This thing is amazing. There is so much more you can do. There are some minor issues that can be resolved with a little perseverance.

Pros:

  • WiFi Tethering: This unit connects up fine to my cellphone and tethers perfectly, everytime, without fail.
  • Bluetooth: While the head unit is connected to cellphone's WiFi tether, it's also able to connect to both my cellphone's Bluetooth for audio and cell, as well as my Bluetooth OBDII unit which I use with the provided torque app.
  • Play Store: All apps work and I have not had any issues at all.
  • Radio: Signal in my part of the USA is fantastic. Sound is strong, and very little "hiss" for weaker stations.
  • DVD Player: Mine worked when tested, but I don't use it, so I can't comment extensively.
  • USB: I connected a 64 bit USB thumb drive and it has not given any issues.
  • 3G Dongle: I haven't used this, but from reading at XDA forums, there are some issues with powering the device. A powered USB hub fixes this issue.
  • GPS: iGo app is not my favorite, so I simply downloaded Waze, and changed the setting in the GPS settings of Android to use the Waze app when Navigation button is pressed. You can do this with any GPS app, such as Google maps, which worked perfectly well with the satellite view as well.

Cons:

  • Tuner: Looses presets occasionally. Not sure why yet. It's not a big issue for me.
  • Random: When I use certain apps, and don't close them before I turn off the car, they force close when the head unit restarts. Not a big deal, but something to be aware of.
  • Fitment: Unit is about 1/4" wider than USA standard double din head unit. You'll need to trim the bezel on your car to fit. If you don't want to do this, then this unit is not good for you.

In Summary

I have waited a long time for a head unit that could do everything I wanted it to do without issues. This unit does them all, with only very minor issues. All of which I feel will be resolved with future firmware and ROM releases. The manufacturers are constantly releasing updates and fixes, and are very hands on in the development and support. I highly recommend it !
