    bu-303 in a corsa

    Has anyone got a bu-303 gps receiver in a Vauxhall corsa (b model)? If so where abouts? Just got my second bu-303 as the first one was on my roof and i didn't water proof it.. dOH!

    I really dont want to risk putting it on the roof again even if I do try and waterproof it.

    cheers for any help.

    i don't know what you could get equivelent to what we have here in the states ... but I got a can of "Plasti Dip" from Lowes. It's a can of liquid rubber basically. I have the same GPS, and dipped it in there, coating the USB cable too. no probs

    I did 2 coats.

    Go to wicks or Homebase youll find the plastic stuff. Its used for coating roofs.
