These android units are something I didn't know existed but look very interesting.
Do they link to a phone via Bluetooth or cable? Cable would probably be better to save battery life as my S7 isn't great
If you have a 4g dongle does that mean you can get info such as traffic on the screen but puzzles me how it would get the maps.
Sorry to be a bit vague but technology is not my strong point

Is this similar as I like the rotary volume control, not sure if this supports the diagnostic adaptor that the other ones have

Parking cams (I think you mean rear viewing cams) and microphones are not universal. It basically depends on the type of connector. Most cams can be connected but some require some fiddling. In regard to the microphone you should watch the impedance (not sure if that is the correct word :S)


EDIT: This is the rear view cam I used on my ZT-T. It works OK. It is connected to the video input called rear cam on my units loom.
I got an Xtron which turned up yesterday looks good but not sure if I need an adapter loom for it?

Hi Russ,


It depends on the unit you have now. I had a Highline and I just used the loom with the iso connectors. Some have the BMW connector but you should have gotten an adapter for that.


So it all boils down to removing the current unit and look for the connectors/loom that are/is present
