Would be interested in a group buy option too.

Eonon, just looking at the radio specs and regions. Is Australia not supported anymore?

GA7150: China, Europe, Orit, Russia, America 1, America 2, Japan, Australia.

GA8150A: China***12289;Europe***12289;USA***12289;Southeast Asia***12289;South America***12289;Easter Europe***12289;Japan.

I'm interested in this but I have a question regarding the compatibility

I have a 2001 330CI with the business CD headunit with the cd changer as of now.

Edit: I just went ahead and got the radio.

My connector is a 17pin however I am missing 1 of the 4 pins that's "needed" for the eonon headunit, will it not fit my car then?

Hi Koalaman, thanks for your interests on our GB. Our head unit GA8150A support with radio reception in Australia. The radio frequency for Australia is similar with that of Europe. Thanks.

Just ordered mine now from Eonon UK!

Should be fine Robbie, have a look at ShopLife's video of his install on youtube, he has one of them missing too, mine's the exact same as his.
So my pin layout on my harness is like:

.o.
..
...
.o
....
...

. = Pin
o = Empty

(Sorry if that awful drawing makes no sense )

I have a GA7150A

Is updating these as simple as going to the Software Update in the settings or are they not supported for OTA like other manufacturers?

EONON:

Let's see these firmware updates. I received the 8150A and swapped my 7150A with it today. Problems:

1. There is ZERO car settings. I cannot adjust the rear camera guidelines, among other things. Looks like you took all that out with the 7.1.2 update. GA7150A had a bunch of customization settings. Your android version has most settings removed.

2. Fonts are INCONSISTENT! Very small in some places, and large in others. Using Android settings to adjust the font size didn't help at all. Google Maps, Spotify, Torque, etc. all have small fonts that cannot be adjusted using Android settings!

3. And the BIGGEST problem of them all: The unit REBOOTS each time I turn the car on. Not acceptable at all! Doesn't go into sleep mode for more than 2 min. GA7150 turned on instantly!

Damn... Not really sure why there's any need to change that stuff.
Should I refund? I haven't received it yet

I'd suggest waiting. They pushed out firmware updates that solved my problems with the previous unit. You'll have 60 days to return it if they don't come up with a solution (which is what I'll do).

Edit: I should give credit to Eonon though. This is a smoother experience than the GA7150A. No lag so far, and no force close.But that reboot time is unbearable!!!

The CPU and Ram are definitely not 'superior' to the Rockchips PX5 and Samsung Ram. Allwinner is known to have heating problems in their previous chips, and doesn't have as great of a reputation

The GA7150a already has the better hardware and is perfectly capable of being upgraded to Android 7.1 -- lol, any customers who are denied that update are being ripped off 100%
