wow, and MSRP is just over $1000. Thats a good deal w/ little or no fuss.
great find, great price
however, i still feel that the technology is way behind what we're achieving on this forum. For one, i can get a full blown computer under 1000k and it will do much more than the unit can.....
it still a great find - one of the advantages is the easy setup and use....:rock:
My tablet still kicks it's *** and I don't have to worry about my car being broken into because there's a cool gadget in it!
My tablet + docking station cost me $600 - about half of what that unit probably costs - plus my tablet does a ton of other stuff.
when they get smart enough to add web browsing to these mm heads, the need for a carpc will go way down.... it's probably only a matter of time, I mean even the psp can browse, these can't be far behind....
I love my alpine mm head, & it almost does enough to not need the pc, but internet is the biggest thing missing.... & a basic need I would say:)
No way $1000.. there current avic is $2000 my buddy just bought one..its ok but the voice recog. doesnt work very well and the POI gps maps arent very current.
Thats still a great deal, I dont care what anyone says....
Yes, Ill agree with the fact that you cant compare it with our setups and our carputers, but thats not really a fair comparison. This, for being a head unit, looks great and looks like it has a decent amount of features.... I really like the Video part of the iPod interface... That sounds neat. And Divx off of CD-Rs? Come on guys, thats pretty cool :)
for $1k, I'd buy it.
Bigest thing is ease for the customer, im excited for when the place i work at starts carrying these.
However, has anyone seen the AVIC Z1? Much more impressive unit...Many more features.
Also, i cant see any company making a MM in-dash system putting internet access on it, they are working very hard to make it so you cant watch video, let alone search the web while you drive
