Default Presentation...

Hello all,

First:
I won't be able to hang out with you guys/gals physically any time soon, since I don't live in Australia. But, I hope you can have oversight with that and bear with me anyway.

The car:
- a 2010 Pajero Wagon
- 3.8 V6 variant
- paint - Dark Green it's called (picture makes it "lighter green than it is in real world)

Interior
- LHD
- beige leather trim
- 7 seater possibility
- No MMCS but "at least" the custom size Rockford audio solution and BT.

Customizations:

- previous owner built a custom exhaust system - it's both purring and growling now... for good and for bad

- an aftermarket GPS/phone holder on the top center of the dashboard for a Garmin GPS (for the time being - I am considering something different).

Upgrade wishes: The list is fairly small and focused on "convenience" and "light work" - terrain driving rules in Sweden are very stringent and on top of that, the clubs usually add a whole lot of their own "regulations". Safe yes - but expensive!!!!



Cheers from Sweden,
JapSwede

Hi JapSwede. Welcome "down under."

While there are always things to dislike, Garmin use a map format which is now widely available. For example you can download OpenStreetMaps in Garmin format. Meaning ski maps, sea maps etc can be uploaded to a Garmin while still keeping (or updating) the original map as well.

My only issue with the Garmin system has been their failure to continue their mobile phones, which really were fabulous for GPS integration.

G'day,

Dicko1 / Aussieintaz - since I really wanted a LR Discovery4, in the classic Brittish "green and beige", this was as close fit as possible without being totally cleaned out financially with a LR D4.

Scrambler - I had the Garmin around from my previous car - Pajero Sport 1999.



Thanks for the nice welcome,

JapSwede
