It arrived the other day and really would love it for France.

What sort of mechanic should I approach to fit it a petrol head or a radio style shop?

Ideas please?

My delivery times are similar. I ordered one for a customer today and it will be with them by Wednesday latest (they assure me).

Im not in direct competition with odb. I sell things they dont and visa versa. Only difference with me is I specialise in one area.

I've tried to be discreet with my "advertising", but I got drawn into conversation on this one! Apologies if anyones offended.

Yep they come with operating instructions. If you can't find them, let me know and I can arrange for you to receive some.

6 hours is horrendus... it takes me 2 hours max!

Simple Instruction:

Find North with your compass. Set the outer ring to point to north. Then wind dish up until at about 24 degrees. Then turn dish so the arrow points within the yellow astra2 band. Hopefully a picture will appear, if not, alter elevation and scan again. Be logical with your search. When you get a suitable picture, move to little locking lever over to the lock position.

Job done. After a few times, you should have it down to under a minute! Fantastic bit of kit.

maybe we need some training here but even with a compass & basic sat finder we can be searching for ages...arguments and stress....all to watch eastenders!! is it worth it hhee hhee :roflmto:
seriously though depends on your suroundings how quick it'll lock on,but generally takes around ten mins.although has been known to take an hour,not good for the blood pressure..well worth it though in the end....good luck...sammx :winky:

You must be using a sly digibox... only that would make the job harder due to its delayed signal meter.
