    Things that i would like to have done are as follows :

    1.Have a decent upgrade to like RoadRunner that's most are using now.

    2.Have a decent 3D Navigation programme running on it similar to the latest TomTom's with full UK postcodes & westorn europe installed.

    3.What's the best or good small Gps reciever to have.

    4.Possible mini cam set up connected so can record car going on the road trips when needed

    5.If possible radio stations as well

    6.Any other idea's that are usefull to install as well that you recommend.

    I like the idea for the sub, but everytime you want to put it up or down you need to plug the speaker wire or unplug.
