Welcome to 2008.

When shopping for my 2007 Cargo, I used these brochures to cross check information from American Sprinter Sales personnel.

For instance: there's a 3-seat option in the states for the cockpit of a US cargo unit. If I wanted to know about heated seats for the passengers, I'd ask the American sales person if it were possible. If he said, "yes," I'd ask how come UK Sprinter literature says, "Seating – heated passenger seat. ONLY with single passenger seat." He'd check and say, "you're right."

We can learn alot from comp. lit. It's not just a useless undergrad elective :)

Adding thought? One of the advantages of Command GPS radio and screen 7" is the reverse camera can be in-corporated into the system, thus not requiring a second screen.
