Future development from Pioneer ranked first in the ranking. Without departing from the canons external design, the Korean company released a device with a very nice thin frame and the ability to customize the backlight of the keys. Yes, there are keys, but a pair of them also has a touch control. On the back of the AVH-Z5100BT are three pairs line outputs to amplifiers, video input to a second monitor, connector for connecting a rear view camera, as well as AUX and USB with extension cord for output to the salon.
In general, the production standards for 2 DIN radio tape recorders Koreans didn’t break, but some interesting technologies, characteristic of premium models integrated. This is about Apple CarPlay and Android Auto systems that let you pair smartphones with a radio to expand the list of functions: control with using voice commands (Siri and Google), using navigation (each service has its own, however, the model itself has Waze Navigator support) and music playback with online services.
Well, the Pioneer AVH-Z5100BT is really worthy leadership in the top, and all else being equal, she was able to win Alpine’s user preferences.
- an abundance of connectors for connection (USB, AUX, line inputs, access to the camera-parking sensors, etc.);
- Support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technologies with their full-time navigation systems;
- the presence of its own navigation program (Waze);
- high quality picture on the display (Full HD resolution: 1920×1080 pixels);
- attractive design and touch-button combination management.
- high price.
The second line of the rating goes to the radio tape recorder from the well-known Japanese-Chinese company Alpine. High price predetermined her not the best sales figures, but not at all “offended” in equipment plan. The operation of the INE-W990BT can be described as stable, regardless of the type of executable program and connected playback device. Radio is excellent works with gadgets on the iOS platform (iPod and iPhone), as well as can play files from USB-sticks, MicroSD and AUX. It also has a voice interface, thanks to which you can remotely manage calls.
As for the navigation functions, here Alpine INE-W990BT is what to present to competitors. Card catalog from NaviTel includes roads in 46 countries with a whole base voice prompts in several languages, including Russian. When plotting a route, the navigator uses the current data systems, eliminating areas with congestion and repair work. As a nice addition to an existing package application manufacturers have provided connectivity rear view camera, which turns the car radio into a full device parking sensors.
- push-button touch control;
- the ability to integrate with devices from Apple;
- modern routing algorithms;
- large navigation base;
- the presence of a rear view camera.
- high purchase cost.
In third place is the CARMEDIA OL-7002 radio – more budget analogue of devices from Alpine and Pioneer with approximately similar set of functions. The model is based on the Android platform. 6.0 (with the ability to upgrade to a more current version), due with what can use applications from the Google Play Market. Nothing it’s surprising that she is prescribed an application as a navigator from Yandex, installed in the system by default.
For the performance CARMEDIA OL-7002 meets the 8-core microprocessor MTK 3562 with a frequency of 1.5 GHz – budget chip, Installed on mediocre tablets. However, no freezes and braking during operation will not occur, even provided that the internal space is fully downloaded by files. IN as a supplement (albeit less quality, but more large) in the radio there is the ability to connect two cameras – respectively rear and front view. Outwardly she looks good: combination of gray plastic with red backlight buttons (despite touch control, there are buttons) It looks advantageous, especially when hit in the color of the interior. IN In general, a small loss in the quality of implementation of everything looks very appropriate, especially in light of the reduced market value.
- optimal ratio of cost and quality parameters execution;
- pleasant visual performance;
- based on Android 6.0 with full Russification interface
- voice control capabilities;
- high stability of work.
- lower quality compared to leaders.
FarCar s170 Universal (L370)
The FarCar s170 universal car radio was created from practicality and needs of car owners Volkswagen, Seat, Skoda in a more budgetary replacement of the standard system. It has everything that modern technology standards require: powerful 1.6 Quad-Core Intel Quad-Core Atom x3-C3200RK Processor 1.6 GHz, 2 GB of RAM and a base on the Android 6.0 platform with the ability Upgrading to a later version.
Appearance FarCar s170 is very concise and pleasant, and the interface control combines a combination of keys and a touch screen (resolution 1400×600 pixels). For fans to listen to music with erased disk media, the developers left the drive, competently “removing” it to the top of the radio. As for navigator, then for domestic users they always the application remains from Yandex. However, the system allows install whatever your heart desires. In terms of quality, this model commensurate with CARMEDIA OL-7002, but limited use is not allows you to put it above the fourth line of the rating.
- The optimum ratio of price and quality;
- good design;
- Android 6.0 operating system
- Intel Quad-Core Atom x3-C3200RK as a processor.
- can only be installed on Volkswagen cars, Seat, Skoda.
RedPower 31140 IPS DSP
RedPower 31140 IPS DSP is a head unit for Ford cars (pre-styling Focus, Kuga, Transit and Fusion) with a pretty big price tag, but running a system Android 6.0 The variety of functions in it has almost no limit: ability to work with widgets and read information from the on-board network cars allows real-time control climate, view data on the direction and strength of the air flow, temperature overboard, etc.
As a navigation system RedPower 31140 IPS DSP uses the Yandex.Navigator application: a worthy competitor less productive maps from NaviTel and several other companies. Actually, all the pros and cons come from preferences users. A nice advantage of this radio is that it allows you to connect a subwoofer with a rear view camera without any intermediate devices. All functions work no crashes and slowdowns: processor availability affects Allwinner T3 Cortex A9 at 1.6 GHz and 2 GB of RAM. it a good analogue for regular systems, which, unfortunately, has a narrow circle applicability.
- Android 6.0 platform
- good characteristics of the processor and RAM;
- supports connecting subwoofers and rear view cameras;
- speed of response to program calls;
- the ability to connect USB drives and external hard drives disks (with an NTFS file system).
- full work is possible only on brand cars Ford
- high price.
The sixth line of the rating went to the MDD-6280NV radio from operating system-based Mystery Windows CE systems. This model was created with a clear bias in budget segment: there is nothing of those amenities that we used to seeing in modern on-board computers. With the exception of NaviTel navigation software that isn’t too friendly with speed on systems of this type.
However, in the MDD-6280NV with the stability of work is complete order, at least at the initial stage of operation. Despite the fact that Mystery can create nice designs (for which usually mediocre quality is hidden), everything is decorated in minimalistic style. And to the abundance of connectors, manufacturers have not forgotten add a CD drive which (like FarCar) tried hide at the top of the radio.
As the most frequently mentioned drawback of the model, highlight long reading information from a USB drive and the actual port inoperability at temperatures below -20 degrees Celsius. As a result, the option is not bad, but the quality is clearly not reaches out to his opponents.
- large navigation base from NaviTel;
- an abundance of connectors for connecting with various drives;
- the ability to connect subwoofers;
- stable software operation.
- obviously lower quality of performance than competitors;
- long reading of files from the carrier and “dump” of the USB drive at low temperatures.
