Question Almost there in getting the Dynavin.. BUT!

Hi Everyone,

First of all, Jeff, this thread is AWESOME! Secondly, Iíve been itching to trash my factory MKIV NAV for a while because it is so NON-Intuitive. I needed to add the POS Dicelink as an iPod adaptor which has been nothing but a nightmare since I got it. Been through 2 already, they always fry my electrical system, latest problem is it now shorts my left turn signal. It also resets my playlist every time I connect my iPhone to it. No other iPod/iPhone devices I own do that and it really annoys me.

The other problem with the OEM NAV is the cost of adding Bluetooth support. So I have to use a Parrot minikit box, which works but does not sound too great. I know Dynavin was making a 5 meter cable to connect the unit to the rear audio bus for factory NAV systems too. Hopefully it works.

Can anyone tell me if the Dynavin E46 has:
  1. Decent iPhone support for controlling tracks, changing playlists and search?
  2. Does not reset current playlist when connecting or switching sources. (Biggie to me)
  3. Has good quality Bluetooth sound.
  4. Traffic updates for NAV
  5. Sound quality is on par with factory audio with HK speakers and amp.
I really appreciate your feedback on these.
