Have ordered one. Not 100% convinced, but thought for £6-7 it was worth a punt. I see a UK Jimny store is selling them as something like £25-35, which appear to be exactly the same.

Bought one somewhere for £25. Very expensive for what it is but great for mobile phone. Surprised by the quality and texture of the plastic. Better than I expected. At £7 a strong recommendation. I use mine every trip.

Also bought the door handle pocket storage - again good quality.

Grab handle storage pockets - poor. Don’t fit flush and will probably remove them.

Rear boot mat from Suzuki - very good - rear seat belts need to be pinned back but again a quality item.

I find the inability to control Android Auto while driving ABOMINABLE.

So the tray is a lifesaver, as I prop my phone on it and use Waze from there.

Annoying it also means I have to control Spotify on the phone and connect to the car via Bluetooth.

But OH how much easier is it to use Android Apps on phones rather than Android Auto.

You won't regret it.

What difficulty do you have with AA? Don't you just talk to it?

Why do you even need android auto?

If I want to voice dial a random number there is a tab on the steering wheel that activates a "voice ignoring" mode- the only command it recognises 100% is "cancel" :laugh:
If I want to go somewhere I activate the inbuilt satnav, as long as the wireless is on smooth fm it does live traffic
If I want to have intermittent radio reception I select the DABs,
If I want reliable radio I select FM
If I can't bear the DJ on FM I select AUX and play a USB stick.

If I want to run the battery down on my google spy device 'phone I can use bluetooth audio.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

Google maps if far superior to the built in nav.

Can’t comment for Android Auto. But Apple CarPlay is super easy to use. Just like your phone but on the screen in the car.

Also much prefer DAB. So much better choice of radio stations. Reception is generally fine too. But it is dependent on the station and where you are in the country. Having now had these FM and old style SatNavs feel like a massive backwards step. And not in a good retro way.

Façade, London calling Jerry took a took a jolly good hammering last night. 12 stukers & 14 junkers u88's shot down, buy those brave boys in spitfires. Even TV is now in colour. If you don't like new teck don't use it. But I bet you have a mobile phone? so they can still track & listen to you all the time.

Yes I have a Google spy device. I am not happy that every step I take carrying it is reported to google who then sell the intel.

I took it with me when I went panic buying last week, and google asked me how my trip to Farm Foods was. :ohmy:


I may start leaving it at home, with call forwarding to my £5 burn 'phone. B)
