Customer Question

I have just bought a 2002 auto boxster s with sat nav and cruise control. The sat nav is not very good as it won't allow a postcode to be entered so I was wondering if this was something that could be upgraded to a better user interface and display. I was also wondering if it was easy to upgrade the cruise to include a speed limiter? One final thing is that there is no trip computer to give me information... is it possible to have this fitted? Sorry for all the questions, but I hope someone can point me in the right direction on these things... thanks in advance!

Hello there are several aftermarket options to upgrade the stereo / sat navfor examplehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2mhVSMIJGM its case of finding a unit that best suits your needs as to sort out the lack of trip computer then a bit of modification is requiredthis excellent post lists whats requiredhttp://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/box_OBD_Mod/box_obd_mod.htm as for the cruise speed limiter then no this isn't possible as the cruise control functionality is hard coded into the ECU
