Alright everyone, we completely installed the sample head unit and everything went just as planned. The unit came quickly from China and it is high quality inside and out. I went ahead and listed the review below this post for your viewing pleasure.


How it will work:
This is how the group buy is going to work. The total price that is needed via paypal per unit is $315 and that will cover the 3% paypal fee. Again you can purchase as many head units as you'd like but you need to make sure you send $315 for each unit. Once two weeks or 50+ head units have been paid for we will start the closing the group buy to proceed to payment with the manufacturer. I am told that it will take 5-10 days for the head units to be received. Jim, is the person I am dealing with over there and he quoted 3-5 days on the sample unit and he was right on target. So we are fairly sure this quote will be met without delay.


What you are getting:
You will be receiving a brand new in the box In-Car DVD player with 7" Touch TFT Screen/SD/MMC Card Readers/BT/GPS/3D OSD Menu. This includes I-Pod Hookup, 2GB Map Space, Preloaded Maps, Navigation and Bluetooth capabilities. The specs are listed below.
>Slide down panel and automatically memorize the position of panel
>Built-in 3D cartoon OSD inereface
>Built-in Bluetooth and GPS naviation(optional)
>Built-in 4-channel inputs, TV tuner and AM/FM receiver
>Compatible with DVD, CD, MP3, MP4/SD/USB player (DVD-5, DVD-9, DVD-18, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW)
>Supports PAL, NTSC, SECOM auto switch
>Electronic and mechanical anti-shock with ESP memory
>4 x 50W high power output
>Camera input
>Compatible with DVD, VCD and CD changer unit
>Supports two-seat monitors
>Two AV output and two AV input
>Whole controlling for three monitors, display different source simultaneously
>Automatic muting when calling in
>AUX input can to connect
>Full function remote control operation

It does play both the DVD player and run Navigation at the same time.
It does need a few extra parts like wiring harness and antenna adapter and others to use with your car.



What you will need:
Nissan vehicle antenna adapter cable- metra- 40NI10
http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i12/plishboy15/P1163459.jpg

Stereo install kit- metra- 99-7402

Turbowire cable systems- metra- 70-7551
http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i12/plishboy15/P1163461.jpg

Those with out Bose (stock amped systems) need this instead of 70-7551

EGZ, was nice enough to get us some pictures and video of the head unit. I have listed these below. He has not written a complete review of the system yet but he has told me nothing but good things since he received the unit. I went ahead and posted pictures, video and comments from EGZ. I will keep the third post on this thread open for his personal review so that everyone can get a third party opinion first hand.

I thought price was supposed to be 250, no?
which parts will I need for an 08 altima?

Tyrant TT
01-20-2009, 12:04 PM
Foques that was the price without the Navigation, Bluethooth and I-Pod hookup. We decided we weren't going to order some with and some without so we are going for the fully loaded versions only.

01-20-2009, 12:08 PM
gotcha...
how about me second question?
My lady is getting one for her car, and I would be responsible for the parts order - want to make sure that all is correct when I do get them parts.
thanks

01-20-2009, 12:10 PM
I can't supply that type of information sorry man. I would assume if you took the list of what you needed for the Z a stereo installer could tell you the equivalent for the Altima. Sorry again I couldn't be of more help.

Also in the picture of the head unit's screen, there is a plastic protective cover over it. Thats what you see there.

Keith350z
01-20-2009, 12:13 PM
Parts listed are Nissan parts, not Z parts. So Id imagine they would be the same as long as the Altima was in the range of years that those are listed for.

just go on crutchfield or metra and put in the car and it will tell you what harnesses you need. Then buy them off ebay for 2 to 10 dollars each. Buying one of these for the maxima and moving the Alpine 9815 to the 300zx to replace a sony xplod (don't want to deal with putting a double din into that 300).

Sorry just to much stuff going on to get a meet going for this.

Expandibility...

I see a bunch of wires including a pair of RED and WHITE that come out of the bottom of the HU. Are those RCA (R, L) connections for an external AMP?

Or do we need to purchase the kit 70-7551 with the 2 harnesses and jacks to hook-up an aftermarket system?

And last, it says Nav and bluetooth "capabilities". It does come with a DVD w/ nav info correct?

GG Vin. He messed with you once before and made you sound like you were an idiot on this forum and you never learn lol.

