This could end up being a 5-star product if I can get some of the idiosyncrasies ironed out.

—- By G3
0223
  • Pros:
First off: It’s installed and fired up beautifully, no problems at all. The wires are all ISO color-coded, and I made no mistakes connecting everything (Huzzah!). All of the applications worked right first time —-radio, GPS, Bluetooth hands-free, etc. Oh and BTW, the GPS is amazing at signal acquisition. I’m used to Garmin taking a while to get a position, especially after sitting unpowered for some days. But this Android 4.4 unit found satellites and got a position after only a minute or so, even after being shipped across 10 time zones! And it picks up a good GPS constellation even under my carport.
  • Cons:
My current complaints are few and minor: the audio has a hiss in it, and I see that Pumpkin has a power filter (free) to solve this issue. The GPS does not seem to have a “north up” setting, which I much prefer over “track up”. Also, the existing GPS software has map colors that are very poorly chosen. It’s almost impossible to see secondary roads, and I may have to change that software before all is said and done.
The physical unit is fairly large, around 4″ vertical dimension, and it was a very snug squeeze in my Ford Ranger console —- but it worked.
The Android system is fairly conventional, but with all the apps and configurations, it’s sometimes puzzling as to where to find a particular setting. Time will iron this out. Nice to have “home” buttons both on the touch screen and the push-buttons.
  • Overall
I’m overall quite pleased, ESPECIALLY for the price. I expect to have a lot of fun with this.

KD-C0223 1

Universal Android 4.4 Car Stereo KD-C0223

Size

  • Will it fit in 2002 Ford Windstar (or other car models)?

It’s a universal 2 DIN head unit whose size is 178mm*100mm,  and it comes with ISO cables. Please check the dimensions and shape by yourself before purchasing. It’ll fit your car as long as its size fits the dashboard. But if your car has CANBUS or DSP, this head unit would not work properly.

GPS Navigation System

  • Has the GPS freeze up problem been fixed? What kind of GPS is installed? What does it cost to update?

We will preload the free testing copy map from the factory into a 8GB micro SD card for you which includes the map of your country. It’s an iGo software and it doesn’t support update via website. However, once the factory release the new map file, we can send it to you via email for free; all you need to do is just download and use it.

  • How accurate is the GPS navigation system? Does it use Google Navigation, a third party navigation or both?

Most customers are satisfied with the GPS navigation system. We’ll send you a free map SD card to use, and you can also download a map such as Google, Waze via 3G or WiFi.

  • Does the GPS provide turn-by-turn voice navigation? Does iGo receive traffic if you supply the unit with internet access (through 3G or WiFi)?

Yes, it can provide turn-by-turn voice navigation. And you need to download the Google map to receive traffic through WiFi or 3G.

Compatible Function

  • Is this car stereo compatible with 2010 Suzuki SX4 steering wheel controls?

The Suzuki SX4 is original with CANBUS system, so it isn’t compatible. Also, the dimension and shape doesn’t fit, either.

  • Is it compatible with JBL system on Toyota Rav 4?

Sorry, it isn’t.

  • Is this compatible for a 2004 Chevy Avalanche with Bose system & steering wheel controls?
The RCA output is specially designed for the subwoofer, please connect it for the bass out.
  • Is the iPhone 6 compatible with this system?

Yes, it can be compatible with iPhone 6.

Others

  • Will this unit be able to use Bluetooth OBD2 and Bluetooth hands-free calling at the same time?

Sorry, you are only able to use these two functions independently, not at the same time.

  • Why is there a TV button on the head unit if it doesn’t support TV?

This unit can support TV, but it needs extra fees to get this service.

  • Does it play audio CDs? If so, what types?

It can play DVD-video, DVD+-R/RW, DVD-ROM, CD-DA, CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW…

  • Can this product handle OBD2 with USB?

Sorry, it can’t.

  • Does the cables that come with the unit have a “Remote Turn On” wire for the amplifier? Does it stream song title and artist while listening to the radio?

Sorry, the cables don’t have the wire for amplifier. And yes, it can stream song title and artist.

  • Do the lights and screen auto-dim (at night or when the headlights are turned on)?

The lights and the screen will auto-dim when the headlights are turned on.

  • I just purchased this unit, but the video output is being transmitted as black and white and not color. It plays color on the display, why?

The video output is only for DVD signal from the DVD driver.  Please change the TV system on to PAL or NTSC on your headrest, so that it would display the original color.

  • The unit works perfectly. However, upon start-up the button lights turn on for 3 seconds and then off. How do I get them to turn on and stay on?

You should cut the ILL(orange one) cable and then connect to ACC(red one) cable.

【Customer Review for Pumpkin】KD-C0224 Universal 6.95 Inch 2 Din Android 4.4 Head Unit

If you’ve seen the reviews and like what you see and just skeptical because it’s not a popular name brand, I am writing this review to tell you to buy this unit, you will not regret it.

By Ryan Huey

  • Radio Reception

I read a lot about bad reception. I live 60 miles out of Houston, TX and the reception is just as good as my factory radio. Maybe very slightly less, but all the major radio stations come in perfect.

  • WiFi Hotspot

When I run the hotspot on my G5, it works fine. The apps are just as fast as my phone.

  • GPS Navigation

The iGo Nav app that comes with it was a lot better than I anticipated. When I don’t have the hotspot on, it’s definitely sufficient. I prefer Google Maps (when you first open, scroll down to accept terms, it took me a minute to figure that out). Finally, you can do a real map research, this is so much better than my Infinity Nav System.

  • OBDII

I bought a cheap OBDII Scan Tool and set it up through Bluetooth (PIN 1234), downloaded Torque, and it runs great. Still haven’t had time to set it all up yet, but it’s very cool for $15 for tool and app.

  • Pandora

I downloaded Pandora and it works great. It’s much quieter than the radio, so the radio was loud when I switched back. There are setting to change volume settings for the different modes to fix that.

  • Steering Wheel Control

I used the Axxess programmer to set up the steering wheel buttons (brown wires to “key” 1&2 brown wires). Got instructions from the AXXESS website for my vehicle and it was fairly easy to program. I like that you have many options to program buttons to something else. I used my “MODE” button for “HOME”. That way if I want to open an app while driving, I hit MODE (HOME) and I have the apps I use driving on the HOME screen, so I just need to glance down onece and push it. Otherwise, you have to look over, hit HOME button, scroll to find the app, and then push it. I got the 6.95″ Android 4.4 head unitbecause I have volume buttons on my steering wheel control. Otherwise I probably would have gone with the unit with a volume knob. There are volume buttons, but you’d almost have to look down every time to use them.

  • In Conclusion

This radio may not have everything you’d dream of and may not be set up exactly the way you want, but it’s SOOOO much better than any of the mainstream radios out there. If you’re like me and have priced the mainstream radios with Nav from $800-$1000, you’ll think there’s no way this is good quality for under $400. I don’t know if it’s Bose quality, but it’s damn good.
