I thought a head unit like that would look crap in an old style dash like the xc90 and it had to stay original.
You've now changed my mind. I think it looks really well.

I have to say, the 10inch head end has totally transformed the cars look. It's no longer antiquated (charmingly or course). For me the secret has been the fact that the surround is utterly seamless.

In an ideal world, I'd have bought the pop up screen too simply for navigation. It really is a PIA, not to mention not very safe, to have it down there... I may even go back to my dash mounted Garmin for it cos it seems its always to be connected to tinterweb to get anywhere!

Gets 8/10 for rest though - radio is only thing that lets it down IMHO.

I noticed on the facebook group he's now advertising a 4 core option rather than the 8 core. Do any of you users know, was this the earler standardversion before his latest upgrades or is it just a cheaper less powerful option?

I know I can ask these questions directly but rather than struggle with the translated interpretations though i'd ask here.

Anyone have the spec of their headunit to hand?

None fitted hence my option to use a normal satnav.

Going again I'd prefer a make such as Kenwood. They may not do the android bit as well but they do radio & music much better & the Bluetooth works well. Hey ho 😁
