Motevo Radio

I upgraded my speakers and added an amp but decided to retain the factory head unit just because I do not like how aftermarket units look, they always stand out and never really fit in with the rest of the interior of the car.

The other day I came across the Motevo GTV GMC1 which apparently is a direct drop in for the factory radio. It has navigation, ipod integration, rado, cd, and usb capabilities. It sounds like a cool unit.

I have one friend who has heard that Motevo is a good brand, but he has never even seen one of the units. Has anyone had any experience with this brand or this specific unit?

Thanks in advance,
Alex

I'm like you, I like the factory headunit and always think aftermarkets look weird. Though, I don't think I'd pay $750 for a radio... aftermarket or not. I've never heard of the company, but it does look extremely nice though.

Colors may match, but I'm willing to bet that if the average person who knew anything about cars looked at it, they would immediately know that it wasn't factory. I'm going for a super clean, sleeper look for my car.

Yeah, I saw that, its an interesting idea. But thats not what I am trying to acomplish with the radio. Replacing a head unit has more than a cosmetic effect, it adds features (nav & ipod) as well as improving sound quality if you get a good one.
