A long time ago I seen a picture of a Koup with this nav system in it and fell in love, also all the existing faceplate and options stay available! I e-mailed about info and they said it was $850 to the door. It comes with the 7" touch screen nav, all the wiring the housing for it and it even comes with a rear view camera, remote and internet connection, not that I really cared about that. But I think it looks great. What do you guys think? Thanks for all input!

I'd say NO, any chinese or off brand packaged navigation usually sucks. if you want a good system, get the housing from online. ((K)IA (I)N (A)CTION)) bought the housing before, then go ahead and buy a Pioneer 7" headunit, and hook everything up to it.

Hey man I have a double din nav and I love mine! I have the Clarion NX500 and it was a lot cheaper then the major brands and does the same if not more. I got the faceplate from installer.com for 30$!! Thats a cheap setup and it's a rly rly good one! I have a thread with pics if you wanta search for it. The only thing it doesn't have is Internet connection but has preloaded maps, 12 million POI's, satellite, HD ready...the works. Check it out! Like someone said, these Chinese no name units are a real risk and if anything were to happen to it, customer support is a lot harder to deal with and a lot slower.

You wouldnt be able to get it thru alibaba anyways....they only do wholesale. You'd have to find a supplier who's willing to buy probably atleast 10 units. That's the one thing that sucks about alibaba.com they got alot of parts for our car, just can't get them.

The only thing I was worried about was loosing my satelite radio, so I can still keep it with other in dash units?

Like I said peachy, my head unit is satellite radio ready so all u need is a pretty inexpensive adapter and also can get a steering wheel adapter and u can keep your steering wheel controls
