I ordered from another Chinese company in Shenzhen. I suspect there must be just one operation actually making them.
Some notes in case it helps. I had an old Win 32bit laptop with a serial port, which made it relatively easy.
1. I had a lot of trouble getting the connectors to mate to the Candi box etc. The spring loaded pin protectors were horribly out of tolerance. I wound up removing some of them to get a mate.
2. The display on the Candi Box never lit up - it does work though.
3. Finding the Saab specific software was much harder than I expected (along with the crack). You need the right version to get security access.
4. The main display on the unit went off after it warmed up. Not much response from the vendor, as expected. I wound up taking the unit apart and re-seating the display connector.
Overall worth the money!
