I was just trolling you. If I do decide to buy the head unit.. I think I'd need a cheap alternative to a full-on data plan. I'll go with your idea thingy and use your email!

Finally got around to ordering this to replace my last 2 units.

First thing to do was replace the stock launcher with Google Now launcher.

Second is to download Home2 Shortcut. Set the Google voice search to open when double tapping the voice button on the steering wheel. No major gripes yet...

Is the Smart Rover 8" with buttons and knobs same OS and features as the 9", or does it have to be altered to work? I'm looking for a plug and play unit but I like the look of the 8" better. I have a '14 6 Touring, no nav, non-Bose.

"Support Joystick √ (Make sure your car does not have the original navigation, or joystick will not work again, please note.)"
Not exactly sure what that means.. Can anyone clarify? Or can someone verify the system would work with the 15' GT ATX Bose, Nav, backup camera, commander knob etc?

Thanks!
Does anyone have any input on this? I contacted Kevin and in his last message he said that the joystick would work but the commander knob will not. Not really sure what he meant by that..

?? All the answers you need to know is on the first page. Since you have NAV on the car already installed, means your commander joystick will not work.

Has anyone ordered a unit from either Kevin or Louis in the last few weeks?
I placed an order on March 3rd with Louis and was originally told it would take about a week to ship out. Ever since then I have been getting excuses because of "delays from the factory" and they still haven't shipped it out. He is claiming that all of these units are coming from the same factory and that they have been backed up for quite some time.
Just curious to see if anyone else has put in an order in the past few weeks and already received it.

I tried contacting them via aliexpress message yesterday regarding delivery costs but still no answer.
Shipping to croatia is $470, while to neighbouring countries, e.g. Slovenia and Hungary it's free.

This is normal. It took about 2 months to get mine.

Hi there! Any issue with a buzzing/humming at low volume? I just installed mine and there is a static like noise at low volume.

Thanks.
