Amazon is selling for $1,417.49. When I first found it for $329 on ebay I thought it was too good to be true or must be refurbished, but I was wrong. It was brand new, sealed in its original packaging and shipped directly from it's manufacturer. As a bonus their tech support is in the US and they speak English!

My wife has a 06 JBL Limited - aside from the well known splicing issues will the steering wheel remote work with this?

The Amazon price was always over the top. It was there 2 years ago even before the Chinese units flooded Ebay. Good to know that they have US support; this is always a huge plus. Is it made in USA?

However I think it has "older" technology but offers features which many units do not have e.g XM/Sirius tuner..
Were you able to find the CPU and Memory used by this unit?
Does it support Voice dialing i.e make call without having to fiddle with the screen?
Can you confirm that it uses the SW control without the need for addional kits or harnesses.

Overall I am glad you are happy with your unit.

You do not need ASWC steering wheel control adapter, that is all built-in. But If you have JBL system, then you will need AXXESS Adapter. All steering wheel controls will work as before EXCEPT BT Voice Command. This HU does NOT support Voice command for BT.

Is it made in USA? NO, the unit is made in China but branded and sold by M&D from the CA, USA
Were you able to find the CPU and Memory used by this unit? - Do not know, I will check, I was told it is running on Win CE 5.0
Does it support Voice dialing i.e make call without having to fiddle with the screen? - NO
Can you confirm that it uses the SW control without the need for addional kits or harnesses. No need for ASWC steering wheel control adapter.

Overall I am glad you are happy with your unit. Yes, mainly because it sounds better then stock radio, super fast GPS in re-calculating routes, text-to-speech, lane assist & junction view and latest maps from Tele Atlas (Gogo Swift)

I like the looks of the GPS too. Do the button text and knobs have the stock orange glow at night? I've noticed some of these OEM HU's do and some don't. Those that do really blend in well with the car design.

Easy to use and looks of 3D Maps, TTS and Lane assistance are excellent and it is very responsive. It hasn't been crashing or freezing like my stock in-dash HU for Elantra does.
Yes, the buttons and knobs glow orange at night and matches 100% and blinds in with the rest.

IPhone hookup

Can you hook an IPhone into the HU. I use my IPhone for music but not via the BT audio because I lose some of the options. Is there an IPhone hook in.
