    I've had a Xcarlink in the car since my very first RNS-d unit and its always worked well and done everything I've asked (Even watched movies on my iPod video) but I've wanted more of a OEM fit.
    I've heard and read about the phatbox but never paid it much attention until now.
    I spent a couple of weeks looking at different phatbox adverts on ebay and trying to work out the best way to build up a phatbox kit then I came across a advert for a new, in box, unused phatbox and thought sod it. I'm buying it.
    So I sold I Xcarlink and bought the phatbox.

    In a box.

    I was never aware of the phatbox having voice prompts but it does.
    Pre-recorded voice for the menus and options but a Stephen Hawkins style voice for the albums and artists.

    Small video for the voices.

    Seen that site.
    I've updated my firmware and that's it.
    Can't think what else I'd like to do.
    The 20gb drive is enough for me.

    I'm going to look into changing the voice prompts and renaming the labels on the RNS-d.

    I have one in my boot along with the thermos and the snow shovel. And the pack of snickers.
