Ok for all those who are thinking of buying from jolly or charles do not do it.... If you are lucky you may get a unit that works. If it does not work then you are sol,,,, i bought one for my car and it was ok, bought a second unit for my other car and it arrived dead.

Sent them video of how the oem radio work fine in the car but their unit does not power on and not working and now they are ignoring my emails for the past three weeks.


I do not recommand these guys, if you need replacement you are on your own... There goes $460 down the drain

Like I said before, let people make their own choices. I'm extreme happy with my unit . You should know that buyin something directly from China there is no support, if you ever though there was then you made a huge mistake already .

I WAS thinking of getting the dynavin unit before coming across this enco unit. After reading all these pages now I dont want to get either! The dynavin unit seems legit and I dont mind paying $1200 for it. But then this enco unit comes out with better hardware, better software and better graphical interface at 1/3 the price at $460??? I dont mind paying a premium but that markup is ridiculous (now I feel like I would be taking it in the @$$). But then the enco unit has to have horrible support??? I dont mind putting $100 down on a table in Vegas but $460 on western union to china.................. is there a third option?

hey guys, ive had my unit for 3 months now. My gps has not worked since ive received it. I dont have a card reader or a pc and was wondering if anyone could download the most recent and reliable map program and put it onto an Sd card and send it to me. I will paypal you the money for the card, shipping, and gratuity for helping me out. Thanks in advance. Please PM me if you are interested in helping me out.

I don't think the issue is sending money to western union. You can always add $7 of insurance if you having that many doubts. The issue here is expect 0 support. Have some IT knowledge or at least have the need to learn

Do you even get signal in the first place? I could try to help you with the software but first you need to check if you even get signal. Otherwise it will be your GPS device that connects in the back.

When i click gps it goes straight to no signal. I once was able to go into the setting and check signal and i had bars. I think its software related though. Ive reset the unit, unplugged the antenna. The home screen comes up first then when i try to click an option it freezes and goes to no signal.

You can take the SD off and go check the signal in the settings. If your gps goes straight to signal try 2 things - take sd car off / disconnect battery for atleast 15min or disconncet unit. put a screenshot here of the signal. I want to make sure is not hardware related. Also do you mind Igo 8.0 or Igo 9.0?

The unit comes with 8.0 if you bought it from them with the sd card and then you will have to upgrade if . Better look and better performance overall

Ok, i did buy it from **********. So do you think you could supply me with the upgraded software if we rule out the antenna as being the issue?

Yea I can do that. I won't be able to send it to you online though. Is kinda big. You need at least a good sd card.

Before you do any of that, Please submit a screenshot of your GPS signal. No need to go through the whole stress of the SD card yet
