finally GPS that works in the Evoque

Since I brought my Range Rover Evoque, which came without a navigation system and I have struggled with getting a proper GPS to work, mostly due to the solar attenuating windscreen. In the end I gave up with most and brought a system the links my phone with HUD which is quite OK but not I want with such an expensive car.

I finally found a reasonable, to me, work around. A mob in Victoria, Naviplus can install a navigation system that is compatible with and fully integrates with the sound system on the main screen. The system installs along with the factory audio system, and doesn't change / replace any of cars default audio, but just adds navigation + touch screen function features. They install the system box under the centre console area below the heater controls and placed a small aerial on the corner of the dash on the passenger’s side, no wires or anything showing at all. All up it cost me $1,200 but it works, looks OK and it makes me happy to finally have something that works every time I turn on the car.

While it does not add a NAV button on the outside buttons it puts the NAV button on the touch screen and fully integrates with the sound system, with music stopping when the GPS wants to talk.
Their website is http://www.naviplus.com.au/ and they are located in Brunswick and it takes just under 2 hours to install.

I have posted this with pictures in the modifications area but thought there might be more interest in the Australia area. A few pictures

That looks really good! Integrated into the system well and about 1/3 of the factory option. Nice work.

RE: finally GPS that works in the Evoque

I went to get a photo for you Ringo and nothing to see, he has installed it inside the A pillar. I thought it was on the corner of the dash but as I have a dash cover I just thought it was covered. So there is nothing visible at all which goes to the good work of the guy who installed it.
