" ...  Good picture quality but don't expect it to work with Netflix because it doesn't support Netflix or some other streaming apps.  ...  "

" ...  Just had the Android stereo installed today (after more than a week's order) and I would say that I'm quite happy with it.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I have had this Android in dash stereo for 8 months now. ... It will do just about anything an android phone will do.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I’ve not experienced any of the microphone bugs others spoke of, but mine arrive with Android 7.2, maybe that didn’t apply.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Hopefully there will be an android update that fixes these bugs and the mfg provides the update.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Installed Google Maps, Navigon, Herewego which are much better than the preinstalled IGo program. ... Bluetooth works great for streaming Pandora and Spotify, and hands-free phone (except when using Google Maps on the phone which allows real-time updates and reading of street names, which sounds very garbled and loud). ... When using data can also use Google assistant by speaking "Ok Google" and ask for directions, weather, time, etc.  ...  "

comment
" ...  The stereo function is very good . ... I find the sound to be sufficient possibly even great already for my standard since I am not that sophisticated with my sound system preferences. ... The original speakers I have though are for a limited edition SUV so it does sound good with it (in short, I can't tell if it will sound well with ordinary speakers).  ...  "
comment
" ...  The radio sounds better than my last two stereos, the response is fast, the screen is clear and bright, and the overall quality is very nice for such an affordable unit. ... I thought I would be giving up a lot of sound quality coming from a head unit with HD Radio, but overall, the sound is beyond my expectations.  ...  "
comment
" ...  One great use of it for Amazon users if the fact you can download songs and playlist from Amazon music to play from the stereo offline. ... Will post actual width of stereo later to help use as reference for others.  ...  "

" ...  I would also like more information on how to upgrade the GPS application or update the device to a later version of Android namely Android 8.0. Who know if I will be able to do these things but overall I have been pleasantly surprised with this head unit.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The installed GPS software is nice, even though its functions are limited, and I was able to easily install a few more android GPS programs including Google Maps, Here Maps, and Waze. ... And with all of the apps I feel I need, I still have half of the 16g free. ... I originally wanted a 32g model, but you really do not need all of the apps you would put on a tablet or phone for usage in the car.  ...  "

comment
" ...  The BACK button was replaced with a BAND button. ... and the bezel is deeper which makes it even harder to touch in the corners and the sides. ... The few things that I was intent on getting with my unit was an Android operating system, a rotary volume knob, and the bezel being plain or unbranded. ... Besides that, the volume knob is too short and rubs on the side the bezel and the connectors on the back are incredibly tight to the back so it looked like I was going to modify my bezel after all.  ...  "
