Excellent stereo, i can only concur a hundred% with the great critiques under.
Excellent in car entertainment system, some ironing out needed. Having pondered over which unit to buy to replace the stock unit on my vw eos, this one stood out as i wanted one that had a large screen but still retained the control dials which are easier and safer to use than attempting to change radio channels or adjust volume whilst driving. You will need a trim removal tool or a stiff plastic ruler to lever out the trim surrounding your old unit, it’s then a question of undoing the 4 torque screws. Once old unit is removed, you may want to keep it as the ecu on your car is still coded for it, to sell it on you will need this code, i will put the stock unit back in if i sell my car. The trim then attaches back, the unit once installed looks like it was factory installed and looks very shiny and modern, remember the glare you will get from this will be horrendous, an antiglare screen protector may be the way to go, as i have a convertible, this would be an issue with any stereo and is not specific to this unityou get all the wiring harnesses with it, you get one with canbus and one without, although my car doesn’t have steering wheel controls, by using the wiring loom with canbus adaptor i can get the speed, rpm, fuel level etc, many apps out there which will take advantage of this wealth of information the modern car generates. The wiring harness is plug and play, the radio antenna has a twin fakra plug as well as a single blue wire, the twin fakra go into the wiring of the car’s antenna, the bullet end into the head unit, you will need to attach the single blue wire on the antenna to the blue wire labelled ant on the wiring loom with canbus adaptor, this boosts the fm/am signal as most vw cars use a diversity system to power the internal antenna, the vw units have some clever electronics in them to boost the radio signal, aftermarket units need additional power to the antenna to compensate, without connecting these 2 blue wires you will get no am and very poor fm, once connected, it’s as good as the original. I have routed the 2 usb cables into the glovebox where i can add a usb stick and leave my phone to charge. The micro sd ports are useful, however a usb port would have been better here, but this is just my preferencei have used usb debugging to sync my phone to the unit, also used hotspot to use my phones data when i am out and about, however can’t see using the unit for internet when i have my phone with me. I didn’t get any maps pre-loaded so connected up wifi and downloaded here maps, which you can use offline, many other sat nav apps available, you can then configure the hard nav button to open up your map program of choice. Phone links up fine, haven’t linked up the external mic yet as i’m waiting for a reversing camera to arrive, once that comes i will link them both up, the wiring for the reversing camera seems fairly straightforward, i’m not using the pumpkin reverse camera, but a unit that replaces the number plate light, for a better flush fit.

With it becoming a chinese ‘brand’ if i can set it like that. Was uncertain at to start with, with it currently being a chinese ‘brand’ if i can put it like that. It is really a excellent properly-put-jointly little bit of package. I are not able to fault it in any way. Equipped it to a 54 plate mk5 golf. And to believe i was hunting at applied kenwood models on ebay at £800+ 😰.
Well i have had the head unit now for over a month. This will be my detailed review for the above unit, including the reversing camera and dvr. I purchased this for a 2007 volkswagen passat. First off the product was delivered in a quick time. Packaging was basic but did its job in keeping its contents clean and undamaged. All you have to do is pry off the trim unscrew 4 torx screws.
Fantastic bit of package for a 3rd of the cost of big brand name equal. . The product came effectively packaged and included almost everything which was demonstrated in the description. Installationi have installed mine into a 2009 (fifty nine) skoda octavia vrs. It was a tight squeeze with the canbus and all of the wires at the back again but it does go in. You will have to place the wires and adapters into all the out there nooks and crannies to get it. Also you will need to have a new fascia plate which autopumpkin offer at around £20. Other than the limited squeeze it was a breeze to set up. Just pull the unique fascia from the beneath, pop it off and undo the initial head unit’s 4 torx screws and it will slide out unclip the back and reverse the method to set up the pumpkin unit. If you might be car utilizes this process it is a must that you get the adapter.

I did a lot of research and found this one for skoda fabia 2010. The unit looks like factory fitted. I could have flitted by myself but preferred to be done by the mechanic. Really pleased with the fitting. In the beginning there were certain questions to be familiar with it, all were responded by the seller. Only the reverse camera wasn’t proper fit. So i had to buy another camera from different seller.
