Up to the minute traffic information on the move and the latest audio technology can now be enjoyed by owners of older Vauxhall cars and vans following the launch of a new range of navigation and in-car music systems through Vauxhall dealers.

A traffic message channel (TMC) is now available as an upgrade for every aftermarket satellite navigation system offered by Vauxhall. Designed by VDO Dayton, the range of dashboard-mounted sets can be retrofitted to all current models, with prices starting at £999 for the MS3100 model, excluding fitting.

This technology uses ‘live' information from a variety of sources to provide drivers with the latest news of current traffic conditions on their chosen route to avoid congestion.

Both pictographic information and voice guidance is provided, plus over 65,000 references to petrol stations, hotels, restaurants and other places of interest. Each system offers eight route choices and features a detachable display for theft protection.

For Vauxhall owners in search of the ultimate in in-car audio reproduction, the range topping CD4802 unit features an RDS tuner combined with both CD and MP3 player. MP3 technology allows a phenomenal amount of music to be stored on a single disk for high quality playback.

Manufactured to the same quality as original equipment supplied to Vauxhall by VDO, all aftermarket products interface perfectly with the vehicle’s existing steering wheel controls and in some cases remote displays.
