Does it save last function? No random changing, GPS speed traps or camera annotation? Back up camera works? PIP is removable? CANBUS responds appropriately? Screen is viewable? Volume control is at appropriate level when adjusting? Etc...etc?

chilton88, you have already asked this questions and you know the answers..but to answer them again:

it does have random changing (it takes 2 seconds to change the mode, and it starts playing where it was last hear)
gps speed traps and camera annotations work flawlessly
it does have back up camera and it works flawlessly
pip is removable
CANBUS responds everytime the buttons are pressed
screen is very much viewable
volume control is higher than normal, but its easily adjusted (for example: for my unit level 2 is like level 4, so this is not an issue for me..)

these are minor things that are not a big deal for me.. this is with the wince unit,NOT the android

thank you for that information on your unit and experience. As you indicated it the OS that is the problem. Although, I know you are Lucky...because there are other folks having issues with WIN CE as well. These are the issues I described.

you guys should've ordered from a reputable seller in aliexpress or alibaba. szenco wasn't even a A+ seller.

Check out the # of orders and feedback on this one.

oh yeah..and i've had good business with the gold rated suppliers. actually had made quite a number of purchases already. my warranty was respected even with just providing my order reference number. i was not even expected to ship back the defective unit. i guess getting a good one is a hit or miss but purchasing from a reliable supplier would've been a better experience.

oh and all the HID projectors, bulbs, etc sold by theretrofitsource are also imported from there. just sharing.

hello all im new to the thread and website. just became a member today. i have a 2003 330xi with HK no nav. so i take it the wince is the better more reliable version? and just a few questions. will it work with HK? does it have sub outs so i can connect the rest od my system? and is there a wire on the harness for the amp? whats really he big differance between wince and android. dont know much about wince at all, what can i do with it? with the android version being more money and more problems i dont think i want to take the risk. over all i like the unit. thanks for the help, as i am a noob to this site. also i am an auto tech so tech speak or repairs or mods concerning this unit i should be able to handle lol!

welcome to the forums.. I do not have hk sound, but people have reported to work without issues. the difference is the OS system. on wince there;s really not much to do, its kind of simple, you can problably look into wince patch.com for more info.. as of right now the android has many issues, therefore wince version is recommended.

There has been some work/testing being done about the random at m3cutter forums. i'll give it a try a post back

Another question. You can use this unit with the HK sound system but you need to install a
LOC, where can I get one? And what's the issue with there being two different antennas in the back? And do I need to buy some other antenna adapter? I have a 2003 if it matters

Finaly ! Charles from szenco answered to me in skype !!! And he told me that to repair the unit i will have to send it back to them and pay all shipping costs or i can pay 250$ and they will send new android board to repalce the old one.
So it means,if your units android side is frozen in boot screen,you need to change android board !

just putting it out there. I purchased a Erisin ES1046B looks like this

http://www.erisin.com/erisin-es1046b...ml?cPath=13_64

Installed it and I like it's great. Got it for 348$ shipped from China to Canada.

The only problem is the volume control is not working anymore. The Erisin unit came with a Can-Bus Volume Control. It has a pink wire attached to it and the instructions are in like a really bad chinese english and don't make sense at all. Has anyone ever installed this unit and has the awnser to this problem ?

Thanks alot everyone !

Did you have to pay $250? I'll email Charles, but sometimes it takes them awhile to respond.

Glad to hear at least one of us with the Android issue has figured out a resolution.
