I took a bit of nail polish remover to the white text - more like the OEM look.
That looks much better without the white letters, great idea. Did you buy it off of alibaba or somewhere else? If you dont mind could you write a review of the units features and its overall quality? Im interested in getting one and these prices are even more enticing.

Seems to change every 5 minutes though, shipped units seem to look nothing like the (awful) adverts.

theres nothing wrong with it... infact its just as cheap as eBay alternatives... and theres a lot more potential with it... i say if its good (i'll await reviews) its most likely MORE than worth it... from my point of view... its LESS than half the price than the dynavin, it costs 330 for this... then 705 for the dynavin... its almost sold itself because it looks OEM enough... and the GUI is acceptable enough.. no issues there

I contacted the company and it is pretty sketchy when it comes to ordering...


payment method: Western Union or T/T bank transfer.

please pay to us first,and then we will send to you.

around 3-5days you will receive it by DHL.

Thanks!

Did you guys stop and think WHY this is so much cheaper than all the other units including the Dynavin?
Will wait now for all the complaint threads.

agreed that this company has a lot of devices, but assuming that they all operate on the same basic unit, and have different facias, and slightly different GUIs. This company COULD well have only recently started selling these products... therefore this could be a starting price to get their name known... then they will start charging prices that cause peoples eyes to water... either way, its worth a look in IMO.

its not going to be any worse than some of the cheap arse units i've seen on eBay, and they're not that bad, i've seen SOME pretty decent reviews of eBay units.

so personally i'm not writing the unit off as a solid competitor for the dynavin.

Hey its this kinda spending that is going to keep the world turning, and eventually cause China to become world leaders!

Based on what experience? And meager savings? Try less than 1/2 price, which is significant when you're talking about a $1000 head unit.

We've seen this with angel eyes and bumpers as well, and it turned out that they were coming off the same Chinese assembly line as the ones advertised here. I don't know if this is the case with these head units, but we will find out.

I'm grateful for those who have volunteered to be the guinea pig. This might end up being a great deal for a lot of us.

..and it's manufacturing facility is in the world renowned city for quality and design, Shenzhen,China, whereas this one is made the city that generates sub-par ebay quality goods, Shenzhen,China.
