Default Just received Avant-3 by AvinUSA: Unboxing

I have no idea why my previous thread was deleted -(
I just want to share a new gadget to the community.

Anyways...
I got not much time today so could not start installing this.
Just wanted to share unboxing images first. Good to see this thing is real.

It has slim profile, which I would really wanted, so I guess much easier to install due to enough free space at the back of the unit when installed.

Here're the shots taken -)



































Hope I can put this on my ride soon but weather's so freezing...

Wow it looks so much smaller than my avant 2. I'm assuming it's much lighter? Very cool

In the last couple months I installed an Xtrons unit which has been great. I wonder how it compares to this unit?

No one cares about the lack of technical specs around here?

Folks are scrutinizing the group buys left and right, but buying this from a product page with minimal photos and minimal details. #AvinFanBoys haha

Will be awaiting your review. We both value the same attributes out of these units.

I will say, I am impressed with how it looks. Easily it could pass as the OE nav unit to an untrained eye. Finally no more fisher-price buttons.

I just hope the UI is strong enough to offer modern OE speeds and functionality without being buggy.

If it gets your seal of approval after you have had time to really use it, I think I will be on board for one as well.

Nice, from previous pics I thought the logo was in white lol. Glad to see it’s black. Please get back to us on a review of it.

Just realized the backing is much flatter than our stock nav. I guess more room for wires and most likely lighter!
