I emailed Eric at Auxmod about the release date for the Auxmod Advance and this is his reply...Looks like maybe March as a release date...Cross your fingers and knock on wood..

"Hi Gil,

We're actually running slow - surprise. We're on a new board revision, and
have made major changes to our module to make it more versatile. We're
planning on getting a release going soon. I'm aiming for March, and I think
it's do-able. I'll definitely keep you posted.

Thanks for your interest in AuxMod!

Regards,

Eric"

It's not just a cable, it's a card that's integrating with your HU and convincing it there's another device plugged in there. Also the advanced is far more..... advanced than the basic. ;)

Let's see, it was August, then November, then January, now March. At this rate, I'll be ready to get rid of my 3 before it's available.

From that message, it looks like they're tweaking it. There's a point when you should say 'enough tweaking, let's sell this thing!'. I mean their research and production costs must be adding up, right?

I looked at the website for more information, but I'm still a bit confused. What does the Advanced do that the basic doesn't? Some one is really gonna have to break this down for me.

Thanks.

scroll up a couple posts- blue box. Its a side by side comparison

Advanced will show information on the LCD screen- basic wont.
Advanced will have patches for the firmware that can be installed via PC
Advanced has a built in GLI- fixes noise that could be caused by various components being grounded improperly/at bad locations.

By 'displays text' does that mean it will display my track listings? If so I'm very annoyed I didn't hold out for this!

If things work out like they want then it will display ID3 tag information..... So artist, album, song, etc.

Bullock is a tiny male cow. A bollock, as in "the dogs bollocks!" meaning good, and plain "bollocks" meaning bad! We've got some confusing slang.

Like you call em fanny packs while we call the same thing a bum bag because a fanny is a 'front bottom'...

If you bought the Basic, I think they're offering a credit for the Advanced when/if it's released.
