What do you guys think about this Android HU?

Some shopping around I came across this version on alixpress:



Basically bigger screen and no buttons.

I never liked the other one that basically looks like a tablet was glued on and another that you have to cut the dash and sits on top of the dash/ac vents.

I hardly use the buttons on the mk4 navi only because you have to otherwise steering control does everything I need.

So, this basically fit our cars (without NAVs) that doesn't require any cutting to the bracket? If so, I may go this route if and when the pixels get worse on my display.

Somehow it's in Spanish and guess what that's my first language. So I read all the specification, and it looks pretty good. As for cars with DSP you need to buy the 6m cord that goes all the way to your trunk to make everything work. If I could, I would buy it, but I can't at the moment. But if any of you guys purchase it, please post your opinion on how it works and all.

I like it! The posted link and their website is pretty confusing though. It would be nice to see a picture of what it looks like installed in an E53.

Hmmm.....this is something I would like to test. Just maybe not for a few months. I like the hardware/software specs, but hate how they are usually (always) exaggerated. Even with a quad-core, these things usually run like an old single-core. I hope this one is different. Sub'd for a tester. (If I don't end up getting one.)

The RAM is very low indeed for an Android system - 2GB. Even the latest Eonon for E53 has 4GB.
