Soundplicity, Dice Duo or Usa spec?

If the price of each was the same, which would you choose?

I have a Dice Silverline Pro in my 330CI. It works well. I recommend the Dice unit.

Soundplicity, Dice Duo or Usa spec?

I have the soundplicity and love it. It is very simple and does what it's supposed to do. Great sound quality and works with skip track on the steering wheel controls.

My Ride: is worth $5k
SoundPlicity is two months backordered, so maybe something else at the moment...

They are actually back in stock as of yesterday, and we have TONS again We carry both the Duo and Soundplicity, and I would be happy to field any specific questions you have on either units!

Both units (and the Mediabridge) can be found below!

I have the Soundplicity.. or whichever one wires into your CD in the trunk and then you have that nice long cable that always charges your phone last me one year.

First came minimal problems.. "Phone not charging with this accessory" yet it only happened on my iPhone which was never updated. Then slowly I started losing functionality such as no longer able to switch tracks through steering wheel or head unit. The last was today when it wouldn't even connect.

I'm so upset! But for 10 bucks a month it was worth it!

Can you shoot me an email with your order number? Assuming that was ordered from us we can work with you to get you back up and running! Definitely not typical however, usually once they are installed you stay up and running for the life of the vehicle!

I cannot recommend the Duo (Audiovox). First, it did not work with the fifth generation nano (and I tried two of them) - it initislly recognized the nano, but would become unresponsive after s few minutes. It did work as advertised with my sixth generation nano, but I had to stop using it because it changed all of my star ratings for music it played (and I depend on star ratings for my playlists). Now I have it connected to a 30GB iPod and it appears to be working fine, but I haven't checked my star ratings yet.

Have you ever updated your unit?

you mean the firmware on the Audiovox/Duo? Yes - I tried, but the firmware was already up-to-date.

Was the firmware on your nano up to date as well?

Thats unfortunate because all ipod nano's should work with out, same goes for ipods/itouch/iphone (excluding iphone 5 as of right now). Who installed this unit? It is a crucial step to unplug the battery when installing this unit into the vehicle. I would advise you to unplug your batter for a minute or so and put it back on and it should re-initiate the electrical in the vehicle and recognize the unit as part of the vehicle. Hopefully that would work for you.
