4.0 out of 5 starsThis is a long, in depth reveiw...
ByTW Sanchezon May 14, 2015
Size: 6.95" Car Stereo|Verified Purchase
The following is an in-depth review of the “Pumpkin 2 Din Universal Car DVD GPS Navigation Pure Android 4.4 KitKat Stereo Head Unit. I installed this device about six weeks ago in my 2007 Jeep Commander. I bought this one because the one specifically designed for the Commander runs Windows CE and I didn’t really want that.

Price: $389.99

Shipping: Super-fast. It was shipped by DHL and arrived within a week of my ordering it.

BACKGROUND

This unit is a re-branded device manufactured by a company called “KLD” (shortened to “Klyde”) in China. There are several different resellers out there and AutoPumpkin is but one.

This unit is based on the RK3066 chip and has a screen resolution of 800 x 480.

There are two parts to the unit. The “MCU” is a “microcontroller” - a small computer on a single integrated circuit containing a processor core, memory, and programmable input/output peripherals. Program memory in the form of NOR flash or OTP ROM is also often included on chip, as well as a typically small amount of RAM. Microcontrollers are designed for embedded applications, in contrast to the microprocessors used in personal computers or other general purpose applications. (XDA Developer's Wiki, 2015)

This MCU is basically cut off from the Android OS. It contains “native” applications like the radio, the reverse camera viewer (which allows the camera to be available *before* Android loads), and (I assume) the Bluetooth control software although Bluetooth itself is provided on a daughter card inside the device.

So while it *is* an Android device and will load all of the Android apps – some may work or may not work the way you intend. And there is a whole thread of nearly 1500 some-odd posts on a website dedicated to these devices and “re-engineering” some of the features. More on both of these later.

OUT-OF-THE-BOX

1. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat and from what I’ve read, upgrading is not an option. If you click “settings” you will find the familiar screen, but if you choose some things like “Volume” you will find you have only one option – the overall volume of the device. There aren’t separate settings for things like “Notifications, Alarms, or Music”. For this device, volume is volume. So the settings are there, but vary. And it takes about the same amount of time to boot as a phone or tablet – around 30 to 45 seconds depending.

2. The launcher is a disappointment as well. The clock works, but the weather widget (at least I think that’s what it’s supposed to be) doesn’t work so you’re left with some weird lines all over the screen. You *can* change the launcher – more on that later.

3. iGo Primo is the navigation app and if you search the ‘net you can find plenty of ways to hack this up into something you like. I’m not going to discuss it here, but it’s a pretty cool app overall and if you don’t like it you can install something else as they all seem to work. The device comes with an external GPS antenna. It is designed to be installed on the outside of the vehicle (like the roof) but I put mine under the dash on top of where the radio mounts, and under the windshield. It works great. Just don’t put it under anything metal.

4. The radio app is a disappointment, but I don’t listen to the radio much so I don’t care. It works, and gets good reception, but it takes FOREVER to “translate” the song titles and station name info. And there are issues adding presets – they don’t always take. There are ways to upgrade at least the look of this, but the radio itself communicates with the MCU, so you can’t simply install your own radio app – unless you have WiFi access in your car and wish to use Internet radio.

5. The DVD player works great and has played every DVD I have tried in it so far. I did read of some people having trouble with it, but I haven’t had any. And there are a couple of extra “video out” cables so you can run monitors either outside or in the back or where ever you want.

6. There is an “AVIN” program and I assume this works with the “Aux/Video” inputs on the back of the device, but because I didn’t hook anything up to them, I can’t tell you how they work. Same with the old-school iPod hookup. I don’t have an iPod/iPhone so I can’t tell you about that.

7. Yes, this device supports WiFi! You can get a 3/4G dongle or you can simply get a device like the Verizon Jetpack. I created a Velcro mount point for my Jetpack and ran USB power to it so I can have my WiFi any time I want in my car. It works great and pretty much anywhere.

