Hey guys I got one of the latest unit, not sure if updates are provided for previous units by the manufacturer, but if anyone knows a way to extract the ROM from CE and Android, let me know, I am happy to dump them and post them up here.
I am not experimenting any issue with it, everything works fine. BT and all.
Mine is the B039, but thats the same as the B046 I would assume, hardware wise.

Update on Steering Wheel Controls/Random Boot

I gave up waiting on Jolly to send me a new red box, I even offered to buy it from Charles and he said no. I found a place on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=271047468908 called japan Internet shop, spoke to lady Elizabeth who sold me the power cable and the red box. I paid by paypal last week Thursday and received the items yesterday. I tried with the box first and it didnt work then I tried with New cable and box and it worked immediately. The problem is I now have the random boot problem. LOL The power cables look the same but I will take a closer look on the weekend.

Install RideRunner or other software

Hi I was wondering if anyone has used the B146 USB connector as an Enabled host controller for external devices? I have been researching this USB controller from MJS Gadgets to control the Sirius SCC1. You would need to install a software called Riderunner to view the Menu and stations or channels on Sirius.

Eonon B113u

This unit seems to have less issues with volumes, random switching, and navigation.
Anyone purchased this Eonon, with a website for tech support and installation, as well as a Facebook page, 2 year warranty and takes PayPal ?

I looked at people's posts on *********, plus the manufacturer or distributors website and Facebook pages. It seems they have more product support as well. I'm not an owner yet, but have been thinking of getting one. Although, I would like to learn more about the Win CE hack allowing you to enable USB host controller function so I can install a peripheral I had in mind such as the MJS SCC1 for satellite radio

Media player, WinCE Patch, Bluetooth

I'm a computer engineer and when and if I can be arsed I will look at what can be done to improve the standard interface, thought I would try the Wince patch to see if it would save me a job but it doesn't
(I've got the E139 too)

I also am highly disappointed in the WinCE Patch. The Win CE media players (which, I agree, are rubbish anyway) do not interact properly with the SatNav function. (It's not Petrut's fault, but don't expect much.)

The Chinese just need to get a decent software designer to make their media player decent. In its current state, its unusable and ugly.

Anyone fitted a Mic for Bluetooth?

BTW - anyone else found that even if the unit is OFF, a Bluetooth call wakes it up? (This is the reason, I believe, that the unit occasionally triggers my Alarm...)

Brian

So i did some searching last night and talked to someone at crutchfield and he said i should use a 4 channel LOC so im looking into that option. Any thoughts? Also still wondering if anyone knows how to connect it into the hk amp and run it from the back of my b146 to the loc. Thanks again if anyone can help.

@ bimer21- you have to understand that the D5113 runs on a Windows CE system and that it is essentially a B146 renamed according to Eonon. The B046 is an Anroid operating system. If you go to this other forum ********* you can find a bunch of opinions from people about the D5113. Its under the topic Eonon. You then decide by reading everyone's experience. Both the units have their ups and downs. Just keep reading and take notes.

like Chilton88, Do a little more research about the enco wince unit. But i can tell you that gps,cd,BT,rear camera,dvd,mini sd,usb, iPod, all work and are very convenient. The Only issues are: volume is higher than usual, and random boots..to me is not really an issue..

the android however, seems to have many problems in the software part..
