I haven't pesonally compared all, but Avin Avant3 appears to have the best OE looking bezel and overall look if that matters to you.

Having done the install, it is pretty straight forward. Just remember to connect the two blue wires.

Default Re: Avin vs Dynavin vs Eonon for OEM Nav replacement

Thank you all for the replies.

Just to make sure I'm looking at the right model of each product, can you guys confirm this is what you have?

Eonon - GA8150A
https://www.eonon.com/Android-Car-GP...CD-Player.html

XTrons - pb7846bp
http://xtrons.com/pb7846bp-android-8...-75-mg-zt.html

Avin Avant 3
https://avinusa.com/avant-3-for-bmw-...on-system.html

Dynavin N7
http://www.dynavin.com/products/n7_e46.php

In terms of cost, the Avin and Dynavin seem to be more expensive at $699 compared to $399 for the Xtrons and Eonon.

Both Eonon and Xtrons seem to be very similar in terms of features but I'm concerned about the customer support for these brands. The Eonon product link above says its shipped from Hong Kong, if something breaks or doesn't work as expected I want to be able to take it to a local installer to rectify the problem than dealing with someone in China.

If Dynavin or Avin offer authorized local installer, I'd prefer to go with them even if the cost is higher.

Thoughts?

Also, for those who have rear view camera, does the rear view video sync with your stock PDC?

I can say this from experience the support I got from eonon was awsome, I live in Canada and when I ordered the head units I bought 2 one for my e46 m3 and one for my 2005 x5 they came with in 7 days.

When I first ordered on check out I was only able to select 1 free gift so I got the obd2 reader and the one for the m3 had torque already preinstalled the full version too not the trail one.

I then contacted eonon on Facebook I asked them why was I given 1 gree gift when the website said u get a free gift if u spend over 200$ I think, right away they said sorry and asked me what my 2d gift would like to be, I choose to get the rear camera and that also came with in 7 days and free shipping, the head units come with 1 year warranty but u can buy more warranty after the fact.

Also I would get their latest one if your gonna go with eonon https://www.eonon.com/Android-Car-GP...CD-Player.html

4 gig ram the 8.0 android

The other 2 u mentioned do not state what the head units are spec wise also one of those units does not even surrport DVD or disk

Default Re: Avin vs Dynavin vs Eonon for OEM Nav replacement

Can anyone explain the compatibility of iPhone with Eonon units? I'm looking at theire sites and while comparing the Eonon GA 8510A and the GA9150A, it says at the bottom that this does not suppor iphone playback, charging, or any support input.

Is this true?

I originally thought this unit would at least support bluetooth with Iphone, but if it can't charge my phone that might be a game changer.
