I may be able to get you some special pricing on that unit. Especially on groub-buys.

Emailed with questions, this is the response
Hi Ben:
Thanks for the inquiry.
1. Can I use both front and rear camera ?
If you want to use both front and rear camera, then you need a switch box like attached photo. The price is US$50.

2. Is there a sub output and is it controllable from the head unit.
Yes, this radio comes with five RCA jacks fro external amplifier, FL, FR, RL, RR and a subwoofer. This radio can also work with factory amplifier(if your vehicle comes with it).

3. Will it work with the EVIC like the factory radio?
No, it can not support this function.

4. Is the speaker out put full range ?
Yes, if your vehicle comes with factory amplifier, then it can support it. If your vehicle does not come with factory amplifier, it can drive car speakers directly, the watt is 4*45W.

5. Install instructions so I can see how it installs.
Sorry, we do not have instllation instructions now. This unit is totally plug and play, it has the same plug as original radio. The difficult is how to take out the factory radio, once you take out the factory radio, the installation is easy.

6. Are nav updates free ?
Yes, the navi maps can be upgraded from our website for free. We will preload the latest maps(2013.12) for USA/Canada before shipping. And we will buy new map data from map company and provide you download link for free. You just need to download it on your PC and copy it into map card.
The only thing I see that I would miss would be EVIC integration. Everything else looks to meet my needs.

Things I like
1. full range output to all speakers
2.RCA outs for aftermarket amp
3.sub output
4.works with factory steering wheel controls
5. multiple cameras

Really torn between purchasing this or spending considerably more for the full kicker upgrade with sub.

By the way I already have upgraded from the base RES to the RHR Mygig. Do not like the sound and am hoping the Kicker upgrade will fix that.

Give me a few weeks I will let you know how it is I placed an order last night.

I want to figure out how to wire up my sirius raido to the antenna thats on the truck and wire up the power so all i need to do is plug it in. (I also have a ford focus for work purposes and I bought a life time member ship when they had it so I have a portable radio I can use i would just need to buy and install the car mount for it )

The link I provided in the first message is where I bought it. I did some upgrading to cam and did the wireless and 8gb sd card and the wifi USB. For pricing I would suggest you contact the company. I will let everyone know how it works once installed

Imo Im betting not many people are going to like this unit. The gps is off brand so Im guessing its not going to be that great. also being a single din setup the gps ect has limited space ect for hard drive/cooling/I see no fan ...

will it work ? yea I guess...

GPS signal ... to use the stock trucks gps you just need to remove the stock side plastic cover on the plug

IMO alittle more money you can buy a refurbished kenwood dnx890hd type radio and have full on garmin gps,phone,dual cameras,usb's,dvd, ect ect and have it all work when driving ect ....

I got my entire deal for like $800 including all attachments needed.
