    Idk much about those, but IMO- if you're going to do it- do it right. Go with a proper brand that has the reputation of being reliable..

    I would say for something that is easy to install, it may be worth it to try. But a navigation unit is not something easy to install. Get a unit from a reputable company.

    If you are going to spend the money, you should just go with something quality... Or hell, get one and tell us if they are any good!

    Our physical /dimensional lab occasionally gets micrometers or calipers in for calibration and the brand stamped on them is "China". Nothing else. You can probably guess what their opinion is on quality and repeatability, and reliability. And... who do you send them to for repair or get parts from????? China????????? Do you drop it off at the Chinese Embassy and get a repair ticket???:rofl:

    Note: A lot of low end test equipment such as hand held digital multimeters are manufactured in only a few facilities in Taiwan and China, yet you will see dozens of different branding for the same DMM. If you order enough they will even put your name on it. That's why you buy Fluke DMM's and not Tenma DMM's. You know what what your getting. I would definitely shy away from any generic looking nav set mfr'd in the pacific rim. Nothing wrong with Pacific rim mfr'ing, just go with the brands that you are familiar with like Pioneer for example.
