    Where can I get the k301 in-dash unit?

    I like the design of the 301 because its not flashy and is somewhat concealed to deter theft. I am going nuts and I almost want to resort getting it direct from china if i can't find it stateside. Can anyone tell me where to find it or something that looks similar? Thanks.

    I have the K90 (which is very smiliar to K301). One of the wires inside the unit (the one that provides voltage to the backlight) burnt out. As long as u can open up the unit and replace that wire, you're good to go.

    Interested in buying?

    You mean the inverter burnt out, not the wire?

    I smelled a wire burning and the backlight flickering.

    Yea, sounds like the inverter burnt out. If there is enough current going through to burn the wire, then it's likely the inverter was burnt too. Or it could have been the lcd ribbon cable which burnt, in that case, very difficult to fix.
