I am going to start looking for a decent yet cheap case for my Maps & More.

What are the best value suggestions and best places to buy? I have looked at eBay, but it is far easier to buy onrecommendation as you know what you are getting

The official case is very good. A zipped neoprene pouch with a pocket for the unit to sit inside. It's £10 or £11 well spent.

If you are not bothered about it saying Citigo on it you can get the identical case from Skoda for £7

Interesting, I have a parts contact with SEAT so will see how much they charge.

Thanks

Looks like it will either be the Up! or Mii case, having a soft spot for SEAT and saving £3 that I am sure Mrs Green will find something really useful to spend it on.........

Got this one from Amazon for £4.49 delivered - It is designed for protecting Hard Drives


http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008OZ7QAU/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00



I had a look at the original one in the dealer and I was worried that it did not offer much protection against geing dropped, crushed etc and bearing in mind how important a piece of kit it is (along with the cost) I decided to have a look online.



This case is slightly hardened so protects it against twisting, being dropped or crushed (all within reason) it fits the M & M perfectly whilst holding it place with elastic too.



If you must have the badge on it then go for the VW for £10 or Seat for £7, but just be aware it wont offer you any more protection than if you had slid the unit in a couple of socks!!

Useful tip many thanks, looks very similar to my sons hard backed DS case, mmm more food for thought and half the price.

So many choice's it seems it is harder to buy a maps and more case than it is to choose the spec of my Up! lol!!

I am planning on using the maps and more in my Leon as well so me having butter fingers does mean a case that will protect it if I drop is quite a good idea


This thread may prove useful to others in a case of adilemma,and they can just zip through this thread and carry awayeveryone'sthoughts before making Up! their own mind.
