A few questions.

1. I am interested in this chinese dashboard kit. It has "USB and SD" slots, but are there no auxiliary slots?
i dont know anything about the chinese brand dash kit. but IMO, it looks like a cheap piece of junk. but i would assume there is an aux slot on it somewhere
2. For the GPS in the unit, would I have to buy some sort of GPS antenna? Does it come with one? Anybody know?
usually if you buy something with a gps already in it, it may have the antenna already with it. if not, then its not worth buying.
3. I know the stock system's amp is very weak....this system says it includes 4x45W amp. Does that mean it pushes 45 watts to each speaker? How many more watts is this than the factory amp?
i dont know about the stock system seeing as i got the lowest thing you could because i knew i would one day update my sound system. and im sure something from the factory isnt of the highest quality.
4. Would this be enough to make everything sound better? Or would I also need better speakers?
ive always thought if youre going to do something, you might as well do it right. that said, just upgrade everything
Thanks for ALL input in advance!

well it was a little pricy but worth every penny to get a head unit in there that you will like for years to come
