only usb and radio playback... No Bluetooth so it's quiet pointless as single dins could be had for 60 ish with Bluetooth and even cd. + For the price but this is very basic stereo. Single dins could be had for 40 pounds.

Surely you’re more limited by a USB as you have to update it constantly or get stuck with the same tunes?

Thats why we have Spotify 🤔

Most modern cars come with Double din headunits, so why would you buy a single din?
I haven't used cds for years lol
It has usb playback that's good enough and playback quality is good on pioneer stereos.

Heat op

To be honest without Bluetooth it makes it nearly useless for a large number of users. Don't think I know anyone who doesn't use solely Bluetooth for their in car audio. Even my dad uses it.

That's being said, if someone wants a unit for a rear camera and only uses the radio then could suit them

No dab?
Good brand had my pioneer for 8 years . No dab no blue tooth but for 99 good deal.

Got pre outs for sub and 6x9 and cam input all you really need as an essential player
I don't think no dab & BT is a dealbreaker - especially if you were to use a Roidmi with it ... Cam input is a big bonus for me --- hot from me

Might have been a good deal in 2009.
Lots of dab Bluetooth and android devices for all cars around £150

Not to mention u can buy a nexus 7 a few cables a make a better system yourself and aux into the cars existing port for about £100 all in.

And u get to keep the tablet
Great upgrade on any basic factory stereo! Pioneer Bluetooth audio is pretty unreliable in my experience anyway!

Not really. I have several USB drives I use. Plus 128gb holds a lot of music anyway.

OK. But the comment I replied to was suggesting everyone uses Bluetooth to listen to music. They require a data connection and a subscription service, which over the course of a year would cost more than the £99 you're spending on the unit I expect.
USB drives provide a stable medium for storing and playing music with no reliance on a data connection.

Just to add with an aux in you can plug phone in
I own one of these! Definitely worth the money

I'm curious to know what car still has a classic double din head unit. Every one I've seen for the last 10 years has been a manufacturer designed proprietary unit.

Google Music. Upload your own songs (up to 50,000) and stream. You can also easily make your own playlists.
Sure you need a data connection but I use that for my music playback as its far more convenient than maintaining a USB stick.

Yeah I use google music, but its stopped syncing as I have so much music (c150,000 tracks). Still, why stream which is in lower quality and relies on an internet connection. Not everyone gets good 4g everywhere they go.

I would have to agree here.

USB for music
Phone for handsfree calls / google maps (if no satnav), saves wasting all the space on your phone and it grinding to a halt or running into streaming issues

Theres pros and cons to both i suppose and depends on how fussed about it you are.

The biggest problem i have found with most OEM units is they cannot handle large capacity devices or fail to shuffle correctly!

with the android Just be sure to buy the fastest chipset you can with minimum 2gb Ram and also running a late version of Android as these headunits rarely if ever see an update.

Other than that the Chinese android headunits are fantastic and much better than an Android auto unit in android auto's current underdeveloped limited state.

Every streaming and Navigation app you can think of in your car as well as Handsfree calling, Wireless connectivity to your phone and reverse camera/dashcam storage etc...

Xtrons tend to be more expensive rebrands of the same headunits you can buy from Pumpkin/EinCar/Joying

I'd also pay a few quid more and buy from Amazon rather than china. I had one that decided to start overheating and locking up due to a heatsync design fault. Returning it to amazon was a LOT simpler than dealing with a chinese seller....
Will fit my 8th gen civic?

I said a large number of people not everyone. Most methods don't require a data connection (depending on what you want to use) and even if you do there is enough coverage to keep you going even in long black spots.

64GB 128GB and 256G storage options are available for most phones. You don't have to use a subscription option to use your phone for music, you can sync / store as music high quality audio on your phone as you like.

Everyone has their preference, but for me stepping into my car without taking my phone out of my pocket and listening to music I was just listening in the house is convenient, then once at work I can pick up where I left off without having to touch my phone.
If this had Bluetooth I would jump on it straight away... figuratively speaking

I didn't know xtrons are rebranded eincar. Are you sure? My Eincar double din I bought on a whim and it does the job with loads of features but it's not very good quality, e.g crashes occasionally, poor radio reception etc
outdated tat, with no bluetooth for calls, and won't regonise an iphone.

And its B stock with 28 days warranty

pretty much all of them are made by Two companies in China to spec/design by EinCar/Pumpkin/xtrons etc...

One company uses the designation MCTD as the device type, another uses MCTB.

Look in settings>About on your EinCar unit....bet one of the above is mentioned in kernel or firmware version.

The older dual core units with 1Gb Ram were very hit and miss and rather crash happy. The later octacore MTK or Quadcore Intel Sofia chipset versions all come with 2gb Ram and are way way better. Very worthwhile upgrading to If you like Android headunits but are fed up with an older one crashing.

Often simply changing the launcher will help a lot as well

This launcher is very popular and rightly so, its fast and nice and simple to use in the car. I use it myself

I will have a look at the firmware but I don't doubt you

You give me some hope in the search for a cheap well featured head unit, as I took a look at the spec of mine and check this beast out,!!!!!!!(forgive the resolution, it's a direct capture of the Amazon listing believe it or not!!)

As you indicate the manufacturing is all the same, do you have any advice or preference on models? If I could upgrade mine for cheap I would do so.

if its Android 7 or 8 then mirror link is native, a lot of the chinese ones only run android 4/5/6 which means they use their own app to mirror the screen, which doesnt work as well and uses USB connection.

that's a briliant idea. You could justify that £180 headunit which Uridium linked based on having a best in class traffic sat nav alone really.

I just use this app play.google.com/sto…pot


it enables your phones hotspot as soon as the phone connects to the car headunit with Bluetooth. My headunit then always has internet from my phone. also means my phone is always up and running as a hotspot for my kids to use incar as well.


I never bother with Mirrorlink stuff, just install the apps you want on the headset instead..



and for the times when my wife or someone else is driving my car i have one of the Three freedata sims in the stereo's 3G slot that gives 300Mb free data each month. This has always been enough for the odd google maps requirement if needed.
