Anybody seen/have one of these aftermarket gps headunits?



http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Dodge...fAudioQ5fVideo
Seen these on ebay the other day and thought they looked to be a little better unit than an RB1. They have a factory style round face and I can only assume they use the factory plug. The iPod interface is a big selling point. I have an RB1 in both of my cars with a cd changer and I modded an aux input into the changer. But... I am not very well pleased with the outdated tech of the RB1 and the GPS is so clumsy I don't ever use it. This however looks to be a much more up-to-date in the software and easier to use.
What do you all think? Worth looking into?

2004 Chrysler 300m Special 3.5L HO 123k
2001 Dodge Intrepid ES 3.2L 156k
2001 Chrysler 300m 114k (parts car)
2002 Chrysler 300m Special (project car)

That looks really, really cool. I like how it has chrome accents on the knobs, Software looks nice too. It looks very OE as well, which is the only way I'd put an aftermarket system in my car.



I want one!

As cool as it looks, I can't justify spending 200+ on a HU. Let alone 600. That's just asanine.

You can get them $100 cheaper but it ships from Hong Kong.

I have 2 good RB1's that I can sell and get enough out of to pay for one of these if I decide to go for it.

With a milling machine anything is possible. I got an RBQ to fit in my 1st gen.

I realize that second gen radios have been put in the 1st gen cars - but I'd still rather get something that looks a little more at home.

Yeah, I don't know why it would need to be connected to the cars computers...

Also the TV option would be of no use with the analog receiver.

Yeah, I understand that. But, I don't see any manufacturer going after that niche...
