The Jensen is also a newer system with the latest Bluetooth technology and an upgraded gps interface. Still iGo, but the Primo version. "Hands on" I have found it to be much more intuitive.

The Sirius thing became more of an issue. People see the "Sirius Ready" logo and assume it has it. That became very frustrating because that IS NOT our term...but Sirius' term. Very misleading in my book. When we originally bought that radio he had them take that logo off...but if you are licensed with Sirius they REQUIRE you to print that logo on. Customers would buy the unit, expect Sirius. Take it home and then it became "he said she said" between dealer salesperson and customer.

I still use the Magnadyne and have not had any issues with my model. The firmware updates have solved any issues that I did have. Then again, I never use the GPS since I always use TomTom on my iPhone. I just like having all my contacts in there already.
I am also considering the purchase of a 3011DS with the surround option. Are you saying the new units will only have 4 speakers instead of 5?

Proper placement for ALL the speakers in an RV is pretty much a crapshoot. Correct placement for TV/movie watching is usually different than for just listening to music.

Yes/No. The Jensen radio units will only have (6) speakers, not (7).

Magnadyne has (2) dash (2) front ceiling (2) rear ceiling (1) center ceiling
Jensen has (2) dash (2) front ceiling (2) rear ceiling

and really...rear/front are relative terms to the coach itself, not the viewing position.

I forgot about the 2 in the cab. I was meaning ceiling speakers and you answered that question. Thanks

Brian could you please see if you can narrow down when my unit will be ready. Hopefully weather has been better the last couple of weeks. Thanks in advance. Great news on the Jensen radio update.

Comes offline 4/9. Beyond that is where all the question marks come into play. It should land to the dealer in April. There are just too many variables to give an exact date.
1. does the unit come offline clean (as in no parts shortages).
2. If it does come off clean, can we get a driver on it right away.
3. if we get a driver on it right away how soon can the dealer PDI the unit and slot you in for a delivery.

As we get closer your best bet is to contact the dealer for an estimated pick up date.

Will do Brian. Glad to know offline date hasn't changed. Thanks.
