Can anyone point me to an after market visor that clips on and either flips out or slides out to cover the gap? (My 2002 Avalanche had a sliding extension built in for this purpose.)
Regarding the Sony Nav Radio:
2) Are the maps current?
3) How do you update the maps and is there a cost to do so?
4) Is there any way to import Points Of Interest from a Garmin GPS?
Thanks in advance.
Agree with everyone else - the entire visor extends once unclipped at the mirror end.
As for the navigation, the map database seems to be pretty accurate - we've taken trips along the east coast from upstate NY to Florida and haven't had any issues or concerns with the quality of the maps - everything seemed to be current. The maps can be updated via DVD; you'd have to contact NAVTEQ with your vehicle information and they'll tell you if an update is available and how much it will cost you (my guess would be that the updates are in the $100 - $200 range). The POI database is fairly extensive, so you shouldn't have any concerns there. Not sure if you can import any custom POI's from Garmin - never tried it.
