Well... I pulled the trigger on this:https://www.ebay.com/itm/Android-8-0...72.m2749.l2649

It was on sale for $419 and Ebay had 10% off yesterday so I ordered it and a bunch of other stuff for the install. Will let you guys know if it's any good once it gets here in 2 or 3 months. Ah shipping from China. I can say that it does not come with the 5m extension cable so I'll be making one myself. The listing is not clear about that but they emailed shortly after the purchase to inform me... and link to a listing of course.

Ugh.. why not go with the $300 XTRONS unit on Amazon? I love mine and it's a faster processor. Cancel this order and go with Amazon. You'll get better service to.

Same PX5 Octa core in both units. Bigger screen and different angle/format in this one. I can't wait to hear more.

They're all basically the same loaders and with the same hardware, performance differences should be negligible. The only real difference is the preferred screen size/physical format.

Because it looks like someone just glued a 9" tablet to the dash (no offence to anyone, it's just subjective) and it's just my humble opinion

I wish, I wish there was an OEM looking unit, w/o the DVD drive, it's an obsolete media with a bigger screen oem is 6.5, Android is only 7".

I haven't found a pic that really shows it well, but this is pretty close. I agree that it's far from OE in appearance, but I will take the larger screen any day. After I got used to aiming a little 'higher' than the area of the screen I want to select, everything from typing to navigation became worlds better than OE. Everything except i-BUS interaction that is. That's still a band aid while they work to improve.

This is a pic of my alarm application. I have scripts setup that I fire off when I am a couple streets from home. They set the thermostats, open the gate, and disarm the alarm. Those events trigger lights inside and out, so my house is well lit when I drive up with no waiting the gate/garage door. Very cool.

I have a similar version from Seicane that I would no recommend buying from due to the language barrier, lack of customer services and no US contact. Pictures follows:
