I've only had it a couple of days but so far so good. You lose XM but can still get it via their website. However that means you have to be somewhere where you get service. I don't have the XM so wasn't an issue for me though.

What is the name of the unit? Did you install yourself? It’s pretty awesome.

How does truck WiFi work? Does it work everywhere or only where cell data is picked up?
How much does it cost, I’m assuming it’s a monthly fee?

Looks like there are two types of these units - Linkswell and Phoenix

I love this setup, especially the ability to turn the cameras on while driving.

Unfortunately i don’t think i’m ready to give up the knobs and hvac controls. In my experience physical jobs and buttons are way more convient.

Wonder if anybody makes a smaller screen system that will retain the controls.

From what I've heard about the linkswell and Phoenix android units is that they crash ALOT, and have alot of bugs. I was interested in getting one, I even saw the GU auto tech one but I'm still on the fence. I loved the 12" screen on my ram, especially for the backup camera/360. This 8" screen just feels small.

That's a killer interior mod. It should keep the Ram fanboys quiet seeing as the screen is literally the only thing they have going for them.

Question though: How do you run your climate control/heated seats? Winter is coming...

Losing XM would be a deal breaker for me. We takes a lot of trips where there's no good radio station service. XM beats silence.

This is awesome. I have so many issues with my stock unit I am considering this. My dealer told me they are having a lot of issues with the head unit which is odd since I had the same one in my 18 raptor with no issues.

That is my gripe too...my wife's Atlas has the knobs and the touch screen controls and I never use the touch screen for stuff like that...way too cumbersome. But this unit does look awesome and might end up on my mod list. Dammit my wallet is gonna get lighter and lighter with this truck lol

He said his remote start through the app won’t work now. That’s a deal breaker for me if it’s true.

Man......my head is spinning with questions!!
Does everything "actually work"? ( I mean everything !!)
How often do you have to run updates?
Actual price?
How hard to install?
Can you revert back easily? (could be a sale killer down the road?)
Is is durable and will it last?

Those are just the first couple things!!!

More info !!! LOL
