This Android 4.4 head unit (KD-C0660) is awesome! If you’re on the fence or are worried about quality, don’t. I’ve been using it for several months and it works great. All the features work as advertised. It works with my steering wheel controls, and also work flawlessly with the backup camera that I purchased separately.

0660

Pros:

  • Nice, large touchscreen, easy to read during the daytime and at night.
  • All features work as advertised.
  • Easy to download new Android apps from the Google Play Store, directly on the Android 4.4 head unit.
  • Works with steering wheel controls.
  • Works great with backup camera.
  • Works great with OBD II Bluetooth dongle and the Torque app – allows you to read all kinds of information about your engine that you can’t normally see. (RPMs for the gas and electric engines, engine coolant temperature, timing advance, etc.)

Cons:

  • If you download a separate app for playing music, it’s possible to end up playing that app and the stock music/radio app at the same time. This can be a problem when using steering wheel controls, as they don’t work with the third party apps, but rather than end up activating the stock app such that both apps are playing at once. I usually make sure this doesn’t happen by switching to Bluetooth.
  • Brightness – turning on headlights only dims the display very slightly, which is perfect if you’re driving in the rain. But, if you’re driving at night, the display is still way too bright. It would be nice if the unit automatically turned the brightness all the way down, but as it’s now you have to do it in the settings.

Overall:

None of these cons were a very big deal to me, and all have solutions, so I went ahead and gave five stars. I really love this unit and all of its features, and highly recommend it. :)

Tips to Improve GPS Signal on Android Car Stereo

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookShare on Google+Share on LinkedInPin on PinterestShare on RedditShare on TumblrShare on StumbleUponDigg thisShare on VK

Though poor GPS signal could be a hardware problem, it’s more often something that can be solved by tweaking your Android car stereo settings. Here are some tips to show you what you can do to improve GPS signal on your Android car stereo.

Audi A4 GPS navigation system

Find out if your GPS issues are hardware or software-related

You can diagnose to see whether poor GPS signal is due to a hardware or software issue by using the GPS Essentials.

  • In the GPS Essentials main menu, tap Satellites, then watch (with some amazement) at your car stereo connecting to satellites around the earth.
  • If no satellites are appearing, then this could be due to interference from metallic objects around you, your car stereo case, or your GPS hardware not working properly.
  • If satellites are appearing, but your GPS is still out of whack, then is a software issue, and you should refer to the other tips in this post to help you.

Refresh your GPS Data

Sometimes your device will get “stuck” on certain GPS satellites, even if they’re not within range, causing it not to work properly. To fix this, you can use an app like GPS Status &Toolbox clear your GPS data and to start connecting to satellites over from scratch.

  • In the app, tap anywhere on the screen, then tap the spanner icon and Manage A-GPS state.
  • Tap Reset, then when that’s finished go back into the Manage A-GPS state menu and tap Download.
  • Your GPS data should now be refreshed, and if it starts playing up again, then just repeat this process.

【Pumpkin FAQ】FAQ for KD-C0223 Universal 6.2 Inch Double Din Android 4.4 Car Stereo

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookShare on Google+Share on LinkedInPin on PinterestShare on RedditShare on TumblrShare on StumbleUponDigg thisShare on VK

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.
