Re: GPS Sat Nav DVD 5" Group Buy

Guys really don't want to be a kill joy and I could be wrong but has anyone had it confirmed that this unit come in English because from everytime I have searched for this item it never says that it does?

I would suggest (forgive me if someone already has) emailing the company and asking them if this item comes loaded with UK Language. From my reading of it thought it doesn't appear to.

This item isn't as simple as just unplug old and plug new one in from the looks of it?

Don't get me wrong it is very nice unit (although not interested myself).

Just thought someone might want to check out the language bit and the fitting?

Regards
Stephen

Re: GPS Sat Nav DVD 5" Group Buy

Hi guys,

can someone please explain to me the difference between S1 and S2 models? Is that the Non-Evo and Evo designations?

SJB1985, the unit is using a Microsoft Windows as the operating system. The language support will come from the OS not the OEM, so whilst I haven't had it confirmed by the supplier, I work in IT and I know that the OS will support various languages. If that was a restriction then the Chinese would only be able to supply in their domestic market and I don't think there is a big enough Fiat market in the country yet. Still a fair point, to be confirmed.

Connections at the back of the unit are standard plus of course a host of additional connections like every other aftermarket unit. From what I understand steering wheel controls are supported also.

Shame the Chinese new year is just kicking off so we wont hear nothing from them for at least a month.

Hum

Now we are getting the idea Just keep adding to the above list please. Perhaps it makes more sense to change YOM to S1,S2,S3...etc? I don't know the difference so I need feedback guys.

Can someone please confirm whether Grey/Silver is different to Chemical Grey? If no then please try to use the same syntax/terminology e.g. Black, Grey, etc. If there are more colour combinations than Black and Grey can someone in the know list all the colour options please?

Knowing the Chinese, we may need to provide Hi-Res images of the various colours under agreed lighting conditions e.g. taking the snaps at the same date/time to neutralise lighting conditions as much as possible, so we can ensure they can accommodate.

Count me in guys that looks cool. Only worry is it's not Android like some of the OEM style units you can get for BMW, Merc, etc.

Re: GPS Sat Nav DVD 5" Group Buy

Quick search online reveals some details.......






If you can read Italian, some info about the internals, mostly the navigation chipset and memory used.....




The Evo unit......



Ok so the new unit looks a bit different on the back from what I have seen. The two USB pigtails have gone, now I see only one USB port. DBV-T tuner built in (two silver SMA antenna ports), don't know what the gold plated SMA port is for (perhaps for a GPS antenna), one what looks like SPDIF connector for Apple "I" devices (shame it looks like no Android support, fekkers), and the rest are standard DIN plugs one of which provides the preouts via the pigtail shown in the other image. That leaves the little white connector presumably for the steering wheel controls?

Also this unit for sale in Italy at 240 euros, so we should be able to do better than that.

Hi Chris,

the Swedish link lists V1, the unit in the images I posted is the V2 of the same. I don't think the manufacturer can supply the older unit anymore, but will check. There are significant differences on the back Interfaces of the units between V1 and V2, looks like more integration in V2 with the exception of the pre-outs pigtail which forces all the wires to be housed somewhere even if only 1 needs to be used.

The s2 has the same dash board. I just didn't know if the wiring behind it was different. I doubt it but don't want to be left with a useless head unit

Re: GPS Sat Nav DVD 5" Group Buy

I think the plugs changed in 2009 (evo models?) from standard iso to the quadlock plug. There again a radio adaptor for 5 quid is surely worst case scenario?
