Blaupunkt New York 830

This is what I got in terms of "deal" when bought new Honda Civic. I just asked to add twitters and they installed it for half price.

eBay says I can buy this 830 unit for EUR 650 (3,200 ILS). Honda sell it for EUR 1,700 (8,200 ILS) including instalation of course. But anyway, more than twice more. This is purchase "gift".

Few issues that I'm aware of:
- Stearing wheel buttons not working when ignitions is off.
- Sometimes mic stops working for calls. Solution - go to settings and select it again.
- At night it is not dims screen.
- Also there are gaps between sontg in MP3 playback from CD and flash drive via USB.

The booklet that you can find at Honda.
