Anyone have this yet? Seeing if there's a real review from a user here. Pretty disappointed that the only "major" upgrade on this model was a .2 ghz faster CPU, when every other company is already on octocore CPU and 2gb of ram.

ordered one last Thursday from the UK site, hope it will arrive this week in the Netherlands.
Went for it after some good videos on youtube, people comparing the new and old one (not specific mazda ones). For me will be big improved over my ca-fi device.

Hi davidgotmilk, many guys have bought the hot GA7163 Android 6.0 unit from us. As Inferno mentioned below, there's a video comparing Eonon Android 5.1 and 6.0 unit which you can watch it, it's the same for GA7163. We are working on 2GB units for Mazda currently, but not sure when it will be released. You can stay tuned, thanks!

Hi Inferno, thanks a lot for your purchase! Yes there's a video comparing the Android 5.1 unit with 6.0 unit for BMW E90, it's the same case for Mazda units too:

Welcome more guys to check this useful video!

And Inferno, welcome to share your nice installation pics and reviews once you have got our unit, thanks a lot! :grin2:

Installed my Eonon device today.

Did install backup camera according this video:

See my video here:

Some glitches, like you can see in the video, radio works, but cannot change anything. So after a reset everything works as normal... hope they can fix that

See pics here, the view isn't optimal but it works


Speed is a big improvement over my Ca-Fi Dashlinq4 device (but that was expected)

Also installed the DAB+ device, first results look good

i cant make out if the color temperature of the screen is any better from that video since it's only 240p quality but can you take a picture of google maps (not of your location obviously) so we can compare this lcd to the last one? seeing as it only has 1GB ram i'll probably still skip it but I need to do something since i've given up all hope on the 6163. not for eonon's lack of trying, they've kept in contact to try and work out the problems but spotify + google maps is too taxing on 1GB (~800MB for video card?) ram, period

Yeah that video just prove to me that the device is still a bit laggy. It's almost impossible to run a smooth ui and multiple apps (maps, and Spotify) on 1gb of ram. Most android phones can't even do that with 1gb of ram.

This unit is a no for me. Will just try and shop for a 2gb version on aliexpress

Disappointing

Wow, very disappointing. After all this time, after all the comments on the other thread for the 6163, and still a lousy 1 GB of RAM and a lousy CPU? Seems like a waste in design effort when it is CLEAR that 1 GB of ram is simply not enough for this unit to run smoothly. Damn, raise the price by $50 or even $100 and and use 2 or even 3 GB ram and a better cPU and your units will sell like hotcakes!!! Until then, based on all the problems others have had, not willing to buy this supposed "ungraded" unit.

I agree 1000%. It's probably a game of margins where they can still make a profit off each unit but why can't one of these manufacturers actually make a high end unit that may cost a premium but has the specs and screen quality to justify the higher price? I would immediately buy it if the experience was the same as a budget phone or tablet

Hi guys, thanks for your feedback and concern. We are actually working hard on 2GB RAM Mazda head units, but not sure when it will be released. We will inform you guys once there's any more news. :wink2:

Btw, GA7163 and GA6163F is not only different on Android system, but also different on internal framework, design, and hardware. The CPU of GA6163F is RK3188 1.6GHz Cortex A9 Quad-core, and CPU of GA7163 is Allwinner R16 1.8GHz Cortex A9 Quad-core. You can see the frequency of GA7163 CPU is higher.
And GA7163F has 12GB storage for apps, and GA6163F only has 2GB for apps. Thanks!

These changes make no difference if the unit still does not operate as smoothly as it should.

Got an update from Eonon for the not responding to commands.
Radio screen got a make over, not sure if I find it an improvement. Have to see if the problem is still there, well report later.

Today was driving to work and noted that DAB+ radio starts stuttering as soon as I switch away from the DAB+ app

- Also I'm not sure if I should remove the screen protector. Is that one different than the one delivered with the device?
- Another point, why the device reports "AV Off" to the Mazda display when using any other app then radio? Just mention APP name or something
- Instead of the Frequency in the Mazda display, why not mention the RDS name as in the Radio App?


Seen in this vid:

@Inferno, no worry we will continue helping you out.
For the DAB+ issue, we have sent you another software by PM, you can have a try then.

And here are the answers to your other questions:
- You can remove the screen protector if you like, depending on our own need.
- We are not quite clear about this issue, it's better for you to take a shot to show us, you can reply to my message with this picture.
- The LCD screen can only display radio frequency, only in radio mode of our head unit, the RDS can be displayed. Hope you understand, thanks!

Hope it helps!

Got an update from Eonon, however nothing changed...


still stuttering, also they now said I should do a complete factory reset, so had setup everything again...
Also I should select as model the "Model choose--->Select VW(5.3.19,CONFIG,NODVD,1Din FZ,Rohm37xxx,TEF668X)"

Which I did not do, no idea which one I have to choose now...

Hoped Eonon would fix this base problems, this should come out of a normal test :(
