I have looked at this and actually communicated with this outfit to ask them a couple of questions. My concern with this is losing audio quality (the Digital Audio Conversion). It looks good and solid. The fact that you can connect fiber directly is a good sign.This looks like an interesting mod. Has anyone tried it?
Their answer seems pretty ambiguous... or not completely convincing....
Hey... that’s great @Teddis. Maybe you can do some research in the spirit of informing your fellow Macan forum members of the quality of this product!!CRAP....ths looks AWESOME.....and they are close by me, LOL
Yes. I didn’t really know from their answer what they were saying “YES” to. Not a lot of technical information. It seems they are resellers with not a lot of technical knowledge about the product. I didn’t want to be their “guinea pig” for this, hence why I didn’t pull the trigger.Their answer seems pretty ambiguous... or not completely convincing....
I don’t know. That’s is one of my questions, but their answer was not definitive. Assuming it connects directly to the MOST25 fiber network, I have to assume that there is no degradation in audio quality. I think that this head unit, operating on android, have native android “CarPlay-like” support. But to enable Apple CarPlay you need a module. I think that’s where the degradation can occur.Santrix...so do we know if it degrades the audio...through conversion ?
Im in the GTA as well. I only have the base radio which I regret so much that’s why I’m looking for an upgrade. In all likelihood i can’t imagine it being much better or worse than the base. I really like the clean look.
My question would be: "what's displayed on the MultiFunction display in map or navigation mode".
The only place listing it cheaper (476$ to 537$) is AliExpress. There's several versions (Android 6 or 7; 1b ram + 16gb storage / 2gb+32gb / 2gb+64gb). Some models seem to always have the aircon controls displayed at the bottom.I don’t see this for $600... where are you seeing that? I see it listed at $1,100.
