Just wanted to share my experience with the unit thus far.
I have a base model 2014 GT (non-sync). I bought the Gen2 unit and installed it. The fit and finish of the unit are great, gives the factory look which is what I was after. Install wasn't too bad, and took me about 4-5 hours. That includes running wires and installing the backup camera, mic, and sat antenna.
After a couple of days using the unit, I started noticing some glitches. The navigation would freeze (happened 4 times on a 2 hr trip), the back button on the nav screen took 3-4 presses before it would respond, and the weather button on the main screen would not update the weather. It showed the weather for the day I installed the unit, but would not update.
I got in touch with Alex from AM, and he advised me to call the Rossen tech line for help. I called Rossen with my concerns. I first told them about the weather app issue. Their response was, the weather function does not work, and I shouldn't have received a unit with that function. They agreed that the other two issues were a problem, and gave me an authorization number to get a replacement from AM.
I got back in touch with Alex, gave him the number, and told him about my conversation with Rossen. Alex had me another unit shipped out, and I received it 3 days later.
I swapped out the units, and noticed that the new one had a couple of differences. First, there is no weather button which is fine with me, as it didn't work anyway and is just not needed. I also noticed that some of the buttons on screen are a little bigger, and seem to respond better when pressed. I used the nav on a 4 hr trip over the weekend, and had no issues with it at all. Everything is working as it should at this point. Evidently, this one is a newer version than the previous.
I do like the maps app on my iPhone better, and I had planned on connecting my phone to the unit via hdmi and using it to navigate sometimes. I hooked it up, and can mirror my phone screen onto the unit, but the problem is that it won't let you use it while the car is in motion (safety feature). I would love to find a bypass for this if anyone has any ideas.
I am very happy with the new unit, and the customer service from AM.
