Hollywood, Eonon is worthless when it comes to tech support. They simply don't understand what you're trying to accomplish. You can certainly try but I didn't get anywhere at all with them. I will get mine to work this weekend, I am pretty sure anyway. Then I'll post pics and stuff

Thanks for taking point on this HPM :thumb up:

The Eonon price point hits the mark so knowledgeable workarounds are very helpful to those of us seeking to upgrade to modern Info-tainment systems.

eonon

I cant beleive it , but i ran the "special"cable they had me buy, disconnected the harness from the radio in back of truck , went to local car audio and bought 12ft antenna cable, plugged in the other end ,and holy crap this thing fired up no problems whatsoever. The back light works on the knobs, bluetooth hooks right up, everything
I spent about 3-4hrs dis-assemblimg the vehicle before i had to leave for sons baseball game ,but it works !!!
Tomorrow i plan on hooking up reverse camera , their gps antenna, and downloading gps on sd card ( not sure what to go with yet) I spoke to a rep online chat that recommended using 3g hot spot , loading gps on sd card and transferring , and something else i dont remember right now

Hi Hollywood,

That's encouraging news!

From whom did you purchase your unit? The Eonon NJ distributor or from them in China direct from their web site?

Yes, that special cable makes connection to the existing radio tuner under the rear floor area, just forward of the battery.

I have bookmarked this as my guide for when I tackle this project

This is the place in the rear where the special cable connects for factory nav vehicles

The Eonon unit to my knowledge does not work with DSP equipped vehicles.

Mike

Well, I "Re-booted" the system and now DVD is working. Can anybody tell me how to get my steering wheel controls to work again?

OK, I got it to work!!! will do a connections post later

I have a 2005 X5, with DSP and SUB. I have the large display control unit as the OEM stereo interface.

I just installed the EONON 5166 and it works!!
