      I'm not sure if root is allowed on the ROM of these units (doubtful), but if if there is root access, you can mod the build.prop and spoof your model in there. That's where the market makes the "compatibility" determination. Perhaps we can get Tommy to slap a GS4 model number in there.

      Does the stock radio have RDS?

      I have the non-NAV radio, but it does tell me the station name, etc.

      It's best to get the dual connector as the AVIN comes with a single one. You can get those at crutchfield or enfig for pretty cheap. I have read mixed opinions on what the dual is. Is it separate FM and AM? Either way best to get the dual. Radio reception is slightly worse than oem but nothing that noticeable. I haven't tried AM yet.

      what do you mean by "radio reception is slightly worse?" is that in reference to sound quality or ability to tune in channel reception?

      Sound quality is just fine. Reception is a bit worse but no different than any other aftermarket solution. It will NEVER be as good as OEM for whatever reason. But again when reception is good sound is great.

      Hey,

      Was outside plasti dipping my rims gun metal black then i remembered that I was going to post here lol

      SO, here's my ramble about the fakra to din adapter. (antenna adapter)

      I had originally ordered the dual fakra to din, Enfig shipped to the wrong address, it returned to sender, were fools about reshipping, so I contested via paypal.

      Enfig makes a mistake and for $15 USD they would rather be idiots than fix their mistake. Not dealing with them again.<endEnfigRant>

      So I used the single fakra to din that came with the head unit. My FM is awesome reception, so is AM. No problems whatsoever.

      Now the more I think about it, the reason the car has two antenna connections is one for Sattellite radio (shark fin) and one for radio (back window). So if you make sure to plug into the right one, you'll get great reception.

      Somebody mentioned the play store and restricted dl's - I haven't noticed anything restricted.

      Thanks Dickson! I didn't order one of them since I have all my music on SD cards. But glad to hear that I'll get reception if I do listen to AM/FM.

      Do you have the ODB2 adapter also? I ordered one and also have the Torque application. Can't wait to make good use of it on the AVIN 8" instead of my Note 2 screen.

      What music formats will this play? I have most things as FLAC, but I can batch rip to MP3 if that is all it takes.

      Being Android, you should be able to download a player that is compatible with your preferred format.

      [QUOTE=Shotchacokov;85430927]See page 1[/QUOTE

      not sure who you're referring to on page 1. I know Dickson purchased the previous generation 7", but I am referring to the generation with 4.1. if the 7" had rsd, I'd have bought one already.

      Ahh, I didn't realize he bought the older version. Figured you'd see his pics, etc... on page 1.

      Yes I suffer from the need for immediate gratification. I wanted to wait, I probably should have waited - but I just needed it.....

      Works for me too. I had it drop while I was placing my order. Could have been an update or flaky hosting.

      Ordered a 8" for my Touran... I had a slight problem with the online ordering process, but Tommy has been able to sort this out and all questions I had

      Does anyone plan to use iGO Primo with this unit? If so, what resolution, version etc. would be ideal?
