I’ve also customised the PS1 to show user/host/path.

You should probably setup git bash completion as well. This can be done by sourcing the bash completion script that is available in the git source code as shown (change path to where you place script):

Have fun.

Error in PS1 string.
Need be:
PS1=”\[33[01;32m\]\u@\h\[33[00m\]:\[33[01;34m\]\w\[33[00m\]\$(parse_git_branch) “
