Anyone have this Nav Unit?

Im looking to either go Stage 1 BSW or make the jump to aftermarket. I prefer to stay stocklike. My question is does this headunit make it easier for amp connections / speakers?

That looks awesome! How easy was it to install? Does it integrate well with an Android phone?

Don't buy any chinese rubbish, find somewhere local that imports them as they are riddled with problems and support is non existent. I have an Eonon and i regret buying it.

I have the Dynavin unit in my vert....had it almost 2 years now. Works great and has an excellent OEM look.

I'd recommend you go to the audio section of the website and take a look around. There are numerous threads on all the different types out there.

+1

Bought my first Dynavin a couple years ago, loved it so much that the First purchase I made when I got my ///M last year was another unit. Bought both from Jeff with Dynavin Solutions (I think that's the name). You will not find better customer service ANYWHERE!!!!

I installed the Dynavin last week. I absolutely love it. I also installed an X46 box in the trunk that allows me to lower the roof with my remote control. Great mods!

You can do that with coding (PA Soft) - no hardware necessary.

Yes please. I knew it was possible from the door keyhole... not from the remote. There are a few places out there selling add-on boxes to accomplish the feat with the remote, so getting the word out about coding could save quite a few convertible owners ~$100+.

Buy that. All you have to do is click a few boxes to enable the top w/ remote. I also use this to switch up with DRLs, no parking lights with headlights on, etc.

You just have to click the box that says "opening- remote control"

It's that easy.

Just for info:
The modules you see for sale allow for one touch operation! press lock/unlock button 3 times and release and the roof will continue the opening/closing sequence this also allows you to press the button in the car once and release to open/close the roof, whereas coding the Remote requires you to press the remote lock/unlock button 3 times and hold down till the roof is fully open/closed also if the signal between the remote and the car is lost mid operation (which happens often) you have to press the button again 3 times and hold down till complete, so really it's all about whether you want to stand and watch your roof open/close or walk nonchalantly away while its closing
:-)

Now I am glad I bought the box. I just need to perfect a swagger as I walk away and the top does its thing!

Really? For $30 this thing will enable the remote up/down of the top? Very slick!

Too bad the range on my FOB is like 10 feet! Can't really swagger
