Post by JPochron » Tue Oct 22, 2019 8:20 pm



A friend of mine owns a 2008 GL1800 and wants to add an MP3 Player that is compatible with the Navigation System. Has anyone added an MP3 Player to their GL1800 and if so what make and model MP3 player did you intall?

thanks

Joe

I have a J&M. Works fine but locks up occasionally. There is a DVC knockoff of the J&M that can be purchased out of China on EBay for cheap. Some people have loved them, and others have gotten poor units, like pretty much everything out of China. You pays yer money and you takes yer chances. To the best of my knowledge, these are the only two still available. Oh, and by the way, the probability of the J&M unit coming out of China is about 96%.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey
