My RV rep did not say any thing about the Pioneer being able to sync to a phone, it might, but he said the smart phone was the only nav option now. I did see a picture of the cobalt full body paint that a Forest River rep sent my rv rep. It was nice looking. I was expecting an all bluish overall color, but its not.

Thanks, but LOL, I've tried that NUMEROUS times - I'll even have some come up listed as 2017, but same interior.

Love having the in-dash NAV. Doesn't make sense that the reason was "high cost of map updates ". For one thing, all NAV map updates are pricey. But beyond that, there's really no great reason to ever get an update. My 2010 Honda has never been updated and we get around fine with it.

The real reason is the Jensen radio w/GPS is a very low end unit that many of us have been complaining about. It is nice to see the upgrade and that "they" listen to our complaints.

We have found a couple of HWTs that are not on ours,,, and from what I read you have to have a Sim Card reader,,, and you have to remove Nav from the dash to get to the Sim Card + pay $80 or so !!!

We bought a 2013 Sunseeker,,, software is 2010 !!!
Not Right !!!

The comment "The Jensen unit maybe better than our Magnadyne?" may be true but they are no where near the quality of a Pioneer or Kenwood.
Also you do not have to remove radio from dash to upgrade the GPS software on the Jensen.

That would be great !!!
But from what I read you do have to remove the Magnadyne !!!
The SD card is in the rear of the unit,,, even tho there is a card slot in the front,,, but I think that is for an mp3 ?????????

Here is a brochure of the Pioneer radio. It does sync up with a smart phone to use Navigation.
