Why should I install a car computer?

  • You decide exactly what features you install.
  • You decide how you want it to look.
  • It costs you much less than the factory fitted option, which may only be available on top of the range cars.
  • Instead of a load of individual gadgets, you control everything through your car computer. Most of the applications you can run on a PC are better than any individual item of equipment you will buy.
  • You can take advantage of software updates to ensure you stay at the leading edge of technology, very often at no cost.

  • Keep the kids entertained on longer journeys by running movies.
