Eonon D5113U GPS DVD Player Installed - my thoughts

I bought something with the description like this "D5113U Eonon 7" HD Digital LCD Car GPS DVD Player for BMW E46 IPOD RDS 3D UI" for $400.00 shipped after submitting a best offer, no camera was included, just the radio, remote, connector cables, manual, antenna adapter etc.

- The installation was easy after watching a few vids from the TheTTBoyz on youtube and here:

I didn't follow everything they did like removing the pillar molding to route the nav receiver I just mounted it on the dash at that same location. It's good to see how to remove the vents and properly access the slot where the new radio will sit however.

That being said, the radio harness connected to the factory harness with no issue, I didn't need the additional 5M cable since I didn't have factory nav to begin with. They do supply both cables if you have the new or old version radio harness.

The biggest issue really was the FM antenna connection which is too long to push the radio back in as it hits the metal firewall with about an inch of the front protruding. I bought a right angle adapter to resolve this.

Enough said, here's a few pics of the installation, sound quality is very good, iphone integration is good with the cable - current playlist play/display only, blutetooth audio/telephone works seamlessly.

Sorry I didn't clean the car before taking any pics so some of this stuff will be a little grimy, forgive:

Trunk Wiring for the Reverse Camera - Drilling was required to get the camera rca and power casing from the outside to the inside of the trunk behind the trunk lid

Camera purchased separately on Ebay for about $20.00 shipped

It's been so cold that I couldn't get to wire up the camera to the front rca and rear power connections for about a week since I installed it, but today we had a heatwave - 40 degrees

PAC USB and Auxillary Input extension wires from Ebay - around $45 shipped for both but well worth the money for a "clean" install minus my grit and grime shown here...
