very good observation, I noted since day 2. I tried both slots with a offline maps, it works, noting that sided by side aslo opposite direction of insertion the cards. there are many fine thing need to be improved, this HU or similar units don't have design team or period before the production, justlike assemble and go, pack and sale generic type. but again it's half of the price of a sony touch screen.

Gps slot is on the right, near the display.
Someone have a problem with a noise from the speaker?

I have send a message to eonon via messenger and they send me the link for a firmware upgrade EONON-px5_8.0_kld10_ota_20180131.rar

Now i try this one but probably i install the Malaysk Custom ROM , but i'm not sure because this rom is too younger.

has anyone already installed this rom on this hu?

Is it possible to get the firmware from you?

[QUOTE=capo76;76246148]Sure.

Thanks for sharing, thoughts and you're abs right, the GPS SD slot is medial ( near screen) located, and when you insert it in that slot, the system will display GPS (SD icon), if in the other slot, no GPS and only SD icon, but I tried both slots, downloaded maps can be read on both sides,
Interestingly enough, I can't imitate the GPS driving direction, I can only use the maps, and of course Google voice /assistant is not working if I don't connect to internet via WiFi. did you try offline maps GPS navi?
Online via my phone works as expected.
When the HU is engaged in night mode, is your side button illumination lights flick/flash at a fix interval or not? ( my case, is around 5-6s on and off.... very headache)

I tried many occasions during the day time, the LCD screen is wicked dim and lacking of acceptable contrast, so after a month, I can confidently say it's a very inferior quality ( I understand it's not a VA panel or Oled), but to this era, every portable GPS or android phone sold in Bestbuy or online, have a much better screen this this, ( with respect to the price),

For the gps i use waze when im online an here we go for the offline. I have download rhe map with my phone on the wifi home and then i have copied the file in my radio sd.
For the display i dont know if is a quality problem. The price of this radio is very low if you think an octa core with 4 gb ram. Probably the poor display is the regulatory of the price.
I dont have the problem with buttons illumination. Do you have connected also the illumination wire of the radio?
This model is also identical at the new pumpkin hu. If this model have a os best performance we can try a change probably, i hope

I buy this hu a month ago and install it to my car a few days ago. Its my first hu ever.
I have already reset a lot of times the hu because some google apps crashing a lot.
The steering wheel commands have lose the settings 2 times.
The most weird thing is that I reset the hu 3 times and the steering wheel setting was working after the reset.
I am thinking to install the custom rom but am not sure how to do it. (the 2nd sd card step confusing me)
What about this file from the eonon? How I install it?
