The Fastest Android Headunit? in 2020

With a large 10″ screen

The faster, the better, and the PX6 processor-based Android headunits are the fastest available. Included is 4Gb of RAM, which will allow the headunit to respond quickly. No matter which apps you switch between, this will respond. As you swipe or tap the screen to active google maps or maybe play a song on Spotify, you want the screen to react, and the PX6s do that quickly.

Budget Friendly

This headunit is a budget-friendly, standard format with a universal fit. It boasts a full 10″ screen and a single DIN body but at a very budget-friendly price. This has proved a popular choice for owners of the many TVP vans and campers travelling the country. But these very capable Android headunits are not limited vans! They also fit nicely into cars, trucks, and even boats.

common format, exceptional processor

The very fastest processor currently available for an Android headunit is the Rockchip PX6. The 10″ model looked at here uses that processor. The 10″ screen format is prevalent and is used with many different and much less capable processors. It can be difficult to tell the fast from the slow just by looking at the screen.

Advantages

This version of this fastest processor android headunit has the full 10″ screen that gives you the most display available in this 10″ format. A slim bezel houses the touch controls and the tap volume controls.

Disadvantages

Not having a physical control knob may be seen as a disadvantage, but having steering wheel controls negates this, and a bigger screen may just be more important to you.

If you want to do the physical volume control, at the loss of a small amount of screen display area, then look at this very similar 10″ android headunit with a physical volume control. It has the very same fast processor and 4 GB RAM configuration but uses a slightly smaller display to allow fitting of the physical volume control knob within the bezel.

Features

An unusual feature for video out is the newer HDMI system. The video feed can be split to headrest screens over HDMI using cheap and robust standard HDMI cables.

RGB is often overlooked or just assumed. The ability to adjust the touch buttons’ red, green, and blue components is called RGB. This Android headunit has RGB; many cheaper models don’t.

DSP – Digital Signal Processing is found on much more expensive models and is omitted from this budget-friendly Android headunit. The sound control is made under software. If sound quality and adjustment to a sufficient degree are essential, have a look at our DSP-enabled Android headunits.

Wifi, GPS, and USB are all included as standard, and this headunit is no different.

Update

PX6 is a strong contender with its 4 GB RAM to run an Android Headunit quickly. But in 2023, there is another strong contender. The UIS7862 is quicker than the PX6; you can find the UIS7862 with 6 GB RAM or more. This new chip has been proving itself and is a faster choice to run Android and a better choice if you are searching for speed. Find the updated UIS7862-based Android Headunits on AliExpress.
