The dashboard comes with Andriod GPS system and place for two round accessory dials voltmeter, USB port, Cigarette lighter ??

Do you have pics of the setup?, or more detail on the spec of the electronics?

Edit   see the pics, but would like to know:

- The spec of the unit, - I think it is a Samsung A6 but can check this as it flashes up when the ignition is turned on. I have added a SIM card in for info storage purposes.
- Is is easily removable should you want to change it out for another tablet? - Yes it comes out easily and is changeable. I think they had an Apple in there before the Samsung that is there now.

Slasher,

No not as far as i can find out but Oruxmaps is also a VERY comprehensive mapping system that you can send GPX files to and it plays them

NO! T4A map can not be loaded on Android or iPhone directly.  There are no 'driver software' available to process the map like Garmin.  And in my books all Android mapping software is pretty feeble with way too many useless features etc.

T4A does have an App for Android but not as useful as on Garmin.  It can run totally offline though and use the same map as far as I could see.

** EDIT ** I could not get Oruxmaps to read the T4A maps when I tried about 8 months ago.

T4A has a mobile app, never played around with it.

Looking at a BlackView phone, tablet, hence my question to @Slasher

BlackView provides for GSM/GPS/GLONASS

My experiance with GLONASS was very positive - quick pick up of Sats, very accurate on the ground.

I run T4A on my iPad successfully?
The only reason I stopped using it was because it loses detail as you zoom out - never had issues with the mapping aspect though?
I downloaded routes/tracks from MapSource though, not BaseCamp....

Just to clarify
One need the APP - can not install/load MAP.

At what level did it zoom out?  Was it device specific?

Not sure how robust, but nice unit.

Has GPS/GLONASS location technology which is good.

Askies Adie - I misunderstood...! Yes, App certainly is required!

At what level did it zoom out?  Was it device specific?

When trying to view small dirt roads in Namibia, you had to zoom in to about a 5km resolution, but as they roads are twisty, you cant see then end point, maybe 100km away, so you cant "plan" the road you want to use without taking a general direction as a referance, zooming in to see where the road goes, so you spend a great deal of time stopping at intersections etc., trying to see where you want to go.....
Device was a iPad....

If one could get a strong dealer network I am sure these bikes would gain good market traction as they have in USA. There was a similar problem with the 610/630 Husky's that were very popular abroad but because of dealers in SA were little known and respected. It is good to see they are actively involved in ongoing R&D to improve things with quality parts. I am not a great fan of the extensive use of the red anodising although it seems to be their thang/signature - largely because red anodising fades easily from UV turning pink  ::)  I would like to see more of them - in fact would like to be able to see one in the flesh  8)

Yesss!

On the anodizing - I concur, red is the fastest fading color of all, unfortunately.
