    Avin Avant 3 Cyber Monday 2017

    Seems like a good deal with $100 off the retail price.

    Until I realize that I need the extension cable enabling power, required if you have the factory nav option($60) AND the USB adapter to enable CarPlay or Andoid Auto ($99)

    Those added items put me at a cool $760... sheesh.

    The Avant 3 seems like a winner, matching the OEM system aesthetics to a very pleasing 98% while offering much more control over sound and many other functions.

    I'll wait until about 11 pm to decide on whether or not to pull the trigger on this deal.

    I had been interested in the Avant 3, but they're about 2 years overdue their promised date, their customer service hasn't been the best for some members here, and their website doesn't even provide much in the way of specs. Still, might be worth it for some.

    This. And my unit has the same specs at half the price. I got tired of waiting. lol

    Which reminds me, I should ask for my deposit back...

    Oof, still $600? Im pretty impressed with the Android units @ZHPizza has in both of his cars. They were less than half that price with backup camera included.

    So not worth the premium price then..??

    I have a lovely sound system installed, courteous of the previous owner and although I LOVE the look and function of the OEM head unit, I do believe it is not being taken properly advantage of (the sound system) It's been my daily driver as of late and will be for some time coming so an aftermarket unit may be the most practical answer.

    Push BP into a review of his head unit.







    Not that "head unit"

    The backup camera was useless and it certainly has its issues, but yeah I'm reasonably content. It might be worth the price of the Avin to have it (a) work right and (b) supported by a company. Support is probably the most important aspect to these as they're glitchy af.

    Fine, fine, fine... I know it's overdue! If you send a cure for laziness, that might help. lol
    This is becoming more of a hot button topic, so I will carve out some time tonight to start writing it up. Hold me to it.

    The only reason to buy this is for Apple CarPlay, from what I can see. Even then, it doesn't seem like it's worth double for that one feature.
