Thanks moderators for refining my review
Thanks to shyamb, minubasil, sandy_fluidic, DrRG, visran & pars21 for the encouragement.
Now about the multimedia music system it costs 58000 at the dealership. My advise is to negotiate or ask them to retain original speakers for some discounts. The original speakers are excellent IMHO. This system may be available aftermarket but need to check availability. Its motevo
make, but being Maruti OE accessory for new swift
only, may be not advertised for Ertiga, also its in jet black colour, but fits perfectly in place without any panel as if made for Ertiga.
The best things I liked are-
1. You can listen to music while getting directions from Mapmyindia Navigation System V-7.0 and attend to phone calls via bluetooth at the same time.
2. You can listen to music from your phone via A2DP.
3. You can stream multimedia content to view on 7 inch HD LCD display.
4. Lovely touch interface for Navigation only, others is OK types.
5. Most importantly all steering remote buttons work seamlessly!!
6. Rear cam function works perfect for tight parking situations.
you can check the following link but the model shown there is for old swift
but specifications are same. Satcom Zone | Motevo - Motevo Maruthi Suzuki Swift Distributors in India, Car Stereo Distributors-Maruthi Suzuki Swift, Motevo Maruthi Suzuki Swift OE Systems Dealers in Tamilnadu, Motevo Maruthi Suzuki Swift Dealers in Coimbatore,Maruthi Suzuki Swif
Surprisingly the original Audio system with remote that had came with my Ertiga ZDi is still with me totally untouched!!
I will certainly try to post few picks of the carpet lamination tomorrow. I think its a must required one if you have kids in your family dropping food, water, liquids, etc. can be fatal.
Go for whatever your heart says, I know its hard to convince a daughter so young, but remember ZDi has so many features which you will not be able to install in VDi at a later stage. I will always recommend ZDi over VDi.
one more thing, tell your daughter that when she will sit on the last row seat, the best available view is form the rear windshield. Kids will not enjoy if the rear windshield is dirty. My experience is the rear windshield also gets dusty & dirty same as the whole car during long drives. When we were on the way to shirdi and shani shinganapur, there was a constant request from the rear bench to wipe & clean the rear windshield for the better visibility.
Only ZDi has rear windshield wipers & surprisingly one can't install the same in the VDi, that's a real miss from Maruti Suzuki Engineers!!
One question to all, I have "Fuel log" android application installed on my Samsung Galaxy S II, how to confirm the average?
