What our customer say:
Set off looking to replace my car stereo for no reason but to gain a USB port. I would have been happy keeping my original stereo if there was some way of just adding a USB port. Almost bought a stereo at the superstore even though I didn’t like the look of them much.
My original stereo was a Sony CD MP3 player with eight in-door speakers, fitted in a 56 plate Ford Focus Ghia hatch. A really good factory fitted system, but I was always burning CDs.
My main worry purchasing this autoradio gps 2 din was losing the powerful bass. That concern was quickly put to rest with my favourite music app installed. I am able to tweak my music to perfection, bass, treble and everything in between.
The FM radio is not nice to look at or tune, programmed stations disappear and signal seem weak. There is RDS though so you can stay up to date with the latest traffic situation. Luckily there are Internet radio apps that work well.
There is a Pumpkin Ford Focus specific stereo with the same dimensions as the original but that runs on Windows CE software and I was fearful of ending up with a sat-nav I didn’t like and couldn’t change. iGo is the best or certainly among the best. It is accurate, search is very good, voice natural, almost overwhelmed by the options/customization this navigation software with live traffic offers (it sometimes reports incidents on French instead of British roads) . If you have a car like mine remove the glove compartment and stick the satellite antenna to the metal bar beneath the dash. Locks on to satellites instantly.
Loads of storage options are available. There are two SD card slots at the front and two USB ports at the back.
I was hoping to place the bluetooth mic above the windscreen by the rear view mirror but the cable is far too short so it got stuck behind the steering instead. Sound quality is not great on incoming calls, not the pure, clean sound in tbe factory fitted Peugeot 3008 system. It works alright though. Cannot access my phone book. Don’t care, I am not much of a talker.
Trying to save money I opted to install this unit myself even though I didn’t know what I was doing. It is basically plug and play. I don’t know the technical terms for things so I will leave that alone. I had to buy a couple things for the cable and radio antenna to fit. Could have all been had for under £10.00 if I didn’t need my steering wheel controls to function with the stereo. As it turns out I spent more for a steering wheel adapter and still cannot fully programme the buttons. Not sure if the adaptor, stereo software or yours truly is at fault.
I had to strip and crimp the steering wheel control (SWC) wires myself. Bought a crimping tool and learnt on the job.
At the start of this all I wanted was a cheap USB input for my stereo. What I have now is a lot more fun but a lot less cash (I really don’t think £200+ is cheap regardless of what they sell for elsewhere).
To install the unit I removed the old one of course, attach supplied brackets to either side of the new one and fitted using two longer screws than the ones I removed from the old unit. There is not much room back there so cables have to be creatively tucked in any available cavities. Be careful not to knock out any of your car’s electrics, a/c, hazards etc. As for the fascia I could not find one to properly fill the gap left around the stereo.
There is a supplied paper user manual and a PDF version pre-installed on the stereo. Grammar is not always good but neither is mine. Nothing will be lost. It’s fine.
Really nice system quirks notwithstanding.

Heute sprechen wir über eine neue Pumpkin 10,1 Zoll Kopfstütze Monitor, CH1002B. Diese dvd player auto kopfstütze wird von 10,1 Zoll kopfstützen dvd player-CH1001B geändert. Der Unterschied ist, dass dieses kopfstützenmonitor verfügt über Touchscreen.
Nach der Installation:
Gott sei Dank! Beschaffte ich den kopfstützenmonitor bevor die lange Fahrt von Berlin nach Weitendorf. Das freche Kind wurde uns auf jeden Fall nicht durch ungeduldiges Schreien vom Fahren ablenken.
Die Eigenschaften des Players haben mich überzeugt und deshalb mit dem Punkten natürlich nicht geize.
-integrierte Lautsprecher und selbst wenn verbunden mit Kopfhörer auch sehr guten Klang
-Mit Touchscreen ist es einfach zu bedienen. Sogar unser 5 Andreas kann das Gerät selbst steuern.
-Adapter für den Zigarettenanzünder, bzw. Sromkabel ebenfalls im Lieferumfang enthalten.
-Fernbedienung funktioniert einwandfrei und mann brauchen 2 Batterien dafür selbst besorgen(im Bilder hinaufgewiesen,daher kein Wunder)
– Was überrascht ist der Monitor spielt nach dem abstellen automatisch weiter wo das Auto abgestellt wurde.
