The price was set at $240 shipped but I have sold-out. My next shipment is coming next week and the price will be $230 shipped for mp3car members. These units are a little different: Color - Black, LCD panel - Sharp (instead of Panasonic). I have not seen these yet but the manufacturer swears that the quality is better. I will test them and will post the details when I get them.
I'd be wary of the panel change as the Panasonic one is the same as the Xenarc VGA screen so has a native resolution of 800*RGB*480. IF the Sharp one is a std 460*rgb*234 panel then its not gonna be better IMHO.
Any chance you have one of the old batch left that you can do a side by side comparision with??
Definitely order with the touchscreen installed if you want the touchscreen.. getting the internal USB cable to fold correctly when the screen is in-dash is very annoying! It can get caught on the latch, inthe spring, in the gears, behind the slide tray.. and there's no easy way to control where it folds to.
