I was curious if anyone has experience with installing a different MIB2 unit in their car after a retrofit and coding procedure was done. Top of my head says component protection at least. Anyone with first hand experience?

I have a delphi unit that is giving me no sound issues on start up. From what I read these are problematic to begin with. I found a technisat unit and am considering swapping out.

Otherwise I'm guessing its a full recode/fec/codec

I'm not sure... I've had Delphi (MIB II retrofit), Technisat (MIB II with nav retrofit) and now Harman (MIB 2.5, Discover Pro with 9.2" screen). I never had any issues with my Delphi but I remember reading about problems with them. Both my Technisat and Harman have been rock solid. I have not read about anyone having issues with Harman units but I suppose they are less prevalent. Quite possible I was just lucky to have stable software builds in all cases.
