Looks great, I just don't understand why if you are bringing something new to the market why you wouldn't include Wireless Car Play/ Android Auto. I would have at least considered it in the future if it had it.

Thanks for the video. Hopefully you guys can get a look at the Insane Audio JL3001 aftermarket head unit, there isn't much info available on it yet. @JAY

Price of the Insane system is not nearly as insane as the Alpine system.

You pay for it with their giant cartoon logo, however. I considered one for my JK when the crappy factory 430n died for the second time (the last time out of warranty), but I couldn't look at that logo every day.

Does it have selectable tire fill alert...cause that would be a cool addition to my Jeep truck that was supposed to have it standard.

Thanks for the heads up. I have not yet seen the Insane system, just a picture of it. Will for certain check out the logo when I check out the system. This must be costing them insane lost sales due to a stupid sized logo.

We have a winner... for $2,000 msrp retail. At $3,000... not so much.

Does it have built in Android Auto if you pay for a data plan? That would be nice.

Price is worse when you factor that people that want an upgrade likely have stock speakers too. The speaker upgrade from Jeep was one of the better boxes I checked on the build sheet.

I’d be VERY interested but $3000 is just too much. At $2000 I’d give it serious consideration over the 8.4” UConnect.
