After finally moving up to a 51 reg vehicle it was quite disappointing to discover that it has no standard clock (other than when the radio is switched off), and no exterior temperature with ice warning.
This product solve that problem .... Looks great on the dash and proves both inside and outside temperatures, clock and alarm and a constant check of your battery's condition.
As with a lot of imported products, the multi-lingual, pidgeon English instructions are appalling! but anyone with a basic knowledge of digital clock setting can get it up and running in minutes. Biggest complaint is that it does not tell you how or where to place the outside temperature sensor.
After a bit of Googling (on images) the easiest way is run the cables as far out of sight as possible (I ran them down the radio edge with double-sided tape and under the back of the glove box) then out the front of the passenger door and stuck the sensor on a moulding just in front of the door where it becomes quite inconspicuous).
So far it is all running perfectly. On the previous reviewer's comments about the blue background light becoming a distraction if sited too high:- I can see the point but, in all honesty it's no more distracting than a satnav and, worse case scenario, you can spin the display to point to the passenger if it becomes a problem.
