Thank you, you will be able to buy one direct from us, but not untill the CE stuff is all done, and like all good things it won't be cheap but we believe fantastically good value for money! Probably not in a position to do you much of a part ex but it depends on the price!

Lastly if you are getting a lifter use it in the car park only if you have no experience of them, and go and see Neil Holmes and get some tuition on driving race / high performance boats.

Hope that helps,
GULP!!!!

Does the GPS feed data to the colour smartcraft unit to enable the driver to navigate? e.g. course to steer, compass, rolling road etc. Otherwise how do you see the GPS info at speed if its in front of the passenger?

Very stylish though!
