That's pretty reasonable. I wonder if that's internal, or external. Although I guess it really doesn't matter. If it's external, it could be hidden under the console or something.

Right. Also if you buy a camera from them they are low resolution CMOS version. Save your money and buy a CCD camera from ebay for under 25.00 you will get better picture and cleaner images.

The big problem I see with this unit is the language barrier. I'm asking the guy questions and he clearly doesn't understand what I'm asking, or I'm not understanding his answers.

FWIW, the ODBII doesn't work with the 4.0 version yet. They're working on it, but it's not compatible right now.

Why would OBD2/BT not work? BT communication issues or 4.0 issues with the torque app?

One question for the guys that have this Android radio installed (sorry if it was answered before):

What about this (available on OEM radio, will it be available on the new radio?):
Vehicle
Personalization
The audio system controls are used
to access the personalization
menus for customizing vehicle
features
. Climate and Air Quality
. Comfort and Convenience
. Collision/Detection Systems
. Language
. Lighting
. Power Door Locks
. Remote Lock/Unlock
. Return to Factory Settings

Gonna try to post this video I made from Youtube of the 2.3.4 system. First, this is the first creation I made, so apologize for the quality. Second, sorry for the wind effect, it's Florida, I had the AC on...and Third, this does show some of the kinks in the system which I have learned to live with over the last few months.

Can the DVD player be used to play audio CDs?

Stuff like the above. Stuff like what's the cost of the 8Gb upgrade. He told me, "Yes if Deckless Android 4.0 (without dvd , cost reduce 25usd) , it can come with 4Gb RAM and 8 Gbyte , the only difference is the prices", but didn't tell me the price for the 8Gb. I was also wondering how many USB connections the unit has, but bnorman answered that in his video. I'm just hesitant to ask him questions because I suspect he doesn't understand me 100% and I don't understand him 100%.

What he told me was, "For Android 4.0 , the ODBII and Bluetooth modules. Still not able to work now , still we are adjusting the software for this functions , those only can be used on android 2.3.4 .

once software android 4.0 ready for obd2 , i will advise to avoid problem and cant be used at this moment."

Ok. The new 4.0 hits radio with 4gbyte is 480.00 and the 8gbyte is 530.00. Also they come with DDR 512 memory but you can upgrade to DDR 768 memory for 80.00.

Or one could do those upgrades on his own, buying 8GB SD card and possibly larger DDR2 SDRAM for cheaper

Anybody tried to use a USB HUB? I don't see why it wouldn't work but who knows?
Why a hub? To be able to use the 2 available USB ports for 3 or more connections all in the same time (Center Console, additional HDD, OBD2/BT dongle, etc.)

It's an option that saves you $25.

Hubs generally don't have as much power, and are therefore thought to be unsuitable. I don't know that anybody has tried though.

Have any of the vendors in the U.S. got ahold of these and started selling them?, because I know a couple were talking about it earlier in the thread.

I ordered and paid for my Hits radio (ANCH809SC CA/8300AGSC CA) with Android 4.0! I upgraded to the 8GB & 768 DDR memory. It has the capactive touch screen with the highest resolution of 1024x600. He said this is the best one they make right now so we will see. Price is $610.00 for all that. Shipping is $200.00 on top of that.

If so you would probably have to order those from China anyway so I decided to buy all the upgrades from them.

Even with shipping and the extra stuff I am buying for this radio like high resolution cameras and USB hub for my center console it is still cheaper than the Mylink upgrade. My thing is I like to be different and have things that not every body has at shows and a lot of people have the Mylink in their newer models. So I sold my Mylink brain and faceplate that I was going to use for that upgrade. I am saving 400.00 plus doing this and it is fully customizable in every way and looks awesome in the car!! He told me when they get everything working on the Android 4.0 he will shoot me a email letting my know there is a software update. Ready to get it put in and play with it. I have already made some cool wallpapers for it when I go to shows this year. Just want to say Thanks to the ones who brought this to our attention and bought one.

Not to be Mr. Negative, but I have not heard anything from anyone about the warranty. If there are no US importers, what happens if the unit fails....it's a long way back to China and I would not like to be looking at a hole in my dash while I wait weeks for warranty service from this company (if they have a warranty program at all). Things do break, so I would be concerned about how the company plans to handle defective/broken units.

Just this aspect prevents me from even considering this unit...