8. The unit has a built-in 4x50 watt amp with a software equalizer. I ran mine through another amp with a crossover, but I do use the equalizer. Like other native apps, it communicates directly with the MCU – most externally-installed ones will not, so your mileage may vary with them. I use PowerAmp for instance and while its EQ will work for whatever music it is playing, it does nothing for anything else…

9. Bluetooth: Hardware-wise, Bluetooth is supported by a daughter card inside the case. It communicates directly with the MCU *outside* of Android! Android can’t even see the Bluetooth. This is important because out of the box, the only dialer that will work with your Bluetooth-connected phone is the one on the stock Bluetooth app. Which is the worst disappointment on the device. If you’re buying this thinking you can install an “assistant” app that will voice dial your wife and let you voice a text message via Bluetooth like the fancy head units in the newer cars – Not so much. More on this later.

10. Microphones: The device has an “internal” mic in the upper left-hand corner. This mic is about 50% effective. When trying to use Bluetooth to talk, there is a ton of popping, buzzing, and clicking that is heard not only locally, but by the other person you’re speaking with. At times (more often than not) it’s un-usable. There is also a connector for an external mic, but connecting both of them has led some people to have interesting issues. More on this later…

11. The reverse camera interface works well. I bought a different camera than the one that came with it and I used a 2.4 GHz wireless transmitter/receiver rather than pulling a cable for it. I’m probably going to change this in the future as the wireless is prone to interference which messes up the picture.

12. There is a user manual with a wiring diagram. You can download it and view it, but much of it is “lost in translation” although you may find some nuggets of usefulness inside. Many of the pictures of interfaces look nothing like what you actually have on your device. And the “wiring diagram” is an image of the sticker on the top of the radio.

NOT USED/NOT REVIEWD

1. iPod/iPhone Connection

2. Steering wheel controls

3. DVR – This is in the future for me, but not there yet

INSTALLATION

My vehicle has CANBUS. There were no steering wheel controls however, and no on-board amplifier. I did have the “RAP” feature that allowed the head unit to retain power with the key turned off and the doors closed, and then would shut off power once the doors were closed.
I purchased a CANBUS adapter specifically designed for Chrysler/Jeeps. Your vehicle may or may not have one of these if you have CANBUS. If you don’t then you will (at least) need an adapter for the wiring harness of your vehicle. Once you have that, it will be a matter of matching label to label. If you do it correctly, everything will work the way it should. There is a danger – however – that you will fry your CANBUS and you don’t want that. So if you’re worried about that, you can bypass it but you will lose any functionality that it has including steering wheel controls.

So - the previous paragraph will get you hooked up as far as power, and stock speakers. It will not get you connection to anything video-related or an external amp. The backup camera gets wired to the “CAM IN” labeled RCA plug. There is a “VIDEO IN” labeled plug that is for the DVR camera (at least that’s what I think it is as it wouldn’t work when I tried using it as the backup camera input). There are two video outputs that you can run where you like, and there are (if you’re using an amp) four outputs for speakers and one for a sub-woofer. And the light blue wire labeled “AMP PWR” gets wired to the amp power-on connector (duh).

The bottom line is that the “universal” unit is *not* “plug and play” – I can’t imagine it being that way in *any* application on any vehicle. If cutting, crimping, splicing, soldering, and working with wires and electricity in small confined spaces scares you – don’t buy this or if you do, please have a professional install it for you.

APPS THAT WORK

1. RK3066 Head Unit Service App – This app is no doubt a must have. You simply *have* to use it. It does NOT require you to root the device for most features but it does so much that you need, but isn’t native to the device. It enables you to call via Bluetooth from Android apps that are configured to request it (think address books because none of the “Personal Assistant” apps will use it – trust me, I’ve tried them all). It allows you to re-map CANBUS buttons on steering wheel controls (if you have them). It allows you to load your music app on boot. It has a speed-controlled volume setting and a safe-volume-level setting as well. It was just released in April and like I said – you MUST have it.

