I'm new here, but I already have a bad experience with Eonon after receiving the D5150 in the first week of November.
Since one month I'm trying to get them to ship me the missing/wrong parts for my unit. These are essential to the operation of it, I'm talking about the GPS antenna and iPod connector cable, none came in the box.
The advertisement also had a picture of the nice new remote, which I don't really care about, but I received a big, bulky remote with more buttons than I can think of being necessary.
To make a long story short, their customer support is incredibly slow and now unresponsive. Silence.
I am not a proud owner of an oversized, overpriced CD player, since I can't hook up the FM antenna without modifying an adapter that you guys pointed out in another post (thank you!), and refuse to order it until EONON finally decides to get back to me on this.
I filed a claim with Paypal, let's see how this works out since I'm dealing with a Hong Kong seller...
I tried to call their 818-number from the website support tab, no luck here either!

I truly hope that I can rattle some cages here and I want to make you guys understand what is happening behind the scenes of this product. I honestly like it and I believe once it is complete it will make me smile, but so far is it a BIG disappointment!
Hi SdG64, sorry to hear that. However, don't worry, Eonon team will help you. Firstly, only the unit shipped out after Nov.24, 2013 has NFC URC included. If you received the unit at the beginning of Nov, then it only has the normal remote. Hope you can kindly understand it. Thanks
Meanwhile, regarding missing the GPS antenna and iPod cable, would you kindly PM me the order number? I am Carlos, you can contact me directly, i will check it for you and give you a satisfied answer then.

I had tried to order the D5150 before I found out about the group buy and the new model. There was some kind of hang up with processing my credit card. I guess this was actually some good luck. The order for the D5150 is cancelled. Made a new order for the GM5150 using Paypal. PM sent. Thanks.

3rd Group Buy for Eonon D5150 + GM5150 BMW E46 Car GPS with Screen Mirroring &N

What exactly is the difference in the UI between the GM and D versions? Is one better than the other (apart from the added features). For example, is the input source switching bug still present on the GM unit (always different upon startup) are there any known bugs with the GM? Aka I'd like to see a video of the UI to compare. Why exactly are they not just the same UI? Doesn't the GM look similar to the 5113 model? If so that would lead me to believe that the GMs UI is not better. I was just curious as to what exactly are the differences in the units. (APART from the screen mirroring). You mentioned there is a different screen in the two units? What else is different. I'm sure other people have these questions.

TR4G I asked about the same. No one here knows about bugs of GM, because no one here used it yet, but its just arriving to the first users. About UI its really quit similar with D5113, probably bit updated and in GM has no 3D screen. Oh and theres no yet any video presenting The GMs UI Here is what Carlos said about advantage and dissadvantafe of UI in another thread:

EONON is not the Chinese company you mentioned, because we know the word of mouth is more important than a brand. Also that is why we provide 2 year warranty for our products.

The UI cannot be updated by the software doesn't mean our R&D are laziness or we don't want spend money to support you guys. I have checked with the product department, the main reason is the supplier of the LCD screen was changed. The new product GM5150 has the different LCD screen as the D5150 we shipped out before and now. That is why the UI cannot be updated by the software. We also want to update it for you but we tested, there is 80% probability to have touch screen issue and 30% probability to have blue screen & crash issues after updated.
I have explained it to the forum customers who owned the old version D5165, all of them can understand it. Hope you can kindly understand it too.


Meanwhile, actually, every UI has the Advantages and disadvantages. The different of "Old-(D5113)-UI" and "New-(GM5150)-UI is the new one has 3 colors available and it is not 3D UI. Compared to the current UI of D5150, it will looks more OEM, but as daki_bmw mentioned, the current UI of D5150 is easier for you guys to navigate when driving and also there is the background picture optional which made you car more fashionable.
Both UI are good to use. For me, if update the current UI to OEM one will cause troubles, I will choose to keep the current stable UI. Thanks a lot!

Oh man. So now I have to decide between GM and D versions. Not sure which I would prefer. Why did you choose GM?

Hi TR4G-, thanks for reply. Firstly, all the unit ( including GM5150 and D5150) we have now don't have the issue you mentioned. Don't worry. Meanwhile, GM5150 = D5150 (version now)+ Screen Mirroring+ BMW UI, but i have latest news that the next batch of D5150 also will have BMW UI integrated. It will be around the middle of next month. So if you want the new updated BMW UI but don't need the screen mirroring function, maybe you can wait for the next version of D5150 with new UI. But i still suggest you take GM5150, since it is much more powerful than D5150. Especially, we have GB now, you can save a lot, Thanks!

Is the new UI a software upgrade? Something those of us that bought previous versions can upgrade?

Very interested in this question also and can it be shipped from UK (Europe etc. ) to avoid taxes and what we in Sweden call "moms". Since our tax here in Sweden are 18% on price + shipping and then on top we pay "moms" thats 25% of the price also, sadly the price sky rockets fast compaired to original price. I know this issue has been adressed before but fail to remember the solution. I would be very happy to have this unit in my E46 330xi, but as it is now, its basiclly cheaper for me to buy a unit from a competitor since they sell within the european union ( no tax and "moms" extra for me )

Kind Regards,

I've had to pay around 100 for customs and tax. Still it was a lot cheaper than "expensive" units and a bit cheaper than "other" units (Hualingan, Enco, etc.) without any support and users feedback whatsoever...

Sorry to hear that m8 .

But taken to account the warrenty + the fact i can basiclly go to town and bash a door in ( the supplier is about 20km away ) if the unit is faulty or if i need help is worth abit also ofc, i really like the looks and community around the Eonon product, hope we can get a respons in the matter soon and come to a solution. .

Kind Regards,

Kind Regards,

I agree with this,if it was available to buy in the UK i would buy one today but the problem buying from Hong Kong if there is any faults in the unit the postage to return would cost me 90 GBP which is 40% of the unit price and there is 20% taxes to pay as well even though some people do get away with it.

Come on Eonon how about setting up a EU distributor for your European customers?

Are all the bugs worked out of the new GM5150 that were on the D5150? Such as the 90 degree ipod cable, included radio antenna, random aux input when starting and microphone sound quality?

Is there anything we else we need to buy other then the A/C relocation unit to install this?

I am tempted to get in on this group buy, how long will it be open for?

Thank you

Hi limpiabota809, i cannot sure about that at the moment. It should be around the beginning or the middle of Jan,2014. I am cannot sure about that at the moment. But once the next batch of D5150 with BMW UI integrated arrived, we will keep you informed then. Thanks a lot!
