I have this same unit but I get no sound when I install?

Do you have any idea why I am not getting any sound out of my unit once I install it? I see it reading a cd as well as finding the radio stations but no sound comes out. Am I missing a step???

Thank you for your help!

I have an Eonon D5113U for a week, and it works good other than the known issues, like starting with random function/screen and loud radio.

Now I purchased a 4 channel Socoshe LOC unit and need some advices on installation.

My ride has HK system.

Firstly, I understand that after installing this LOC, most likely it will fix the loud radio problem, but how about the other functions like DVD, SD/USB, will the LOC cause these functions output be too low?

Secondly, where is the best place to install this LOC, should I install it inline after the head unit inside the dash or at the back truck where the OEM amp is?

Thanks.

Right after the stereo, I wonder if you use aftermarket amps doesn't this problem get resolved?

Thanks limpiabota809.

My ride has OEM HK system.

And now I am still waiting for more input from other users (before cutting 8 wires)to see what the LOC will affect the system, will it fix the radio problem and cause the DVD, SD/USB output be too low?

Other bad thing is that the price of the D5113U has dropped significantly since I purchased it, it's now only around $385, I lost almost $40.00 in two weeks.

Any input regarding the LOC will be appreciated.

It may affect the other outputs, whenever I ever used a noise filter of any kind one of my outputs would always be lower. I'm not saying that this will happen to you, it could just be my dumb luck.

Hey fanatics, I've been using this unit for about a week now and so far I find it to be quite solid. I have standard audio, not HK so I don't have the high gain issue. The only complaint is the standard random screen on startup.

Has anyone truly 'hacked' this or the Enco B146? I know about the WinCE mod but it seems quite pointless. I really like the iDrive style homescreen but theres a few things I'd like to fix like the time and date being too small and the SD card interface being hideous and difficult to scroll through.

OEM BMW I-Drive vs Eonon D5113 vs Eonon D5150 UI.


OEM BMW I-Drive



Eonon D5113



Eonon D5150



Eonon D5113 is more OEM look IMO.

In my D5113 when I try to input the address in GPS, the screen is actually a bit high and hard to see what I'm typing. Is there any way you can adjust screen?

If my memory serves me correctly in the settings there is a place to re adjust the screen... not in the GPS settings but in the windowsCE part of it.. before it loads the GPS program...

I agree with you 100% on that... but really whos going to spend any time on the main options..

you're always going to be in an input interface, radio, iPod, Nav etc so it doesn't bug me that much

+ you can change the back round...so just chuck a BMW logo in the background and call it a day
