    Navigation Upgrade

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 11th 2022

    Works great, however, more involved installation than suggested. it may be vehicle specif. It was not a problem to install, just a little extra work on the connections. Great so far, everything I wanted and expected.

    Thank you

    Posted by John on Apr 22nd 2021

    I received the computer module, installed it with no problems. I appreciate the quick turnaround. Since my first contact with your company, just over a year ago, I continue to be impressed with the outstanding customer service you provide. Just about anyone can market and sell a product, but providing quality customer service to both new and current customers takes effort and dedication, often lacking in today’s consumer marketplace. I highly recommend 4D Tech, and am a loyal customer. You have earned that.

    '20 Ford Explorer Navigation Upgrade

    Posted by Gary Martin on May 22nd 2020

    Unqualified recommendation. Great technical service. Took about 2 hours to install . Cable connections can be a little difficult to diconnect. Great value. Works as if stock equipment. Make sure to order plastic tools package. Will need to keep from marring dash plate to be removed.
