    I recently purchased a 2015 Toyota GT86 and the factory fitted radio is rubbish so i removed it and replaced it with a new Pioneer SPH-DA230DAD touch screen double DIN which has all the modern features like Bluetooth and DAB.
    It has also go the ability to provide navigation with an additional module that you can buy.
    The specs of this module are quite impressive and almost as good as a modern high end Tomtom device.
    Things like spoken road names with lane guidance and TMC to name a few.
    Not cheap at just over £300 for the unit but having the convenience of it being displayed on one unit makes it appealing.

    Investigate the subscription costs for life traffic and map update.
    Also who to contact for that.

    My wife's 2015 Nissan came with built in GPS, a requirement before upgrading to 360* Surround View.
    The system is HERE which is Garmin (which ever way), maps come on SD cards which must be purchased at the parts department of the dealer and for live traffic a Sirius XML radio subscription is required.

    We are not interested in listening to the same radio station across the continent and when new, the map provided was far inferior to the TomTom devices.
