    Link doesn't work

    Link doesn't work but I see the item number is 401214011007

    thats a cheap Double din car stereo, the cheap double din stereos all run a decrepid old version of Windows CE...AVOID

    The only touchscreen double din stereo's worth buying are the ones running android. you need quad core with at least 1gb of ram and Android 5.1 or higher.

    realistically you need to spend £150+ and even then I would never buy from eBay...stick to amazon as at least you can send it back If you have issues as these stereo's can be a little bit hit and miss.

    Get a good one though and they are brilliant, basically a full Android tablet in your dashboard. Think streaming music apps like Spotify, Amazon music etc...catch up TV apps when you are parked...Satnav like google Maps and TomTom.

    Fair. I was going to get one if my car passes it's mot in a few weeks. I'll stick to a single din one. All I want is a memory card slot hehe.

    It's for a focus 2001

    A double din won't fit in a mk1 focus anyway.
