OK, I think I have this figured out.
Speaker Selector A (Speakers ON): Dash Right & Left. Rear Right & Left. (none of the driver side speakers will be on) See Picture
Speaker Selector B: Dash will be off. Front Right-Front Left-Rear right-Rear left will all be on. There is no "center" channel in stereo audio so this will never have audio. Having said that...on the radio screen, lower left side is the "field selector". If you select this you can turn on the center speaker I did not see if that actually produced audio in while in stereo or if this only comes on while you have a 5.1 signal.

No, I think off is off and ON is ON. That just happens to be the screen shot I took.

Look at it this way though...every other Class C it only takes about 60 seconds...because all it is is a radio.

This is "radio, iPod dock, weather station, DVD player, surround sound receiver, hands free bluetooth device, GPS navigator, photo player, awesomeness amplifier and babysitter"
(OK, I may have exaggerated the last 2)

You can still take 60 seconds and just learn the radio part and be just like everyone else...(VCR clock blinking) but now you know how to work all that other stuff.

Sometimes I don't even tell people that the TV can play through the surround speakers...it's tech overload for some people. The sales guys just stare at me blank faced. Which is why I posted the video. Thanks for watching...it's like Alice and the rabbit hole...how deep do you want to go?

As jamiller45 states to PM him if you are having problems with the M4 GPS cutting out. I did this and he sent me the contact info promptly. I then contacted Magnadyne via email and they phoned me immediately with the answer and solution. They stated that one of their three programming computers was missing a few lines of data. This explains why some are okay. They were sending me a SD card with the complete firmware fix and instructions.

I am very impressed with their extremely quick response and their professionalism.

Took my first trip with the Magnadyne in my new Solera. In three words, the Magnadyne sucks. I could explain the dozen things that are either broken, illogical or simply dysfunctional, but I won't bore you. So today I went to Car Toys (www.cartoys.com) to scope out my options. l will be replacing the Magnadyne with a top end Pioneer unit. I can't wait to get the Magnadyne out of my RV.

The learning curve on the Magnadyne is steep. It does lots of things. A few of them are done differently than some oem radios. I've been at it for 4 months now and am feeling pretty comfortable with it now. It is amazing how many features it has. Reading and rereading the manual has helped. I'm pleased with it overall.

M4-lcd

Don, I have amazed the Magnadyne reps recounting the issues with my M4. One tech told me he can't wait to get his hands on it to figure out what went wrong. Replacement radio comes in next week. I am no expert on these radios, but feel if I can get a working unit I will be happy with what it offers.
