Satellite Navigation

Ricky Fenby Auto Electrical can supply units from all the primary manufacturers such as Tom Tom , Garmin, Pioneer, Kenwood and Alpine to offer you bespoke installations to look as good as factory installations.

 

There are two types of navigation product available to the in car market, being the portable type that you simply stick to your windscreen and go, or the fixed in dash type which offers a more permanent secure solution.

The obvious benefit the portable system has is that it can be used in any number of vehicles, and can even be packed in your luggage to navigate you in your hire car when on holiday. They can be powered for a limited time on their own internal battery, or more usually by power taken from the car’s cigarette lighter. Our technicians can make the best of your portable sat nav installation by ‘hard wiring’ the system into the car to make a tidy job of providing power to the unit. We can also integrate the unit into the car by installing a vehicle specific mounting bracket, or we have even hidden units behind pockets or in ashtrays for a more secure installation.

The alternative to the portable system is a fixed in dash. The big advantage with this type of system is that we can better incorporate it into the car for a more factory look, avoiding the need for unsightly cables across the dashboard or suckers on your windscreen. A fixed system can also be linked into the vehicles speed pulse which allows for far higher level of accuracy of navigation and to the vehicles handbrake for a safer driving experience. Any number of screen options is available, from slide out single din screens to double din or even bigger!
