    Hi , Looking for a new head unit , Alpine style would be a perfect fit but at 1800 a lot of money.
    Anyone fitted an android unit ? They are under 400 for latest andriod version.
    Or just go Sony ,Pioneer etc ?

    For around 300 quid, an Android unit hsd gotta be worth trying....

    I have the easrlier-generation Windows CE based Chinese no-name unit and it works well. Goes pretty loud, sound quality is OK and the Satnav does what it should do. DVD plays just fine. Android phone connects easily and even plays music from it. Also has an internal memory to copy media from the micro-SD card.

    The exception being the steering wheel switches don't work but I don't see the point in them anyway, because I have arms....

    Do a search on the forum and you will see a lot of negative comments about the chinese clone things.

    They really are very poor quality.

    Why not look at a second hand comand unit?
