SECURITY FITTED NAVIGATION SYSTEM ROVER 200 SERIES
This unique security fitted sat nav project originally created for the 200 back in 2008, and now installed into the MG is designed to be concealed within the vehicles centre air vent, out of sight, and activated from a dashboard located one touch power button. Garmin nuvi 200 was used for this project after being mounted onto a self designed multi-directional alloy support bracket attached to a piano hinged base panel.
The secure location of this fitting, does not need to be removed at any time, a soft backed screen cover that mimics left air vent can be applied when not in use or during any short term stops, a safe and more secure option than being attached to the windscreen.
Advantages are having the screen shaded away from low winter sun driving conditions. The modified fitting of the original centre air vent front panel is removable as previously, allowing for memory card removal, also access to rear of the centre console switches.
Drivers view was achieved with using precise adjustments being made for getting a correct angle, taken from my normal driving position for full screen viewing and easy touch screen operation.
When the modified centre air vent is inserted back into the vent opening ( during memory card access ) left air vent goes directly into the vehicles heating system to continue providing hot air, the right vent is shaped to fit up against the screen surround for a neat finish.
When not in use, the unit remains un-detectable from inside of the vehicle, and more importantly from the outside. Associated cable and wiring are concealed in the dashboard, and of course no signs of any cradle suction marks being evident on any part of the windscreen, a good safety feature, and kept away from prying eyes. Created for the 1996 Rover 200 Series. Project design and installation (c) 2008.
