This car stereo upgrade is a universal single DIN with a difference.
Unlike most of the 10″ fixed-screen single DINs, this one can rotate into portrait mode.
Portrait or Landscape
This Single DIN Android headunit has a large 10″ display in its 11.7″ screen that can quickly be orientated to landscape or portrait mode. This gives you a choice, but the main reason for this screen configuration is its portrait mode. The portrait gives it a Tesla look and feel without the additional costs associated with custom-fit Tesla-style Android headunits.
There is no point in having a large portrait screen only to find the headunit is slow to load apps or is unresponsive to taps. There is no problem there with this 10″ Android headunit. The PX6 processor, coupled with the 4 GB RAM, is fast and runs smoothly. Loading apps and switching between them is responsive. This is a very capable android headunit.
The ISO connectors are essential for a universal fit because this can save a lot of time and potentially make wiring mistakes when installing. The ISO connectors are a standard easily adapted to manufacturer-specific plugs and sockets with the correct adaptor—no need to cut and join the speaker wires. If you plan to use one, you must join some leads, like the reversing camera.
The single DIN body is also a good quality heatsink to help keep the high-speed processor cool. The single DIN body is universal fitting and will slot neatly into a single DIN mounting.
This may not have the most features of an Android headunit, but it does have what counts. The top-end specifications are the fastest processor (PX6 or UIS7862), the ideal quantity of RAM (4 GB to 6 GB), and a DSP. Coupled with a large portrait screen and the low cost can make this unbeatable if the budget is tight. It is excellent value for money and will connect to the usual Android features so that you won’t miss out on DAB+, TPMS, or wifi. Just be sure the large portrait screen won’t obscure the vents or switches too much.
FM is a standard feature of Android Car Stereo, but the AM option is often lacking, but not here. You can find AM specified in the high-end version (the only one to have) for its smooth and responsive operation.
Be sure to pick the ‘Color: Octa 6G 128G Carplay‘ option for the faster processor and extended RAM for the smoothest Android experience.
