How is this Eonon compared to the D5163Z? I've read through the whole thread and seems like the Eonon GA6163F certainly has a lot of problems.

I believe that its the non-android version of the unit.

So the biggest difference is just that its non-android? Obviously theres other improvements on the GA6163F, but mainly its just that it has an android version?

I believe so, I'm not 100% sure though because I haven't read a spec sheet on it, but from the pictures it doesn't look to be android, and I see nothing android on the advertising page as well.



ALSO UPDATE: After using a couple monitoring apps, I have also noticed that the unit is advertised as a "1.6ghz" quad-core CPU, but in actually while I was monitoring, the max I ever got was 800-900GHZ speed, and only 2 of the cores were really being used, the others would idle at 30% load. I wouldn't claim this as false advertising though, because the actual CPU does go up to 1.6 on other devices, but it seems the kernal/rom does not allow for regular use of it, unfortunate, if the CPU ran at 1.6, or even high clock speed the unit would feel quicker.

I believe this comes to an issue of heat. I don't know if EONON Headunits come with a heatsink on the CPU's or not, I know theres a fan in the back, or at least thats what the diagram says, but thats a little useless without a heatsink.

Regardless, over on the XDA forums, there more people complaining about the speed of the 1024x600 units, but have found success with installing a heatsink, and using an app to increase the CPU clock speeds.

Also people over on XDA are saying that these units while they claim to have bluetooth "4.0" the bitpools in the software are only 32, and if not mistaken that means that even if you have a device with a much higher bitpool (quality), the phone will compress its audio down to accommodate the low bitrate set by the ROM on the unit. I am led to believe this is a rom issue, and in the coding because other people do not have BT quality issues with other custom roms.

Perhaps eonon could shed light into this. Or perhaps release another update that updates the "bluetooth.default.so" file on android.

I've literally been sitting 2 minutes waiting for the unit to unfreeze while trying to punch in a location into Google maps. I'm sick and freaking tired of dealing with half assed crap. Once I get home from work I'm throwing on malaysk room to see if anything improves and if it doesn't I'm throwing this piece of crap head unit into the freaking Hudson River.
freality likes this.

That happened to me literally the other day. Are you using updated google maps? I found that the stock google map version for some reason was a little faster. Kinda dumb cause I wanted the updated version to be able to download offline maps onto my sd card

I've been thinking about installing mals rom, if you do it, can you let us know if it improves the speed?

Anyone has any tricks to force Google Music to write to the SD/USB instead of the 1GB internal space ? Damn frustrating

What version of google music are you using? From what I read theres an updated version that supports the sd card as a place to download offline music (if thats what you mean)

2. I put in a 32GB card, some apps only see 10GB or so. Google Play Music for some reason knows about it but wants to download music to the internal storage instead !!!
3. HERE maps sees 10GB, but will not allow me to download any maps. Also in the "Settings" screen I get a blank page - anyone got HERE working ?
4. Google Play Services and Google Play Store both crashes way more than acceptable


Thanks for the instruction document

Hi FlamingHomer, here are the answers to your questions:
1. Itís not possible use both microSD slots for playing SD card music. The GPS slot is only usded for inserting GPS SD card.
2. Itís actually depended on the APP feature itself. If it doesnít allow you to choose the storage path, you can only download the music to the internal storage. You can move the music files through file management of our unit, or just like David said, try with an updated Google Music APP edition.
3. You can try to reinstall the HERE map to have a try, if the problem still exists, you can send a video to [email protected], we will help you check further.
4. About the crash, we can provide you a software to update, will send you later by PM.
Hope it helps!

Bluetooth issue, Amazon sells bluetooth adapters that you can plug straight into the aux input on your car. You can use that for bluetooth audio streaming and use the "AVIN" app on the unit to stream wireless music, I'd only use this if you're getting a really static sound via via the stock bluetooth like I have. I say only use because as far I know, you lose the bluetooth calling capability unless you get one with an external mic.

Slow Unit Issue: I've tried various things to try and speed up the unit because it is quite slow with loading apps, slower than others units I've seen reviewed on youtube. So far, using a 3 party launcher (Nova launcher for me), AND updating to the newest eonon ROM, has solved all the crashing issues I was facing, but apps still launch really slow. Confused by this, I downloaded a monitoring app, and the results show that when the unit starts and no apps have been open yet, that the CPU usage idles at 70-75% just doing nothing. Opening ANY app will immediately jump it up to 95-100% CPU usage which will in turn result in stuttering, and slow launches. Ram usage is good though, usually uses 30-50% ram, so the issue with the loading speed, and generally slow UI appears to be the CPU.

Questions to EONON is the CPU suppose to be idling at 70%? seems to be a little high, and is only leaving 25-30% available for apps. Perhaps its the amount of start up apps, I don't see a place where we can modify which apps start and which ones dont, and which ones have background usage.
Also any updates on the screen brightness issue?

Overall I do recommend using the upgraded ROM eonon has been offering as it improves the stability of apps and reduces the amounts of crashes. I've had the update for 2 days now, and have had no crashes.

PS. This unit looks sexy in my mazda.
Hi davidgotmilk, glad to hear the Eonon GA6163F makes your car sexy!
The Monitor APP itself may affects the unit speed itself. So please try to uninstall the Monitor APP, if it's still the same, please take a picture or video to show the percentage then, you can send to [email protected].

And it's not possible to modify which apps start and which ones donít, and which ones have background usage. Our unit is designed in this way. But you can check if the APPs themselves have such settings or not.

About the brightness issue, we're still working hard on it. The software is not available yet. If there's any news on it, I'll inform you guys soon, thanks!
