My Factory Navi crapped out on me and this looks like an amazing upgrade, I'm just afraid of its reliability. Does anyone have experience with this yet? Any issues?

I found a similar unit for an Accord that is about half this price and was contemplating on purchasing that one but modifying it to fit my tsx.

Here's the link

reliability might be a bit hit or miss being an android base. Dontn put junk apps on it. Feed back is some love it some not so much

I loved it! issues, my iPhone would skip music when playing over bluetooth and had a bit of feedback noise but this was little to none when I lowered the EQ input via app. I placed all my music on a flash drive and it work out great on the unit.

I would buy it agin over having my old non navi unit. loved the google maps on it and it came with IGO free!! you can download offline google maps and not use any data off your cell.

I'm kinda curious about this unit myself. I have a 2008 with navigation. What would I lose and gain? Would my SAT Radio stop working? Is there an option to add SAT Radio to this unit? How about the AC and steering wheel controls, etc? Thanks

What about the option of SAT Radio? And is it possible to use my stock GPS antenna or are the connection completely different for the option?

I bought the unit and have been using for afew days. Things ive noticed when compared to metra radio kit with pioneer double din bluetooth nav stereo.

-When i get into car with my phone (iphone6) and it auto connects no notification (ring, beep for text)since BT on stereo receives sound.. I hope its just a setting
-BT phone calls people tell me they can't hear me clearly but with my old setup (pioneer avic z150) there was no problems, mic is right on face of unit
-Igo navigation lags when opening up, id compare it to single core pc opening up internet explorer slow.
-Climate control, when changing fan speeds theres a bit of input lag changing fan speed. temp stays at what you left it but I always have to turn AC off like it automatic set on when I open that program.
-loaded usb flash with songs 300 or so. Takes a while to read the files, plays no problem. Exit car and later come back its stuck on the last mp3 I was listening to until I let is scan the drive again for 30-40 sec or so to load the rest of the songs again..

I hope my problems are just because Android stuff is new to me, looks way better than metra radio kit and screen size is huge compared to and double din. But with that said ive have the unit crash and reset on me, maybe too many things open and switching back and forth, no idea. Am I suppose to shut down or stand by before i leave car.

-swaped usb flash drive to a samsung faster read/write it helped a bit on the constand drive scanning
-make sure to snug gps antenna wire, it gets loose easy losing signal
-there is red/black wires on bottom for LED bar that is under stereo above storage
