I dont mean to sound like i'm downing your product but what gurantee is there that this thing well work or that buyers will receive it at all? I looked into buying the original stero from Dynavin, but the stories of people paying and not getting money back or it takes 3-6 months to get it after they were told its in stock and then having a hard time getting a refund.

I can buy the Dynavin models on line cheaper, so for your price of $850 don't you think the warranty should be a bit better. Maybe like a 3-5 year warranty, if there so good as to warrant such a high price then a warranty for these fine folks on Bimmerfest should give them awhole lot better feeling about buying it. I'm sure there is plenty of people who want to buy them but not without some thing better of a gurantee.

I'm not knocking your product but I did my research on the Dynavin products and there was too many unhappy people. So i hope you have a good product and have better luck.

If you guys come up with one that can work with the premium system or a harness to connect the two then you well for sure have a system worth buying

Good Luck

Where can you get it for cheaper than $850? That's the only price I've seen them being sold for.

Look on dynavins wbsite (if they still sell them cheap), ebay not everythin on there is crap, just a easier and cheaper way to sell your products, google the brand. Theres distributers throughout north america. They were roughly $600-$650, its been awhile since i started looking. I gave up since no one sells any that work with the premium sound system. Plus there was a model that had the recess where the CD slot is so that it lines up with the factory trim. I'm not saying thiis model he is selling isnt good but just that for the price i need a better warranty on it. Things seem to fail right as the warranty expires.

First off, I don't think many companies offer a 3-5 year warranty. When you buy a phone from Verizon or any other leading phone retailer you get a one year factory warranty. When you go buy an iPod or a computer from Apple, you get one year factory warranty. Any extended warranty you would need to purchase. Some of our customers purchase a 3 year square trade warranty. I believe is about $100 for 3 years. They will refund your money if there are any problems

I'm not sure where you saw it on eBay for cheaper, because there are only two authorized dealers in North America. We are one of the two, and actually probably one of Dynavins largest distrubuter. Other sellers in Europe are selling it for more than $1000. In addition you can view or credibility from our website
[www.ottonavi.com]. We also are almost at 2,000 Likes on Facebook. [http://www.facebook.com/Ottonavi]

As for too many unhappy customers with Dynavin, that's a first. Usually there is a waiting listing for these units as they are known to be very reliable. I have had many customers come in and play around with the unit for more than an hour before making their decision to purchase the unit. I mean realistically not everyone is going to be 100% satisfied with it but if 95% out of 1000+ people like it I guess you could rely on it. When you think about it people who disliked it will speak louder than those who did enjoy the unit.

I wouldn't go as far as to say the unit is a 10/10, there are always newer technology and software we can upgrade and add. However, apart from its OEM look I can comfortable give the unit a 8/10 maybe a 9/10 if you are a little more computer savoy and know how to operate a Windows CE operating system. Your also getting everything with the unit compared to having to pay extra for iPod cables, or RCA' jacks, or navigation software. Everything is included. Thanks

Unfortunately DSP is the only thing that will not work with this unit. I mean installers have made it work, but it is quite difficult because you will need to hardwire this unit.

Hello. Just some "inside information"...Dynavin actually has set price in which each authorized dealer is required to sell it at. As mentioned prior, we are one of two, authorized dealers in North America. We were actually offering our product internationally when Dynavin had contacted us and said our price ($850) was to cheap in the UK and we had to pull out. I think UK sellers are selling it for over $1000?

I can offer a forum group buy discount for $800 + Free camera + Free shipping. I'll have this group buy option open for a week or two. Keep posted as I will be posting pictures of the unit actually installed. Had a couple customer will-call the item and requested for install pictures.

2 questions:
What version of GPS software is used with this (NavTeq, TomTom, etc)?
How do you do map updates? (Your website and Dynavin says nothing about this)

So your saying if someone made the after market radio bezel with stock woodgrain trim that would suck?.Ima show you better then I can tell you.With all due respect anything is possiable.I also agree the aftermarket bezel sucks but it just needs tweaking that's all:-)

The aftermarket bezel can look nice and OEM, I am just talking about the unit itself. I personally don't see a unit like this out there in the market....but then again that may seem just a little biased now would it?haha

It would be free, you could choose either or. Some say iGO 8 is more user friendly while iGO Primo has more options and features.

What I meant by that remark/statement is I seen people cutting corners doing it, not saying you have. I simply like everything to be done right on my vehicle. Again as I said I could be wrong but will like someone to prove it. The ones I seen ppl making are spray painted, which is noticeable and simply ghetto rig in my opinion.
