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

this needs to happen for me to buy this. only reason why im getting it.

Any way of getting BT to work on the android side? maybe a root or app?

The Android board doesn't have a bluetooth chipset, nor are there drivers built into the kernel for bluetooth. That doesn't matter, though, because Torque Pro supports USB OBDII readers, and they work fine with the B046.

Quick question about this unit, and bare with me because I'm just getting my toes wet as far as knowledge is this area. From what ive read, this unit does come with navigation capability but what I don't get is how you make it work without using the phone's Bluetooth nav or whatever. I just want regular navigation capability from the unit itself and I don't have any interest in all the phone stuff. Let me know if someone can explain a little better. Thanks.

I really don't understand what you are reffering at when you say "phone's bluetooth nav", but...this unit has (as well as any other GPS enabled phone, OR any other stand alone GPS unit, OR any other OEM car navigation for that matter):
-GPS chip
-operating system / platform (WinCE, Android, Symbian, linux, etc...)
-GPS software based on correct platform, which is on microCD card
-GPS antenna

well that sucks. maybe i will wait for the next product then. because that is HUGE to me, i would rather just build in a tablet.

The usb obd2 is going to be in my way with it sticking out so far and now it will waste a USB when the unit only has 2

Basically I just wanted to know if it had the stand alone gps navigation which you said it does. Also, since it uses the navigation via sd card, Can you remove the sd card and put in your own sd card with music on it and play the music on the unit from the sd card or will removing the nav sd card make the navigation then not work?

Everyone using a usb obd2 to veiw torque at all times, how does it not get in your way when shifting?

Has anyone connected a usb camera to the android side for torque track recorder?


Also do widgets work on android?

The unit has two SD card slots - one is used by "nav side" (WinCE or Android, depending on version) and the other is "radio side". Usually, people use nav side one for GPS software and the radio side one for music, videos etc. But, if you really really want that, you can use nav side for listening music. You can put (if you have storage space) nav software and music on one SD card. In any case you have to locate nav software executable and choose the correct path to it. The rest of the space you can use for music, in which case you need WinCE/Android music player app. I don't think a lot of people bother with that. Most use "radio side" and its respective SD card slot for MP3 files.

Last time I checked, bare price was $320 (no shipping, no paypal fees, no SD card with nav softaware, no backup camera, no fakra cable (if you need one), no customs tax (if you happen to have no luck)). Don't know about US, but shipping to Europe (tracked) is around $80, paypal fees are around 5% (?) (5% x $400 = $20), most of people opt for card with szenco's nav software (probably as a backup, just in case your favourite one doesnt work or you can't make it work) - $10. So, now we are talking $430.
