Verdict

Amazing screen. If u have a android phone it will be so easy for you to learn everything. Working fast like a brand new android phone. Easy to install and no mess with a wires. Just plug in to original wires as good to go. Fits perfect. If you are looking for screen for your chevy or gmc that thing is perfect because oem screen cost 600-1200$ depends used or brand new and oem don’t have so good quality of picture and I don’t like cd for navi because it’s always old and never updating. Here you got google maps which always working perfect and a lot of apps like Facebook, Netflix, pandora, whatever you wanna use in your car. Sounds work the way better than with oem.

Features

  • *Developed from widely used & stable Android Marshmallow OS, deeply customized & optimized to let it perform better in vehicles. Lots of vehicle-based features - Specific FM/AM Radio tuner w/ RDS, preset max 4*45W amplifier with higher 4*24w RMS power out, AUX/Backup camera/dash camera input, Bluetooth handsfree, steering wheel key control & more (no DVD/CD Player,however). Quick Booting - Start the car & access system within 2 seconds!
  • *If your car has factory Steering Wheel key Control feature (shorted for SWC,based on resistive analog signal input only; if your car happens to use digital CANBUS data signal, and you can find applicable digital-to-resistive converter), SWC feature can still be retained. WiFi receiption & builtin microphone have been significantly improved. The reception of ATOTO WiFi can be comparable to some phones! Drivers do not have to yell to the car stereo to talk with the other one!
  • *Dual Bluetooth chips inside not only work as BT handsfree /media streaming, but also connect to phone's BT tethering to access internet, send/receive files, and even connect to BT gamepad /mouse &OBD. Built in GPS module, pre-installed map engine app: Google Maps(free),users need to download map data of certain area from the app setting for offline navigation. Waze/HERE WeGo/Tomtom are also supported. All ATOTO optional accessories/parts can be found here:https://www.amazon.com/atoto
  • *Unlimited Micro USB Drive/ Micro SD storage supported (256GB confirmed OK). Which model of A6 series fits my need best?

Summary

ATOTO A6 PRO Android Car Stereo

Performance and Use

  • More than 300 apps from Google Play Store have been tested installable on ATOTO A6 Series, especially media/entertainment apps and apps in category of “Auto & Vehicles”. However, very few apps that are specified only working on phone based Soc chip will not be installable (such as Android Auto).
  • Thanks to Ultra external Wi-Fi antenna (Silver plated copper wire) included in the package, WiFi reception has been significantly improved so now Google voice can work smoothly and the reception of ATOTO WiFi can be comparable to some smartphones!
  • Most users need to run online map or stream music online on Android car stereo and these requirements do not need high bandwidth(less than100kb/s), Bluetooth tethering connection is enough . Actually the records we tested with iPhone 7 Plus via Bluetooth connection are up to 180kb/s!
  • WiFi hot spot option from smartphone has much higher power consumption than Bluetooth tethering option. Phone battery will last much longer via Bluetooth tethering connection;

 

Verdict

SOUND QUALITY: The built in equalizer is not amazing, BUT, if you have an app like Spotify you can set the stereo equalizer to Natural or Flat and then turn on the equalizer in Spotify, and the sound is beautiful. As soon as my wife showed me that I could do that, the difference was like night and day. I should also add that I installed a brand new set of Boss speakers in my truck, but no sub-woofer setup.

DISPLAY/TOUCHSCREEN QUALITY: Significantly better than the touchscreen stereo I previously had in my truck. It’s basically like having an Android tablet built in to the stereo. When using Google Maps, the text is clear and sharp. I can even read my email, or a pdf document comfortably. The touchscreen is very responsive, and doesn’t require an excessive amount of pressure.

VIDEO QUALITY: I frequently use this to watch YouTube, or Hulu during my lunch breaks, and as before it’s just like watching it on a small laptop or tablet screen.

