Got an email from Charles. It's got Android 4.04 and dual core processor and 1 gig ram. Does any have one of these new units? Do they have the same problems with reliability?

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 !

Same here...but I don't need internet, or android for that matter, in my car...I would need android version for one and one thing only - OBD info. But if it has 10% of problems of the old one, I don't want it.

EDIT: Oh, and what's the price?

As long as the radio side let's you use SD cards and flash drives for music and watch dvds and movie files. (What type can it play anyways)I don't know what else I would need android for other than the obd and just because its "cool". Not gonna be playing angry birds while driving LOL

New 4.04 Units

Hi, has anyone received one of the new 4.04 Android units?

I have unlimited data on my Galaxy S3 and want to use it as a WiFi tether for the Android unit in order to stream radio and use Google Maps for Nav. Can anyone confirm if this works and do I need a WiFi adaptor?

Thanks!

Hi guys, firstly thanks for all the invaluable information. I have read the complete Dynavin thread before I realised that the unit I purchased is a clone even though it was advertised as a Dynavin on the local buy and sell website, but that's another story! I have read this complete thread and it looks like the unit I got is this one, http://szalex.en.alibaba.com/product...avigation.html . It comes with iGo and the wifi worked straight away with a cheap wifi dongle. It also has the volume problem on the radio. My main issue is the start up screen, I know it may seem minor but it starts up with a picture of Hyacinth's! I'd like to change this if possible, any ideas? The unit has no remote control so not sure if there is a hidden factory menu. Thanks

Does yours have the new android software? 4.04? Is your volume problem related to having the HK system? I have found a line out converter made by someone and you can manually adjust the radio out put to the speakers to fix the volume problem

Thanks for the response. Not sure how to check if its the latest Android version. Sound issue is not related to HK, I've got whatever speakers came with the car, 04 320i.

Go to settings in the android side, go to settings and look for "about device" or "about phone". It's the same as a smart phone.
I think the line out converter will solve peoples volume loudness problems, even if you don't have the harmon/ kardon system

@juggalo79, the version of my unit is 2.3.3. Still can't change the startup screen though. I can change wallpaper but I want to change initial startup screen, not sure if it can be done.

Hi, I'm new here =)

I've bought a enco b046. But I have problems. When I hear music, it simply changes of the songs themselves. I have to press several times on dvd or usb so that it recognizes the dvd or usb.

what can be the problem? thank you

Hello all,

Based on the (long) thread it seems that the 046 (Android) has some sound level problems.

Apparently the wifi drivers problem have been sorted.

Does anyone have a feedback on the "new" model with android 4.0.4 new CPU and more RAM, to know if these sound issues have been sorted ?

I definitely want an Android system, I don't want a wince and I don't have an iphone

Thanks for the input

I'm seriously considering this if the new 4.04 android is better. What is the difference between b046 and b146?
