Yup! I was wondering why it was taking AVIN so long to come up with their version as I thought it was going to be from the same factory as the Xtrons. I'm glad they physically redesigned it (don't know if the hardware is redesigned also) and it looks like it flows better with our E46's as well.

I did ask where the USB / SD cards will go and got the following response;

There is a sdcard slot at the front of the unit. Its under a fake button cover. Its the last button on the right with the sdcard icon.

Looks amazing, How much are we expecting it to cost? I don't really listen to music but I'll be dailying it soon and doing long road trips and have a few dead pixels on my stock unit.

Also will this require a new harness like the other units? 2005 HK system.

That looks much less like shit that some of the previous offerings!

Can it run android apps?
(harry's, waze, yav1)

If they can deliver that running android apps, be stable, and have a non glossy screen... I'll be out of excuses not to buy one.

No CD slot is how it should have always been. I doubt I've used my CD slot once in the last 10 years.

... though I'd still love for it to be able to bluetooth data tether with my phone (re: not battery draining, manually activated wifi tethering).

I wish the screen was bigger, however i am liking the design. I was completely against going Avin, and doing a custom Kenwood install. However, i may just go the Avant 3 route. The price, and ease of install, along with matching the interior. Cant beat it. As long as it doesn't have bugs like previous versions and the audio quality is good.

Assuming there's no significant flaw with it, that may well be what I've been looking for.

I think I'll wait a bit for some reviews, but this unit looks nice, and I've been looking for a replacement for my buggy Avant 2.

Damnit... just when I thought I was done spending money... guess I need to upgrade my Avant-2...

This is basically exactly what I wanted the Avant-2 to be... looks great... hope it performs as well as it looks...

I may actually take the time to upgrade to the trunk handle reverse camera (instead of the current reverse camera in the licence plate light setup I have now) as I see they stock that now...
