First off thank you to all who have supported this forum in anyway, all your experiences have helped me in my decisions.

I will see what I can do for making a custom ROM for this device when it comes..can anyone make a summary of all the problems the 4.0 version has?
I have created a new thread for the Android 4.04 version of the Enco B046. I go into a bit of detail about it here:

Do you think we may have a possibility for aftermarket PDC using using this info especially for the wince side of the board and hopefully android later? apparently they made a USB interface for carpc. I am wondering if one can be made for the enco units? I found this here:

Has anyone had any trouble with the built in microphone on WinCE version? I've had mine for about 1/2 a year but the built in mic went out a couple months ago but I have no idea how to fix it. I've heard the dynavins have an output for an external mic but I believe the encos don't. Does anyone have any ideas?

Got my unit, installed I in 45 minutes. I swear to God I've never been happier with my car (other then my Angel eyes).

Android side is fast, not laggy or anything, Bluetooth works excellent on other side (especially when playing music). Steering wheel controls work flawlessly, WiFi connects great...

The GPS is my only problem but I'll work on that another day. This is well worth the money. ($20 duty even though I was told I wouldn't pay anything) totals it to about $580 with backup camera and WiFi.

Like I said bad things at the moment are GPS, the fact that I played $20 (but it was worth it), and no instructions.

No it doesn't.infact after I got mine installed and put it in AUX It was upside down..had to pull it apart and turn the square camera around and had to drill the plastic so the wire would go in.


Anyhow after using this deck for a while I've notice a few things.

As mentioned the camera doesn't fit perfectly (2002 330i) and it was upside down..its plugged into aux but at least it works.

The radio reception isnt as good as stock sometimes its fine but most times its crappy.

GPS doesn't work

Boots into a random mode

Some apps can't be installed through market..such as Google chrome

Older iPods (my older nano) don't work , my new nano does work though

Steering wheel controls work 95% of the time. Other 5% its laggy or doesn't work.

Bluetooth doesn't work on android side. WiFi works great (tethering)


But everything else works great sound is great especially the bass (10 speaker HK)

So pretty much the bluetooth is useless?.I was going to buy this OBD 2 scanner bluetooth from amazon and install Torque apps.

Did you root your device? I been following this thread for android version and there is work around for the navi

Has anyone had a problem with the reverse camera no coming up automatically? Can anyone tell me how to wire it? It currently works but in the aux in and I have to switch to aux mode to use it and its not automatic.

My pink wires are splice together and the camera is working and connected p the reverse lights...what could be happening?
