Not sure about the Nav 4(Zumo 660 in essence)

The control wheel on the left handle bar does not work with the nav 4

Just don't be expecting big things from the control wheel. The only useful function I can find with it is being able to zoon in and out on the move. No doubt that is a criminal offence these days..........................

Strangely its not illegal to use the control wheel on the move. But it is if you use the touch screen  :027:

Having got 3 points and and MS100 because I was witnessed to have handled a plastic bag while driving my sprinter I wouldn’t  Go thinking that the above is true.

The quote I got  from the copper ‘Go to court and fight it it’ll cost a dam site more and you’ll still loose’ all based on the mobile phone law.

And if you ever do get ‘Done’ what a nightmare the insurance is for the next 4 years having a MS on your license.

I can only comment on the information via the AA's website. But of course the police may have different Idea's.  :005: In fact to be on the safe side, best not fiddle with it whilst on the move.....

Those were my initial thoughts, but with a bit of familiarity - it probably can take the place of every second ‘finger-prod’ to the screen,  and allows rapid scrolling through fuel stops for example.     

(Still not as functional as I was hoping - I admit  :164:)
