Look at this DIY that may help you with your upgrade: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=245914

2) Does the Western Europe map come with Hungary?
I'm of no help here, maybe someone else can help you out

3) Can you also control the track skip function from the steering wheel?
Yes, you can control the track forward or backward with your steering wheel controls, even when I'm using Pandora thru my phone via Bluetooth I can use steering controls to skip forward to next song.

I have not been able to program the steering controls with other functions, like to answer the phone with the talk button or to hang up with the R/T. Has someone been able to do this? Eonon can you be of help? When I'm in the Steering program menu, it does not let me program any button at all, when I press desire button on steering wheel it will do its default function but not program at all.

None! I believe that is not even possible. GM5150 UI was not design with "apps" to be used with internet. All you can do is 1)use bluetooth and use your phones internet to access Pandora, Youtube or other apps that you'll want sound transmitted to the unit. 2) use Miracast, to mirror your phone screen and use your data internet plan to see/hear any app on the unit.

I think you mean that you can use your phone as a hotspot?? Anyhow, unit was not design to recognize a wifi signal and use it as an android unit would. D5150/GM5150 cannot connect to internet, period. Maybe this is something else Eonon could update in the future??

don't know what you mean here but if you are referring to the wifi antenna in the unit, it is used to connect your phone,tablet or device that supports Miracast and DLNA function, that is the only thing that the wifi antenna was design to do!

Still you got to agree that for the price and features, this is a good unit! at least in my opinion. It does need more updates, so keep those inputs coming and hopefully Eonon can step up! I'm still waiting to see if they can provide more UI colors to choose from other than the Red, Yellow and Blue. Hopefully a carbon fiber white or black.

Not exactly. The phone can be use like hotspot, but theres a option to share the internet by usb. By the connector I mean that the unit has in back usb cable for connect wifi/3g (optional). By the way I have GM5150 from 3 mounths and Im very happy with it, definetly worth the money. Just when i recognise that my phone can share with internet I thought it can be use with unit.

Oh OK, now I get what your saying! Sad to say but that USB wifi cable is actually useless when it comes to connecting the unit to the internet. I do not see a browser or a similar app/function in the unit to be usable with internet. I don't even know why such cable is supplied, I just tape it and left it alone.

Read this thread: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=990340 someone asked Eonon regarding this cable and they replied on post #18.

Hi Matt, for your this question, we have no map card for your country. However you can purchase it locally. Eonon GM5150/D5150 also can work with other map card, such as Kudos, IGO, Polnav and Sygic, only it can work with Windows CE6.0. Thanks

Hi SzarY, the rear USB cable is for upgrade but not 3G. Thanks for your understanding.

Can I plug new speakers in to this unit without changing existing cables?

Also what ohm does the unit output? (not sure if thats a silly question?)

Maybe you can elaborate more, what is it that you are trying to accomplish and what kind of speakers? coaxial, component, subs(some call them speakers)? are you upgrading your interior speakers? that would be just as simple as swapping old vs. new, or are you adding more speakers?

I don't think you should encounter a problem with coaxial speakers and how many ohms this unit puts out. If you haven't notice almost all in-dash stereo companies don't mention ohms in their units specs.

If you are going for component or subs, than you have to worry about ohms and how to wire your speakers with the use of an amp/s. Again, we need to know what speakers you are referring to and what is your goal.
