I have the D3 in my Escalade but found a crazy deal on a F90-Bt. Is the F90 better? Worse? Any opinion would help. If not, I am buying another D3. Thanks

I just installed a F90BT im my '06. Minus the wiring mess I love it. Did the bypass and turned off all the little beeps via a couple hacks and have ZERO complaints.

I am going to put this one in my Sierra. The wife likes her D3. What I have read, this seems to be a good unit. I am hoping to get more input....anyone else with input would be appreciated before I make this purchase. Thanks

I like mine f90. I updated it to load faster and hacked some of the fonts and screen options.

What do you mean by hack the fonts? How do you do the bypass to watch it while moving? I think I am going with this unit. Thanks

the F90 bt runs off of windows CE. You can load the files onto your SD card and modify them in your PC. Then reload the files back into the F90 with different fonts and colors and stuff. You can even change the sounds.

www.avic411.com Lots of good reading there.

to bypass it i think you move the cell mute wire a pin over or something and ground it. THere's a guide on avic411.

Avic411.com is like the bible for this thing. If you come up with an idea 99.9% chance someone on there already tried it and got it to work or not.

D3 is a great unit.

I'm looking at an F90 to replace my stock HU. If you decide to pass on it, mind sharing the crazy deal? :big_banana_Dance:

That crazy deal is gone. Dude emailed me to say he was offered $150 more than I offered him and he sold it, even though we had already made the deal! It's BS like that, that pisses me off. I am looking on Evil Bay now.

Well, I just got the F90BT. Where does the USB plug into? Do I have to buy an extra cable and run it in my glove box or where ever? How does the Bluetooth work? Is it pretty clear? That is one complaint I have with the D3....the BT does not work that great. Thanks
