Would take the new one with the new updated touch screen camera etc, will just need someone to fit it was the reason was looking at prestige.

They closed for good are they?Whats issue with them
Not closed as far as I am aware but (in my opinion) f#cking rude. I spoke to them last year (after eventually getting them to pick up a phone or answer an email) and agreed some work.

Dozens of emails, web enquiries and phone calls over the next 3 months and not one response. And others have shared my experience of customer service!

Can I please put my name down for one if/when the new version becomes available? My wife’s 2018 swift has CarPlay and she’s crowing about the fact that she has something the GT doesn’t :p

Sure. Still test fitting the new box and have run into a bit of a problem but think I’ve found a workaround

Following previous woes with my SM system in my GTS, I bought a new dongle and all was well.

However last week the system started rejecting my phone when I plugged it in. As soon as I plugged it in, the phone started routinely rebooting ad infinitum and not connecting up to the system.
Android Auto with a Google Pixel 4 -as I say, all fine before.

Tried again with the old dongle - same outcome.

Found a fix - it's a known problem following the latest update of Google Chrome on the phone itself.
When I disable the Chrome app on the phone it all works fine again.

May be of use to someone to know.

Has anyone fitted this to the dash of a car that also has the rear seat entertainment system?
Would there be any issues with this?
