Is the Genesis 3.0 made by Concertone?

Hiya,

Just picked up my 2012 Windjammer 3008w and found this installed.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Hi Anne Marie,

I am not as certain as you. If you study the 690 and my device closely the display similarities and feature sets indicate the same software running in the box. Either that or the Genesis folks are doing a bang up knock off.

Either way, my unit is a well kept secret because Google knows nothing about a Genesis 3.0 RV unit.

We also have the Genesis 3.0 unit in our Rockwood 8293RKSS. Does anyone have any ideas about if you can get the audio from your TV to play through this thing?

Based on the pamphlet they provide, or maybe it's the manual... Anyway, there appears to be at least two paths for audio in from your television. If you have a Toshiba like mine, you have access to a Toslink digital audio output that can be shared with your Genesis to handle stereo and Surround audio that is available over the air. There also appear to be many analog audio inputs that would work, too.

When I get a rainy day I'm going to yank them both off the wall (tv and Genesis) and wire them properly. There should be an unused HDMI port on the back of the Genesis that can provide true HD to the TV set. And since the TV has two HDMI ports available, I'll drop an extension down to the cabinet below for other devices that I might want to add that support it.

According to the booklet, it even has Bluetooth connectivity to your phone for taking and making hands free phone calls as well as streaming music (if your phone supports it).

All sorts of interesting features.... But how long will it last?

I'm betting that is the new Concertone model. That thing looks too much like the ZX700 not to be. Ewwatson received the new model from Concertone but he referred to it as as GT 3.0. You may PM him and ask for a picture. Check out post 33 in this forum.

When you get around to doing that, you should be able to get audio and video via the HDMI cable. Kind of surprised, but then again kinda not that it wasn't wired completely\properly. I'm sure I'll be tweaking mine the weekend we take delivery.

So I have to pull both of these out to hook them up properly? Eeessschhh. I agree about the Bluetooth...a real nifty feature that I explored for about 10 minutes last night. Way too tired after spending a day and a half loading this puppy up with all of our gear for this weekend. Can't wait for our "shakedown" this weekend. Although I'm not a fan of camping on holiday weekends with all the "amateurs." I'm sure you know the type....mom & dad, 7 screaming kids and 10 of their friends, 4 cases of beer, heavy metal music, 2 big-as* barking dogs, etc. LOL!

I was able to sync my Blackberry with the Genesis unit last night. Very cool!! I can make and receive calls from the Genesis unit. Not a difficult process at all. I haven't investigated the surround issue any further yet. I'll keep you updated on that issue. Since we're camping this weekend, I'll have more time to devote to it.
