Default Re: Avin Avant 3 Wait and Other Options

To sum up this thread (I'm the OP) - I originally had ordered an Avant 2 in December 2015 ~2 years ago, and immediately received a message asking if I'd like to be on the pre-order list for the 3 instead as there were no more 2's in stock.

Expected wait time was 3 months. Here we are 21 months further than that. I hope the product is quality, but I will never get it after the horrible experience I had with (oh another 2 months..blah blah). Very much like the xtron unit i ordered as a replacement, and hope it lasts a long time.

Latest info on the Dynavin N7. Looks to be very polished.

Yea, I totally understand your point of view. What I like about the Dynavin is:

- Mature product (I think this is the 9th iteration)
- Native OS which seems polished/stable (and no app updates to slow down performance over time)
- Apparent high quality audio components (they claim)
- Parrot Bluetooth
- Screen seems to do well in bright sunlight on this version

What I dislike:
- Fisher Price Buttons and CD slot make it look aftermarket
- CarPlay Adaptor is extortionately priced (299 USD)
- No possibility for Google Maps/Waze

I like the look of no CD slot (though, CD's always sound best) but the new one with all the buttons and fuss looks cluttered and most make ZERO sense or repetitive of what's on the screen or at your steering wheel controls. I'm not going to buy it regardless but IMO *that* is the deal breaker for the Avant3

Default Avin Avant-3 by AvinUSA is coming -)

Hello guys,

I just wanted to share the news that Avant-3 is real and coming soon.
As a previous Avant-series user, I was waiting for the newer version for a long long time. Of course, it's coming way late after 1 year wait and I know most people in the pre-order list got mad due to this delay of the release.

I was not the one in the list since I thought Avant-2 was enough at that time but I just placed an order thinking that it'd be a great Christmas gift for my 14-year-old car. I'm really excited to see newer version installed.

Product link:
https://avinusa.com/avant-3-for-bmw-...on-system.html

Anyways, here's the brief info of Avant-3 (I know might be not enough info...):

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Avant-3 will look 98% like the OEM factory navigation system
Harmon Kardon supported
DSP is supported
Onboard computer supported
Android OS version 6.0
8core CPU
2GB RAM memory
32GB Internal Storage.
Bluetooth 4.0
Option for Apple CarPlay / Android Auto
Support for Valentine V1 Radar Detector
All new radio tuner with the best reception
DAB+ support for Europe
More powerful amplifier with nice clean sound
4V RCA Preamp Output
Long range WIFI support for both 2.4GHZ and 5GHZ bands
4G LTE built-in
Your head unit will be able to have its own phone number, make and receive calls without ever being connected to your mobile phone.
Support Tire Pressure Monitor System.
Digital TV ATSC and DVBT
Bluetooth OBD2 for Torque performance and diagnostic
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This product information was confirmed by Tommy, the owner of Avin USA.

I just ordered the new unit(+all the accesories) and will post a review after installation. Unit review will include avant3 itself, as well as its all available accesories like car play adapter, external DVD player, DVR, and TPMS. Unfortunately, it'll take some time since I can only invest my time on weekends (and I suck at DIY stuff ).

Let's hope all will work out good.
I'll update here when it arrives here -)