2. Torque – I loaded Torque recently and have been using it to track all sorts of valuable information about my vehicle. I use the ScanTool OBDLink LX found here: https://www.scantool.net/obdlink-lx.html . For another $30 you can get the MX version that will “sleep” to help conserve your car battery – Not sure how much juice the little LED lights consume so I don’t know if it’s worth the extra cash. I have left mine without starting the car for a couple of days without issue but your experience may be different. If I am not going to be driving it for several days, I will unplug it and drop it in my console. There are cheaper OBD2 readers out there, but caveat emptor. In my opinion, this is a MUST. It’s one of the primary reasons for owning one of these head units.

3. PowerAmp – the built-in music app is junk pure and simple. You can load any of the players out there that you might be used to. I am a PowerAmp fan and it gets me everything I need and like and I am used to. Piece of advice: If you use PowerAmp, disable its EQ and pre-amp and use the on-board one.

4. Smart Launcher – I tried the Next Launcher and while it was okay, the 3D version didn’t work and I found that – for whatever reason – iGo crashed constantly when I was using it. Smart Launcher is clean, easy to navigate, and doesn’t cause other programs to crash.

APPS THAT DON’T WORK

1. Any of the “Personal Assistant” apps. These include AVX (Ava), Andy, Assistant, Jeannie, Robin, Indigo, Jarvis, and Skyvi. Part of the problem with this is related to the microphone issue (see the “Hardware Issues” section below) and part of the problem is with the way these apps are programmed. Any of them would likely work very well *if* they were programmed to use a Bluetooth-connected device for dialing. None of them are. All of them depend on the device having mobile phone network access – which it does not have, and cannot have (as far as I’m aware). You can have Internet access with either an external device like the Verizon Jetpack, or by using a USB dongle that supports 3/4G. But there is no way to have the device be a mobile phone. Now, what sucks is that the “RK3066 Head Unit Service App” has a feature built-in that allows Android apps to access the Bluetooth-connected phone and use it to dial. However, the only apps that I’ve found that work with it are Contact Manager/Phone Book type applications. In my case, “True Contacts” is the app that I use. It automatically syncs with my Google contacts, which syncs with my phone contacts – so everything is the same (the on-board contacts on the Bluetooth card only syncs when you tell it to). So while it works for the contact lists, the personal assistant apps will not use it. And that goes for texting as well – they will not use the Bluetooth phone for texting. Perhaps there is a way to force these to use Gmail or Google Talk something – I don’t know. To show them some love, I will say that many of the other features *do* work and allow you to do things with your device without taking your hands off the wheel. It’s up to you to try them and find one you like.

Please note that I have e-mailed all of the e-mail addresses listed as contacts for each of the Personal Assistant apps above and asked them about using the Bluetooth phone to dial – there has to be a way and I can’t see it being that complicated. I heard back from *one* of them – “Assistant (https://assistant.ai/)” – they said their app isn’t written that way but it may be added in future versions. Those of us who want this functionality would probably help ourselves by continuing to knock on the doors of those who write these programs – squeaky wheels and oil and all that.

2. eCar Pro – This was a shame because I like the interface of this program. It’s another OBD monitoring program but it’s primarily written for phones used in portrait mode. It has a landscape mode, but on these units, it will not display correctly. They tried to fix it for me, but the fix didn’t work. Hopefully they will keep trying

3. NEXT 3D Launcher – It works in 2D mode, but I found that when I was using it iGo would constantly crash. After replacing it with Smart Launcher, the crashing stopped. Correlation not causation, but hey – I tried it twice with the same results. Trying 3D mode failed because it’s in constant landscape mode.

HARDWARE ISSUES

1. The device isn’t a true “double din” device. It’s a few millimeters bigger. So any of the “installation kits” out there for your vehicle will require modifications to make them fit the head unit.

2. There is a lot of wiring. Use lots of wire loom, tape, and wire ties to keep it bundled or you won’t have room in your dash.

