    Hi guys, back again with a question, what head unit should I use? Right now I'm just using standard fm transmitter to radio but I'm starting to want modern features like Bluetooth etc..

    Should I get a dynavin? Or XTrons with Android? They look very oem style, or something else entirely??

    Need guidance on this

    Those days, our choice were pretty much limited. Yes, Dynavin, Hualin n few others were in the market to serve that need. But nowadays, i guess there are a lot more what the market has to offer, from branded to nan-branded units. Even the big boys like Pioneer, Kenwood n few other are following suit to cater or the need. Heck even now it looks like the latest iDrive systems, with additional functionalities!

    How or where do we start? guess we have to look back at what ur gonna use it primarily for then ? make sense?

    Go with the HU with Android OS.

    I have used Hualingan long time ago and the app are rather limited due to Window 5 OS.

    Anyway, back to original HU as I dont use much of the unit except watch video and GPS
