    I just finished the latest update for the liquidxx to support the 8P chassis, I have been able to test it on my 1.9TDi and a friends 2.0TDi but need to try it in a std petrol and turbo petrol.

    If anyone is around the fife/edinburgh area and has 10 mins to spare it would be much appriciated.

    Here is a video of a test run tonight (cut short due to my camera battery going flat) but it give a good idea about its operation.

    Looks like a top product, unfortunately not local enough to be able to help.

    Very interesting product mate. For the trial are you looking to hardwire or run a cable from the port?

    I will point a few people from up your way in the direction of the thread as I don't plan being back up the road for a while yet.

    Just plan a quick test with the unit plugged into the OBD diagnostic port, that is the only wiring it comes with.

    :respekt: looks like a cracking product mate.

    As Phil says, how much will these go for once testing is complete?

    The kit of bits to fit into your own vent will be £170, they should be on the web site by the week end.

    Hi, it also comes like this in a handheld / magnetic suction mount housing called the liquidCUBE.

    I like the faq that you can use this as a Mount:hubbahubba:. I don't like the idea of sacrificing a air vent just to display something. How Much does this one cost ? Screen does look a little small thou still.....

    Was that for me? I didn't really look at the posts above mine and should have quoted you I suppose. For the record: I meant that your boxed version would suit me better, not the RNSE, hence I thanked that post.

    Maybe integrating control of the unit through the RNS-E would be hard, but you could (moderately painlessly, I suppose) have a composite video output via an RCA cable that can be plugged into video inputs using a multimedia adapter?

    Fantastic product mate well done!

    I have some questions:
    1. The S3 has a chrome surround for the air vent. Will you be including this as on the website it only looks to be available with with the plastic surround.
    2. Do you have any plans to integrate this into RNS-E? To me that would be the perfect product.
    3. Do you have any pics of this with the black fascia?
