I realize this is off topic, though the original topic appears solved, but why are people fitting secondary GPS speedos? They are not legal as a primary, so it's not a replacement for the original (I spent a small fortune getting the electronic speedo and signal generator for the Dolomega to MAKE it legal)
So what's the point? Original speedo erratic/inaccurate? That's never bothered me, a quick ride out with the satnav to quantify the error and I remember it! Can't think of another reason! I have enough trouble keeping up with one speedo, let alone having 2 telling me different things!
Another thing, for an electronics philistine, whats the gig with DAB? In fact what IS DAB? It seems to be a load of expense and bother, for what exactly? Explanation at a 5 year old level please! I have to admit, I rarely listen to the radio, the Carledo doesn't even HAVE one, let alone a posh one. On shorter journeys I prefer the "straight through orchestra" anyway and on longer journeys the local nature of FM means regular retuning, a CD stacker or memory stick is easier (no adverts either)
But i've bought a very flashy unit for the Dolomega (though I don't THINK it's DAB) which does just about everything but change your nappies, its got touch screen, Sat-nav, bluetooth, a built in hard drive, wi-fi, reversing camera, hands free, voice activated phone, Video player and probably more that I haven't worked out yet. Pretty sure it does the traffic report update thingy that I can't remember the acronym for too. And THREE ariels! (Radio, GPS and Wi-fi) I'm a little disappointed that I can't seem to connect it to my Pioneer CD stacker, but it's got 3 USB sockets and an SD card holder so don't think i'll go short of tunes!The radio is probably the least of my worries, but i've selected a swanky chromey roof arial (as much for aesthetic reasons as anything else) I guess it will work OK with FM. Back in the old days when radio was a big thing, transistors replaced valves and FM was in it's infancy, a roof ariel was reckoned to be best because it was never in "shadow" from the roof. But they were stonkingly expensive due mainly to high fitting cost of removing part of the headlining and routing the co-ax. Nowadays they are making a comeback, but as OE only and mainly as "bee-sting" or "sharkfin" which to me look out of character. It took me ages to find my old fashioned looking one, wasn't cheap either at almost £30 with carriage! But allegedly UK made, and to my mind, it looks the mutts nuts!
