The best part is you have to remove the head unit to get at the SD card to update the software. Like I'm going to do that every time they release a new version.

I use our TomTom or Garmin GPS when needed.
The micro SD card in the Jensen that we are running now is right in the upper right hand corner of the front (behind a little tiny cover). I have verified that myself.

Can you post a picture of the Jensen with the SD card in the back???

You are correct sir. I went out and had a look tonight and to my surprise that little cover with the model number on it can be removed to expose an SD card slot.

I must have read on here that it was in the back of the unit and never bothered looking for it after that. I'll have to play around tomorrow and see how current the map is on this unit.

Thanks very much for pointing that out.

I personally have never been a fan of the built in GPS systems. They're never really up to date and in my experience if you try to buy one device that does everything you end up with a device that doesn't do anything very good.
These Magnadyne systems are cute and they fill the hole in the dash but if you want much more you're going to want to upgrade. Its the same as most other stock radios.
In 1 year I went through 2 magnadynes. Didnt care for either one of them.

The class C had a grounding issue with the chassis. Dealer swapped out the first one, which wasnt the issue. So they hotwired it to the battery, I just had to turn it off when I was not on power. The second blew when I kept blowing awing fuses. Guess the chassis ground didnt fix it. Magnadyne was happy to talk with me on the phone, even though they couldnt troubleshoot it either,

*update*
the charger/converter will ruin batteries if left plugged into power for days at a time. too small of wires for too long of a run, voltage drop something or other....

driver side wall replaced due to water damage. picked it up with the leak.

in wall slide out not functioning correctly. been at the dealer getting "fixed" for about two months....

I don't care that there were issues, what bothers me is to having the rv to use.

We have looked for reviews on line but have not found much to base a rather large decision on. I would appreciate any thoughts or concerns.
Thanks in advance,

Hi Gill:

I just picked up my 2016 Sunseeker. I would HIGHLY recommend you read my post on the list of problems I had when I picked it up. Lots of great advice.

Bottom line, when you go to pick up the RV, don't plan on handing over the check. Go through it with a fine tooth comb, drive it and create a list of all the repairs it needs. There will most likely be many. Then tell them when the repairs are done you will be happy to pay for the RV. Don't do the "WE OWE" list.

Bill
