Hualingan or Dynavin?

Hey guys,

I just came across this Hualingan unit

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with a Dynavin or an Hualingan unit.

Which one would you recommend and why?

Thanks in advance

EDIT: Updated unit brand

That unit you've got the link to is not an iGo unit, it's a Hualingan unit, Dynavin's competitor. iGo is just one of the many nav software programs you can choose to use on these units and mobile systems. If you want all the in's and out's, do a search on it as it's been discussed a few times in the US forums, but in the end, the Dynavin unit comes out on top with OEM looks, feel, sound, upgradability, R&D and support.
