Sucks I bought their 7153 and then they released 7153A 3 months later lol. But I've been happy with it.

Hi Jaber, we have always valued the recommendations of each of our customers. We released the head units with 1GB RAM & Quad-Core earlier. After learning the needs of our different customers, our R&D department took great efforts to research and development. Nowadays we have 1GB RAM & Quad-Core, 2GB RAM & Quad-Core and 2GB RAM & Octa-Core for most of Android 6.0 car stereos. They are with different prices on sale and we offer different choices to meet the needs of different customers on the product. Hope you understand, thanks!

Hi MeanGreenGTI, as we all know, Android system is updated so fast and frequently and the mobile phone was released with Android 8.0 version earlier in March this year.
But there are differences between the car stereo and mobile phone. We must ensure the stability and the compatibility between the car and head unit. Each time We found the great feature of the new Android system version and we always wish our customers can get it at the first time. Relatively speaking, Eonon car stereos are updated fast which are just shown the characteristic of Android system. Hope you understand, thanks!

GA5153F update

I have a GA5153F head unit for nearly 2 years now. It's a great unit but has a few limitations - STORAGE is a major one for me

For the past couple of days I'm getting Google app failures more and more. Is there a latest firmware i can install? I'm running Build rk3188-eng4.4.4 27112015:12:49

Can the O/S be upgraded to 5 / 6 ?

Cheers

Hi shawno, thanks for your message. We feel so sorry to tell you that it's not possible to upgrade the head unit GA5153F to the one with Android 5.1 or 6.0. However, you can consider on our new Android 6.0 GA7153A with 2GB RAM, Octa-Core & 32GB ROM. More details of Eonon GA7153A, please click here: http://www.eonon.com/Android-Car-GPS...S/GA7153A.html
Btw, could you please tell us your email, order no. or serial no. of your unit, or take a short video on the issue of Google app by email support@eonon.com? So we can help you better, thanks!

Hi MeanGreenGTI, it's not possible to upgrade the head unit with the system Android 4.4 or 5.1 to the one with Android 5.1 or 6.0 as it's difficult and risky. The platform and framework of smart phone Android system and head unit Android system are quite different. If you are interested in the newer version, you can consider on the purchase. Hope you understand, thanks.

Saw the video of the new Android, where it can split screen. That looks like a pretty sweet feature.

Has anyone installed one of the newer units (7153) and used an aftermarket backup cam? My GTI doesn't have a factory backup camera and I want to add one with a new head unit. Does Eonon offer a compatible backup cam?

Thanks for the links. The 8153 shows a photo of the backup camera in the ad. Is it included with the 8153? Will I need any addtional cables or parts?
