I found the press release for the unit on the Alpine website. I didn’t see specs just some overview info. https://www.alpine-usa.com/company/...ound-and-camera-systems-for-the-jeep-wrangler
At the very bottom there some of the key features listed. I was kinda wishing for something extra special from this head unit. I don't know if it would be worth the cost especially if you already have the 7 or 8" UConnect.

Looks cool, but do the two factory radio knobs lose their functionality?

I hope they release another version or lower the price. It sucks that the only upgrade available costs so much
