Oh sure, put his name out there.
Now I'll owe my father in law even more dinners when we head up to Detroit at Christmas.
As an aside, the mygig is a great unit, capable of a LOT more than DCX then now Chrysler/(whatever they are called) will allow or would allow.
People are comparing the 'OEM' unit to pioneers and the like. There is a flaw with that. OEM units have CRAZY specs that are needed to be met. X seconds from turn on until sound, X seconds for this, X power draw. It's really almost impossible (has overheard some things) to put all the "features" and have it met the specs.
If you release an aftermarket unit, you don't have to deal with all the crazy OEM requirements.
Also, about the guy selling the manuals, if anyone wants one, I've got a digital copy you can have. And it's about 19$ cheaper.
But that email shipping is a PITA sometimes.
Also, ride in a "normal" convertible at highway speed. Then ride in even a JK with the top down, doors off at speed.
Tell me which is louder/easier to work with a hands free bit.
It goes back to the OEM bit. For an aftermarket unit you'll understand, "This won't work at 75 with no top/doors." But Jimmy the new jeep buyer, would NOT understand that, and suddenly the dealer is stuck with an unhappy customer or a returned unit.