Bin sehr zufrieden und würde es nur empfehlen.
Die Monitore haben die Erwartungen voll und ganz erfüllt. Einfache Bedienbarkeit, super hochauflösende Grafik und selbst bei schneller Fahrt über schlechte Straßen oder Kopfsteinpflaster oder sonstiges sind die DVD’s kein einziges mal gesprungen. Wir sind sehr zufrieden und überzeugt von dem Produkt und die Kinder sind begeistert!
Well where do I start with this Pumpkin vw android 5.1 autoradio dvd gps. I was a bit sceptical for several weeks on whether to pay the rip off VW prices for a more upmarked android 5.1 double din stereo other than the bog standard one I had in the car or pay around the £250 mark for one of these from China (although posted from London). I can honestly say I’m glad I didn’t go for VW as this vw dvd player is brilliant in my view. I didn’t fit it for a couple of months and it was a doddle to install in my MKV Golf 2007, everything just plugged in and was up and running in 20 minutes. Once installed you just really have to browse through the many settings and customize it for yourself. The main things I wanted were Bluetooth for my phone (which was built in) and the ability to play my Spotify account which it does brilliantly along with playing videos for my granddaughter. I have a reversing cam fitted but haven’t managed to figure out the wiring yet but I’m sure it will be ok when I get round to it. The one small downside is the radio reception isn’t quite up to the VW unit I had in the car and I had a constant (but mild) buzzing which only occurred when I turned my lights on so I have purchased a good quality inline supressor which I will fit shortly, other than that reception is great with radio stations also giving Radio station names. I think the best way to approach this pumpkin vw sat nav radio regarding apps is to treat it like an Android smartphone or Tablet as there are thousands of apps to download.
The video playback from files on a usb stick (I stuck to mp4 format) are crystal clear. I downoaded VLC player to be the default playback and it is great as it shows thumbnails of clips. The igo satnav which looks crowded on the screen at start is really very good once you customise it a bit. You can also download or use your own satnav prog (TomTom or Garmin etc) if you pay for an account(or one of the many free progs) and set it as default on the unit so when you hit the GPS button up comes your chosen satnav programme.
I had an iphone6 at the time of installation and it paired instantly and you are then able to view your contacts etc on the Head unit to make calls. I now have a Galaxy S6 and again paired pefectlyh. The packaged microphone is pants so I have invested in a far better one which is a huge improvement. The built in wifi is excellent as it easily picks up my house wifi when I’m parked outside or on the driveway.
Regarding the 3G dongle, the description does not make this very clear but I can confirm if you insert a 4G sim (Micro sim by the way) it worked perfectly in picking up a pretty solid 3G signal. I had a spare contract data sim that I am using but I did try a 4G payg phone sim and although it showed the 3g status bar on the screen it wouldn’t connect so make of that what you want.
If you use Spotify by the way it will work using the wifi when parked outside your house and continue to work once you drive off but the moment you change albums (go back to spotify home) it will loose contact. Obviously you don’t get this problem over 3G. I have set my spotify to download and play offline all my music to save data, I have also added a 32gb sd card (maximim size you can use) as my new default storage location as the head unit only has about 1g storage. You can also set a USB stick with tons of storage as default so it is really endless what you can download. DVD playback is brilliant and all playback media sound quality is great. The screen is nice and clear and colours are vibrant. You can customise the screen wallpaper etc and move all the apps around like a phone/tablet.
One odd thing but not a fault of the unit is when it is switched off (in a Golf in any case) the position of it in the dash it acts like a mirror and you and your passenger can see each others faces clearly as you drive along and you feel like you are being looked at all the time so best thing is if you dont want the radio on just mute the sound.
My advice also once you have this Pumpkin vw navigation unit and before you spend hours customizing it check if there are any Android updates for the unit, I made the mistake of doing it after I set it all up and it updates ok but resets the whole unit back to factory settings so be warned. The customer support bearing in mind they are in China are brilliant and will respond the next day and will always answer any queries and are very helpful. They will also provide you with the link for the latest update and installation notes, the notes say to download the update to an sd card but you can also just download direct to the unit using the link and install it from the built in flash memory. All in all a great Head Unit and I have no regrets whatsoever in purchasing it. Hope this review helps.
