Compared to four figures of great British pounds from one of them main dealers, correct?
Yes £3000 for a replacement NIT as they don’t do individual components and there are none anyway. People baulk at my prices! Yeah go figure!


I’ve worked out that every single GT/S hard drive will fail within 10 years.... starting with freezing, looping or the odd reboot... it is amazing how many ignore or live with it.

I also will soon offer a USB and Aux input upgrade.

I'm interested as you know Phil. Keen to hear how you get on.

As a reminder replacement hard drives are £250 for forum members only.
I've bookmarked your website as I intend to keep the GT for quite some time. It's almost 6 years old now, so I'm sure the hard drive will fail eventually. Can you do repairs on hard drives that are sent from the US?

I think the answer to this is it is WIP. I have sent a drive to a guy in the US with the European maps on it so once I get confirmation that is all good then all you would need is a copy of the US maps CD and then upload those to the unit too (in theory). But to be fair most people don't use the archaic sat nav functionality on the GT/GC cars as it is woeful. Most are just happy to get their units working again.

Thanks...and you're right about the woeful sat nav functionality...or lack thereof...on the GT. We've had the car over a year and we've never use the sat nav on it.
