What he said.

What version of android does it have? Oreo 8.1 was just released.

How long is the warranty?

Does Avin make any commitment to keep the OS current?

It's running 6.something.

I have no intention of updating any apps or the OS once everything is running as I desire, unless there's a significant compelling reason to do so.

Once I get it running, I think I'll try to write an app that allows some basic coding of various modules (and maybe DME flashing and whatnot). Already somewhat have code working on an android tablet.

As far as OS updates, hopefully this thing isn't completely custom and can be flashed with a custom rom.

If anyone with this unit up and running can screenshot the "About this Device" section, I can let you know if you can flash a custom ROM to it. If it's like any other Android HU, there's prob. firmware out there and MCU support.

That's cool, are you doing it via an iBus interface or OBD port? I have a Resler's iBus laying around from my old tablet install, wonder if I can use it for something on my Android headunit.

I'll have to see how much control we get over the iBus through AVIN's interface. Right now I'm just using a USB OTG adapter with a standard ediabas interface. Eventually I'll probably just use one of those ELM327 bluetooth OBDII adapters. DME flashing would definitely have to use something like that since the DME isn't available over the I/K-bus.

Will the obc control display work at all for cars that didn't come with Factory navigation?

I know it's my car I control the OBC with the stalk button but I know on the navigation cars you could see OBC readout in the display.

I'm almost ready to get this unit but my car is not a factory navigation car so if it doesn't have the ability to control display OBC information because of that then I probably won't get it.

I have the factory PDC so I'm curious if and engages when you hit reverse like the factory PDC does? And automatically shows the PDC map? If it does that's really cool.

The knob feels quite nice. No slop, firm clicks.
