    Does this not have USB or auxiliary input?

    Oh and stay away from the "Koolertron" versions. They run WinCE and are total pieces of shit.

    Looked into this for a long time. I determined I might want something a little bigger but didn't like the ugly double din aftermarket look so I went with the joying 7" android 5.1 single din unit. Going to recess it into the dash and it was half the cost as the stock looking unit. Don't wanna hijack the thread but just thought I'd post so when it gets here I can compare to the proven unit (yours).

    Link?


    Oh, I found if. I sort of remember people on another forum complaining about this unit because it covers controls or the vents or something. I believe it may have been the vents and when the heater was on it was causing issues with the screen. I don't remember for sure.

    Let's see pics! I looked it up and looks like the tits!

    this is it. It can be adjusted up/down so I will have to find the perfect place where it doesnt cover climate controls/vents. If i measured correctly it will JUST fit. May have to trim the dash to recess it. Will definitely post when it gets here.

    I demand pics immediately! ;-)

    I like it but I'd rather spend the extra hundred for the stock look/fit. I'm not a thief but I bet Chris would jack that of your jeep in a minute!

    @Chris is a HUGE android fan... so having the ability to run android on a 7" screen in his Jeep is like magic... a gift from above.

    I loathe Android after using vanilla android on our daughters Nexus tablet. Makes me so happy I use iOS!

    I'm tempted.. seriously tempted. I just can't figure out how, in my head, to justify it. The features are neat, sure, but how's it handle weather? How does it handle humidity and condensation?

    Will it be like my buddy's 2016 Willys JK and shit the bed the first time I leave it out in the rain with the top off? Cause I'm a forgetful SOB sometimes.

    Absolutely love it. It makes driving around the city and highway feel like a whole new experience. I'm planning on installing some cameras front and rear and wiring them up to the unit (for fun).

    I haven't had any issues but I haven't ever left it out in the rain. I have driven in the rain with the top off and it was so weird because the entire inside didn't feel like it got wet while moving.
