My message was that the GT2.0 is a plug and play replacement for the GT1.0 so if you wanted to add DVD & Bluetooth capability the upgrade is easy.

What he means is you buy a new unit and throw out or give away the one you have. When we say plug and play we mean you can unplug the 1.0 unit you have, throw it away and plug in the new 2.0 genesis unit. There is no modification that needs to be done to your rv, the new genesis 2.0 will go into the space your current 1.0 unit occupies.

rawlus,

I think the question may be legitimate?

I've not found the Genesis brand online. I have found the Concertone ZX85 with pricing. It appears to have the same form factor as the Genesis 1.0 - 2.0 series.

I can only assume it is available through RV dealers or manufacturers.

IMO, The pricing on the ZX85 is pretty $$$. You really have to want Bluetooth and/or DVD playback to justify the cost of pitching out your existing unit. Overall, the 1.0 unit is a pretty good system and we are very satisfied with it.

If ours gets zapped by lightning, surge, etc., I think we would definitely replace it with the ZX85 or its future equivalent.

From what I can tell with Internet research, "Genesis" is a sub-branded "Concertone" made for forest river products... Sort of a licensed version. So it may be difficult to obtain a Genesis branded model except out of the parts department at your local forest river dealer. But you should be able to get the equivalent Concertone branded unit just about anywhere, including Crutchfield.com

Jensen radios also has jensenrvdirect.com with several options if you wish to move away from concertone products. Seems most of these products, with exception of concertone/genesis originate with the same for manufacturer operating under licensing deals with various brands it seems. Welcome to Parkway


If I had to do it over again, I think I'd look into marine options, I have no use for cd/DVD with all the other options and a smaller unit with vibration and weatherproof features is a nice plus for less money from a more reputable audio brand. The Sony CDX-H910UI is a slick looking unit. I can install my own speaker controls if needed.
