I've verified it on my unit many times and the sound difference is very noticeable

If you mean using the entertainment feature when you press the navi button and play your music from the SD card then no unfortuntely, at least not that I can see as ther's no way to go back to the nav startup screen without exiting the SD card
Maybe with petrut's WinCE desktop patch you can do it.

**EDIT** looks like you can use both the if you install petrut's WinCE patch.......info here.......http://golfmkv.com/forums/showthread.php?t=107203

- mp3 player much better than the non-wince one, and with nice skins ( free, just search on google ), playlist, .flac support, etc. It works same time with navigation program, with sound from both.

What version will I be getting through Bimmian.

By the way Jeff... great info

Hi Guys,
We always stock the most current versions from Dynavin. Since Dynavin cannot keep these in stock themselves, we are always waiting on them to get more stock. That means that whatever WE get shipped, is always the newest version. We only order limited quantities because we are familiar with the constant upgrades they are making to this system. Therefore, when you order from Bimmian, you know you will always get the most current hardware and software versions.

Thanks

Nope, dynavin has put plugs in the harness so you can install without cutting anything.

Is the port on the front of the V5 a mini USB? and if so are you able to put music on a usb stick and play through the unit as I think I would struggle to do the WinCE download for the micro SD.

there is a music USB mini port on the front AND one on the back, they are connected internally so you can use either one. There is a third USB connected to the Windows portion for the above mentioned WinCE players. Lots of ways to do it, and they all work fine.

do you know if dynavin is planning on adding wifi support?

i know you said you dont have the ability to test the 3g modem at the moment, but if you have a phone that supports it you can create a wifi hotspot with then you wont need to use the 3g on the actual dynavin unit.

something to suggest i guess, since it seems like they actually listen.

i could definitely see internet access being awesome to have in a unit like this though, be it over 3g or wifi. they could include a weather widget, live traffic etc

i could see picking up random networks while driving around being a possible issue with wifi, but it could be set up so as to not seek other networks once connected to a preferred one

Yes the sound difference we are both agreeing on. What we are NOT conceding is which source produces a better sound based on our individual tests. Your test result, sound is better coming from mSD; mine sound is better coming off the USB stick. so result is a case to case basis. yrmv i guess hence my advice is for ppl to try it out first. if sound is better coming from mSD than from the usb, then go crazy on a high cap mSD card

You don't have to go crazy buying SD cards, if someone wants to try it out for themselves they can just copy a few songs onto their existing nav SD card and then make up their own mind.

service costs money my friend, Im not going to say anything about a fellow sponsor but why dont you email Dynavin and see what they have to say about that link.

Also, that isnt including shipping, no install guide, etc...so in the end the prices aren't much different.
