The best Android headunit for a Skoda Fabia MK2 will be a custom-fit Android headunit. Skoda does not use the standard DIN (Double or Single) fitting system. This is good news because a custom-fit Android headunit will replace the Skoda factory stereo with a perfectly fitting replacement. No DIN adaptor bezels are required, but this is not the only advantage.
A Skoda Fabia custom-fit Android headunit will come with factory-style connectors making the installation much more of a plug-and-play experience. Please do not cut your factory loom; instead, plug them into the rear of the custom-fit Android headunit, and any wires from the Android will connect to the Skoda wiring.
The CAN BUS connects the Skoda factory stereo to the Fabia, and removing the factory radio disconnects these features. A custom-fit Android headunit for the Skoda Fabia is complete with a CAN BUS adaptor box that interfaces Fabia’s computer with the new Android Headunit to keep the functions of the old factory radio.
There are a lot of custom-fit Android headunits for the VW/Skoda range, so picking one that is good value for money and provides a fast and fluid user experience is important. But so is a branded and trusted product. This Pumpkin for Fabia MK2 fits that bill. It has the latest and fastest PX6 processor coupled with 4 GB RAM for a smooth user experience that won’t have problems streaming films, playing games, quickly switching to google maps, booting up, and opening Spotify. Some discrete physical buttons along the bottom edge don’t affect the screen size but provide that extra useful feature lacking from some Android headunits.
A great choice for an Android Headunit for the Skoda Fabia Mk2
