Phoenix (Tesla style radio)

Hi Everyone -
I was looking to upgrade my radio and came across this phoenix big screen tesla style radio.

They do have the head unit for the Q50/60 etc but nothing for G,

Here is the link to get more information https://phoenixandroidradios.com/col.../Make_Infiniti

Let see how many people would be interested in it. I've already reached out to the company for the G37 head unit and now I am waiting back on their reply.

I am going to put a poll to see the interest level so maybe we can get a group buy going later on

Please feel free to rely on and comment

Thanks

I don't have the cash flow for this right now, but I breezed through that facebook group and the fact that Thomas P. is on there makes me feel that it's not quite as sketchy. He has made some great products for G owners (the Airlift cupholder inserts that look absolutely amazing). He has the sick pumpkin G coupe if you ever see it on the G37 facebook groups (the one with pumpkin projectors, sick orange vinyl wrap and carbon fiber goodies). I met him at a cars and coffee and he is a legit guy. If he's a part of a group buy, I would be willing to trust it. That being said, always be thorough and don't get scammed. If you don't feel it's legit, don't spend your money. I am really interested to see where this goes though, as this could really update the interior significantly.

yeah, i'm no guinea pig ... i'l wait and see how the reviews are.

at this point, i'm probably only gonna have the G for another 2-3 years, so not sure i want to drop the coin on that thing.

It seems to me that the company from that facebook link works with many other companies
here is the same HU under a different name
https://www.phoenixautomotiveinc.com...r-infiniti-g37

While I am very interested in getting this HU I just can't justify the price tag. somethings to note that you will lose xm radio unless you buy the extra module.

XM is garbage, unless you listen to a lot of talk radio i guess. the sound quality on music is horrible - last time i had a free preview, i LOL'd at how bad it sounded.

my next car might be a Q60 RS ... with no Android Auto/Carplay in it (not until 2020?), i may consider a Tesla-style HU for that if i get one.

I usually don't buy first generation products, I wait for the kinks to be worked out but the phoenix radio is popular in the toyota forums and i've seens their seconds generation spec is actually our first generation so that tells me that phoenix actually learned from other brand/make/model and didnt cheap out on creating this HU, but I am always skeptical so I'll wait for the thunder to die out before making the move.

So I been watching these radios, Seems like a few of the 1st gen have had glitches.. No one has done a long use review of the 2nd gens. I have only seen one video in a Nissan, and the radio worked fine, after the the owner called tech.
The thing that bothers me, is the customer service in the company seems to suck. That is not a good thing when your spending $800 now down to $600 on a headunit.
I still would like to get one and probably will after the holidays. If I do I will do a full install, then like a 6 months review on it.
