After being severely disappointed in the performance of the stock Magnadyne M9900DVDS radio/CD/DVD player, I purchased one of these to replace it.
This navigation unit plays DVD as well as Divx video disks.
Radio is also compatible with both Sirius and XM and fully functional with my I-Pod (so I don't have to carry around tons of music CDs.)
It is a double din unit, so the dash opening where the Magnadyne is currently located will have to be enlarged from the din and one half current size.
I already have a Pioneer navigation unit (AVIC D-2) in the toad - and it is extremely accurate and easy to use. The navigation systems are the same.
Since the DVD player in my Ambassador is up at the driver's console and the TV is mid-wall, the Pioneer remote does not even have to be pointed in the direction of the DVD player to operate it. This is hands down, better then the narrow beam of the Magnadyne system that has to be perfectly aimed in order to operate it.
With the steering wheel remote, I can now change radio stations, operate the navigation system or operate the I-Pod without having to take a hand off the steering wheel and keep my eyes on the road where they belong. This alone makes this upgrade worth it's weight in gold!
Can't wait to get this puppy installed!!!
I will report on it's full performance once I get it installed.
My RV pad gets installed on the 19th of this month and I will have it installed around the same time.
The ground is still to soft to park the motor coach in the yard - and my contractor is in the Bahamas (go figure) - on vacation!! Right now I have it parked on a co-worker and friend's house pending construction.