But what is the difference between this HEADUNIT and say some HONG KONG crap like this:

http://cgi.ebay.com/7-Car-DVD-Player-GPS-Bluetooth-iPod-MP4-Stereo-Samsung_W0QQitemZ190278740039QQcmdZViewItemQQptZCa r_Video_Navigation?hash=item190278740039&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1234%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C 240%3A1309%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50

Looks like pretty much the same thing actually.

Tyrant TT
01-21-2009, 10:48 PM
All double din screens look the same but it's not even close if you look at the buttons. Either way Yitongroup who produces these, makes head units for Ford, Toyota, Buick and others. They have quality products not ebay stuff. Maybe I'm wrong though...You have no idea who made that EBay head unit.

Yeah Chris is right about those ebay cheap $hit. And I believe this GB is legit! I am just afraid of the quality. So please Please EGZ give us a review! EGZ you should get used to the unit and use it for week or so then give us a review! I don't think just using it for day or two is not gonna be enough time for you to really know the product!! And if i may i want to see it in person! I think EGZ goes to Harper college right?? I can meet you up in school if you don't mind!! Please PM me. Thank you

There is one pair of aux in (r,l) so for a camera of some sort and one pair of rca going out.... so if one has a bose system then the 70-7551 is required with a 4 channel line out put converter which converts speaker wires coming out of the head unit into rca's ( i will show pics of this when i wire it up) so the rca's on the harness plug into the 4 channel rca's then you can use the rca's coming out of the hu for external amp

comes with maps pre loaded on an sd card that is already in the unit

egz
01-22-2009, 01:13 AM
EGZ, can you get a vid of what the GPS part looks like?

as soon as its installed in my car im waiting for best buy to get the line output converter so im very sorry for the delay in install it would have been done the day of but i didnt know that i was going to need this

egz
01-22-2009, 01:40 AM
And i just wanted to add that I'm very sorry for being MIA its been a hectic last few days with school and work and i havent been able to get online.

Like i previously posted I'm waiting for one more part to come in at best buy (i was told they got a shipment last night jan 21) and the part is suppose to be on the shipment. It is a 4 channel line output converter that i need because i have a touring edition with bose system (stock amped system) and i want to retain stock speakers amp and wiring.

So I'm going to try to pick it up today (jan 22) and try to install the unit in between classes.

I live in elk grove village, 5 mins away from woodfield, and go to school at harper. Anyone that would like to see the unit will be able to when i get it in. I'm also willing to do a CZ meet if that works for you guys. just let me know what you guys need and ill see what i can do.

thanks for all of your guy's patience and from what i have seen from the unit so far it is very nice and works well.


i'm on no ones side... but weren't the other threads closed for a reason???? so why come in his thread and start more bashing when the others were closed for the same reason. the mods obviously deleted everyones post so this could continue to go through with out problems for a reason.... so let it go.

I would like to agree with jeremy on this. I'm on no ones side but a few days ago (b4 all this) I trusted chris, sent out the money, and 4 days later got the unit. Have not had any problems as of yet with this buying experience. Just wanted to state those facts.

and anyone with anymore ?'s just ask!

I'm tired of babysitting and frankly swamped at work. Jeremy said it best, the other threads were closed for a reason, and Chris has been given a chance to prove himself with this group buy. You are paying with paypal, and you are 100% protected if you change your payment method to your credit card. I do this with ALL vendors regardless if I know them or not. Let's keep this thread clean.

Thanks for the response EGZ. I was hoping it had more than one pair of RCA's (because a pair for the sub (+ control) would be a plus), so I have to think about this.

yeah i believe everyone deserves a second chance too, thats y i did not say anything directly to chris. i was very skeptical when i 1st read larry's thread but after all, we are using paypal. paypal is 100% with buyers from my experience, so for all those people that paid for it should not be worry.

