Given what the development would cost and the limited market - it's not bad - as long as the software quality and reliability is up there. Nice to see someone develop something for the older Jeeps!



Navigation seems to think there's a road through those bushes though...

Will do. I'll post a pic either late tonight or tomorrow evening. A bunch of forum members seem to be happy with them. I figured for the price I would give them a shot. The wicked cheap (autozone halogen style) ones I currently have kinda suck.

Comes stock with some offroad trails pre-loaded. Believe me -- the trail was there. That's up near June Lake in the high sierras... some great wheeling there.

re: older Jeeps -- they're coming out with the TJ1000 soon... that's for older TJ's (with the square corner 1.5 DIN head units).

I could see spending a G on the radio, but much more is just over kill.

Man I drive an lj... no way am I going to invest in a 1200 radio thats going to be exposed to my apartment complex with the top down or doors off. I dont like leaving my 75 dollar cb in it let alone this prize. Its nice but completely impractical for me at least.

This came up in another forum a while back (or another thread in this forum?). Either way...

Short answer -- cheap knock off with major quality issues running pirated software. Nowhere near the same thing. It's like buying a fake Rolex off the street. Insane Audio is the real deal.

Long answer --

While we do some assembly here in Southern California, we source some products overseas. It's taken us over a year and a half in R&D to build the TJ1001 and do it right. A while back, we were working with different factories in China to build key hardware components. In our first prototype we were working with one factory in particular but continued to have major quality problems so we ended up switching factories altogether. (We are now working with an ISO9001 certified factory). Despite the fact that we have a non disclosure agreement with the first factory, we learned the hard way that these things are virtually impossible to enforce in China. It appears as if they are now trying to sell something very similar to our design and even had the balls to ship them using pirated versions of our software. The operating system, the user interface and the GPS software are all illegal copies. While these pirated versions will never legally be sold here in the states (but you can find 'em on Chinese web sites), that's ultimately our problem to deal with.

Here is what matters from a consumer’s perspective – These units have MAJOR quality issues. The biggest one being that they have a tendency to overheat. Due to an internal amp wiring issue, they won’t work with any of the Jeep upgraded stereo systems (a factory option on a large number of vehicles). They failed our shock testing and have various other quality issues from the CD player down to the knobs themselves. The TV tuner won’t work here in the US. In addition, they are running pirated software that is several versions old (no 3d topography), the maps will be outdated right out of the gate and users will NEVER be able to download map updates (ever). Again – these are knock-offs taken from an early prototype of our designs and are being manufactured by a factory that was unable to meet our quality standards.

The bottom line is that the Insane Audio units are top quality and we are backing them with a 12 month / 12,000 mile warranty. In addition, our GPS software comes with the guaranteed latest maps with full support -- users can go online and update them anytime they want.

Sorry for the long winded response and I certainly am not attempting to be all "salesy" in this forum... really, I wanted to show off some cool pictures of my Jeep with the unit in the dash showing an offroad trail go into the sierra nevada mountains.

Thanks for the explanation minus rant. It is good to see that you have very specific examples snd I, for one, really appreciate that. I really want one. I bought some newfangled xterra or some such from Crutchfield. It was the only 1.5 din that was not a POS in either performance or looks. The I have a crummy looking install because there is space around the escutcheon that shows bare metal. Not happy!

You might have a new customer. Just have to justify not using waze on my ipad. GPS in 10" is pretty tough to give up!

I didn't mean to rant... that whole situation just kinda pisses all of us off over here at Insane Audio.

Anyway... since I really was only trying to share some cool photos, I'll get back in the spirit of this thread and show off a new fastback hardtop that I put on my LJ. It's from Wild Boar products and while I didn't do it to my Jeep "today"... it was only a couple of weeks ago.

The rear window rattles a little more then I'd like despite the fact that I've put on a ton of extra weatherstripping... but overall I REALLY like this top. It's awesome to see another manufacturer spending R&D on products for older Jeeps (and for the LJ -- an even more limited market). Mad props to Wild Boar. It's got a friggin' sun roof for Pete's sake! Awesome! The thing is built well and has a nice carpet liner on the interior.

My plan is to leave it on for the winter, and leave it in my shed all summer.



(and this is the cleanest you'll ever see my Jeep... I washed it right before I put the top on! )
