You are probably right, it would be a waste to have a uhd screen in 8inch for a infotainment system because all the scaling would need to be very high to make the text readable and icons usable which really defeats the purpose.I have a feeling this will be a FHD screen as mentioned in the video as opposed to UHD in the specs.
You have a good point there.Didn't see any navigation demonstrated at all. Likewise, as previous posters have mentioned, we need to know where the maps and updates are coming from.
Chinese head unit I have in my old Crewie, takes about 30 sec to load Nav, but radio & rev cam is instant.You have a good point there.
Most chinese aftermarket units use igo with cracked app/map packs because you have to pay for the maps.
It makes me wonder if this system is setup with the same thing.
Another important thing that people should keep in mind is the bootup time of the system because i have seen some android systems take 2 or 3 minutes to boot and that can be annoying because some of them wont show the reverse cam in that time.
I didnt mean the time for the apps to load i mean the cold boot time of the entire headunit(os).Chinese head unit I have in my old Crewie, takes about 30 sec to load Nav, but radio & rev cam is instant.
They say in the demo video it is compatible with the sensors.Concerned about how fast the system will be.
Someone also raised the point about front and rear traffic sensors. Any word on if these will translate on the unit?
Only time will tell I suppose. System specs seem good but it really depends on the implementation and how well it interacts with the VF.They say in the demo video it is compatible with the sensors.
As for speed they dont list the cpu type they just say 8 core which could be a number of different ones some are crap so hands on with cpuz will clear that up.
It has 4gb of ram which is very good and 32gb of storage.
So it will probably be ok.
yeah they are using a hd-link boxsaw this as well seemed like a good idea that may be superceded by the mentioned unit
I think they said in the video the Bi-Modal would be available in the settings.Really looks the goods. ALL of the car's functionality coming across would be necessary for me to consider switching. Reversing, HUD, bi-modal activation etc.
