap by any means

Are there any other units that fit the R75 apart from Chinese? You know, in the UK? My concern would be that if anything went wrong, a slow boat to China would not seem ideal :? (shrug) (panic)

Something like what you and Les have in a nutshell......... But in all honesty, I think I would prefer something UK Based in case of problems. The link that you have shown lloks nice, but I don't know anything about Ice..... :?

I think the only way to go is through Sean or purchase a used one really, there is nothing that comes from the UK,

The best way really Poppy is as bbm says, save your pennies and buy a refurbished unit from Sean. He also does easy payments on a new one I think