Eric,
We'll setup a pick up meet or anyone is welcome to come out to Bolingbrook and pick up the unit if they can't make the meet. As far as the GB closing...that won't be until a few days after the Chinese New Year is over so everyone get a chance to pay once they get their questions answered.

whats up,

So tonight i met up with EGZ to take a look at the new head unit. First impression is that it looks pretty good. Clean install by EGZ and it looks good in the dash. Keep in mind i had maybe about 30 minutes of total time with the unit. The biggest thing for me was how well the interface was with the control of the unit and the IPOD control. I was looking for ease of use cuz when Im driving I like to try to pay attention to the road. (haha) the controls are not to bad, it takes some time to get used to as with anything, but once you get the hang of it im sure it will be second nature. The IPOD control is pretty standard. its kind of a pain with the touch screen, but once you use the remote it got a lot easier. I have a lot of stuff on my IPOD so getting to the Artists that start with later letters (S-Z) took alot of button pressing but this is the case with most IPOD controls. We got my IPOD and hooked it up and in the beginning we had some problems, but we figured it all out. We were not however able to play the videos I had on my Ipod through the screen for whatever reason. If IPOD control is not a huge issue for you than not to worry. We also tried the blue tooth with his phone. It sounded great coming through the Z speakers, and the music stopped and the phone number appeared on the screen when I called. The microphone is built in to the unit so there is no need to attach a microphone somewhere on your dash which is convenient. The person on the other end said they could hear us clearly. The blue tooth defintely is a great feature on this Unit. Next off was the GPS. it took a while to load, but once it did it was pretty easy to use. you just type the adress and the map shows up. there is also a voice that stops the music and tells you when you need to turn. pretty nice feature. EGZ had it set to shortest route and it took us kind of an odd way to my house, so you might want to change the settings and play around to get the best route to where you are going. The main menu is pretty easy to use, just touch what you want tuner, dvd, GPS, etc.. there was a good EQ to mess with the settings so your music sounds the best. The DVD player played DVD's and the screen looked great! Over all this is a good unit and you get a hell of a lot of bang for your buck. The 30 minutes i spent with it were short. Im sure once everyone gets this and they play with the controls and everything will become more intuitive. If anyone else has any questions about the unit let me know. Hope this helps some people out.

thanks for putting this much effort into the write up!! I've been meaning to get some one elses opinion about this unit that has had a touch screen b4 because this is my first dd so all the options seemed ok to me because i had nothing to compare it to.

There were a few things i wanted to add now that ive had alil more experience with the unit:

-you can view Jpeg images on the unit i just havent figured out a way to change the backrounds with those images (if there is a way)

-MP4 format video's play without a problem so get all you need to do is get a file converter on your comp and watch any video's you want on this unit

-It is possible to watch videos, play music, ipod, sd card, play radio while operating the gps and if you are in route but on another screen (say watching a video) it will still turn off the music and tell you about up coming turns.

again anyone with ?'s about functions of the unit just let me know and i will try to answer them or figure them out on the unit!

Is there an option for satellite radio on the unit?

oh good ? umm im not sure how does a satellite radio hook up look? i mean there are a few outs and ins on the back of the unit so it could be one of them.

Non are specified as satellite radio but there is a Spdif out, ipod hook up, aux in, aux video in, cam video in, r&l out, and 2 video outs

there is also a radio ant in, tv ant in, gps ant in, and a gps socket (i dont know what the difference is)

Krn, from what I have been told you can run radio and navi at the same time. As far as mp3 I am not certain. I will try and ask EGZ on AIM and let you know. Also just FYI I have a new exhaust we are bringing over from Japan called ISIS. It's very similar in looks and sound to the HKS dual. It's a month or so out but it's extremely nice and the price isn't going to be a whole bunch much more then this head unit.

Either way I will get back to you on the mp3 and navi.

Dibs on exhaust!!!!

And yes i mentioned it in a post b4 that you can play mp3/dvd/cd/ipod/sd card/radio in the backround while the gps is doing it's thing and you can troggle between the two.

Another nice thing is when you need to turn or the gps tells you to do somthing it turns the music off, says it, and continues playing.

Same goes for when you bluetooth your phone to the headunit. When you get an incoming call it turns the music off (sound goes through speakers and there is a built in mic on hu which when i talk to ppl though it they hear me fine.... buhdaG, Luis _Andrade, and DjGenuine have seen this in action so ask them wat they thought of it if you have ?'s) and pops up on the headunit with the number but no caller id = / guess you cant have it all but its still really nice and you can answer the call from the hu so you dont even need to take your phone out of your pocket!

like ive said b4 this is my first touchscreen but im very happy with it! it works well, the touchscreen is very responsive, and looks good. cant ask for much more out of a touchscreen thats priced like a single din head unit:cheers:

Alright well here is the deal. I asked my contact our questions and he said...

