    Avic N-1

    How much should installation cost (approx) for this head unit? Going in a chevy truck.

    I have been told 2000-2100 installed but I can buy it elsewhere for $1500 so, does it cost $500 to install one?

    Thanks.

    Rob

    $500 to install one is crazy talk.
    Id guess around $50-70 because of all the wiring

    Re: Avic N-1

    not so much the cost of the parts and stuff to do it... its just a pain in the *** to the installer. my buddy works for hh gregg and he doesnt install these for less than like $100-150 depending on who he's installing it for.

    Re: Avic N-1

    I can deal with 100-150. I can't see having to pay 400 or more though.

    Thanks

    Re: Avic N-1

    i think they are trying to jew you with the 400$ installation.. its not really "hard" per say, it just takes a lot of time and if you screw up any wires you just wasted ~1500$. try and talk them down and if not be like "i'll go buy it from somewhere else". most of the time this gets people to where you want 'em.

    Re: Avic N-1

    $2000 to have it put in by an authorized dealer/installer w/ top warranty available from Pioneer, or ~1000-1500 online for one that fell off the back of a truck- pick you poison

    Re: Avic N-1

    thats true at least if you get it installed by an authorized dealer you get a warranty on it. so even if they *** up they have to replace it . i cant remember who said it but its one of the greatest quotes ever used in car audio...

    "You get what you pay for".

    Re: Avic N-1

    Not for nothing, alot of people here take shots buying cheaper than cheap stuff non authorized, but $1000-2000 is alot of $$ to take a chance on

    If you got $1500 to invest into this thing, another week or two to accumulate more dough is much worth the sacrifice

    Re: Avic N-1

    I was actually doing them for $1550 installed. Plus tax of course. Although this was typically for a few select forums...

    Like posted above, definately spend the extra money for a dealer to install it, you may be able to shop around and get a better price, just a bit more traveling on your part. But youll have the piece of mind knowing that your covered by a warranty on the product. At least for the first year. To add to that *most shops will give you a lifetime warranty on their labor itself, so in the event something is wrong due to installation your covered there too. Although some may not want to admit it was their problem....
