vw 8 inch android 4.4 car dvd player

 

I was very hesitate to buy this stereo based on one review, but then I found a YouTube video with a live demo.

 
In short: it's a cool quad core Android car stereo. It's kind of like having a tablet in your car, with a few add-ons like radio and a DVD player. I also have a backup camera hooked up (I could use the pre-installed one instead of having to use theirs). Apps install like on any other Android system. So far I've installed Pandora radio and Waze. There is a built-in GPS, but if you have a hotspot function on your smartphone, you can use Google Maps or Waze as well. 
 
The VW Android car DVD player's installation was pretty straightforward in my 2011 Tiguan SE. The supplied wire harness fits perfectly, and I was able to reuse the existing radio antenna, GPS antenna and backup camera. The camera itself works immediately.
