I purchased the Raxiom and installed it myself. For me it was a no brainer! It's a plug and play unit utilizing all the Sync and steering wheel controls. Additionally, unlike the Ford nav unit, the Raxiom screen is HD. Also, the additional built in connectors allows me to connect my DVD player so I can watch my Star Wars movies on the HD screen while my is in the store shopping.

Here's a flash: the in-dash CD player and Nav screen from the factory will play your Star Wars movies off DVD as well. No need for an additional box.

As I said on the first page of this antique thread: I love the factory Nav. Had it on both of my s197s and would not give it up for anything. I am glad there is a least a decent alternative out there for people who don't have it though.

That's nice! However, since my Mustang GT/CS didn't come optioned with a Ford OEM nav, I purchased the Raxiom unit over others available on the market. It performs well for the price and I'm extremely satisfied.

Have you had any issues with it randomly shutting down or anything? It seems to be a toss up from reading reviews.

After wrecking my fully loaded 2012 BBP in Sept. I had to look really hard to find an MGT loaded the way I wanted it, namely, with everything, except the Recaros and glass roof, in a good colour.

Luckily my plucky GF found the SGM '14 I have now at a used car dealer locally and brought it to my attention. Had all the options and even the automatic I wanted, because I was tired of all the MT82 racket and I'm driving in town 95% of the time. The only thing missing is the backup camera but, I can deal with that, if I get motivated. Radar and mirrors have proved to be ok alone.

This is the problem with MGTs, is they are build to order and 2nd owners don't always get their pick. There are lots of Mustangs, but, only a select few the way I want them bc, the option load pushes the price close to 50K where I live.

king 13:

No, the Raxiom unit has performed flawlessly for me. Sync and all steering wheel buttons work as should. The back-up camera projects a brightly lit and extremely clear picture on the nav screen.
