upgrade from the 520vbt
stanley catchpole on 19/12/2019 5 star rating

visited the Nottingham store as i had issues with my camper van navigation unit keep freezing or getting stuck at the boot screen, the guys did try updating the unit and also restoring it to factory setting but nothing changed. after speaking to the helpful staff they sold me on the idea of the new 518 model and fitted it straight away for me! this model is so much better, far faster and the voice control using apple car play is so amazing i no longer have to type anything i can do it all using siri. amazing service and an amazing product thank you guys for fitting me in before Christmas and allowing me to enjoy driving my van again.
