Becker Traffic radio/stereos

Post by swabyk » Wed 03 May, 2017 12:28

Has anyone got or has used the Becker Traffic Pro or similar Becker systems.

I like the look of the Becker products as they look in keeping with the age and style of the original radios but offer more modern gizmos such as gps sat-nav etc...

There are a few on ebay around the £100 mark but I wondered if anyone has one and whether they are any good?

one example being; http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/332202488980? ... EBIDX%3AIT

Thanks

One thing to look at is how recent the sat nav system is. A lot of the Becker units can't be updated past about 2007 (from memory) so you'd have to bear that in mind.

I have the cascade in mine and it looks great works great and has the latest maps and software.

If you search for the following string on ebay you can find the latest maps and soft for about £50

My point wasn't that the updates aren't available, just that the latest available update for the Traffic Pro is about 10 years old, with no prospect of being updated.
