Almost there in getting the Dynavin.. BUT!
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:
I really appreciate your feedback on these.
- Decent iPhone support for controlling tracks, changing playlists and search?
- Does not reset current playlist when connecting or switching sources. (Biggie to me)
- Has good quality Bluetooth sound.
- Traffic updates for NAV
- Sound quality is on par with factory audio with HK speakers and amp.
