Well, here are the updates:
I’ve spoken with Jeff @ ARNAV, who was very responsive and helpful. When he didn’t have answers he called me back the same day. That is all I could ask for from a company.
ARNAV reports that in the next month or so there will be a new software and instruction/user’s manual updates. Included will be many changes recommended by those of us who have given them feedback.
At this point, other than their responsiveness on the telephone, nothing has really changed. The proof will be in the pudding. When the new installation & owner’s manuals and software come out, we will see.
So, I will raise them from a “D-” to a “C+” based solely on the responsiveness. (That is very important to me.) I stand by my previous recommendation of not purchasing the system today, but I will modify it as such:
“Don’t buy it today unless you are very technically oriented or just can’t wait. I would wait and see how the new manuals and software turn out.” I hope it will turn out well.
Other comments: ARNAV is aware that the screen is hard to remove or load new software into, but when originally designed, the radio stack “hump” was not there.
Reading between the lines and combining Jeff’s comments with some other thoughts I’ve seen posted here, YES, the screen is CAPABLE of a higher resolution, but there seems to be a compromise between resolution and processor speed and refresh rates.
I wil lcontinue to update the Forum as things change.
