Thinking to get it. I currently have GA2162. Just wondering how quick wifi signals are on it? Considering it has no external wifi antenna like GA2162.

I was concerned about that as well. Seems to pick up WiFi just as good as my GA2160 did. All the Xfinity wifi going down the road it grabs. Much more responsive as well.

I just got this model. Like it so far but just a few things I want to change.
Any luck with doing anything with the home screen? or modifying it in general?
I am looking to change the home screen apps to something besides the preinstalled ones. and change the ugly ass clock.
I a trying to remap the NAVI button to something other than google maps.
Thanks

Hi, anyone who had this unit suffers same issue as mine, very low brightness, dim LCD screen, unpleasant to view in most time of the day, otherwise versatile in function, anyone know the issues or how to fix it, change firmware or hardware?
how this is compared to the similar faced pumpkin HU : AE0273B
Looks identical tome, and why one is 60 dollar more than the other? screen brightness ( different grade of light source, different wifi chip, etc....) Any one can afford to buy two of them and make a compassion review?

I asked the very question of pumpkin on amazon and this is what they replied

"We checked the list of Eonon,and we consulted with our engineer,he informs that the bluetooth and wifi module are different,we use higher chip for this model.

We guarantee that our products and customer service would not disappoint you."

i still went ahead and bought the pumpkin. the screen is fine i added a matt screen protector as for changing the firmware i have been unable to root it and the factory reset only wipes apps and a few settings. not a full return to factory settings (found that out the hard way)

I got mine yesterday. Super responsive. Have not noticed any issues so far. As far as the brightness, my truck is limo tinted, and my radio is at a slight angle. It really does not bug me. I like it overall. I have not tried to root yet, but that is my next step. I can confirm OREO 8 on the unit.

The unit is great. Far better than GA2162 but as expected wifi has poor coverage should have given that external antenna as optional.

Anyway can anyone tell me how to stop the HU to kill the app like my camera recording after it comes back from sleep. GA2162 never used to do it.

Hold onto the app icons for few seconds, it will ask to select an app.

No you cannot get rid off ugly ass clock but you can move the main page to end and modify the first page with widgets and icons.

Go to settings >navigation and there will be an option to select an app for navigation physical button.
