Hi, there. I'm an aftermarket navigation radio seller from China. This is the online stereo: Aftermarket Navigation Car Stereo, Android Navigation DVD Player, Car Navigation Head Unit
We are a trade company, not manufacturer. We can find the best products and sell at a best price as much as possible(so we often change product once there is a better one). You will find that our price is much better than ebay, amzon or other sellers because we only need to pay the 4% Paypal fee, no extra cost. More than one thousand members here bought our products in the past five years. Thanks for your guys.
Some of you may know that I gave a temporary solution for T1 with CD based Navi system to install an aftermarket head unit. It's the extension cord bypass cord. It's a pain that only four car speakers work when use this cord.
But now our latest Android 6.0 radio support the T1 with digital amplifier. It can replace all VW Touareg factory head units now, NO NEED extension cord for all radios. Plug and play. With the latest Android 6.0 OS, you will be able to install most apps you want. So I post this thread to push our latest Android 6.0 head unit to the market.
Price US$349 plus US$35 shipping fee worldwide, 3-5 business days for delivery via DHL/FedEX/UPS/Aramex.

All CT members can get a free wired backup camera. Please left a comment when place the order "CT member, please include free wired backup camera as gift, promised by Allen on CT forum".
Online order link: Volkswagen Touareg Android 6.0 OS GPS Navigation Head Unit
This is the Android 6.0 head unit:



This is the free backup camera, it replaces the license plate light:


Thanks for reading! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Allen, It's a shame this happened after I had purchased the Unit that I did. I am still willing to buy from you if you can convince me to buy.

Right now, My HU isn't even secured properly into the touareg. The mounts are cheap, and if one pulls the HU out more than once, the metal prongs become bent, or don't catch, nor let go. The reception is terrible, and I still have a whine, related to something we already spoke of.

What are the advantages to your unit? Obviously it already comes with 6.0 android. Is it rootable? I want to add audio controls that are only available upon rooting. I'm not interested in overclocking the CPU, if the machine is fast enough.

It also comes with a backup camera, which is nice. I'm including the link to mine, so you can compare the two.

Thanks

So here is my suggestion:
1. You can get a new set of the mount from me or the seller you bought from. I gave you the solution from another customer in your thread.
2. Please add the FM/AM booster adapter for reception.
3. For the hissing. As I said in your thread, it's because the audio signal from RCA jacks are not strong enough, then use the High-Low audio adapter. You can get this from us or the seller you bought from.
4. As you know, as a seller, we don't root it before sell it to customers. But there are a lot of threads on xda forum FYI.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Hi Allen,

The head unit looks great. Just wanted you to confirm that this unit will work with the standard Touareg radio (no nav) on a 2007 model (this is the facelift model)?

And will all the steering wheel controls still function? I am unsure which model of canbus I am running though.

Also, will this unit fit into the dash (have read many posts about other radios not fitting correctly and having to do some removal of plastic to get the radio to fit).

And then lastly, what is the expected shipping time to South Africa?

How easy in the install of the backup camera? Almost all posts have people saying they haven't done it yet, making me think its more of a pain than its worth.

Also along those lines, I love the tracking lines that move on the stock system in back up mode showing exactly where my wheels or a trailer will be; is that still a feature on this system?

I'd buy one of these today, cause if its android I can download waze, and thats the only gps I will ever use (which makes CarPlay a no-go for this iPhone owner).

The stock system supplies the camera signal as an rgb signal, much like the vga input the older style computer monitors used.

Any chance that we could rig up an RGA to composite adapter to use the stock camera with the guidelines with the composite input of the android radios? That would be ideal.

What is the radio reception like with these new units? Is it absolutely necessary to have the radio booster with a facelift model Touareg?

I am also guessing you do not get data displayed from the radio on your dash. What will now show in that menu with the new radio? Can this menu be disabled?

Also does your offer of the free reverse camera still stand if I purchase this unit?

A RGB to CVBS adapter should work. But we have not find such an item for VW Touareg so far.

Yes, the radio booster adapter helps a lot to improve radio reception.
There is no radio/media/Navi info display on the instrument panel. But fuel consumption, average speed, milometer and other info works as before.
Yes, the free camera is still available. Please leave a comment "CT member, please include free backup camrea" when place the order.

Hi Allen,
I'm about to purchase unit from the site. Can you tell me more about the Apple Carplay add-on? Is it fully functional Carplay interface?

Hey Allen,

I am planning on ordering the Android 6.0 head unit with the Apple Car play dongle. Can you send me a comprehensive installation guide for the unit? The one on the product page isn't very good. Do I need to cut/solder any wires? Or is it plug and play? Also, how does the Car Play dongle work with the Android based system?

Thanks!
Looking forward to doing business with you.

Head Unit Won't Fit

Hi Allen,

I've just received my unit and after the breezy wiring job, I can't get the head unit to sit flush with rest of the center stack. I've tucked all of the wires out of the way of the unit within the center stack, FYI. Is it a bracketing issue? I also got the Car Play dongle, but it won't recognize my phone no matter what cable I tried, do I have to wire it a specific way? Last thing, the higher pitches in some songs seem to cause noticeable crackling with my speakers, and that's not happened before with CD's or the radio, is there a fix to this?

I am other wise very happy with my purchase.
Thanks.