3. The internal mic doesn’t work well for Bluetooth. There is a *ton* of popping, cracking, and other interference. Reading the “XDA Developers” forum will show this caused by the way it’s wired to the Bluetooth card and the motherboard in parallel. There is an external microphone, but if you hook it up, they will both work poorly because they are *both* wired to the Bluetooth and motherboard – remember the Bluetooth card communicates with the MCU and its operating system – it doesn’t communicate with Android directly. Android uses the motherboard. So the manufacturer decided to kill two birds with one stone and wire a single mic to both places… And on this model they doubled-down and wired two mics to both places… This creates problems you can only imagine primary among them is that because Bluetooth doesn’t communicate with Android, there is no way for some apps to know that there is a Bluetooth call being made so they won’t do what you asked in that event – PowerAmp for instance will not pause what it’s playing. The volume will mute because the Bluetooth card uses the MCU to interrupt and mute it, but as far as PowerAmp is aware, it’s all good so your song isn’t paused, but continues to play while you’re on a call. And when you call your Personal Assistant app and hit that little button to talk to it, the music may or may not pause or diminish in volume because it may or may not be able to activate the mic and even if it does it may not hear what you say clearly or at all.

NOTE: There is a procedure on XDA Developers for putting a new 1/8th inch jack on the back of the device and wiring it directly to the Bluetooth card, and then removing a jumper on the motherboard so what the internal mic goes to Android, and the external goes to Bluetooth. Everyone who has done it says it works great and fixes the problem. I haven’t done it yet, but will probably do it at the end of the summer. I just don’t have time right now. Just be forewarned that without doing this, the Bluetooth can be unusable at times.

4. There is no way to remap the hardware keys on either side of the device and there is no way to change the color without pulling the cover and changing the bulbs.

5. There is no sensor on the device so there is no way to set the brightness to “auto” – this is a pain because as bright as you need it to be in the daytime, it doesn’t need to be that bright at night. I know some people have success with the “illum” wire from their CANBUS adjusting this – but I guess my car’s CANBUS doesn’t send that signal. I’d like to find a way to do it by time – the system knows by GPS that the sun is down where the device is, reduce the brightness by 50% or some user set parameter.

OVERALL

For me it’s a no-brainer. I’m a tinkerer and a hacker and I like things like this. The features are there and the price is right.

The unit itself is solid and pretty well-made. It’s got good sound and fed through my amp and speakers it is way more than I need. The backup camera works, the navigation software works, the DVD player works, the radio is passable, the Bluetooth is usable most of the time, and the fact that I can load all the apps I want and modify the interface is an added bonus.

Now all I need is for the “Personal Assistant” app developers to realize that there is a market for their apps to use a Bluetooth connected device as a gateway to a mobile network and I’ll be set.

For someone who wants it to be completely plug-and-play they might be better off paying twice as much for a name brand and having it installed at Best Buy or something. But I’m set.

5.0 out of 5 starsGreat stereo (View comments for more Info)
ByRaul's Reviewson November 11, 2016
Size: Android 6.0 without DVD|Verified Purchase
This review is based on unboxing the unit and installing the unit in my 2010 Jeep Wrangler, I used it one day so far, and it's just my initial thoughts. The unit is very easy to install and although there is no wiring diagram, all the wires are labeled and they match with the typical Car stereo wiring kit wire colors(I used a metra wiring kit). I removed my old aftermarket radio, cut the wires to reuse the wiring harness,and soldered the new wiring harness to my metra wiring harness, plugged it in and it was running. You will need wifi or a phone hotspot, also optionally you can use a usb 3g stick, in order to download and setup most the system stuff. I recommend updating google play services first thing if you plan on using google services in your vehicle, which means you gotta sign in and use the play store. I installed spotify and it streamed my music and I used maps and downloaded my offline maps, thats about it so far. The sound in my car compared to my Kenwood unit has improved a lot, my wife noticed it immediately she said the voices and music sounded clearer. I have a reverse camera that I intend to add to it and a dashcam that I'm not sure if I'm going to use yet, I use a android app called Carro Pro to do my dashcam and also monitor things in my car OBD wise, I haven't figured out how I'm going to wire things yet, so thats a weekend project for the future. I also have Torque Pro which is a superior OBD app that lets you check many things on your vehicle in conjunction with a bluetooth OBD monitor (sold seperately) which I haven't connected. So, basically I have an update for this review in the future when more things get connected but so far I love it. (Posted on 05/12/2016)
