7023B android Head unit?

7023B is a generic MP5 player that can have any number of different brands. The Podofo 7023B is a current model, but the numbers (7203) identify this head unit.

The 7023B sales pitch boasts valuable features like a reversing or backing-up camera, steering wheel control support, FM radio, and various USB and TF slots.

Cheap

You can pick up the 7023B very cheaply, too cheap from around $20 from the country of manufacture. You get a remote control and a paper manual, but only fundamental ISO leads will require much work.

Chipset

The 7023B head unit is based on the Windows C200S chipset, which is not an Android chip.

Not Android

Despite all the hints that this could run Android as its operating system, it does not. The C200S is a Windows CE (WINCE) chipset, and the 7023B runs Windows CE. The problem with Wince is that it is effectively a dead OS—no updates, no new apps, and no longer supported by Microsoft.

Run Android?

The Wince 7023B headunit will never be able to run Android, and there are not enough RAM or clock cycles to run Android. This is firmly a Windows CE-only device, and it is limited to running WINCE apps, no Android apps will ever run on it.

MP5 Player

The sellers are not allowed to call the 7032B an Android headunit because it is not. They can show the green Android guy and mention the Android version that implies Android capability, but there is no doubt the 7032B is just an MP5 player, windows CE, and that’s all.

Overview

The 7023B is a car MP5 player that runs only Windows CE programs. It can mirror Android phone screens, but it is just a dumb screen when used as a mirror. An FM radio is built in, and the 7032B can connect to a reversing camera. But it can not be compared to an Android headunit because they are two very different devices.

The 7023B may do what you need if you only need a headunit that won’t do apps. But why not get one that can do everything the 7023B can do and run apps from the play store, like free Google Maps or Spotify for music streaming?
