Default Avin vs Dynavin vs Eonon for OEM Nav replacement

Need some help in trying to decide which unit works best with iPhone X. I've read a few threads and can't seem to figure out one over the other. I have an OEM Nav with HK audio.

My needs:
- Car play (Google maps navigation)
- Make / Receive phone calls
- Play music (Spotify) / listen to podcasts
- Rear view camera (nice to have)
- Tire pressure monitor on-board computer (nice to have)

Also an installer you recommend in NorCal - SF Bay area would be very helpful.

Thanks!

I'd throw in the Xtronos as an option.... it seems to have a lot of a community following on another message board for after market support compared to some of the other options there. its in a similar league to AVIN and the Eonon but a fair bit cheaper than the AVIN...

I bought the Xtrons, waiting to receive it. In terms of compatibility, I think these devices would work as nice as the Android devices do it usually with iPhones

What's your favorite offline maps app that you decided to stick with? Bought my Xtrons Android 8 unit a couple months ago when eBay was doing 20% off, but haven't installed it yet. Unfortunately my phone doesn't allow hotspot, or I'd just run Google Maps live again my phone. Might also see if mirroring works.

Love my Xtron unit! I use the personal hotspot on the iPhone X to run Spotify, Waze or whatever other apps that need Internet access... You could also buy the CarPlay adapter that Avin sells if that's your preference.

The backup camera works perfectly as well.

Which Eonon unit do you have? I am going to guess it has wifi.
