Car Sat Navs with AV in?

Are there any budget car Sat Navs that anyone has experience of that have a AV in so that you can plug in a camera?

Are these any good?

I've got one of these fitted in my LWB Transit. You can have the satnav running on screen and then as soon as you select reverse gear, it switches to the camera view. The picture is really good in daylight but the infra-red night picture is a bit poor. The satnav works well, it has a music player, video player, bluetooth and games. Quite a bargain for 75 incl. postage.

No, the navigation isn't as good as a Tomtom, but considering all the other features you get, you'd probably have to buy the top of the range Tomtom 940 at 360 to match it and you still wouldn't get the AV input. The unit is also nice and slim (only about 1/2inch deep) whereas the Tomtom is quite chunky.

So you bought it from the ebay seller in the link then?

Might well be ordering one very soon

Yeh looks OK for the price, but I guess you'd have to download the UK maps for it to be any use over here, the other slight negative is the lack of a camera, which would have to be bought seperatly.