Q: Can the head unit handle two screens at once and if so can they watch different items like MP4 on one and Navi on the other.

A: I'll have to check with our engineers.


Q:Can the unit be hooked up to our factory steering wheel volume, mode and station controls?

A: The current sample unit cannot but the revision might be able to but he needs to check with the engineer.

After this I asked about changing the background picture and he said they could do it at the factory prior to shipping or leave it the same. Then we got into verifing the price one more time and from what I gather he can add the functions if they aren't already part of this unit but it would change the price per unit. I told him DO NOT change anything on the price. So if the unit doesn't have those functions we won't be upgrading the unit to add them sorry. Either way I am suppose to know for sure tomorrow morning on these two questions.

The group buy is now closed. We will be depositing the money from Paypal into our bank account and then will transfer the funds from there. It will take 2-3 days for that money to hit our account and we will do the transfer the same day. I will be keep you guys up to date. Thanks.

Update: Just wanted to let everyone know that we finally got the money from Paypal into our account. We are transferring the money to Yiton Group tomorrow morning and from there it could take 24-48 hours to clear their account. I will keep everyone up to date but I figured i would give ya details so everyone knows the current time line. Thanks!

gotcha...
how about me second question?
My lady is getting one for her car, and I would be responsible for the parts order - want to make sure that all is correct when I do get them parts.
thanks

http://metraonline.com/fit.aspx

That site will show the parts that fit, ebay can be confusing sometimes and makes you think you need a special part for certain years that cost twice as much (like the wiring harness for 06-08 models). Search for the model number and it will come up. Hope that helps.

Maybe there is a missunderstanding on what a pre-out is. I mean can I hook up my RCA's from my Amps directly into the units RCA plugs which are sending out a signal that is not amplified. Usually they are 2v or possibly 4v or 5v.

What you referenced looks to be a line convertor which takes the copper output wires that would normally go to speakers and converts that amplified signal to a RCA connector for use by an amplifier.

yes the unit has RCA's and i have my subs connected to them but i also had to get this special harness for my car since it has the bose system.

The harness converts the signal coming out of the hu (that would connect straight to the stock speakers) into an rca signal so the bose amp can pick it up and not over power the stock internal speakers.

Im sorry im not that great with systems since this was my first install of one so that y im havin a hard time explaining it but i did some research and the way i have it hooked up is still working great and the subs pound soooooo much harder now than with the stock hu!

if you still have a ? let me know an ill try to clarify better

Chris, can we just pick it up from you directly?

Yes, you can pick them up straight from me. You have two options in respect to that...

A.) You can PM me and I can give you my home address in Bolingbrook and we can setup a pick up time.

B.) You can PM me and I can have the head units waiting in Naperville at our new facility there. If this is what you want to do we will have to set a time and date due to limited staff being there during the day due to us still setting everything up.

Other then that we will try and meet Saturday or Sunday for a mini pick-up meet.

Hey Chris would it be possible to pick mine up in naperville tomorrow around noon? Also I have a truck and live in chicago. I live by Wright college on Montrose and narragansett in Chicago. So if its ok with Chris to pick my unit up tomorrow I can pick any one elses up if they want and you guys can pick them up after 6 tomorrow when I get home from work since I will be in naperville doing my route tomorrow, so I won't charge no gas money or anything to pick your unit up.

Tyrant TT
03-03-2009, 12:40 PM
No one will be available in Bolingbrook till around 2pm tomorrow. That being said if you want to come then that's fine I just need to know your paypal account email and bring your receipt. As for anyone taking units for other members goes...I will need to make sure the other member writes me via PM on this board and tells me it's alright to release their unit to you. Let me know

ohhhhh k. Well it turns out one of our fine customers got his head unit installed and everything works great! Thats great news but apparently his head unit came with all the maps for every state other then Illinois. I know thats crazy but it's true. That being said I have already notified the manufacturer and they are:

A) Either providing new SD cards with new maps
B) Providing a link where you can download the maps
C) TBD

Has anyone here figured out how to get the gps to work with the radio/dvd/cd/ipod yet? EGZ said to hold the mode button for a few seconds while in one of those modes and the gps should appear but it just changes the mode or turns the unit off.
