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-C0234 Universal 6.2″ HD Touchscreen Android 4.4 Quad-core Double Din Car Stereo

Great head unit (KD-C0234) for the price. Can’t find anything like this from the name brand companies like Pioneer, Sony, Kenwood, etc. Pumpkin is way ahead of their competition.
By Dan J

Pros: 

There are lots of great features, these are a few of the better ones.
  • Android 4.4 operating system. (just the fact that it’s an Android head unit is awesome)
  • Built-in Bluetooth and WiFi. Being a quad-core tablet I get all of the advantages of my Android smart phone that I previously using in my car (for music, surf on the internet etc) via Bluetooth, built right into the dash of my car. I can add a back and/or  front facing camera, a wireless hot-spot, rear screens for the DVD to entertain the younger family members, tethering to my phone by hot-spot for Bluetooth, the potential is only limited by the accessories available in the marketplace.
  • GPS works great. I have used the stock app iGo, Google maps and Waze (my prefered GPS app). All work quite well.
  • Has everything and more than the most expensive name brand car radios. All of the features of the unit work as advertised, but the expansion possibilities are fantastic. Android is definitely the future of car head units!
  • Since I can have my ECU logging software (torque and BtSsm) running on there without needing anything extra hooked up, it’s very awesome. Makes for a very clean setup.

Cons:

Don’t get discouraged by this list of Cons, this head unit has a lot going for it.
  • Music player app doesn’t display ID3 tags, only display file name.
  • Unable to fast-forward or change the position of the song being played.
  • The front bezel is slightly larger (in that it’s not recessed like American double din units), so I had to modify my dash kit just slightly.

Summary:

This is a really cool head unit, it’s quick, very responsive and has many many great features; but it needs some software flaws fixed and few hardware issues fixed. If you can deal with the flaws it has, you will have a lot of fun with this. As time goes, I hope that some of these software issues get resolved because I really like this head unit.
