Also Citroen Jumper and the Peugeot Boxer vans
All these vans are based on the same platform and will use the same Android headunit.
A custom-fit android headunit for the Ducato/Jumper/Boxer vans will need a plastic fascia to make up for the curve of the dashboard. You will also need the CAN BUS adaptor to integrate the vehicle information into the Android headunit. Factory-fit cables are specific to the platform used to make the Ducato, Jumper, and Boxer vans.
Custom fascia for the van
A factory-style fascia with custom-made Ducato android headunits makes the finished installation look much more professional. It is only a small plastic curved molding, but these plastic moldings make a real difference to the ‘made to fit’ look over the ‘I made it fit’ look you see with the universals.
This Android Headunit is compatible with:
Universal Reversing Cameras,
360-degree camera views,
DAB+ Radio upgrade,
GPS Sat-Nav with Google Maps or Waze,
Aftermarket Steering Wheel Controls (SWC),
Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS),
OBD2 engine diagnostics,
4G Mobile Data,
Digital TV (DVB-T2).
All the Android Head Units come with wifi and GPS as standard built-in.
Bluetooth connectivity is essential for driving safely.
Reversing camera input is standard, and it can support the enhanced 360-degree 4-camera system for added visibility during tricky maneuvers.
THE CAN BUS box supplied with the custom-fit Ducato android headunits is programmed to speak the same language as your van. The Android integration becomes much closer to recognizing vehicle speed, lights on/off, remote steering wheel controls, and some factory-installed systems (depending on model). This automatic integration over the vehicle CAN BUS simplifies installation. No need to track down and splice into wires in the loom to pick up the signals the android headunit needs because they are covered by the CAN BUS.
Factory plugs and sockets
The custom-fit Ducato android headunit has factory plugs and sockets for quick and easy installation. Citroen Jumper and Peugeot Boxer use the same connections, and this, along with the CAN BUS box supplied, makes the installation much more straightforward. Some of the same the Ducato custom fit android headunit install is ‘plug and play.’
Specifications vary wildly in Android headunits; picking the right one can be difficult. Fakes and Junk are common and pass themselves off as a good purchase. Current higher specifications for a modern Android headunit that will run all the modern apps you need include the PX6 processor and 4 GB RAM.
common format, great processor
A speedy processor currently available for an Android headunit is the Rockchip PX6. The 10″ Android headunit models reviewed here use that processor. The 10″ screen format is widespread and is used with many different and much less capable Android headunits. It can be difficult to tell the fast from the slow just by looking at the screen.
