Honda City OEM with Navigator and Reverse Camera

Just sharing Mr. Husband's latest addition to Mr. Ride. It's not that new anyway, we have been using this for nearly 6 months now. It's Honda City OEM head unit DVD player that comes with Navigator (GPS) and Reverse camera. One may add in TV tuner or front camera but we didn't think that they are important for us. After all, Mr. Ride is just a small sedan. Too fancy accessories will make it ugly. Haha

Why we opt for this? Because we travel a lot and we travellers need this kind of thing to ease our journey. The husband has been wanting to have a built in GPS in our car since long time ago. He nearly purchased Garmin GPS while he was in the states last year as it was pretty much cheaper (everything in Malaysia is so expensive huh?). But he was afraid it might not be functioning well in Malaysia. Until one day we went to Pasar Tani Taman Melawati. Mr. Ride got hit with Proton Wira at the back that left the right brake light cracked.

I accompanied him to his favorite car accessories shop to replace a new brake lamp. That is how we met the handsome-ly OEM. We just fell in love with it when the sales person started to show us how the thing is functioning. The upgraded sound system with DVD player, USB connection, the rear camera plus the most important thing, Papago! During 6 months in service, we haven't experienced any serious problem with the OEM. But there are times it wasn't able to find the exact places or routes but Google maps on iPhone is always there to backed us up. The DVD is player at great help when we wish to see Faheem to sit still for at least 5 to 10 minutes. There is also bluetooth connection so we may listen to our favorite YouTube clips or from the iPod.

Cool isn't it?

  1. Reverse camera primarily help the driver to view obstacles that are not normally visible through their rear or side view mirrors. Of course this mostly lends itself to being most helpful when reversing and avoiding hitting other cars in the process.
