I signed up for the PowerSource mailing/interest list quite a while ago. Unfortunately I never received any notice about the first infotainment system replacement release.

From the inquiries we have received, most people want a sub 1000 dollar infotainment replacement (which is even below the cost of the current CIU in hardware cost alone). This is simply not possible to produce at low volumes for the vehicle. We will continue to offer our beta infotaiment in conjunction with our battery pack and TOM's. We hope to offer a flash for existing CIU that will improve it that will be more cost effective.

For the batteries we have more orders than we can fill but are working through backlog

It's hard to get a decent car stereo system in the sub $1000 range. What is a ballpark figure for a CIU replacement?

The CIU replaced between parts labor and software will run you a minimum of $2600.00 main issue will be the availability of a CIU
No new CIUís have been produced since Fisker closed its doors and Karma Automotive is working off any stock they have left which by now has to be limited quantities. The CIUís I have hopefully will be worth a lot of money in a couple of years unless someone like Power Source can come up with a way to repair them or update the system for a reasonable amount of money.

Any progress on this? The Karma def needs an update to the CIU.