GPS ACCURACY: The GPS antenna is great, accurate, and there’s almost no lag in position update. What my wife and I will typically do is turn on the mobile hot spot in our phones so that we can connect the stereo to internet, and then use Google Maps to load the directions and start the navigation. I’ve done this many times for long trips, and it’s worked out great every time. Even without an internet connection, you can still use the map and GPS to navigate yourself, which is something we’ve also done once or twice while stuck out in the woods.

WI-FI CONNECTION: I can easily pickup the Wi-Fi signal sitting in the driveway near our home, and download updates, etc… Though usually I just turn the hot spot in my phone, and the connection is fast and reliable.

BLUETOOTH CONNECTION: I’ve never had an issue with this unit and connecting to my Android phone or my wife’s iPhone, it’s easy to setup and modify connections, and connects immediately. I previously had issues with with my old stereo and the Bluetooth connection randomly dropping/disconnecting and then reconnecting, but I haven’t had any problems with this one.

OTHER: So there are other attachments you can buy to use with this stereo. A Backup Camera, Front Facing Camera, OBDII Bluetooth Reader, and in my case an Amplified Data Interface to keep the stereo on until you open the cab doors. Eventually I would like to install all of these things.

CUSTOMER SERVICE: They have great customer service, I got a full response within 24-48 hrs, and they even took the time to send me links to additional components that I might need for my particular install. I’m not sure why they’ve gotten some poor reviews for their customer service or helpfulness, they honestly do seem to care about doing whatever they can to help you.

OVERALL RECOMMENDATION: Having used this unit heavily over the last month and a half, I can say that I wholeheartedly recommend buying this unit. If you’ve got a used or older vehicle that you love, but don’t really want to put a 700$ stereo in it, but still want to have all the features of a newer stereo, this unit is perfect for you. I’m very happy with my purchase, and if this unit ever died on me in the future, I would still come back and buy another one. Also, this stereo WILL fit with the Metra Dash kit for the 2002-2005 Dodge Ram 1500s, you’ll just have to cut out some more plastic on the inside of the dash so the unit slides all the way back properly.

Verdict

Final thoughts – Two keys to making this unit work:
1 – Use steering wheel controls to handle many of the functions of the device.
2 – Get the right apps and install them on the home screen for easy access.

In summary – although I went a different route than originally planned, this device works great. I am quite happy with it; actually happier than I thought it would be; navigation with Waze is near perfect, and music with Pandora is quite good. The 10 inch screen shows everything in nice big fonts and icons. I feel like I have a new car, even though I have over 100,000 miles on it. I would not trade the car or the YODY for anything else. A solid 5 stars for the YODY 10 inch screen head unit; it has performed flawlessly to date, with no complaints other than the few negatives listed above.

Summary

Eonon Octa Core GA7180A Android head unit Review

Performance and Use

Supports EasyConnection

Supports steering wheel control, handbrake, button light control, reverse, ACC, parking trajectory, parking radar, security alert, seat heating, curtain switch.

Supports video output from all modes

Supports WiFi, 4G dongle(NOT INCLUDED)

Supports Eonon R0008 dashcam(NOT INCLUDED)

 

Verdict

1. Excellent feature set:
a. Good hardware – 4GB RAM + 32GB Flash storage
b. Android 8.0 – not the latest but recent enough
c. Plenty of inputs – bluetooth, usb x3, av, dedicated backup camera, dvr
d. Wifi support
2. Install
Was relatively easy, face plate fits my BMW 328i pretty well
The backup camera wiring took the longest time, but that’s not related to this radio.

Areas to improve:
(I know this may not be completely fair to list as cons because these are about extra mile features that are good to have):
1. The WIFI reception can improve, mine can detect most of the WIFI hotspots my phone does under the same condition, even with the antenna – not sure why that’s hard to achieve
2. I wish the steering wheel entertainment switch button can be customized to my own list of apps. Right now it cycles through a list of which only radio is useful to me. The bluetooth input, DVR, map are not in the list

Over all it modernized my 2009 BMW 328i with state of art functionality and a good look as well. Highly recommended.
