I will use the Raxiom camera a lot more than the factory one.

The pictures below were taken this morning in low light conditions. They both are sharper than my phone camera picks up.

Factory.


Raxiom
Wow great comparison here! Thanks a bunch for posting these pics up wkayl. I actually forgot how the stock units looked, as I'm used to either the Raxiom unit or the regular radios. They really help show the quality of the Raxiom camera and head unit over stock.

Thanks again!

I bought one of these and overall I like it. However, I was wondering if there is some place to report bugs. I found a pretty annoying one that is easily reproduced.

It's a great unit for the price. Two notes that buyers need to know as the AM website does not tell you this. (1) Lifetime updates of the maps are not included and (2) there is no live traffic fed to the unit. Other than that, I love it but wish they would have connected live traffic like Garmin does.

Thanks for the quick review! I'm sure this will help future customers before purchasing as well. I'll also see what I can do to add a few notes to the product page!

Shane,
So are you confirming that maps updates are not included??? that was one of the reasons I purchased that unit.

At first I was under the impression the map updates were free. Since I don't own a 11-14 Mustang and don't have one of these units, I'm honestly not positive. However, I just sent an email to someone who would know. I'll get back to you tomorrow with the answer.

Sorry for the delay!

Shane

Wink Map updates and live traffic

I've had a number of conversations with Rosen and email exchanges with Naviextras.com and here is what I've discovered
(1) Go to Naviextras.com, set up an account selecting " UPDATES AND EXTRAS FOR YOUR ROSEN ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEMS INC.

ROSEN NAVIGATION H11/H12/H13/H14/H15"

(2) You have to download their "toolbox" software and attach your SD card where the maps are from the unit (tab under menu button right side of face of unit). It will then validate your maps, do a backup on your computer, and in my case, it did an update. I was told by Rosen that the first time you do this any update will be free and any in the future will be billable but I can't confirm that yet as this was my first connection. I will come back in a few months to check for updates but Rosen told me updates to the maps are only done every 12 months or so. Will have to wait and see what happens. When your unit is powering up, the first screen shows a progress bar in bottom left corner displaying www.naviextras.com and supposedly its checking your map currency but it never told me I needed an update and when I attached my SD card using their toolbox I got an update so I'm not really sure if that progress bar at startup is accurate at all.

(3) You get a short user guide with the unit but it doesn't contain much detail on the GPS operation. Go to Rosen for a user guide http://www.rosenelectronics.com/Owne...al_REV%20B.pdf

(4) I've triple checked the availability of a live traffic data source connected to the unit and NO LIVE TRAFFIC INFO IS AVAILABLE. This is important to me as I now have to use my Garmin if I need live traffic info fed to the GPS when I'm driving a planned route. There is "historical traffic" info on the unit but I can't find any use for is so I unchecked that box. I don't care what traffic was like last year, I need it now.

The unit was made by Rosen for AM so its sort of a "one off" just for those of us who can use it. I don't expect AM to do much more than they have done already with the installation procedures or documentation so we'll have to do that ourselves. Its a great unit with the only major flaw being the lack of live traffic.

From what I've found out, the updated maps are not free. Aside from the very first update, as nlions mentioned. Although, any fees with future map updates are minimum, so I wouldn't be too concerned with this IMO.

nlions really hit the nail on the head with details of the Raxiom Nav!

I don't have a Windows PC. I have a Mac. That Naviextras Toolbox software only runs on a Windows PC. How can I get the free updates? There was no indication on the AM website that I'd need a PC to fully utilize this unit and keep it up to date.

If Raxiom did come out with one of these that worked on non Sync cars that retained all of the features and was able to come in pretty close on the price as the Sync version, I'd jump on it pretty quick!

Did anybody have any issues installing this in a premium mustang with a 6 cd changer? If not, does everything else work properly except the CD player?

The camera quality is excellent. I realize why they can't put distance lines in it but without them you really have to use your normal distance judgment via mirrors to get a better perspective of where the rear bumper really is.

I bought one of these about 5 months ago from AM and had it professionally installed on my 2013GT. I had to have my car serviced (engine) from Ford and when I got it back 3July the backup camera was blurry even after I cleaned the lens and it took 30-45 seconds for the screen to turn on which was odd. As of today 8July the screen does not turn on at all after it worked this morning. I called American Muscle and they are shipping me a new one which is good... it just sucks that I'm not skilled enough to do the work so I have to come out of pocket to get it swapped out. Only thing Ford said they did was disconnect the battery to work on the engine.....so they cannot take blame I guess. Anyone else have this kind of issue with the screen not turning on at all or a all the sudden blurry backup camera? AM said it was a fried motherboard or something of that nature.

I thought I read somewhere that this unit will not work if you have the CD changer. Not sure why that would make a difference. I'd be willing to give up the changer for this unit, since I listen almost exclusively to my iTunes from my iPhone.

Default RAXIOM NAVI

After American muscle sending a new unit. ... the old one was unplugged then plugged back in and it worked so it needed to be reset so unless you want to take things apart and have to do this avoid unplugging your car battery. ...Ford had to though to fix the issue with my engine. If your still having an issue call American muscle to exchange it.... they helped me with no problem.

The unit does not have any "speaking" functionality that I am aware of.
