I don't know if it would work. Be aware that you might get signal/noise issues if you extend the cable to far. A cable with individually shielded relatively thick wires would obviously allow you to extend further than thin unshielded wires.@techy101 or someone else, can you please confirm the nature of the ribbon cable connecting the screen to the main unit? It looks a lot like an regular IDE cable. Is that so?
Due to the specifics of my car, I'm looking to get a unit, that I can install in addition to the factory system. The idea is to hide the main body in the glovebox and run cables across the dash, to a display mounted in the center (so I need to extend the cable by a significant amount, didn't saw an extension on their page)
Yea, that's my concern also (and also the cable would need to pass relatively close to the existing radio navigation unit (and probably next to a speaker) . There seems to be an option though: 40 Pin Shielded cableI don't know if it would work. Be aware that you might get signal/noise issues if you extend the cable to far.

I'm not saying you will have trouble -only that it's possible you might...
I'm using Screen Filter...however it can only be configured through it's notification, and these units appear to not show them (wtf?). I installed an app to display it's notification and just uninstalled it after I configured Screen Filter...I can't remember which one I used, might have been Recent Notification. Just be careful not to set it so dim you can't see the screen.
That's with about 50% of the sc9853i and uis7862 units: either it works or it doesn't. After all these years Joying (or actually FYT) still didn't solve it.
They will not admit that it is an IDE cable, but you are right, it is an IDE cable from the old days and nothing special. Joying will tell you otherwise in hopes to make money selling you a "special" cable. They just used the IDE cable since it has the necessary amount of pins they needed and since it's already an actual product, they dont need to do R&D to create a new cable.
There are quite a few choices in launcher UI's on google play store to choose from (car launcher pro, Car web guru.... etc). You don't have to live with the joying version.
You are mixing headunits now, and I think on purpose too. Dasaita is on a completely different platform from Joying/FYT/Teyes/Navifly/etc. Dasaita is based on RockChip PX6 CPU, the headunits we are discussing in THIS thread are based off UIS7862 CPU. You're comparing oranges to apples here. There's also special UIS7862 units with Topway TS10 MCU which have a completely different OS structure, so those do not apply here either.
