3. When in iPod mode I don't think it shows album cover. (Not unless I didn't save it)

4. When in iPod take away the home button as there is one on the unit and replace with a up level button so you can go up a level.

5. When in iPod mode, if the album or track names are too long for the box they scroll slowly so you can see the full name.

6. Add a small clock in radio and iPod mode like on the home screen

7. When it turns on the unit starts playing music from my connected phone, I think it should go to the mode that was last used before switching off

8. The greyed out option in settings for the car data really would like to see this active.

9. More advanced equaliser settings, not really that essential for myself but guys with aftermarket speakers and subs may like the ability to fine tune.

10. More of a add on but would be cool if we could get dab (digital radio) perhaps a add on box via the tv port?


That's it for now, apart from that I am very pleased with the unit. It is value for money and can't see the need to purchase anything other than this unit as it is simply awesome.

Hi jaffaz32, thanks for your feedback and made so much suggestions. I will reflect it to P&P dept, and confirm whether we can make it in the future . And for the invalid options in settings, i have checked with R&D before, it will not be available in a short time. Thanks for understanding.

Hi A.TRN E46, yes, Anjoz mentioned it also. It is a good idea, i already reflected this suggestion to R&D. Thanks

The Pioneer X3500BT that I installed in my wife's car 2 years ago does this. PLEASE ADD!

2. Graphic EQ is needed. Very nice free algorithms are out there for your engineers to use. Please add this! The included EQ themes "presets" are terrible.

3. Highpass filter for main speakers and lowpass filter for sub with a crossover point. Carlos, you asked in the other thread what this means. A highpass filter allows you to set a threshold so that any frequencies below what you've selected are cut. This prevents the low frequencies from distorting the smaller speakers and allows for more intelligibility from the speakers. A low pass filter the similar to this, but allows the low frequencies to be isolated to the sub.

4. Please give us more colors/theme options. The current GUI with (mustard yellow, dingy red) looks cheap and generic in person. The blue is decent. Black and white would be pleasing. A matching OEM orange theme to match the LEDs would be nice. Maybe even a brushed aluminum, gunmetal, or carbon fiber theme would be good as well.

5. Need the ability for on-screen feedback when playing Bluetooth music from iPhone (artist, title, album, etc)

Hi faderinvader and beasted86, thanks for your suggestions. Some of them have been suggested before but i have collected the other new suggestions. Thanks

Hi guys, welcome to post the suggestions for D5150/GM5150 here. I will collect it and report to our P&P and R&D, but i cannot sure all of them will be adopted, since some of them are personal likes or minor. But for some useful ideas and suggestions we will take it into consideration. Thanks for your understanding

I've been using the GM5150 for about 2 months now and I have some suggestions.

1. As mentioned before general settings is labeled as "Genernal"

2. I have more than 6 radio stations I like to listen to, so it would be nice if I could cycle through FM1, 2,& 3 without having to hit "band"

3. As mentioned before the name of the current day overlaps onto the BMW logo on the home screen. I didn't notice it until I read this thread.

4. As mentioned before more colors than red, yellow and blue would be nice, but I think whichever color chosen should go onto the different "areas", like if I set blue as the home screen, then the radio screen, settings, DVD, miracast and all other screens should match.

5. Miracast does not work with my Moto X running android 4.4.2, but I read the team is working on it.

On a side note I keep getting an error message every morning. It goes away after a while, but it renders my screen unusable. The steering wheel controls still function. I cannot read it because it is not in English. I've uploaded it to imgur, so if someone could take a look that would be awesome.

I appreciate how you and Eonon is willing to work with your customers. Thank you!_nr_

I like Eonon, but personally I wouldn't buy it just yet. I do like the factory unit look, which is a big big plus. The amount of accessories and supported features is great.

Here is what would make me buy Eonon device in no time.
Better hardware. For example, Sumsung SoC chips are fairly cheap (arguable), but their performance also speaks for it. HardKernel is selling ODroid devices based off Samsung SoC, and currently their ODroid-U3 is selling for 65. The same SoC can be found on Galaxy S3 phones. It's performance blows away any car entertainment system away.
Up to date display. 800x480 display with resistive (can't confirm since it doesn't say anywhere on a website, but doubt that it it capactive) touch panel would be considered amazing couple years back. I think it is simply outdated, and having updated display would give a better experience. Even 1280x800 ips panel with 5 point capacitive multi-touch would be considered a huge upgrade over current specs.
Software. This one is fairly simple, Android. It has a huge app market, it is updated frequently, and it is easy to modify the system for your own device.

The hardware and licensing software would cost the same, if not cheaper, but surely R&D would eat up a lot. Redesigning a device doesn't happen overnight, therefore, I do understand that final cost of the product would be higher. I am okay with that.

Hey Carlos! Why does each mode screen (iPod, Bluetooth, etc) have different themes? There are different fonts. Different graphics. Different volume bars. It looks like a different person designed the GUI for each. The colors are terrible. It's like you used pre made templates for all of these. The Bluetooth GUI looks like a template that came from cheap DVD authoring software from 10 years ago. Are you familiar with the term "tacky"? That's how it looks. Tacky.

Hi jM2.me, firstly, i would like to say thank you for reply here. I know we still have a lot of work to improve our product, but sometimes, get everything as good as we can will cause higher cost. You guys cannot get the unit in such a good price now. But the electronic products develop very fast. Yes, i am sure you will buy Eonon in the future.

Hi faderinvader, do you mean the BMW UI? Many customers like it except the color. Could you kindly PM me more details? So that i can pass it to our P&P and R&D then. Thanks

Hi Parvaz, sorry that i am confused with your last question. Do you mean when you turn down the dimmer, the screen will become brighter? Or the dash light of your car will be brighter? Thanks
