How smooth is this process ? Does it feel like OEM or is it clunky?

Steering Wheel Function : Whenever you listen to the Radio and you are turning Steering Wheel then the Radio Station tuning up to anther station.

iPod: When you turn off engine then when you start again the iPod will take back to the first track of your iPod Library.

Navigatior: where did you place the GPS antenna ? How fast does it get signal when you start the car since you will enter destination as soon as you get in before you drive off so you would need the signal to be up immediately ? Else you will be sitting in the car for awhile to get a signal and that can be annoying.

Radio: Why is it so hard to control ? Can you explain a bit more ?

Steering Wheel Function : I dont get it ? so when you tune a radio station and then if you start driving and taking a corner the station changes ? that cant be it but if its so then thats unless !

iPod: This can be annoying too. Any idea if there is a fix ? The DICE unit doesnt do that. It will start palying from where you left off like it should!

These are some basic things that dont seem right to me.

Anychance that it might be on SCAN mode, like on the OEM if you do a scan it will flip though stations until you choose one to listen to. but that would not have any relation to truning the steering wheel. If its only flipping stations while you turn the wheel then there is something seriously wrong.

These are some basic things that dont seem right to me.
The NAV LOST Siganal I just mention if you don't place at the right place It will be annoying you.

I try several places in my car as under Console in the middle, Left, Right, I also tried to put on the roof. The Signal is good about nearly full bar.

The Signal come up quickly and after lost.

The Radio I mean It's complicated If you dun get used too it will be annoying you. I mean when you first started to use. other is good.

Steering Wheel Function : yeah it's annoying me when you turn corners but I gonna find out why it happens like that.

Ipod : it happens sometime so I have to try more and more then I will confirm to you guys again. other than that As DVD, USB, TV they come up from where you left off as weel.

I agree with you it doesn't seem right for me too but nothing hard to fix it.

KEEP UPDATED

good to know. I wonder if the problems will creep up after a few days/weeks as with Windows and need regular reboots. Keep us updated.
